    Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    I am curious about how many of you pay attention to your Kenpo lineage and whether that knowledge is important to you.

    I can trace my lineage being a second generation BB just fine. However, I more concur with the idea that it is not that important to me. My vision of the art is very much that given to me by my instructor. I got to meet Mr. Parker, attend a few seminars, and even hang out with him and a few others in his living room. It was great meeting the person my instructor talked about non stop, but I was really in no position to be influanced by Mr. Parker one way or the other. Mr. Parker was important to me because he was important to my instructor, and I hope to someday fully appreciate my proximity to Mr. Parker. I do appreciate it more and more as time goes by. In the back of my mind though, I really owe my love of the art to the example set by my instructor, hands down. I hope this post didn't seem in anyway disrespectfull; I was just trying to be realistic.

    All the people that have helped me have been taught by Master Al, and he has taught me, and tested me all the way.

    Currently I am under Mr. Jeff Lujan of the Universal Kenpo Federation headed by Mr. Pick who as many of you know was with Mr. Parker's since the 50s and never left Mr. Parker except to join the Marine Corps for Vietnam and then returned. (wow what a runnon sentence).

    He's in a special catgotry: The Ed Parker American Kenpo liason. Kinda like a diplomat with powers of immunity.

    I can trace my lineage From
    Mr. Dennis Lawson ~ Mr. R.S. Mitchell ~ Mrs. Melody Mitchell
    Mr. Brian Heinz - Mr. Skip Hancock
    Mr. Ed Parker Sr.

    Although I don't belive that the linage has as much to do with the overall knowledge base because you do learn to make the lessons of Kenpo your own, it is fun to see where you come from at times. Just like your own personal family tree.
    With the opportunites I have had to train with many Kenpoists from all over, I can firmly say that I would add each and every one of them into my own personal lineage as they have all had a profound affect on me, and even tho I never personally was able to train with Mr. Parker Sr. his teachings are still today simply a joy to study.
    In no paticular order.

    Mr. Jeff Speakman
    Mr. Ed Parker Jr.
    Mr. John Sepulveda
    Mr. Dennis Conatser
    Mr. Zach Whitson
    Mr. Gill Hibben
    Mr. Richard "Huk" Planas
    Mr. Sean Kelly
    Ms. Jacki McVicar
    Ms. Doreen Cogliandro
    Mr. Benny "The Jet " Urquidez
    Mr. Bob White
    Mr. Steve LaBounty
    Mr. Paul Dye

    To those on this list and those that have yet to become a part of my Kenpo Journey, my deepest thanks and best wishes.

    Yeah, real easy.

    David Hebler
    S.G.M. Parker

    That's the tree version of it. I have also spent a little time with Mr. Hebler as my "helper" in a Seminar I was teaching. Really cool and kinda threw me when he asked, but he wanted to be my assistant for the class... I never really trained with him, don't mis-understand. Just some good conversation.

    Re: Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    I know my lineage now. There were some unclear links until MartialTalk and the KenpoNet helped me to find the people who could fill in the blanks.

    Re: Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

    I'll give credit where it is due. My first instructor was Matt David of unknown lineage, Mr Bleeker claimed him at one point in a conversation I was having. However, My "true" lineage is Skip Hancock and Mr. Parker.

    My Kenpo Lineage began and ended with my Kenpo teacher. Anything beyond that doesn't matter.
