In a "real world" situation, the Kenpo practitioner isn't expected to complete a whole specific technique. One never knows exactly how an opponent may react to any block, check or strike. For any given technique one can apply the equation formula to fit the reactions of their opponent, or perhaps the practitioner has a comfort level with certain movement and prefers to use the basics with which they are the most capable.
Some people believe that the techniques are the heart of kenpo. They are. Unfortunatly, too many people lose sight of why. Always remember, the techniques are vehicles for learning the principles of kenpo. That is their lesson.
