You posted, “But the fact is "The Board" has close ties to the Seattle folks right?”
Actually, I was under the impression that there had been a split…
You also posted, “I mean they are promoting all the same thing, right? They come from the same place?”
Again, that is yet another point of contention. The board has not seen fit to show anyone exactly what they do. Even among those like myself, there is a lot of diversity. The art of Moh is continuously developing.
You posted, “I do have issues with outrageous claims of false lineage.”
So do I.
You posted, “Especially when you or your ilk claim what you do is similar to American Kenpo.”
I have never made that claim. In fact, I explored that idea on the Moh forum.
There is some testimonial evidence to suggest that members of Moh and members of American Kenpo know each other and trained with each other (including Margitte, Olaf, Ed Senior and you).
Olaf has even made the claim that he (Olaf) was promoted by GMEP. Other than that, Moh Kempo and American Kenpo would appear to be two different martial arts.
You posted, “You don't know anything about or had a lesson in anything else, so you just know what you've been TOLD. You don't know from EXPERIENCE.”
Actually, I do. While I have spent the majority of my training in Moh, I have explored other martial arts and I have trained other martial artists (no Moh Kempo stylists).
As was said to me long ago, so I pass onto you ‘Jeff’; your posts read as so bitter!
