Hello fellow kenpo brother/sisters, this was a friendly discussion i had with some fellow kenpoist and friends that are in other martial art systems

What is your take on yellow belt training, some schools/instructors teach application plan and simple no variation no what if's , just yellow as its taught in the manual.

Some go a little further where they introduce minor tailoring and some what if scenarios where they can refer back to techniques they have already been doing, but still keep it basic enough where a beginner student can grasp whats going on.

Some (and this is where the discussion/debate really started) go into alot of what if scenarios, knife & stick fighting, gun defense, grappling & jujitsu locks/throws.

Now every instructor is entitled to teach how they wish, but what are some opinions on the so called traditional methods of teaching where the student learns the basics of the system(crawl before you walk so to speak)and as they begin to understand, you give them more concepts of the applications.

Or the more practical so called todays methods of teaching, where you throw everything but the kitchen sink at a beginning student, introduce all this new movement and techniques, concepts, all kinda scenarios, weapon attacks, freestyle movement, grappling.. ect
