Taiji Kase and Tekki Sandan

Taiji Kase

Some say, tekki katas were the foundation of karate as it was taught in Okinawa. In any case, their motions indicate a close range defense situation, which requires fast and strong arm techniques as well as a heavy and rooted stance. One of the few, who mastered the tekki katas, was grand master Taiji Kase. Take a look at his excellent performance of tekki sandan in 1992.
