Here are some clips from Mr. Palanzo's Kenpo Self Protection course. What do you think the impact of this program will be on American Kenpo?

In July's issue there is an article from Mr. Nackord about powering up your Karate strikes using motion science. Talking about Kenpo's power principles of Torque, Gravitational Marriage, and Back Up Mass. Intresting read. Though, the editors give Joe Lewis credit for Mr. Nackord's martial arts...
Went to class tonight thinking we would be sparring. Kind of thought something was up when myself and another student were working outside with the one of the instructors, on the patio, and the rest of the class was lining up. We went through all of our material and then about an hour later...
Does anyone remember this column that Ed Parker used to write for Blackbelt magazine? Does anyone know where these articles may be found present day, without having to search eBay for hundreds of back issues of Blackbelt?
I came across this at the WKKA site. Apparently it is a course that allows schools that don't teach Kenpo, to learn principles and self defense techniques of AK, and incorporate this information into their respective styles. What does everyone think of this? Good idea or potential for...

I am not talking about an E-zine, but a good old fashioned paper magazine.
More sokes and grandmasters can be found here. Some of these guys may be the real deal, but I would bet that most are not. What do you think?
I wonder where some of these guys come up with this stuff. And we wonder why people think the way they do about martial arts in America...
I recently watched a Kenpo/Jujitsu class the other night at a local community center and found it to be intresting. I studied American Kenpo for a while a few years ago and had a blast with it, but couldn't continue because of problems with the instructor, but that's another story.
