I've only watched Kempo online & it just looks like a flurry of fast (circular?) Movements which seems overly artistic .
Like striking out in a flurry hopefully hitting something. I think Ed Parker definitely Was an interesting man but I'm more interested in direct, clean technique with no fancy BS.
It may well be that my Analysis is way off ...
It's just if I want to smash a guy in the face I don't need all the hand waving or face pulling
