I really like that one it has lots of great kicks :btg: at least how I learned it!
Did you find it difficult to go from Tracy's to EPAK? Were there many differences in how the techniques were taught or in the material itself? Basically, are the same techniques taught in both systems?

I know many will not like to heatr this, but here goes. I did the Tracy system for several years, earning my Third. A few years ago I had a split with my instructor. As I began to really research the system, I found a lot of holes in the information. Things I was really looking for. Then I met the Golden One here on MT and for every question he answered, I came up with three more. Some of the techniques are very similiar but what I found to be the main difference is simply this. EPAK techniques run the gamut from simple to sophisticated while the Tracy system went from simple to complicated. Since making the transition, I have found my basics to be stronger, my techniques to be more fluid and dynamic, my overall understanding of American Kenpo increases exponentially every month. From my experience, while the Tracy system is good and fun, it lacks the depth of EPAK.

No problem Rob, as I stated earlier that someone in the chinese section posted it quite a while back I just bookmarked it for future reference. It has quite a few good things on it.

I did a seminar with Al Tracy and I found it very informative and he knows a lot of history about Kenpo.

Wow! Funny to see this thread is still active. My post,waaaayyyy back, about 3 or 4 pages, was the one that, apparently, ticked off Ted Sumner and, perhaps some others (according to my abrupt and rather one-sided conversaton with Al), and got me booted from the Wonderful World of Tracy.

Neat stuff! :partyon:
