    Default Kenpo relationships

    Ask yourself these questions:

    1. What is the relationship between Protecting Fans and Darting Leaves?

    2. What is the relationship between Destructive Kneel and Flashing Wings?

    3. We do a lot of front crossovers with upward blocks, both in this Form and in the later Forms. Why? What is the value of this move?

    4. What is the relationship between Reversing Circles and Unwinding Pendulum?

    5. Bowing to Buddha is related to which Orange Belt technique?

    6. What is the relationship between Five Swords and Twirling Hammers?

    7. What is the relationship between Flashing Wings and Twirling Hammers?

    8. What form am I talking about?

    Enjoy!

    Yep, form 4 is correct.

    OK. I will start you all out since nobody else has answered.

    1. What is the relationship between Protecting Fans and Darting Leaves?

    The kick-poke in Darting Leaves (same side kick-punch) is a category completion move for the kick-punch in Protecting Fans (opposite hand and foot).

    Cool idea, Martin.

    Ok, then here is #2:

    The techniques "Destructive Kneel" and "Flashing Wings" use the same foot maneuvers – step-drag, push-drag, and pivot.

    Thanks Jamie,

    Nice job! That is exactly what I was looking for #2.

    You could add to that, by noting the last strike in Destructive Kneel is a downward diagonal strike; whereas the last strike in Flashing Wings is upward diagonal strike.

    But, you wouldn't have too.


    Then, if you looked at the Five Swords / Twirling Hammers footwork, you might see ... Neutral Bow - Forward Bow - Neutral Bow. In one instance, push-push-pushing away and the other pull-pull-pulling in. You might see that.

    Nice job! That is number 6.

    Five swords does show strikes going AWAY from the defender using PUSH power and Twirling Hammers shows strikes coming INTO the defender using PULL!

    Here are the rest of the answers

    3. We do a lot of front crossovers with upward blocks, both in this Form and in the later Forms. Why? What is the value of this move?

    The front crossover with an upward block is the standard method in Kenpo for moving from the inside of a punch (where we have to worry about the other hand) to the outside of the punch where we can apply over a dozen techniques.

    4. What is the relationship between Reversing Circles and Unwinding Pendulum?

    Unwinding Pendulum shows a downward block and-then an inward block, while Reversing Circles shows a downward block with an inward block to complete the category.

    5. Bowing to Buddha is related to which Orange Belt technique?

    Bowing To Buddha is Raining Claw in the low zone.


    7. What is the relationship between Flashing Wings and Twirling Hammers?

    Twirling Hammers is the mirror image of Flashing Wings.

    Salute,
