I am currently a junior (cadet?) black belt training for my 1st Degree Black and I am thinking about doing my thesis/form about the universal pattern and how it is demonstrated through various techniques in the syllabus. I am wondering if this would be an acceptable topic to choose? Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Every basic follows a path or line of action. Methods of Execution (chopping, hooking, whipping, clipping, etc.) require us to modify the path or line, depending on body mechanics. The arc of the path is a shape or curve, and the Universal Pattern is designed to conceptually represent the curves and arcs of paths of action, comprehensively explored within the kenpo system.

Combinations of basics (i.e., techniques, sets, etc.) can be explored in introductory, intermediate and advanced levels of understanding, by studying the Uni Pattern, while leeping in mind the differences between printing, cursive script, and short-hand.

Few actually bother to put any thought into this. Those who do, often find the exercise rewarding and enriching for their kenpo.

Good luck, and don't forget to read up on the uni pattern in the Infinite Insights books!

Find the Vitruvian Man influence in the Universal Pattern.

Make sure that you tie the attacks to the ideals and respect the attackers ability to
mess with your HWDT dimensions when they understand the Uni-Pat.

While examining the pattern and the various lines, circles, half circles etc I noticed what i would best describe as a web surrounding most of the pattern (Picture with outline below). I am unable to tell what motion these are supposed to represent. To make matters more annoying, when examining other patterns on the internet, these lines appear slightly different in some. In some these lines are straight, in others they are bent inwards, some are touching the outermost circle, some are not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On the website below... go to videos and look at pattern 2. One of your mistakes is separation of the 3 dimensional figure, it does not work well if you use THE UNIVERSAL SPHERE in only on one dimension or plane. Place yourself in the middle of the ball then you tell me what you see.

CLICK the link below and follow the aforementioned directions.

Have a nice day

those connecting lines you asked about are within what I see as the two larger circles that can be considered the outer rim and the outer perimeter.

When doing an upward block, you forearm stops between the outer rim and the outer perimeter. Make contact on the vertical line with the hammer fist to the outside (as much as possible) of the attackers arm and drive it upward with the forearm. Your elbow stops at your outer rim, your fist stops at the outer perimeter and your forearm stops between so that the attackers arm deflects away.

Upward block:
a) vertical line of action to the hammer fist that deflects
b) diagonal path of action to increase margin of error

The lines that connect the eight points of the pattern are the link between outer rim and outer perimeter.

Have a great Universal Pattern day.

"Hallo, my name is Inago Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die."

Okay, maybe this will do:

working clockwise from the top with the right arm, upward block, extended outward block, inside downward palm up block, inside downward palm down block, upward outward parry.

Rinse and repeat counter clockwise with the left hand.
