Hey all,

Since I got the digital camera I decided to do some clips of my Ryukyu Kempo training.

It shows some kata, some ground drills, some foot work drills, and a lot of bag work I've been doing for the past year or so.

I'm trying to get some clips of our 2 man drills, light sparring drills and our past Bogu Kumite matches we had in December.

Hope you enjoy and any criticisms definitely appreciated!

My best,

Raul

PS

be advised that the clip is over 7 minutes long and about 60MB. So you might want to give it some time to load.

What is there to criticise?
I think this is one of the most impressive pieces of MA training footage I have ever seen. What did that poor wavemaster ever do to you!?!?

You look comfortable and confident in all ranges, I freakin love your elbow combo drills from the clinch- will be stealing those if you dont mind .

Power, speed, guard, balance. You have it all. Of course, this does mean i have to hate you now

Gavin's footage from his Kenpo based RBSD group 'Combat arena' is also pretty jaw dropping.

Good kenpo seems to be a very dynamic and versatile style, and you demonstrate it brilliantly.

Inspirational stuff for me, much respect

Hi Raul!

Thanks for sharing! Nice stuff - good power on the strikes, and what seems to be a very well-rounded curriculum. Do you always do all your groundwork on the hardwood floor? Ouch!

As far as any feedback goes, when you were doing footwork drills working on lateral movement, there was a distinct telegraph each time just before you moved. You lifted your back knee with a kind of a "hop" just before you pushed off the front foot. I am unfamiliar with the particulars of your style, so I do not know if this serves any particular function, but it seemed like an obvious "tell" that could give an opponent a chance to strike before you actually moved. Once your sparring opponent sees this, I think there would be time to hit you right as you lifted your knee, before you exploded off the line. Something I might try is to push off the line with your front foot without lifting the back knee, just letting your back foot slide across the floor. This would eliminate that split second where you are on one foot and not yet moving, and make your lateral move sneakier. (Then again, if that knee lift has implications in your style, feel free to ignore my feedback - I am, after all, some anonymous internet VTG who may or may not know a darn thing about MA! )

Anyway - great stuff overall! I can't wait to see the bogu matches!

Peace,
Mike

Very nice Raul!

A little hint; when you do the elbows, twist your waist in the same direction as the strike, and at the moment of impact, let it recoil back. Then you'll be in the position to follow with either a shovel hook using your left hand, or another elbow smash. I got this from reading about gladiators that dual wielded daggers with big maces. They would smash you with the mace, and when you instictively blocked, they'd stab you in the ribs with the dagger. Sneaky Romans, I say.

But all in all, you are Awesome! I'd love to study under you if only I was in the states.

That was impressive! Your hand combinations were dead on and you kicks were full of power. I can't wait to see all the sparring and partner drills. Keep up the good work.

Raul, good stuff. First, I love the music, I'm a big Linkin Park fan. Second, I love elbows and you use them very effectively. Third, you've got the skip down for the knees.

On the step over arm bar, the only thing I would suggest, and you probably already know this, try getting your butt closer so you are one with your opponent and his shoulder is up higher, the distance you have between could make the difference between a tap or an escape. When stepping over I almost yank the arm/shoulder up while going back thus ensuring I get my butt in the right position. Again you probably already know this, plus I've worked on hardwood floors and they are much slippier, and I understand it was only training. Other then that impressive by my standards and I would be more then happy to train with yourself.

I also liked the wave master drill where you are laying on the ground using it to kick up and the short get up and roundhouse. We've never tried this but have done so with partners. In your use of the wave master you can put force behind your kicks whereas with partners we can't. I liked this and will bring this up.

Good job and hope to see more of this stuff.

Personally i don't think it was that great, nice to see some traditional MA's doing more rounded work though.

just to make a few points,

1. You look to need more core strength you have trouble getting up after the arm bars hes not gonna give you time to stumble up like that, also add some resistance i thought that guy was a really expensive dummy.

2. plant your lead foot solid when you round house that way you get the full extent of your bodyweight behind the kick instead of jumping off and flicking, same with the floor kicks seems like a major waste of energy.

3. thrust your hip into the knees you get more reach and power, it will help strengthen your core plus get your weight behind it.

I hope being comfortable in all ranges is not getting confused with being oblivious to all ranges, thats a harsh statement but until you see sparring you don't really know

I think if you look at the initial post, you will see that these were qualified as ground mobility drills, not actual rolling practice.

I am all for seeing good stuff performed by those more skilled than I, please feel free to share any footage you have of your training Tom. I have trained a little with some MT guys, and the power generation can be intense- would love to see your application of it.

There really isnt much to critize, great speed and bower, very impressive. I loved your elbow combos, that would knock someone out cold only one thing, when throwing your right hand turn your hips into it instead of jsut using you arm, youll find you have A LOT more power

keep up the good work!
