TAEKATE - Imperian Online Help

9.11 TAEKATE

Most of the Taekate abilities are affected by a variety of factors. First,
being in a stance modifies the damage and speed of each Taekate attack. You
will always want to be in some stance or another while using Taekate. Second,
the higher your Taekate, the more likely you are to hit an opponent with a
particular attack, and the more damage you will do with that attack.

The advancement system of Taekate is a bit different from the other skills. You
may progress to a certain level in the skill, and then you must be tested to
see if you are worthy of a new belt. A test consists of successfully completing
a kata, which is a series of moves, in front of a master, who has either black
belt or at least three belts above you. To practice the form, you DEMONSTRATE 
the form. At first, you will have little chance of completing the kata 
successfully. With more practice however, your skill will improve and your
chance of completing the form improves. When you are confident that you can
complete the form without error, find a master to GRADE you.
