    Hello...
    I do not think it is really any of those things for Tracy's Kenpo.
    So, what is your point?

    Have I seen better demonstrations? Sure. Have I seen worse demonstrations? Definitely.
    So what?

    What do YOU think?
    Thank you,
    Milt G.

    I don't see anything wrong here. It's just our techs being demonstrated

    There was a lot of broken posture and some weak angles, but over-all it wasn't terrible.

    For what it was, it looked fine to me.

    But I think Clark Kent is a dickhead.

    I know that now. But, I didn't know what a "bot" was until last year. Once I found out....he's definitely a dickhead. :)

    There is a move I hate which I saw in that vid, where the elbow is high, and he swings a chop to the throat like a pendulum. I dare you to defend that.

    He might be a dickhead, but he can fly.

    Looked like very good to great Tracy Kenpo to me. Most was the same stuff Parker originally taught before his later creations.
    I liked it. Thanks. Great job to the guys that performing.

    It looked like Tracy/Traco Kenpo circa 1980s. I have seen a lot so I can say as an authority. These guys were average so they were somewhere between good and bad. Yes, some of the footwork and blows were sloppy, but it's easy to sit back and criticize something on film. We all make mistakes if we film in real time.
    I have filmed myself doing many techniques that I intended to release until I watched the footage and saw the mistakes, then my ego stops the release to the public. I'm sure these guys would love a chance to touch up the video but hey, at least they were willing to share it.

    Single layered.

    He attacks once and then stops. Which is only ever half of the self defence equation. To follow up on a stationary target is not really a good maintain.

    So to have a good drill you have the first layer. He attacks you defend nail the guy and walk off
    Like you are mark hunt thanking Jesus.

    But in general that is half a defence. A better tool is to defend, throw a shot that forces him to defend. This opens up an opportunity to throw another shot and so having a short system of defending and then forcing an opportunity to counter. You can at the most basic level get away with a combination of a defence attack combination of mabye two or three techniques and then just interchange them until the opponent cannot keep up.

    This multi layered aproach will work a lot better if the person you are defending is actually fighting back. Rather than the method shown which basically dosent work.

    This was more of a demonstration of something like one step sparring. The multilayered approach would be more like free sparring.
