Hello taichi.

I trained in American kenpo for about 15 years.

Unfortunately, there are no secrets regarding speed training....or any other training for that matter!

Practice, practice, practice.

There are some esoteric training elements of American kenpo that are practiced to help speed training. (elastic recoil, rebounding, etc.)

There are others (contouring, obscure zones, etc.), that are not directly related to speed, but rather to give the appearance of more speed.

None of these will help you without simple, regular practice. Try simply working striking combinations on the heavy bag. Maintain good form, and increase your speed when you are ready.

Hope this helps.

he is pretty much right.But on exercise that we love to hate is called(in our dojo)numarical punching or the wing chung chain punching drill.start in your ready stance and simply shuffle forward and throw a vertical fist(if you do not throw your fists like this,just do it!).Then shuffle forward again but this time throw two strikes,and so on up to 10 or 15.Man i should patent this stuff!!!!

Hi! Matt ! Thanks you for the helps, I really appreciated. The reason I ask is because I been training for 17 years and just about this and just want to know what it was all about.

So do you train in Ed Parker Kenpo? if so? how often do you guys have advancement test ? how many Kata and combination do you guys have ? hope you don't mind I was just curious?

thanks you

have a Happy New Years

Taichi -

Yes, I did train Ed Parker's American kenpo. I actually train in Jeet Kune Do now, having stopped kenpo training in 1999 or so.

Most of the kenpo schools I trained in allowed the students to test when they felt ready, or upon instructor recommendation.

Kenpo has basically 2 forms per belt to learn up to black belt. Approx. 17-18 forms.

Combinations? If you mean self defense techniques, there are about 250 total, counting "base" moves and "extensions" of the base moves. Each school is a little different.

Hope this helps.

Re: Kempo speed training.

Yes, combinations against the bag are useful.

Yes, linear drills are good too.

But get yourself a wooden man and practise on it all the time.

With all due respect, I don't believe everyone has the money/space for a wooden man, or the connections required to find one.

Myself, for example.

I was actually curious about this as well, being in the Tracey system of Kenpo-Karate. I know there's no "quick way to learn", and that practice is the key, but I was hoping there would be a useful training method that didn't require equipment I don't have (nor have access to).

What I'm looking for is drills like Gojuwarrior gave (thanks, by the way!), but unfortunately I don't know the kenpo translation for a goju-ryu "verticle punch". I can see this being practiced with a backfist, though, in which case it would be quite useful to me. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

Anyone else have similar equipment-less training drills?

I know how you feel Raven! I too don't have the money to buy a wooden man or space for it, unless you have a big house. I mean heard about this speed striking and was skeptical you know? because from experience of 17 training in Kempo karate? All I know is there is no short cut in martial arts. You want to good practice the form or technique correctly, want to get better practice. Practice and practice.

The reason I ask is to find if it actually exist.

thanks you for everyone information
