    There are four defined kenpo types:

    Iron Worker = Strong in Physical Training

    Watch Maker = Strong in Technical Training

    Philosopher = Strong in Philosophical Training

    Business = Strong in Business Training

    How do you rate yourself as your strongest to weakest points, if you are not a school owner ignore the business part.

    Im going to say Watch maker as strongest...if Im training, then Iron Worker comes second, because Im very physical...I tend to let myself work on instinct, especially when it comes to our fighting class

    If Im teaching, I would say philosphical comes second...when Im teaching, I try to remember every little thing about the technique I can...plus, I tend to get bombarded with a lot of "can I do this?" and "what if this happens?" especially from the kids... its important to get them to use their mental capabilities...kids really force you to think, Ive noticed

    I used to focus on Ironworker training. Be bigger, hit harder, win by unmatched aggression in combat, etc. Now, as I'm gettnig older and more rickety, I'm switching focus to watchmaker. Philosophy has always been part of life for me, and have never personally met anyone who did well in the arts, for a long time, without and inherent philosophical framework in which to plug their training.

    Something in there about old soldiers, and bold soldiers, but no old+bold soldiers.

    Clear mind, clear movement. Mastery of the Arts is mastery over the Self. That in this moment, this motion, the thoughts, memories, impulses and passions that cloud the mind must yield to the clarity of purpose, and purity of motion.

    I'm an Iron Worker at heart but heading towards the Watch Maker with each year. There's only so many years you can pound steel. LOL

    I used to be more of a watch maker, but now I am more of a dead even split between watch maker and iron worker.

    I'm the guy that makes the soup i have the power to make it anyway i please
    so in a very strong way it's like kenpo you have to make it fit you.
    with the soup you can make it fit your tast, :ie a little pepper, salt
    some meat , what i'm saying is it's kenpo 1st you have the front horse stance
    well that can be the pot that you make the soup with,than with the FHS you put your hands in chamber, now that the broth and you just keep adding as you go alone, and when you get done you have the "STAR BLOCK"
    stop and look at this and (i hope) you will see what i mean, i use this at my school and it works for me.

    Iron Worker, Watch Maker
    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.

    How do you rate yourself as your strongest to weakest points, if you are not a school owner ignore the business part.
    How does one become 'strong in philosophical training'??

    "Drop and give me the 10 main propositions of Spinoza!!!!!!!"

    oh...well.
    ME?
    During class-time I'm probably 85% Iron worker - 10% Watch Maker and 5% Philosophy.
    After class, 60% Watch Maker, 20% Philosopher and 20% Iron worker (working Kenpo on my own and/or lifting weights / doing cardio).

    Business?
    working on it, I'm in "Basic Training" there.

    That's a tough one.

    I guess I would be: watch maker, iron worker, business, and philosopher in that order.

    Watch maker, working hard on Iron Worker, Philosopher is pretty tertiary, and Business is so far down the list I shouldn't even qualify it as an approach.
