    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    All I'm going to say is Clyde attended the Vegas Mega a few years ago and was by all reports:

    1) A Machine
    2) Quite capable of kicking at least 95% of the asses on this board. He as "teh real" Kenpo.

    He isn't going balls to the wall in this video so I'm finding the criticism rather amusing. Feel free to post your vids and we'll compare. =)

    Clyde your side stance has always annoyed me and it never seems to be exploited by your sparring partners. Is it because of the skill difference or because Ken/mpo doesn't train to exploit that particualr weakness?

    I'm going to rot in Hell for saying this. Clyde I know you're holding back-- rediculously so by appearances, but when I watch you all that comes to mind is Steven Seagal. Don't be Steven Seagal. Otherwise nifty vid, but what's with the guy in the white gi?

    Clyde ,

    That was so funny ... thank you . Expect to be even more hated by your "peers" .

    You really remind me of another Kempo fellow I knew long ago , Shihan Stover a Shaolin Kempo Karate guy ... who strangely enough ... loved to throw hands and encouraged cross-training and hard contact .

    :ingun: lol

    Are kempo students taught to throw strikes when they're not in range to land them?

    tae kwon do?

    With all due respect.... Looked like tae kwon do with a couple of takedowns thrown in. The protagonist in the video is no doubt a highly effective technician when competing within his circle of fellow kempoist's and has nice kicking form despite his sideways stance but it is still just more "american style karate" stuff. They stand sideways because of the complete lack of hand striking(besides for backfist) and also to facilitate firing kicks with the front leg easily while keeping the head away. Again, they are good at what they do and I don't doubt that the main dude in the video is probably pretty tough and able to handle himself. However I have to agree that a kickboxer/thai boxer/mma striker would have his way with most of them. Nice video.

    I thought it was pretty good. Side ways stances bother me, but I saw some good striking with both the hands and feet. Props for having the balls to submit a video like this to the wolves. Great takedowns as well.
