Tekki Shodan is the first kata of Tekki series (shodan, nidan and sandan). The kata name literally means “Iron Horse Riding”. Interesting fact is that some researchers believe Tekki Shodan, Nidan and Sandan, was one kata, later split into 3 parts. Whilst the kata is linear, moving side to side, the techniques can be applied against attackers at any angle. The side to side movements in a low stance build up the necessary balance and strength for fast footwork and body shifting. #sajka #kznjka #jkakzn #stirlingkarate #karinprinsloo #lovekarate #tekkishodan
