Tekki Nidan (Horse riding #2)

The name, Tekki, refers to the distinctive feature of this kata (and the other two Tekki forms), its horse riding stance (kiba-dachi). The legs are set in a strong, straddling position as if on horseback, and tension is applied to the outside edges of the soles of the feet with the feeling of gathering the strength in toward the center.

Chapel Hill godan Larry Lazarus performs his favorite kata, Tekki Nidan at the 2001 Pittsburgh 35th Anniversary Celebration.
