Kenpo Kate Long Two Form - Some variations

We are learning a new kata, Long Two.  After many years, Long Two  is now back in the curriculum. Below is  Long Two as performed by Mr. Mike Galindo at the NTC of Lavallees Karate School in Ft Lauderdale.

(performed informally by an instructor, Mr. Galindo)

I was poking around on Youtube looking at the variations of different Kenpo Long Two Forms.  Our school's version is the simplest and least ornate. I think it's really interesting to see the differences.
