    Default MT: New EPAK Student

    New EPAK Student
    By stoneheart - Sun, 27 May 2007 15:25:16 GMT

    ====================

    What should a [hypothetical] new EPAK student be concentrating on in the first few months of training? Suppose he has a background in classical karate and is familar with stances and strikes from traditional systems. What questions or common themes should he focus on, especially if he will be taking private lessons only?

    Hello my Bruda....
    WELCOME TO KENPOTALK!!!!!!!

    1st and foremost, do exactly as your instructor says to do. Ask him/her, them, specifically about what they want you to be practicing on while at home alone!!

    I too came from more "traditional" hard systems, and I had plenty of habits to break.
    First task: Learn to RELAX. Kenpo will remain elusive to you until you can relax while in motion!!
    Don't try to compare the Kenpo stances too much with those that you knew before, learn them for what they are as they are. Act like you have NO experience in any martial art yet.

    KEEP US abreast of your progress!!! Tell your instructor about KenpoTalk and that you find some advice on here.
    NEVER put anything you read on the internet, from here or other places, above what you learn/hear from your instructor.
    Dance with the one that brung ya!

    Your Brother
    John
