Tekki Shodan Moves 1 and 2

The first two moves of Tekki Shodan. There are several different ways to practice these first two moves, some Dojo move slowly as the left foot comes across. Some Dojo lift there leg straight on the second move, some cross their arms on preparation of the second move.

This is just the way i practice Tekki Shodan, indeed, I have black belts who practice it differently to me and i encourage that. Black belts should explore and experiment with different ways to execute these techniques. What works for one, doesn’t always work for another. Oss!
