    I dont do Tekki/Naihanchi (its not done in most kyokushin factions) so if you say its Shodan Ill concede. As for calling it a version -well considering all the different versions of tekki/naihanchi there are (the main 3 and the many minor variations that differ one styles Tekki 1 from another styles naihanchi 1), this is certainly a version of one of them :-)

    I always wondered why Oyama picked the kata he did.

    I've seen videos of him performing Naihanchi, so it would seem he placed some level of value on it.

    I wonder why it's not a major kata in most Kyokushin factions?

    I swear Oyama just picked a handful of kata so people wouldn't give him **** for calling Kyokushin a karate style. The only one that seems to be universally appreciated in the Kyokushin offshoots is Sanchin.

    Yeah, Sanchin's the only one I can appreciate an sort of immediacy as far as Kyokushin fighting technique.

    He included a lot of katas, like Tekki, Bassai, Choun no kon and a few other into kyokushin in the very early days, that were removed later (only to be reintroduced some years ago by IKO1).

    The kyokushin Kata list was unchanged from the late 50ies to the late 90ies -even after the great split in kyokushin.
    It was not until 1999 or so that IKO1 under Matsui started to reintroduce them at the insistence of their senior shihan (Bobby Lowe), and they were not officially reintroduced into the IKO1 syllabus until the mid 2K.
    Some groups have played around with low level katas, variations of the taikyoku´s and so on. But that can hardly be called serious katas.
    (strangely, Oyama always insisted that the Taikyoku series was the most important katas)

    The reason the Kata was removed was strictly time limit that required either fighting or kata to be reduced. And Oyama was not likely to reduce training time for fighting training.
    Not that Kyokushin has ever placed as high importance on kata as most other styles anyway.
