    At the end he says "...alright go to work". Would going to work be copying what he did or some kind of specific drill for this concept?

    A ball park figure on just how many of these concepts are in Kosho would be greatly appreciated.

    I am reading Driscoll's book.

    I'll talk to sensei Bonk in a few days ( he lives about 5 miles from me) and see if he is still a member here. If so I'll see if he will answer your OP

    Hey Thank You! I really appreciate it. I have Ultimate Kempo on my nook and got the video file too so I have something to puzzle over.

    TaiChiTJ,
    The concept of triangles is the understanding that there is strong and weak points in structure on the body, and on the ground. The points of weakness is in the middle of the points of the triangle. The body is always moving and changing as it breaths and moves with gravity. I will do a video and post it on You Tube soon and show some drills and ideas to work with Triangles if you would like.

    Kosho

    Another question:

    In the universe of Kosho Shorei Ryu, everyone does octagon work, and they do it early, is that correct?

    Reason I am asking is it seems there are alot of people that teach something with Kosho in the name, Kosho Kempo, Kosho Kempo Jiu Jitsu, whatever. Is what unites them, more or less, what Juchnik calls "the octagon work"? Just trying to get a handle on this.
