    Default Kenpo Principles: Mechanic of Motion

    Mechanic of Motion: One who can dissect motion, inspect it, understand it, and reassemble it.

    What does it mean to you to be a Mechanic of Motion? What are the advantages of being able to analyze motion in this regard? How do you teach/learn to become a Mechanic of Motion?

    I like the metaphors that Mr Parker used: salesman of motion, mechanic of motion, engineer of motion, etc. They are great ways to communicate a lesson.

    However, I personally don't study kenpo from a motion perspective. At best, I would like to consider myself to be a poet of metered motion.
