    Default OK, here goes

    I dont have them yet... but I'm working on them.

    I really don't have the space for forms in my apartment, so I wont be doing that, perhaps I'll do finger set (if I can remember it lol) maybe striking set 1... and some techniques. Any sugestions are welcome. Also lacking a camera man the angles will be horrible. But anyway, I hope to have somehting up by tonight.

    Don't you believe it. You have the room to do forms. One of my sons students made the excuse that he didn't have room to do forms so he didn't practice them. My son drew a 4 ft. square in chalk on the floor and did all the forms for him within that square. Have jumping kicks? go for hieght instead of distance. There are many ways you can practice forms in a confined area. Another Martial Artist That I know created his thesis form while he was in prison. His moves were confined to his cell as they couldn't practice Karate in prison. There is always a way. Try it draw a square and try to confine your moves within it. You will be surprised what you can do.
    Good luck with it.

    most Respectfully,

    Just get a tripod and give it a whirl!
    I'm going to try and do something soon, myself.

    I feel you on that one, Brother! My divorce should be final by the end of the month... and all my crap from the house is now down in my "Garojo".

    That makes it kind of hard to get a good workout in... but, I'm trying...

    The thought of going into some dinky efficiency apartment is NOT appealing!

    You can also practise your forms stationary and concentrate more on what your are doing with your hands. If you want to move to practise getting your angles right, take smaller steps.

    It is no fun I can tell you that. My kenpo brothers and sisters have been here for me as a big part of keeping me sane through it. Anything I can do let me know.
