    Default An angle Change in the Forms

    These descriptions are from the Kenpo Reference Guides on Kenpotalk.
    These descriptions match much (but not all) of what I see in clips of these forms.

    From Long Form 1
    12. Pivot into a right forward bow toward 3 o'clock as you execute a left punch to 3 o'clock.
    13. Cover (V-step- fall back into a cat stance, step your right foot to 6 o'clock) into a right neutral bow facing 6 o'clock, as you execute a right downward block.

    From Short Form 3

    3. Shift into a left forward bow as you execute a left outward elbow and follow with a right hammerfist that comes over and down onto their groin.
    Set 3: Twirling Wings (Right Flank)
    1. Place your hands at your left hip, left fist palm up and right fist on top in vertical fashion. Cover with your right foot by moving it to 4 o'clock.

    I am specifically thinking of the moves described here with the word 'cover'. I am wondering if anyone has any comments, comparing / contrasting the foot maneuvers at these specific places in these specific forms.

    Covers are quite usefull. I think of them as using gravity to move you off the line of attack. They are also quite fast when compared to stepping through or stepping through in reverse.

    One piece of advice: Stay down in stance, or it is a worthless concept.

    I will just keep talking as stuff occurs to me. LOL I believe the front covers that we learn in Short Form 1 are a basic building block, and without that study, you are really at a disadvantage when it comes to puting technique ideas together.

    It went a little too fast me me, but if you were to slow it down, and bend your knees till it hurt, you can look at covers as a release of that position.

    Yes. It is. Further, it is how I execute the move in question. It is, however, not how the write up exists in the Kenpotalk Reference Guides area.

    If we were not in a discussion about a very specific area of the form, I might have some comments, and questions on what is presented here. But, for the moment, I'll just comment that I like the credits in the clip a bunch.

    No ideas or comments on why one angle change is described as a 'V-Step' and the other is not?
    Is there some driving idea that suggests a reason for this difference?
    Of course, Mr. Durden did not execute the maneuver as written. Perhaps he is correct.

    Not about covers, but in Conquering Shield here the strikes are done while standing on one leg...
