Kenpo techniques have always been animal based, at least the original Parker/Tracy techs.

Hehhe. That's just silly, why not fight like humans?

Because "Human Style" doesn't strike fear in the heart of your enemies.

Do they ever pick cute animals? I wonder if there is a kitten style, or puppy style out there. Is there a Gecko style?

I wouldn't say I stumbled. That's how I felt, but the tape showed otherwise. The main point of my post how your own perceptions aren't always objective or accurate. Besides, I'd rather think I suck and be good, than think I'm awesome and be terrible.
I don't mind telling people I don't think that highly of our testing criteria, or our training methods for that matter. I go there for the instruction and the material, plain and simple. I workout at home and get my more practical application stuff out of class.
Black belt testing used to be pretty good. The self-defense portion was semi-spontaneous where you would be told the general type of attack like "punch" or "kick", and it was up to the attacker to decide which one and you to decide whatever you wanted to do with it. After some people got hurt, it was changed so we just reguritate our prearranged attack and defense combinations. I had a big problem with that because I felt the test became more about memorization than if you learned what the curriculm was supposed to teach. But itw hard to argue when a female black belt just got her back fucked up so bad she had to quit. And I like I said, we're a McDojo. Nobody's there to become UFC Champ.
The current format is really more of a test of physical fitness and memorization, than figting skill. You have to know all the material, and be in good enough shape to do it all without much of a break. That's about it. We'll probably spar during the pretest, but it's hard to say because the format seems to change every time.
