What exactly was so "nice" about this form?

What I saw was a very unpostured, unbalanced form with a little power.

Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

I guess for them is good form. I checked out their sparring vids and I wasn't impressed. Looked amateuristic at best.

I have to agree with Clyde. I don't know if it's him or the system.

Take it out on the heavy bag,

I don't know this form, so I can't judge it completely, I don't know if there are intentional readjustment steps, or if there are intentional pauses for his "bouncing" in place movements, or what purpose the movements have.

BUT, in Kenpo terms, if this was a Kenpo form,

we would criticize his incorrect posture, what appears to be hesitation and pauses, unnecessary readjustments in foot position and placement (step to the correct position and location, then you don't have to readjust), I have a feeling some of his readjustment maybe from practicing in a smaller space and so his adjustments for limited space have become automatic, his incorrect formation of natural weapons (thumbs sticking out, and fingertips not aligned correctly in spearhands, and the fingers don't appear to have a slight flex, if he makes contact like that he may jam his fingers, incorrect dimensions of his stances (width and depth, sometimes he's too wide (toe heel line) and sometimes too deep in his stance (knee heel line)) and the lack of 3 leg positions in his kicks.

He does demonstrate force in his movements, there are many snapping actions, but some of his thrusting strikes still seem to snap back instead of penetrate and brace.

I like that he is coordinated in moving his hands and feet through most of the form and tends to synchronize his hands with his feet (moving together)
