Hello, Go to Eclipse's Kempo(yahoo) and read the rules of Kempo. Sounds alot like Bruce Lee's teaching? Bruce is usually credit for teaching/learning for your own ways of fighting ( Jeet kune Do). It seems Kajukempo has been doing this before he was born.
In most of my classes/ other schools we were always taught to adept to our body size and shape....If your teacher doesn't? Why? Maybe you should change? and When fighting different size people it makes sense to adjust your fighting skills.
Do you really believe Bruce Lee saw things other systems didn't see? There are some many Instructors who are still teaching before Bruce Lee, of combinations of styles within there own schools, and to fight that fits your body design. Longer legs-kick more..so on.
Take a good look at all the past systems and see/notice they all have change some what. (Old ways to today ways)
Universal(our system) came from Kajukenpo, and also from real street fighting. Lots of strikes and no one way to fight. Universal (all purpose)...Aloha
This is just my point of view.....thanks
