Tekkenomics Vault: Syllabus
- Last Updated: June 02, 2006
- My Comments: To go along with the theme of the Tekkenomics website being a place where you can go to learn more about Tekken, I made this Syllabus modeled after one of the courses I took in college (although just about every college course has one of these). And no, there isn’t an actual Tekkenomics course :).
