    Default Kajukenbo Alphabet Technique A

    The Alphabets expand to cover right/left and left/right combination attacks

    Alphabet Technique A. (right punch)
    a) step back with left leg into right forward stance/outward block with right,

    b) kick to groin with left/left downward palm-heel strike (with bone at base of hand; left arm comes up when coming up to kick, palm snaps down on forearm muscle of punching arm as kick strikes),

    c) step out left/right middle knuckle snapping strike to temple,

    d) step out and cover

    On tech B he leans away from the front thrust kick, and I was a little taken aback; however, over all this was pretty cool.

    Practicing the stuff using "formal" stances, etc. is a good way to help ensure that you don't have to think about hitting the stance when you're under stress, you've trained it into memory. Now, as to whether said stances are effective, that's another question.

    I would do one on someone; so, I train knowing it might happen.

    I've used reverse punches many times "in the street", and they work. Doc's stuff works too, I don't dispute that.

    I liked the video representation. Is this the first technique taught?
    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.

    I think mileage may vary on this point. Many people CLAIM that you will never see a lunge/step-thru or reverse punch on the street. And maybe these people haven't. But there is a reason we practice so many tech's against these attacks: they do indeed occur - especially from unskilled/untrained attackers. I remember distinctly the last fight I got into before I started my kenpo training. Was a young buck and it was over a girl (yeah, stupid, I know). Other guy sucker punched me. His attack? That's correct, a right step-thru punch. What's even more enlightening was my response when his initial attack failed. You guessed it - also a right step-thru punch. Your experience may be very different... and, just as valid. I'm just sayin...
