The replacement Kenpo techniques that I have injected into the Nidan requirements are both dynamic and interesting to learn. They are used as replacements for the classical techniques that have shoulder rolls in them. Students that have shoulder and back problems will not benefit from rolling on a hard wood floor that I have in my studio.  Grand Master Mark Tracy has his own replacement techniques and I can teach those to my students also.

The remaining 15 techniques in the classical Tracy Nidan belt requirement chart   are taught..   So the student has to learn 30 Self Defense Techniques. Nothing is watered down.  

* denotes these techniques are actually taught in the lower belts in group class.
