    It's good stuff, but the title is misleading as that is straght up mma training.

    That was interesting. Mr. Perez has some great skills and great energy. There were a couple of things that bugged me...6 armbars and he didn't get a lock on any of them, he just quickly dropped the arm and climbed back in to the mount. I would have rather seen him done the move thoroughly rather than be in time with the music.

    Some of his footwork was really good, other parts He seems to have a habit of jumping in to a wide stance...I don't know if that is intentional or not. To me it looked kind of odd but...not everything that works necessarily looks cool. As odd as some of the stances seemed, his moves seemed very instinctual and natural. I think it would be even cooler to see him see him and similarly agile uke squaring off....I think the two flowing together would have explained the footwork better, at least to my uneducated eyes.

    I was really impressed with his bag work. I would have personally liked to see a bit more diversity in his round kicks, the only ones I saw connected with the instep of his feet, instead of seeing some that connected with his shins as well. If he *only* connects with the bag using his instep, that strikes me as a little weird. But all in all, I likey!

    Good find.

    I love it when a person has the intelligence to be specific in their praise, and the clarity of thought to be a good communicator.

    So many who praise sound like a Baptist minister. Ha-le-lu-ya!

    Thank you Carol.

    I enjoyed the clip too.
    I usually enjoy watching a proficient, traditional Okinawan karateka do their kata. Especially people in or related to the Ryu Kyu Kempo tradition, they tend to KNOW their Kyusho well and it shows in the specificity of their motion.

    The grappling element was interesting too!!!
    I bet he's quite the person to train with.

    That is an exercise for the mechanics of the armbar from the mount. It is used to develop the explosiveness to "get 'em". Normally it is practiced, well, more explosively and lively.


    Looks like well rounded training regimen between traditional and sport aspects.

    One of the nice things about Kenpo is that it's likely anyone attacking you doesn't know kenpo. Your opponent doesn't know how you are going to move and react. One downside of sport MMA, is that you are constantly practicing against people who have similar training. I think after a lot of practice with other MMA people, some people unconsciously start to widen their stances to guard against the opponent shooting in. This has the unfortunate effect of having the fighters get used to fighting at greater distances, and thus relying on their ground game more, as the standup becomes secondary and something you do just to ultimately go to the ground, instead of turning the standup into it's own bonafide pain center.

    You're too kind, Dr. John. I'm afraid sometimes I gravitate towards putting the anal in analytical.

    Thanks very much Sr. Mercado There is one thing bugging me though...if this a drill for the mechanics then why are some of the mechanics missing? IMO it takes more mechanical finess to secure the lock after you've tossed yourself backwards than simply tossing yourself backwards.

    AH! That makes a lot of sense. Thanks very much.

    I would say this looks closer to sport MMA. But that is the beauty of Ryukyu Kempo. It is probably the orginal MMA art. People took different aspect and added it to their own art to create Ryukyu Kempo.

    As for the armbars there are many ways to practice it. How he was practicing it, if he missed the arm bar he was getting back to good position. Not continuing to go for it and lose the lock and the position. He was also practicing it as a hip movement. Many people who go for this type of arm lock move the leg but not the hips and it is very tough to get it with just leg movement.
