Kobudo Weaponry Volume 12: Tekko
It is commonly believed that Okinawan farming and fishing tools evolved into lethal weapons of self- defense when the Satsuma samurai clan forbade the peasants from carrying arms.
The tekko is a form of knuckleduster, which primarily derives its usage from that of empty hand techniques.
This video discusses the articles that have been historically used and that which may be presently employed as a form of knuckleduster. Additionally, the blocks, strikes, self-defense techniques, and kata for this weapon are described in detail. It is an ideal teaching aid for review, rank testing, competition, and self-defense.
