Gerry beat me to the point. there is nothing new under the sun and the way people attack has not really changed. i have posted before about my general dislike of kenpo. the issue as i see it is kenpo was not a traditional art so it had no backround to base methodology on so it created its own. not a bad thing, but i find the whole "scientific" speal from Parker in a way disingenuous. when MMA come about it also created its own methodology of training but it had a testing ground to prove itself out and the pressure to actually get results. the mistake MA_Student that your making is thinking that it is the technique and attacks that have changed, they havnt. what has changed is the training methodology. we have moved from crawling to walking to horse and buggy to formula 1 race car. some kenpo and many other arts are still a few steps back.
