Tekki Shodan - "Iron Horse Number One"


Tekki Shodan is the first of the three Tekki katas.

Embusen

There are two kiai points in Tekki Shodan:

  1. On the first ni yoko chudan tsuki (double middle level side punch), this occurs half way through the kata at the extreme left hand end of the embusen.
  2. On the second ni yoko chudan tsuki (double middle level side punch), at the extreme right end of the embusen (which also happens to be the last movement of the kata).

Tempo (speed)

The tempo of the kata demonstrated below has not been changed for filming. Everyone has their own tempo, however, it should remain similar for all forms/variations.

Demonstration of Kata

"Quality is easily promised, but often as not, seldom delivered".
