    Great technique. I like Scimitar, Crashing Elbows, Kimonon Grab, Raising The Staff and Aiming the Spear in the Orange Belt,

    All these techniques have their own unique attributes that made learning later much easier.

    When you guys mention techs could you give the nearest EPAK equivalent? I took some Tracy's in Aurora CO. one summer, and I thought because I'm one of you (if you squint your eyes), you could hook a kenpo brother up

    Kimono Grab is like Twin Kimono and Aiming the Spear share principles with Shielding Hammer.

    Then Aiming the Spear is half the Tracy art base, just as Sheilding Hammer is in EPAK.

    My mistake I was meaning Clutching Feathers but for some reason my brain always switches it with Shielding Hammer. This technique teaches raking the arm on the with draw.

    Not all of these techniques translate over as easy into the EPAK system because there are so many more of them.

    Oh my gosh! I'm having a major tracy kenpo flashback with all these tech names! There is a great tracy/epak equivalent chart on one of the other sites. It had been extemely helpful to me in translating to full epak. I'm sure it's been mentioned here before. It was created by Vishal Shukla. I'm having a little trouble pasting the text here, so here is the link.

    I am partial to Lever (Lone Kimono in EPAKK) as it is the first technique I ever actually used. But I do love Aiming the Spear and Grasping Talon.

    I think my least favorite Tracy's Orange Belt Technique is either Lowering The Gate or Crossing Guard. I don't think either are very useful to the system.
