    Default Looking for Good Training Videos for Forms

    I found one good site so far but I am looking for some good reference training videos on the Kenpo forms without having to subscribe to youtube. I found this blackbeltwiki site that seems promising https://blackbeltwiki.com/american-kenpo-forms I am new to Kenpo and don't know if the forms are fairly universal or not though. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

    Check out casadekenpo on YouTube. I don't believe it requires a subscription.

    Is that the same guy that has his videos referenced in the blackbeltwiki link I posted with the thread? If so, thank you, his videos are great...I was able to learn and perform the short form 1 correctly in my first class this week because of that video

    I missed that. Yes, I believe it is. If you can find any of Larry Tatumís old videos, they are pretty good. The quality of the video of the old ones isnít like the newer stuff out there, but he moves better than 99% of the stuff youíll see out there.

    I found this set from Larry Tatum as suggested, rolls right through each technique nicely

    This is not a set, but a self-defence technique. Anyway, Larry's stuff is always worth watching, he moves better than most of the Kenpo guys you see on YouTube. (Beware, some are really sloppy!)

    As far as the question you posed in the OP regarding the forms being universal: Yes and no! Most studios teaching Parker Kenpo have the same forms in their curriculum, however, everybody seems to be putting their own spin on them. While this may be confusing especially for beginners, it is actually in line with GM Parker's conception of tailoring the art to the practitioner.

    When it comes to basic forms, I would say, Philip Sahagun is doing them quite nicely.
