    fun & intersting

    Dave, A man could learn a lot from the full evaluation of positive posture and stable faudation in the defense of pizza. I'm looking forward to your discourse on this subject. Jeff

    The Myth Of The Techniques

    Your talking about bad Kenpo as seen repeatedly on the internet. Stone statue Kenpo is stupid, but not the Kenpo i was taught. MMA is ring fighting. A lot of very talented hard working folk quite capable of defending themselves. Good Kenpo teaches skills that even aging out of shape people can...

    How high can instructors promote their students?

    True, but then we'd have arguments about whether or not they were using true KFC sporks or some shoddy offshoot. Jeff

    No. I don't always know why and when I think I do I often find that I'm wrong. why is unimportant in martial arts as a practitioner if you don't know how. By the time you know how the Why's usually sort themselves out. and as I said doc is costantly telling people "why." even when they don't...

    I used to ask "why" all the time. but as I've learned more I realize that Doc is correct and the real question is "how?." the one other caveat I would add is before you ask, "how" it is important to make sure that the teachers technique works. You don't want to learn How from someone who is...

    The war on rank

    I'm proud of my Blackbelt because it was given to me by my Instructor Mr. Hatfield and his instructor Mr. Wedlake. They felt I deserved it and I was honored to recieve it and remain honored. beyond that it is just a piece of cloth and certainly ranks are difficult to compare school to school...

    SL4 Seminar

    Essentially we learned how to step back into a neutral bow. then we worked on drag step forward, drag step back, step drag forward, step drag back, step through forward and back and then change direction 90 degree and then the cover step. We also did an intro to the hammering inward block and...

    Drugs may be just as good as surgery for clogged arteries

    Now if and when they can come up with a vascular growth factor that speeds collateral vessels and self bypasses. I'm not against medical treatment, I've cared for quite a few "inoperable people" who we stablized and after several years with modifies risk factors (increase exercise, no tobacco...

    Drugs may be just as good as surgery for clogged arteries

    Possibly but of course insurance tends to pay better for procedures than med. Also many people given the choice of say 5 good years with sudden death and 10 bad years would choose the five good years. it's these differences that make medical choices so hard and so easy to second guess. these...

    Drugs may be just as good as surgery for clogged arteries

    I get paid the same whether they go to angioplasty or not. I've not seen the study yet so I can't directly comment on it but in the newspaper the finding was that at five years survival was the same. In my experience people who get plasty's feel better quickly and many people do not tolerate...

    Out of sheer and utter curiousity

    Mr Parker threw Mr. Tatum out of the IKKA, he (Parker) was a good man with a long memory so I'm not sure he would have fully repaired that rift. Judging from the Kenpo of 1990 he would have had some new proteges and remained close with many of his old proteges. Jeff

    Sorry but the image of McSL4s popping up in shopping malls all over the country has me very amused. TKD studios are probably cringing in fear. :rofl:
