Hi Folks!Yep! I taught a camp in Vegas and half the group were without cups, I was informed when we began to work on a drill. When I asked about how they protect themselves in case of contact, I was told they were, "..not allowed to make contact with each other, only on the bag." All I could think of was how small the island was I must have been living on.
Contact will definitely have a limiting effect on your enrollment, and bottom line.
Thank you,Ron...this was a good one!
At tournaments, I used to have the kid competitors "knock on their cup" to see if "anyone was home" to then hear a symphony of groin cup bongo solos as they realized it made a sound when you hit it!
I was recently teaching a seminar in vegas myself and asked who was not wearing a cup, a couple of hands went up and I jokingly stated "FOOLISH MORTALS! Kenpo is one of the most groin obsessed systems in the world! We find new and interesting ways to hit someone in the crotch everyday!"
