    Default Ed Parker avi of Lone Kimono

    Hello,

    http://home.scarlet.be/kenpo/ click on Ed Parker.


    I noticed that on his first strike(a right palm heel) that Ed elongates the arm of his attacker and then strikes again with his upward block/ forearm. The opponent's arm is fully extended for the second strike. More so, I am sure he had no problem positioning the attacker's hand to insure the best angle for "disturbance!"

    Any thoughts?

    Yeah...ummm....what "palm heel" ? I am familiar with a couple of variations on Lone Kimono, but none of them...(Including the one in the video you linked) contains a palm heel strike?

    I mean, I know the "Ol' man" was fast....but apparently he was so quick I never even saw the palm strike?

    Unless, you are referring to the left hand pin, as a "palm strike" ?

    Otherwise my thought is..."Huh"?

    It looks like he is doing a palm heel with the left as he is ringing the arm down with his right; it's around the time he points up on a 45 while talking. I think he might be 'talking with his hands' and it looks like a palm heel. The guys head is coming down so maybe Parker put his hand there to not get head butted?

    One thing I really noticed was a similarity between Parker and Mills in terms of movement when he did the final strike with his right. I don't know how to explain it but it looks like he torques his body in the opposite direction to his strike and Mr. Mills does that in one of the vids on youtube. Come to think of it, I believe Doc Chapel does the same thing on some of his vids too. Wonder where they learned that neat trick.....

    He's just repeating the strike twice in rapid succession for emphasis of the point he is making. It's a common practice to repeat a movement 2 or 3 times back to back like that to reinforce the point.
