    Default Sword set?

    So I've always heard in passing reference that sometime in the mid 60s Mr. Parker created a Japanese Sword and a Chinese Sword set. Despite my best attempt, I can't find a breakdown of these sets anywhere, or even much info about them. Who made them? Was it a colaboration between James Woo and Mr. Parker, or was it after their falling out? I see that the Tracy brothers still teach it as part of the higher level black belts? Any idea where I can find a breakdown of how they are performed?

    I seem to recall that the katana kata that is taught in the Tracy system was adopted from another system, it didn't come through Mr. Parker.

    That Sword Set has a really traditional feel to it, definitely not Kenpo inspired.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Take a look at the "Singing Dragon" Sword form performed by Sifu Dangeruss's Student Kimberly. Is is on Members in motion. It is from the White Lotus system.

    I don't know of any Parker created Sword form.

    I am most Respectfully,
