    No offense, but you really need to think about checking your oppenent's arm during the hammering portions of the technique. I would also think about your Outer Rim.

    The first move is not supposed to parry.

    i was thinking the same thing... once your right arm makes contact with your opponent it should stay in contact.. or that is the way we do it

    Question sir.

    At what point to you account for the width of your attacker, and prevent a continuous attack?

    Who do you train with and who is your instructor?
    Thanks for posting the vid.
    Did you know that after your left-hand kidney strike, the left hand should ricochet clockwise to keep your opponent's head from rising up?

    Hey,

    First thanks for your comment! Always fun to read what other people are thinking! I am going about checking my opponent's arm down in a different way. Fist, I will aplly the eye slice, and then I will hammer fist the groin. If his hands are still up, I will run.

    In our school a check can be a strike. Thus, if you strike first and where it counts--this can be your check. The above gives a very satisfactory result and also helps one to flow more using more circular patterns.

    Regards,
    Carl

    As soon as I apply the eye slice using my left hand. This is incorporated in my perry.

    This is the Members in Motion forum, and seems over the last little bit people's manners have been slipping. The Members in Motion forum is for our members to share clips of themselves and for positive feedback only. If you wish to fully disect a technique you see here start a new thread in the kenpo general section. You may copy their link to that new topic with the permission of the original poster, if they do not wish you to use it in the new thread just link back to the original thread you found in it.

    Lastly, only members can post clips of themselves. No one else is to be posting a clip of someone in this forum.

    This was not directed at any one person. And the same rules apply in every Members in Motion thread. It takesa lot of guts for someone to share clips of themselves and for them to be tore down on what they have shared can be very disheartening.

    The same goes for the thread with the 9 clips of SL4. people should not be trying top tear down what they see, positive questions are encouraged, positive feedback more than encouraged, but let the negativity reside elsewhere.

    Of course I did ask a question.

    That's the AKKI method anyway. I don't believe the original technique was written with it there (not to say it was never inserted). I'll check my old manual tonight, or someone else can chime in.

    I don't think anyone was harsh or disrespectful in their reply, or anyone's "manners are slipping" . I checked the sticky before I posted and it says "Some friendly critisism is always welcome, but no one wants to be torn to shreads." I just gave some things to think about and he can either take them or not. No one is bashing him. Carl posts many vids and is great for putting them out there.

    As I stated in this thread, it isnot just this thread. People have been making more and more critical comments in the Members in Motion Forum. I would have made yet another comment in the Stickied thread but it always seems to be ignored so I chose to use a thread that I knew people where posting in to make sure peple keep playing nicely. This thread has been very tame so far, but a few of the recent ones have had some serious debate and that is not what this section of kenpoTalk is for.

    Carl, keep up the good work. It's great to see someone posting their stuff. I would love to join the frey, but, I don't have the technology, or the permission from my higher-ups. I can't wait to be "shredded", lol!
    Road Runner, I'll see you in a couple of days. It's going to be an awesome camp!

    I have see some students at seminars use a parry block. Some will actually execute the parry block and the reverse hammerfist/ridgehand at the same time as the blitz in on a 45 angle. I guess it depends on the opponent and what you are looking to accomplish (and if you one is talking about "true" EPAK. )

    Again thanks for sharing. Great job.
