In my class last night I discussed with our students the multi planar aspects of basic Kenpo techniques.
i.e. rotational torque, body weight transfer, kinetic and gravitational forces etc.
These are the various directional planes of energy that cumulate into the three things that Kenpo techniques strive to attain; SPEED, POWER, AND ACCURACY.
So, starting with a simple-yet complex movement that will be familiar to all,
-The transition from neutral bow to forward bow then back to neutral while using a particular natural weapon- let’s begin a discussion choosing only one aspect, as to leave room for everyone to participate, of this movement. We can then, after this has been “hashed out” start another discussion of fundamental principles that are the common thread of this “alphabet of motion” that is American Kenpo Karate.
