Shuri Ryu Taezus

Taezu naru waza (continuous motion) begin and end with a block. Taezus are designed primarily to develop SPEED and FLUIDITY. Without taezu technique, a student tends to develop a powerful collection of movements which will not flow. Taezu will improve ability in body turning, shifting, stepping and changing directions with proper speed and fluidity.
