Response to It seems u've never been on the floor with anyone besides GM PARKER
You make such ignorant and pathetic claims. I do not know you, nor do I care to; furthermore, I don't care what you think. Let me educate you. First of all, for your info, I was never on the floor with Mr. Parker. I wish I had been, but my Kenpo didn't begin until 1990, the year he passed on. I have, however been on the floor with more seniors (multiple times) than you will ever dream of being on the floor with. I will not name drop, but do your research before spouting off such nonsense.
"When it comes to results Mike, you keep confusing power with technque."
You need a reality check. You are wrong. Power and technique work as one unit when done correctly. I assume you mean technique as in proper body mechanics/alignment or form - which is the preferred way of describing it since when we say technique we mean five swords, thundering hammers, ect., but you probably have never heard of those.
"Proper tech is superior to proper power."
I agree that having proper mechanics of motion is the most important aspect of what we do. With establishing our base (1st rule of Kenpo for your info), we begin from the toes to the nose, not the other way around. Our lower quadrant must be articulated to lead our upper quadrant, which in turn allows proper mechanics, which then leads to proper power and speed.
"What makes Kenpo an Art? Is it the power or the tech?"
Depends on who you ask. Kenpo is a tailored art and everyone has his/her own style of the great system. So what makes it what it is, is up to the person you ask.
"You can not define power dud!"
You need a lesson in physics, DUDE (not dud). Power is the time rate at which work is done or energy is transferred. I can't believe someone of your caliber (or at least claims to be) would make such a drastic claim that power cannot be defined. Wow!!!!
"Come on people get your EP heads out of your as**es, and be true to the point."
And what "point" are you trying to make exactly? You remind me of someone who has dissociative identity disorder by placing six different thoughts from a couple different identities in one sentence.
"The heel up stance works best because proper technique comes better from it."
That's debatable and depends on the environment.
"Anyone can hit hard,"
"but thats not enough,"
Oh, yeah. It is if the guy drops. It also changes the circumstance.
"and it dam sure isn't the key."
I believe you meant to say damn, but it doesn't matter. So YOU HAVE THE KEY TO KENPO YOU KENPO GOD?
Keep it to yourself, oh great one.
