I recently watched a Kenpo/Jujitsu class the other night at a local community center and found it to be intresting. I studied American Kenpo for a while a few years ago and had a blast with it, but couldn't continue because of problems with the instructor, but that's another story. Back to my question. What are the differences between what Mr. Parker taught in 1965 compared to what Mr. Parker was teaching at the time of his death? I noticed in the class I watched the other day that some of the material was the same, but named differently. Some of the techniques that I am familiar with were slightly different, such as the technique Five Swords. The way I learned Five Swords, the defender executed double handsword blocks, followed by a handsword to the throat, pivot into a forward bow and deliver a spearhand to the eyes, return to a neutral bow and uppercut to the abdomen, followed by stepping out with your left foot into a modified twist stance while delivering an outward heel palm strike to the jaw hinge, and finally spinning out of the twist stance into a neutral bow while delivering a handsword to the back of the neck. The technique called Five Swords I observed the other night started with double handsword blocks, then a handsword to the neck, pivot into a forward bow and deliver a spearhand to the eyes, spin out into a neutral bow and deliver an uppercut to the abdomen, then cover out. Is the technique know known as five swords in EPAK, the same technique known as Seven Swords in the older system, or is it totally something different? Overall, I really enjoyed watching the class, especially the Jujitsu part. Sorry for being so longwinded. Please excuse any spelling mistakes. HongKongFooey.
