Written Summary:

Mr. Bulot's "Advanced Grafting" tape I found to be every bit as good as his intermediate tape. Once again he takes different Kenpo techniques and shows how a person can combine them and flow from one technique to another. Mr. Bulot recommends that a person practice at least several hundred times, the techniques shown on his previous tape "Intermediate Grafting", before they attempt to use the information on this tape. Here's what I saw him combine on this tape:

1. Broken Ram & Menacing Twirl
2. Evading the Storm & Gift in Return
3. Darting Mace, Bow of Compulsion, Squeezing the Peach
4. Gift of Destiny, B6/Green Belt, Thrust into Darkness (B6 is a freestyle technique)
5. Unfurling Crane, Fatal Deviation, Entwined Maces
6. Cross of Death, Heavenly Ascent, Circling Destruction, Circles of Protection, Broken Gift, Spiraling Twig
7. 9 other unspecified techniques

Bulot's Kenpo is some of the best I've seen. I highly recommend his tapes.
