Te

Entrance Requirements: No Attribute or Alignment restrictions. Skill Cost: 8 Years (5 Years as a Secondary Martial Art Form)

Te, or "Hand," is the most ancient martial art form of Okinawa, started sometime in the 14th Century. Because Okinawans were constantly forbidden to use or practice with weapons, they ended up developing superior "empty hand" combat techniques. Likewise, all the weapons of Te are really converted farming tools. This weapon practice is designed to be more practical than ornamental.

A master in the art will never attack without reason, and will not even get into a ready stance until actually attacked. A common tactic is to pretend to be helpless and ignorant, while at the same time trying to talk peacefully with the aggressor. The instant that an attack is launched, the Te master will go into a stance and spend the first melee round dodging and parrying. From that point on there will be attacks at every opportunity, using about two hand strikes for every kick attack.

Learning Te is easy for anyone from Okinawa. There are experts in the art in every village, and secret techniques are usually passed down through the generations. Costume: Black Karate outfit.

Stance: Feet a shoulder's width apart, both knees partly bent, forward fist extended at navel level, and rear fist pulled tightly back to waist.
