すき足

Hello,

I have found in a old book about martial arts the name of a technique for walk and move, especially into the grass : suki ashi.

すき

There's only the pronunciation in kana, so it's hard to find what is the matching kanji for "suki".

And here is the comment about this technique : 足でそつと草を根元で分けるようにして歩く

    I've never heard it, either.
    I only know, 抜き足, 差し足, and 忍び足.
    XX足 seems to refer "how to walk."
    XX=how
    足=walk, foot step

    https://www.fleapedia.com/五十音インデックス/ぬ/抜き足差し足とは何か/抜き足差し足忍び足
    ぬきあし さしあし しのびあし

    抜き足差し足忍び足とは、音を立てずに歩く方法を短い言葉で適切に表現したもの。ぬかるみから足を抜くようにそっと持ち上げ(抜き足)、爪先で床を差すようにそっと下ろす(差し足)、それが人に気づかれないように歩く(忍び足)コツであるといっているように、忍者や泥棒をこころざす人の基本ステップである。

    However, I cannot find すき足 on Google, except すきあし‐がえる【×鋤足×蛙】.
    This means "a frog whose foot shape resembles すき (harrow)," which is completely different from this context.

    I imagine that すく of すき足 in this context might be 梳く in 髪を梳く.

    梳く(スク)とは - コトバンク

    I'm curious about the context more in detail.
