If you think you have a new appreciation of AKK now, I hope you get the chance to learn a few of the SD techniques someday. As Matt said, don't get too attached to using them specifically as they're taught for the specific attack, but some of the ones that can easily be reduced to "flash" are some of the best action-reaction chains you could learn. The type of technique I speak of are the ones with definite AKK names, such as Five Swords, Thundering Hammers, or Backbreaker.

I have just currently started training in akk and the reason i picked the art was the current school im training at is the best from what i can see and hear from others high in the martial arts in this area... I can see how people can get caught up the tech. and not the principle i think my school does a great deal on doing spontanious things the help prevent that but anyways i was going to say that if u have questions on american kenpo u could go to kenponet.com the people that are on the forum there are i guess big names in kenpo if that means anything

Glad you got to finally see it, Kin. It's a monster, isn't it?

After learning Long 5 and most of Long 6, I said the hell with it. Those friggin' kata were killing me! JKD, here I come!

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Maybe I'm doing the smart thing by switching out now, since I've only got to Short Three. I do want to go to a tradition karate if I can, but a TJMA would also be good.

I have a typed up version of Long Form #4, but no video. As for why there are no videos out there...I belive it is because American Kenpo schools are about business rather than sharing knowledge freely. Which I dont have an issue with, since if you're only source of income is teaching, then why give it away??? What I'll do for you all, is I'll video tape myself performing Long Form #4 and post a link to it here.

But give me a few days, I do work full-time.

Kintama,

I too loved Perfect Weapon....as for the kata at the beginning of the movie....it appears to be a few pieces of different kata's. As I was informed, it's not a taught kata...Jeff just made it up for the movie. Besides the shortness of the kata in the movie leads me to believe it's highly unlikely to be any of the long forms.

harlan,

I never said he didnt make it look good. That movie is the reason I wanted to train in Kenpo. He made it look awesome.
