Kenpo Salute
By JonathanMaberry - Tue, 29 May 2007 20:19:16 GMT


I'm doing research on hand positions as found in various martial arts (for an article I'm writing for The Journal of Asian Martial Arts).

One position involves the hands being held up, palms out, with index fingers touching at the top and thumbs touching at the bottom. It makes a rough diamond or spade-shape.

I've seen this in the Kankudai kata in karate, as a transitional movement in aikido and jujutsu, but I believe is also appears as part of the formal salute in Kenpo.

Can anyone verify this for me?
