Tekki Shodan, also known as Naihanchi, is a very old kata. This kata is particularly useful for developing self-defense against attackers at a close range. The DVD Tekki Shodan presents the first kata in this very important series of three katas. The Japan Karate Association requires students to perform the kata Tekki Shodan when testing for the rank of brown belt (3rd kyu).
Tekki Shodan is a highly detailed, in-depth DVD presenting the kata with many different views, closeups, and angles. Each technique is broken down and shown in detail with explanations of the correct way to perform each action. Common mistakes are demonstrated along with instructions on how to avoid them. The kata is demonstrated slowly, with speed and using split screen from the front and side simultaniously. The kata applications are demonstrated slowly with explanations and with speed. Both the traditional kata applications and practical self-defense applications are demonstrated. (65 minutes)
