    Exclamation A Point

    Welcome all to KenpoTalk

    Just a Point to be made.
    KenpoTalk is broken down into categories of the many branches of Kenpo.

    The Basics posted in this area, while a good idea.. May or May Not be how you were taught.
    If you post your basics in your lineage area- we can maintain continuity of the board.
    Every Organization or Studio, even if all Tracy, EPAK or any other 'branch' of Kenpo, may have their own curriculum.
    Something that I noticed already in this area, Where Hooking Wings is in our Blue belt - it is in another's Purple belt.

    Thanks ~!

    Just a side note, I am an idiot and often get belt colors mixed up. I should have said purple belt instead of blue.

    Aye,
    I have noticed some major differences between Parker schools, including which techniques go in what belt level. I believe Parker had them a certain way for a reason, yet I see such a vast difference in their interpretation of when and where to learn them. hmmm

    Some Kenpo schools teach the 32 technique system, others teach the 24 system, and others the 16 technique system. Some instructors teach extensions to techniques, others not.

    Ed Parker tailored the art to the individual, hence, one of the reasons why you get variability about how some of the 1st generation black belts teach the techniques.


    Best in Kenpo!

    Just remember it all has value.
    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.
