It's more practical instead of locking your knee. Also you can move faster. Ed Parker once said, "if you can improve it, do it!" I have improved it, for me. Each of us is different and Kenpo once black belt is earned, should be tailoyed to fit the person.

I would contend that you are still bowing. rather tha comming to a static bow, your are bowing. If that makes any sense.
