    Default Ed Parker's Basic Fundamentals

    http://www.amazon.com/Ed-Parkers-Bas...keywords=kenpo

    Available on your kindle for only $8.39

    The book goes through all of the individuals strikes in Ed Parker's Kenpo. It describes how to throw the technique and also where that particular technique is highlighted. As with most written sources, it isn't a good method to learn all of these techniques, but it is valuable to have a list of every technique (basic) and where it fell in the system.

    It is heavily influenced by the Infinite Insights series as to the basic breakdown (blocks, stances, kicks, punches, finger strikes etc.) and at the back of the book has a belt by belt chart with each technique and what belt level it is shown at. Also, included are various quotes from Ed Parker about kenpo and some of it's "rules".

    Overall, very good deal for the money and a good reference.

    I have the paperback and I think even the dead-tree-form of the book was worth the money.

    I've had this on my Kindle for a while now, and I don't think it's all that great. Contains information, I'll give it that, so it's useful. But, it's in serious need of a good editor.

    I didn't notice too many things, but I've only given it a cursory look through and not gotten in depth with it. I can ignore some editorial things if the information is still good.
