    Default What is meant by "Motion" kenpo

    I have seen references to EPAK kenpo as devised in the 1970s as "Motion" kenpo. I have also seen the term "Commercial" used in the same context, or together with "motion". While I certainly understand what "Commercial" means, I continue to be somewhat confused by the term "Motion". Could someone please explain what this means, in reference to Kenpo? Obviously any martial art is based on movement so this term could be used to describe any art. How does this term differentiate the system as it was laid down in the 1970s from that which came before it, (such as Tracy kenpo) and systems like SL4 that claim to not be "Motion Kenpo"? thx.

    In re-reading your question, I realized I am not equipped to answer the question you asked.

    My response was to some other question - one that you did not ask.

    Doc Chapel will use the terms "motion" and "movement" to be 2 different things.
