    Re: Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    I realized that I haven't posted my lineage here. Like Jack Meower, my instructor, Dan Distelhorst, earned his black belt under Jay T. Will. He originally operated his dojo as a franchise under the Tracy schools, but became independent. Since then, his style has become more influenced by Mr. Parker, as he has attended trainings and seminars with Mr. Parker, Mr. Planas and at least one with Mr. Wedlake, among others that I can't recall.

    Erg! Re: Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    This is a very difficult question to answer. First of all I study & teach Kempo or as I have been told since my first day training in Kempo ... (Shaolin Kempo) I'm not going to say which Kempo group I study under or teach for as that will just open the flood gates to another moronic debate about he said, she said & your this & he's that! Besides in the big picture it doesn't really matter anyways.


    Kempo/Kenpo or whatever's history shoots out into so many different directions it's really hard to say who brought it here & there who started this or that because there are so many groups, schools, teachers, students & strong personalities within the Kempo/Kenpo family & I stay clear of the politics of Kempo/Kenpo or whatever as if I wanted to become involved in politics I would be spending your hard earned tax dollars right now with the rest of the political leaders ...(Crooks!) in Washington DC but! ... Back to Kempo/Kenpo. Students of mine come to me & ask me lots of questions about this group & that group or they have heard this & that & I refuse to talk bad about other Kempo/Kenpo groups because I know many people that are involved with these other groups', teachers' etc ... In the end what's really important is the Kempo. It's a great art & if you train, study or teach Kempo/Kenpo then more power to you!

    Re: Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    I'm fairly sure of my lineage, but it's only of historical use to me. One day it may find context.

    I am thrilled with my current instructor. He's tough as a tree trunk and knows his kenpo. I would be thrilled to earn a black belt with him.

    When I think of lineage I think of an Arabic proverb I see in someone's signature all the time about examining what is spoken, not he who speaks. In martial arts it is the same. Examine the kenpo, not the kenpoist.

    He makes it look so easy. It's hard to understand why I feel like a quibbling mass when his effectiveness is so graceful.

    Gee, can you tell that I like my instructor?

    Re: Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    I practiced many arts before Kenpo, I practiced under Master John La Tourrtte in the early 80s. John practiced under Ed Parker Sr., But John held black belts in several other arts before praticing Kenpo. I do consider Kenpo a turning point in my life though, it's where everything started to really come together. I've practiced a few more arts since Kenpo. Now I just do my own thing I've modifided all my technics from the begining for real fighting and due to my age everything I do is from very painful to leathal. In 36 years martial arts has never let me down, if you give it 100% thats what you get out of it.

    I was a student of Dave Sites who was a student of Jay T Will. Mr. Will started studying with Ed Parker in 1965.
