    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Jeff Speakman has da real AK?

    Interesting footage of Jeff Speakman's guys fighting. This is one of the first videos I've seen of any Ke?po guy that wasn't in the ring, but sparring with 4oz fingerless gloves. Not exactly the best stuff, but I'm nowhere near one to talk. Only thing that made me chuckle was the guy trying to do the ol' elbow to the spinety to stop a takedown.

    Since when did American Kempo have ground fighting and takedowns?

    It looked like they must have been controlling their strikes, or else someone would have dropped. But hell, they look rough, and better then most kempo I've seen.

    please tell me you're not saying that for the elbow in the spine thing....

    Where's that tremendous kenpo handspeed we keep hearing about? Shouldn't they have been throwing 17 deadly strikes per second?

    It's great that these guys actually try to put their **** to the test, but it looks like they need to spar way more often. They looked like they were afraid to get hit.

    Not bad. I enjoyed the video.

    Now I'm going to have to watch "Perfect Weapon" again.

    Not bad. Its way better than alot of Kenpo thats been posted.

    And note the elbow to the spine did NOT stop the takedown so that kills that "antigrapplilng" theory.
