About this book:
Kenpo Karate 601: Form Six is the last of the high-level empty-hand forms taught in American Kenpo. This book sheds light on the background, principles, and execution of one of the most popular Parker forms.
Lee Wedlake passes on knowledge he gathered about the form from Senior Grandmaster Parker and some of the most senior instructors in the system. This form is the principle of a logical progression of movement principles created by Ed Parker, "The Magician of Motion."
The thesis Form requirement incorporated in certain levels of Kenpo is also covered. Mr. Parker's logic behind the thesis and keys to creating and executing a quality thesis form for basic, intermediate, and advanced levels are included. As a post-graduate student must generate a "Capstone", so does the advanced Kenpo practitioner. If you're not sure why or how, read this book.About The Author:
