    ATTACKING AND DEFENDING FROM THE GROUND


    Fighting from the ground -- learn to fall also.
    Techniques that you can use when you are on the ground.

    ¯”DIVERSIFIED USE OF PRINCIPLES"
    As we learn to use principles of the past and apply it to the present so must
    we apply these principles learned in the future. Training to dodge blows
    should also teach one to dodge cars. Your martial arts training should teach
    you to overcome all obstacles and is not to be restricted to only those that
    relate to martial arts training. Martial arts training applies to all
    training.

    Once you find the exact use of principles as they pertain to you be consistent
    in its use. Does a bear have no hair in the cold or winter? Does gravity work
    one day and not another? God's principles are consistent, so should those
    principles that apply to you.





    ¯”NOTES ON KENPO IN THE STREET"

    Essential Basics for the Street - stances, blocks, strikes, strikes with
    blocks and vice versa. ”

    ”*** •Touch on multiple attacks. MULTIPLE ATTACKS -- logic used when attacked
    by two or more opponents.

    ”*** •Touch on club fighting

    ”*** •Opponent with knife - methods of countering

    On the other hand reveal how to use the ground to hurt your opponent, how to
    immediately react from the ground, to get away from your opponent from the
    ground, etc.

    How to apply techniques when on the ground (ground techniques).

    Use of cross-body block, tackling, slamming, ramming, jamming, smashing
    against wall, etc.

    Place eyes from the view point of natural and man©made weapons
    My rule(s) on the street.

    Cross body block take down.

    Degree of injury depending if drunk, real life threat -- the works.

    Does a baby continue to walk upright after taking its first step? No, he (she)
    falls only to try again and again. It is with time that a perfected walk is
    accomplished. So be it with the martial art.

    Relate story of Archie Moore -- fought guy who did not know how to fight.
    Couldn't figure him out.

    Comparison of fighting with that of a genuine meal -- first appetizer, main
    dish, dessert, etc.

    Shoot pictures in street clothes with appropriate background.

    How to handle a drunk or one who is on drugs.

    Have chapter of simple counters to Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, etc.

    This stuff is just too cool!

    I can't thank Ed Parker Jr. enough for sharing his fathers notes with us. It gives us further insight into the art.

    I believe I've heard something about the Archie Moore story before. I suppose it could be a "trap" that most of us could fall into. We get accustomed to working out with and sparring those that are trained to one degree or another, then when faced with an untrained attacker it could be awkward!

    Default Can we make comments & ask questions?

    I actually do appreciate the stuff being put here.

    I'm adding all of it to my files.

    Thank you for that.

    My question is, "do we need to swallow hook line and sinker those concepts and analogies UNTHINKINGLY?

    ...or can we make intelligent comments...

    ...ask indepth questions...

    ...based upon our own studies, our own experiences...

    Things like that.

    But if this thread is just to praise Mr. Parker, I'll keep my mouth shut.
    Just let me know.

    I personally see no reason to restrain commentary, with the understanding that the original author has long since passed beyond the veil, and his heir is not here to reply to query, and that proper decorum toward the honoured dead should be followed.

    These are most interesting writings, and the thought and intent behind them quite fascinating to read.
    Oh my dear Doctor, you have been naive! I am The Master.
    I am The Master, Lord of Time!
    I am The Master, and you, you will obey me.

    Of course we should question the material. I think Mr. Parker would have been disapointed if we didn't.
