    Hello everyone,

    My name is Matt and I'm a 28 year old male. When I was a kid, I took Kempo for 6 years and it really had a big influence on who I am as a person today. I've always been into martial arts and I've been wanting to get back into it. Just wanted to surround myself with some like minded people. I look forward to discussing martial arts and whatever pops up with everyone!

    What's your opinion about Kempo's

    1. special fighting stance with back palm cover the shoulder and leading arm drop downward?
    2. ridge hand skill?

    1 is the set up for 2. Any incoming straight punch can be blocked and deflected by a circular ridge hand (or hay-maker).

    For those wondering, and for myself, I assume this is the guard you're referring to? The first one is the guard statically, and the second one (guy on the left) is a fluid guard based on it in sparring.
