Tekki Kata

The Tekki group of Kata are traditionally practiced in Yoseikan Karate around the brown belt 3rd kyu level and above, this is to help prepare the student for the final accent towards the Shodan (1st Dan black belt test which involves a specific test of endurance whilst holding a horse stance.

The Name Tekki derives its name from the distinctive horse-riding stance (Kiba Dachi) In this stance the legs are held strong and in strict posture as if on horseback.

Tension is applied on the outside edges of the legs and feet so as to protect the legs from kicking attacks whilst defending from both sides and the front.

The brief video shows the Tekki Sandan Kata being performed slowly.
