Yes! The four ways of fighting is a foundational principle of SKK the same way the AK = speed hands
37. Simultaneously manipulate the adversary's upper and lower body.
This is one of the fundamentals of SKK. Once you recognize this part you begin to see it in most “techniques” and it changes how you view and think about the applications of your forms. This is truly how to “kempo-ize” traditional kata and make our practice exceedingly practical.
Draw in close and use the continuous destructive motion off a powerful yet mobile base with multiple strikes, while simultaneously manipulating the opponents upper, lower body mass and structural integrity until the threat is over.
From the Villari marketing poster:
As a result of Grandmaster Villari's varied wealth of experience and his dedication to seeking the ultimate fighting system, he realized each fighting system offered something both unique and special, and each also had its glaring weaknesses that would make a fighter vulnerable. After studying and mastering many different styles and ways of fighting, Grandmaster Villari realized that there were only four ways of fighting.
1. With your hands (punching, striking -- both open and closed-handed) or use of any part of the arms, elbows, forearms, etc.
2. Kicking (with the foot, knee or leg).
3. Felling -- that is to knock an opponent off his feet by throwing, tripping, pulling, pushing, shoving or scooping him.
4. Grappling -- the secret of grappling is to always have control of your opponent by either wrestling, holding, breaking or locking bones or joints against nerve centers, thereby directing your opponent by delivering excruciating and incapacitating pain.
Grandmaster Villari finally discovered that the ultimate in self defense lay not in one way or style of fighting, but by combining the Four Ways Of Fighting. He then devised and developed ways to integrate these methods of fighting into one, thereby eliminating any and all weaknesses and vulnerabilities. This is the CORE, THEORY, and METHOD behind Villari's devastating and impregnable art of Shaolin Kempo Karate.123
