    Flashing Daggers because it is the first technique in our system that employs the "continuous returning fist." Up to this point, many of the classic kenpo techniques have employed continuous motion, i.e., one hand doing all the work (Kimono Grab for example, the right hand does all the striking). Flashing Daggers is the first to employ both hands working back and forth.

    Darkness because I love the double brush parry block, and the eyestrike/palm heel/backfist motion is used in SO MANY techniques. I point it out as the "two hands crossing and one hits back" move. It is used in a variety of ways in the system, but the motion stays pretty much the same.

    I always liked Dtretching the Bow, someting about snapping forward with one hand to his neck as the other hand is holding wrist just feels so powerful. I also loved Turning the Handle, modified this became a great first attack when sparring. Flashing Daggers and 5 Swords obviously have to be on this list just because of all the small lessons they teach.

    You are right about Stretching the Bow. Sometimes I overlook it because it is so daggone simple and works so well.

    I have always liked it because of the simplicity, and it grafted so well into Drawbridge.
