The Elbow and Kenpo Joe

I stumbled upon this video of Kenpo Joe who demonstrates a few elbow sets from a few flavors of Kenpo and Kempo. See it here on YouTube.

What’s nice about these mini-sets is they focus on the most devastating weapon in our arsenal, the elbow. It is versatile and is great at close and really close range. My favorite part of Joe’s articles and videos is how he compares and contrasts the flavors of Kenpo. He doesn’t do it to discredit them, rather he does it to explore and understand. In my opinion, that’s the attitude you need in martial arts training.

That’s all for today.
