Long Form 3
In the American Kenpo Karate system, Long Form 3 is considered an advanced form. In some Kenpo schools is found in the green belt, in others could be found in blue belt rank. Here the techniques are run on left and right sides. There are also some additional techniques called isolations.
One of the most common mistakes in Kenpo Karate forms are bad stances or defending against giant imaginary opponents, no real speed on the techniques, moments when the speed is decreased, no sense of direction. It is recommended to practice each self-defense found in this form before putting the form together, the student needs to know all the self-defense techniques so he will know what he is doing.
