    Default Japanese Sword

    I was contemplating the relationship of (Japanese Sword B) to that of
    (Kenpo Shield).

    What do each have in common? What distinct contributions to either make?

    Also what is the relationship of both/either to the closing moves of short form 2?

    I often have people perform Kenpo Shield "left handed" accidentally because it is so similar to Jap. Sword B.

    What they have in common is very similar basic mechanics, with one being "the other side" so to speak, of the other. So, they contribute to each other in that way.

    I teach Kenpo Shield in a way as to explain the more precise targeting that is found in kenpo relative to karate. I teach it with the potential of a middle knuckle strike to the solar plexus or a half fist to the throat, and when I get to Short #2, I repeat that lesson.

    Could you do me a favor???
    I'm not a Tracy's guy, but I'm very interested in comparisons like this.
    Could you please type out the movements for these techs??

    Thanks guys.

    Japanese Sword B Defense against a right punch

    1. Right foot steps forward as you deliver a right extended outward block to the outside of the attackers punching arm.

    2. Left punch to the attackers ribs

    Kenpo Shield Defense against a right or left punch

    1. Right foot steps back as the left arm does a rising block underneath the incoming punch

    2. While leaving the block up deliver a right punch to the attackers body


    Personal Note: Both these techniques are ideal for sparring. Maybe someone should start a thread here in the Tracy's forum about what techniques are readily transferable to the sparring ring
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.
