    ...a Kenpo Brother commented on how he saw my "light kenpo workout" on youtube. He said "I remember you being a lot thinner and with more hair a few years ago." So I looked at some old stuff and had a few laughs at my own expense. Here are some old clips before "the bulking and the balding" as my brother put it (at the time I was around 138lbs, I'm currently around 180lbs). Brother this is for you!....Jerk [​IMG]

    Got to love the way modern technology makes it easier to see how much you've changed over the years. You got some nice clips there.

    I agree, the clips are very well done, especially the one about Crossing Talon. I liked how it was broken down and clearly shown from different views. Having clips done that way would evidently provide for a good reference in reviewing them.

    I really don't mean this in a bad way, but your instructor looks like the guy who played Jerry Seinfeld's dad in the "Seinfeld" tv show.

    I'm no expert, but IMHO Mr. Hawkins does a very good job of explaining what he's doing.

    Sorry but I'm the one getting beat on. Not the one explaining anything.

    It's kinda weird how the old technology has a way of making people look thinner and younger. I think it has something to do with the lenses back then or something. :)

    Terrific clips---really good explanation of the techniques in the first one (my heart went out to you, though---no one needs to be armlocked, taken down and then hit with elbow and knee strikes that many times in a minute and a half...)

    Regarding Mr.Wheeler's demos on the clip, WOW... Does he hold dan ranking in judo/jujutsu? Also regarding Amy's comments about the camera technology. All I can say is, I think you may have something there,L.O.L..
