Karateka's internet post concerning the display of tekko contained a statement that tekko were related to Chizi Kun Bo.
I mentioned this weapon by description because I had forgotten the name.
At GEM's Summer camp a few years ago, a guest instructor who was a world traveler, and had his following, conducted seminars. He had lived in Okinawa for years and was fascinated with Uechi's similarities with White Crane, which was his style.
He taught a kata using the Chizi Kun Bo, which, as I mentioned in my previous post was a simple weapon consisting of a wooden dowel about one half inch thick, fist wide, with cone tapered endings and a couple of rope loops for finger clenching.
The sensei explained that this weapon was derived from fishing net grasping instruments used to pull up and retrieve fishing nets.
Always remember, that if an instrument is not bey name category or description, one of a prescribed units as a dangerous weapon, this does not preclude the intended use of the same as a dangerous weapon.
The same could be said about a No. 2 pencil when used to attack a person.
Tekko are weapons per se, but a chop stick can be employed as a deadly weapon.
