    Kenpo 5.0 Ad

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...arch&plindex=0

    Watcha guys think? I still feel they are just trying to incorporate real training while still retaining their Kenpo curriculum so they don't have to say, "we were wrong" but rather "We are EVOLVING!"

    Still looks like a step in the right direction nonetheless.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I think Speakman means his school offers BJJ and MT classes (by legit instructors I hope) in addition to Kempo. I've always heard Speakman's Kempo training is for real, but his compliant drill promo clips are teh :tongue6:

    Speakman and his org should concentrate in putting more clips like this and less of the compliant kind:

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Well there has already been a thread about this, but what the hell! I like it! if there was a kenpo 5.0 school near by I would train there. But then again, if I still lived in tucson AZ. I would still be training at Veon Mccarroll's kajukenbo school. He was doing the same thing back in 1987.

    Speakman's just updated and added new techniques to his Kenpo curriculum. Still, what are theese compliant drills where 1 person attacks, and the other counters with a 4-6 attack move supposed to teach me? They don't work in a real fight, unless your oponnent is standing there unconscious. What am I supposed to get from theese techniques, they're the core of the EPAK system. I'd like to learn to fight, not preform movie Kung-Fu. Why aren't there many/any Kenpo movie stars, I think the system would work perfect for movies.

    Did you see the clip I posted here? I know what you mean regarding the pre-arranged clips, but I don't think one can dismiss Speakman's kempo system as mere rubish just because of them. This is almost similar to dismissing KK because it still has kata. Again, see the clip.
