Kenpo, Taekwondo, and Necromancy. Now that's quite a combination!
I think with a few different types of rum added you get a zombie-but don't tell Hannibal.
I did find it fascinating that karateka need a kenpo instructor to teach them the bunkai for their kata.
Learn something new every day on MAP!
Actually it's often very beneficial to look at other styles to explore your own. I always say I learned more about TKD pattern application in my first 6 months of Kung Fu than I did in 3 years of TKD. My Kung Fu understanding has in turn been informed by wrestling, Judo, boxing, Kyokushin, Kali and others.
I totally agree (although it seemed I saw more multiple apps in my Karate friends' kata than they did! ) but that's not what KINKINDARk said.
It was this I was commenting on-
" if you already tarined for a long time in Karate or TKD, you can learn all KENPO skills in very short time, as Kenpo actually explained how to apply your pomse/KATA in real combat. "
"Actually explained". Which reads to me that Karate doesn't. But you and I both know better.
Yet if there was no substance to his statement then guys like Iain Abernathy wouldn't make a living. I'm sure there are plenty of schools where the application work is solely straight punch dominated one step and WKF style sparring.
I was a necro accomplice That's what I get for posting while tired.
True. Also true some Kenpo schools I've seen were mostly about sport karate sparring with flashy cartwheeling forms and toothpick weight weaponry but I wouldn't wish to make a statement implying they all are. Did feel his statement was an absolute,sure read like one.
" you can learn all KENPO skills in very short time, as Kenpo actually explained how to apply your pomse/KATA in real combat. "
Again-"Actually explained". Which reads to me that Karate doesn't,while Kenpo does.
Aww,it wasn't even a month old this time. It's OK,but if you're worried as you're a new member you can always point at Ben and yell "He started it! He started it!"
You probably won't even get sent to the principal's office.
Seriously, this is getting like the Chinese Styles thread, just let it go.
