Just making an assumption, but I think a lot of people do not respond, due to them never having been in a situation where they actually had to defend themselves. I have met many martial artist that have never been in a fight, not even in school or playground. That's good and it is a reality for them, but for others it is not a reality for their students. I want to know how do they train for the streets. Also the instructors who have not used their Kenpo before for defense of self or loved ones, what do they use to instruct their students to enable them to handle a real life situation.?
We've added a saying in our class before we start each class and before we leave, which breaks down "Discipline, Respect and Honor" my prayer being that they will govern their lives by the terms and teachings.
I think most people are more fascinated with the story book version of the art than the real life applications, and although Amen has created a lot of people who do not like him on here I would definitely trust him to have my back in the streets, because you might not like his techniques and forms, but the man can fight. My cousin and my instructor has vouched for that and these are 2 people I trust with my life.
