    Default Technical Breakdown

    Are any of the KenpoTalk members who use this area interested in doing a breakdown of various techniques?

    Personally I think it would be a great way to explore the techniques and get a better understanding of all the Self Defense techniques found in the Tracy System.

    I am currently not studying the Tracy system, and haven't for quite a few years, but I do still own all the manuals, and videos. Tracy's was my first style, and while I am no longer a student of that Branch of the Kenpo Tree, it still holds a certain fondness in my heart.

    I am sure that if Dave and I start working on the technical breakdown of the Tracy System several others will jump in.

    As a starter to this idea, who teaches several formalized basics before starting techniques or do you jump right into the techniques and use them to teach the basics, or do you start the technique and teach each individual basic as it comes up.

    Please elaborate your question a little more. Are you asking if uses the Equation Formula, or teaches the same way a person is taught to read and write.

    Is a student taught the basics, then the basics in a series of movements and then in the variations of these movements. Or are the movements taught as one then discecting them down to their individual counterparts?

    I have seen it vary from school to school, and I have that very question already started in this thread. I am waiting to see what the Tracy guys have to say for their schools.

    I teach the basics first, then the techniques. My curriculum has specific basics for each belt level. I feel that by requiring the basics as separate entities, we are forced to study them on their own merits, rather than as part of a technique. When I test students, they will perform reps of basic movements as part of their test.
