Well, now that I made some blood boil and got your attention, let me explain what I really meant. :supcool: Lots of you have heard this so I apologize in advance. Ive bounced around schools too much during my short time in MA. However, it wasnt all just because I cant stay still: 6 months MMA out of a garage. I'd have stayed forever but he moved away. 6 months Hapkido. I suspected a McDojo from the gate. (not the style, the school) I went anyways due to the location, schedule, etc. Finally I just couldnt take the wussie training and left. 3 months Kenpo. I liked the training intensity. I like the insturctors. I HATED forms. No matter what, even if I became the Kenpo die hard tomorrow, I don't think I will EVER beleive in them. Perhaps Im wrong though. 14 months combination of Muay Thai, JKD, and FMA. I like everything about it except for the fact that it takes two and a half years to spar. Ive been off for the last 8 months for an injury and will be able to start training again in 2 - 3 weeks. Im dying to spar. I did somewhat of sparring at my first school but not really unscripted, real sparring. Ive got some threads regarding this matter in the General section. Anyways, something Im trying to do right now besides spar is move out of So. Cal. That being the case, if it were to happen I would need to start over yet again. This is getting old. I want to get on with my funky **** and stick to a style. Kenpo is all over the country from what I can tell. I don't think I could live near any big city (which is a requiremnet with what I do for a living) and not find a Kenpo school. Its no secret Im not a huge Kenpo fan based on what I would admit to be my VERY LIMITED experience. I HATE forms. I also really enjoy and beleive in clinch/ takedown type of stuff. Something Ive noticed though is that Kenpo people are typically die hards. Very passionate. And theres lots of them. So I started thinking, maybe theres something too it? Maybe they know/ see something I missed? Entirely possible as forms made me want to kill myself at a very rapid pace. But as mentioned, Im tired of bouncing and want to stick to a style for a while. So Ive got some specific questions about Kenpo. I hope nobody minds. 1. Does Kenpo address defending against someone trying to tackle you? Seemed to me it was purely against punches/ kicks. 2. Does Kenpo address the clinch? 3. Does Kenpo address weapons? 4. Has anyone been like me and thought forms were a total joke, but then later realized they're value and now totally beleive in them? What changed your mind? 5. This one has probably been around so I apologize. Ive seen Kenpos spar. If you don't really do those big round Karate type of blocks when you spar, why train that way? Again, this post isnt meant to slam your style. Its meant to inform. I stated my feelings in the beginnig because I thought it would be hypocritical of me not too.
