    Nothing wrong with that. Guys like thrifty and low-maintenance girls ;)
    And I've never seen this when I trained in Kempo though.

    I used to believe that you could spear hand through someone's body to impale him. Yup. Straight through the chest.

    Hellsing style?

    I wonder if that rebounding thing is a bastardization/misinterpretation of FMA tapi-tapi, cos some styles do tap themselves on the hip and shoulder with the non-weapon hand when doing solo practice.

    I briefly believed in chi, and the no-hands throw.

    I think it's probably just the different "set-up" in that position. Cause I do know a similar technique, but it stops before you touch yourself (meaning that you recock your arms in varying positions).

    For instance, a little (though somewhat unrealistic) Kempo combination I learned and modified (because there were too many Shuto chops):

    Southpaw stance. Mirror for orthodox.
    Right driving backfist to the head.
    Left driving Shuto to the neck while the right hand chambers at the chest.
    Right back knuckle (horizontal fist with fingers facing up. Like a baby uppercut) as your left hand rechambers to the right side of your face, palm down.
    Left Shuto snapping forward into the neck as your right hand move up to your temple with your elbow flared out.
    Keeping your left hand near your chin to guard, Right Hammerfist to the temple.
    Follow through and drop your weight to throw a snapping Right reverse Hammer to the groin as your left hand chambers to your chest.
    Left straight to the Solar while your right fist is pulled back to a low guard.
    Right back knuckle.
    Finish with a side thrust kick.

    Pretty interesting and fun idea, though I can't imagine how you'd use it in an actual match.

    Heh, I just remembered, since I was thin, and therefore, in "better shape," than a fat guy, I assumed could easily defeat any oval person. By "thin," I mean 5'9" 125lbs.

    I believed that big muscles make your punches slower.

    That's a possibility I hadn't considered before.

    Never saw any of them use it in sparring though - it only shows up when they're doing those 20 hits in 2 seconds flurries, 'cuz it makes it flashier.

    It just occurred to me last night watching the video Katje and Fake linked, since it comes from "Arnis.org" and iirc Ke?po does have some FMA influence.

    It's basically slapping yourself repeatedly in the torso to enhance the speed of your punches. Yeah, it's about as dumb as it sounds......

    This principle has to work with kicking as well. So the proper way to throw a front/push kick it to knee yourself in the face first, and use the rebounded energy to demolish your opponent.
