Kakie - a key to functional in-fighting

Kakie is an Okinawan touch reference drill similar to the "sticking hands" or "pushing hands" drills of Chinese martial-arts)

Below is Sydney Leijenhorst's excellent 39 page booklet on Kakie (donationware)

While this booklet is focused on the topic of kakie it is actually also a decent introduction to many topics in the Ryukyu martial arts and is the best written introduction to kakie and its place in Okinawan MA I have ever seen
