    You cannot learn body mechanics from a book

    Then, why are all the old Kung Fu Movie stories based on gaining the "book" to learn a style that defeats the bad guy at the end? Maybe, it's for people who are already practitioners and have enough know how from doing that looking and reading can be made to work right. Playing Devil's advocate...

    What is really the difference between TMA and MMA? False Dichotomy...

    MMA= Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Judo/Ju Jutsu, + others Hmmm.... All of those arts seem to have been around for Centuries? Millenia?? Seems MMA is just TMA's mixed. How is it a new art? New methodology of being open and away from "style," oh wait! I could've sworn I heard or read this before...

    So, the real question, from a Kempo/Kenpo view is did these movies provide the technique ideas? A lot is very similar. I know as a youth, what was seen as "cool" by me was tried and incorporated. I'm guessing the same for them, with such limited material. So, in an argument sense, are those...

    Let's start a debate! Disney Movie Songs! The voice of the character singing the song or the artist that re sings it for album sales? Example: Let it Go! from frozen. Idina Menzel or Demi Lovato?

    Debut of "Christian Kempo"

    Not to insult, but to just respect what was created and handed down. Kempo/Kenpo for most is a tool used. As a tool, it only can have an origin, in this case Hawaii. A tool cannot have a religion or theology. Only the practitioner can. All faiths and people can use Kempo/Kenpo equally.

    A thought about philosophy in the martial arts.

    Unfortunately, with the arts, skill only comes with time. There is no speed up process; it all accumulates through time. There are no short cuts. Think of it like this: you take up the arts as a teen. You do thousands of reps through the years, and yeah, know the techniques, forms, etc. Then you...

    A thought about philosophy in the martial arts.

    Zen or Chan was always hand in hand with the arts. Unfortunately, different cultures, eras, and "needs" have changed the philosophy of teaching the arts and what's the primary focus.

    Been Had????

    Growing up in the 70's and 80's, I religiously watched all of the "chop socky" Kung Fu movies and Kurosawa Samurai movies. They provided me with the spark and want to take up the arts. Fast forward to recent times, I look up and still watch the movies at work (thanks youtube). While watching, I...

    Too Intellectual????

    True. Consider all of the founders, they all learned something, then went to the Chinese styles for additions to their liking. (The old Karate masters too)

    Too Intellectual????

    Maybe it's the other way around. The TMA's are too intellectual for today's instant gratifiers.
