Response to Re: Universal Pattern


Kenpo is an analytical study of motion. The universal pattern is a visual tool to be able to see that study visually (much easier for me since I am a visual learner). You see some will talk all day about motion with all the paths, directions, degrees, dimensions, etc., but to the visual learner hearing it can sometimes be hard to grasp. Looking at the visual tool one dimensionally gives a great visual of understanding it and you can then look at that on the 9 angles that it covers. Looking at it 3 dimensionally then adds another perspective.

Keep in mind that Mr. Parker stated about the Universal Pattern: "It's true value lies in it's interpretation." (Pg. 162 II vol. 2)

The Univeral Pattern was in Kenpo all along; it just wasn't devised right away.

Good discussion.
