    Very nice extension to Thundering Hammer. Boot camp literally LOL.

    That was cool! Very smooth and fluid. To me, it looked like a hybrid of "thundering hammers" and "dance of death"....maybe a "thundering death" or "dance of hammers?" LOL At any rate, outstanding technique! Thanks for posting!

    Awesome! That was fun. I liked the groundwork on Thundering Hammers.

    For those who have not met Pat he is one of the nicest guys around, and hits like a fully loaded freight train. He also has an incredible memory for techniques, and kenpo theory.

    That Thundering Hammers has at least two Planas Signatures in it that I saw outright. One is the way he checks the arm after the forearm to the body (most lines I've seen do a waiters hand or a stike down on the arm, Planas line favors clearing the arm out with the hand in a push down position while using the path of the forearm to clear. The other was the wrapping claw/downward backfist after the hammer to the neck. Something else about the timing between hammers and stance shifts seems Planas as well.

    The Flashing Mace into Leaping Crane is a common combo demoed by Planas guys too. I know others can do it too, but most I see that do that particular graft come from the Planas line.

    He also only did the regular neck break (right hand thumb up) in Leaping Crane extension and not the reverse break (right hand thumb down) that commonly precedes it. Another Planas trademark.

    Great post James!

    I had the opportunity of working Thundering Hammers over and over with Richard "Huk" Planas 10 years ago at Mike Cappi's streetfighting camp, and you're right about his emphasis on the points above.

    Larry Tatum posted a nice clip of the Flashing Mace-Leaping Crane circular grafting some time ago, and I love that graft as well too.

    I teach the reverse neck break in the Leaping Crane extension; good observation of the regular neck break.

    Hey, uncle C! I noticed the nail on the index finger on your right hand was not very neatly trimmed. Pretty sloppy man.

    Looks very smooth. Is it normal though to have your striking hand so far out to your side? It seems like a lot of wasted motion with little protection during the technique.

    I admit I am not EPAK so I may be way off.

    James
    The above is just my opinion.

    Thanks for the comments guys...But to be honest I wasn't really doing anything and I was moving sloppy and slow as hell. My friend Mik, who is a film director and writer just wanted me to do a couple techniques for him on camera, so I did. As for the Planas comments...I've only trained with Mr. Planas about half a dozen times at Seminars hosted by my friend, Mr. Pat Maguire, in London, Ontario...But I would love to train under Mr. Planas on a regular basis if the finances permit me to. He's a really good man, and as most know, he is an encyclopidia of knowledge...Not just in Kenpo, but also well versed in other areas and topics.

    Here is an older clip of a Demonstration I was involved with about a year ago in Sarnia, Ontario when Faron & Patti Whiteye from Turtle Island Martial Arts hosted thier tournament.

    Looking good ... I am being picky but you gapped a little bit in TH and had a "straddle the paddle" moment once where your groin was exposed.

    Like I said I am being picky (also could have been the angle of the video) over all looked really good!

    Hope you post more I really enjoyed it.
