    Pat- excuse me, but Kempo is not Chinese. Did you mean to say it is?

    Balloonknot, it's all semantics. Kenpo, kempo, ch'uan fa, all the same kanji and etymology behind them.

    why is he stopping the ground like that? I wouldn't call that chain punching, it's not continuous.

    you stupid kid that's one of the first things I had to learn in jkd. Stick with washing dishes for your drug money. I know chain punching looks a little weird but is is effective.

    As a matter of fact those are not chain punches as we practice in WT: the main difference is that chain punches are launched while moving forward, and not when you don't (even in demonstrations). The footwork is different, with 100% weight on rear leg and forward step to put weight of the body in motion behind the punches.

    A "golden" WT principle is no chain punches from "still" position, but chain punch while moving forward, then when it's no more possible to advance for any reason switch to elbow, knees, chokes , clinch etc.

    WT punch is extremely powerful ONLY if you manage to throw it while moving forward, thus putting you weight behind it: an option is to forward press the adversary even with little motion forward, but then you need different foot work than that showed in the clip.

    BTW I am not bashing the guy, I am just highlighting differences with what I practice.

    I'm kinda spoiled when it comes to seeing some Chain Punches, or something similar to it, but that guy isn't bad. I can count how many he throws so he's not as fast as I've seen it done. I wish the peps I trained with would go ahead and get the seminar pics online, there's a huge guy there, all muscle, who had his arm go limp after a strike from his teacher like those thrown by that Carruthers dude.
