Tekki Sandan - kata & application volume 26
Kata & Application volume 26 - Tekki Sandan.
In this video, 1 hour & 57 minutes long, John Burke teaches practical applications to the moves. Tekki Sandan is a complex kata, usually reserved for Karate practitioners of 4th Dan black belt and above - about 13 years training (minimum). And still people teach that it is for "fighting in an alleyway" or "with your back to the wall". While nothing is impossible, this presentation shows how the moves can be used to lock joints, throw people, and strike anaotmically vulnerable locations.
John Burke is sought out for seminars in the UK and teaches internationally. His books, and DVDs provide a comprehensive guide to practical Karate Kata Application, as do the articles that appeared in Traditional Karate magazine, Martial Arts Illustrated, and the e-zine Martial Arts Pulse.
