    Insert - To add a strike or strikes into a technique that were not included in the base technique.

    Prefix - To add a strike, check or additional block to the begiining of a technique that was not included in the base technique

    Suffix - To add a strike or strikes to the end of a technique that was not part of the base technique

    How can we take this and use it with compounding?

    When Inserting, Prefixing, or Suffixing with a technique if done proplerly they continue to move with the flow of the technique. Many times the additional strikes are perform while executing another strike, thus the compounding of a technique. A lot of times these additional strikes if not made very overtly ebd up being hidden with the technique.

    Make a move do more than one thing- as with a block that continues to a strike, or an elbow strike that whips to a back knuckle on the return.

    edit: what Rob said- Mr. Speedy on the keyboard beat me to it ^%#@ !

    So everything can be brought back to letters, words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs. Then modification terms can be closely associated with grammatical terms. I read about this in Mr. Parker's books, but seeing it put link that in this context really brings it home for me. I am so glad I found EPAK on my journey in martial arts.
