    Re: larry tatum

    well,
    Al Tracy says that Mr Tatum "moves like Ed used to"

    so that counts for something.

    he did the first kenpo video series, so thats something

    No one really has anything bad to say about the guy, and in Kenpo, these days, that REALLY says something

    I'll assume this is not a trolling question and give you my opinion of the man.

    I've met and spoken with Larry many times. The man is not only very talented but a great human being. Among other things he has spent time with my kids and makes them feel like they are special (which they are of course, lol).

    He's a top notch Martial Artist. I have some of his products. I even have a chi and meditation dvd from his wife Jill. A great couple, I can't say enough good things about them.

    If I were a Kenpo guy Larry Tatum would be my instructor without a doubt.

    I met the man one time at a seminar. Certainly knows his Kenpo. Has spent alot of time, from what I hear, with Mr. Parker. Very down to earth and friendly. If I was in Ca. and was looking for a teacher in the Parker system, he'd certainly be on my list.

    If you havent already, you should check out his site. He has a number or technique clips that he put online. Very informative.

    I met Clyde in SoCal in the early 90's. Great guy, and in the hostile wilderness that is the "Web Site That Shall Not Be Named" where Kenpo is not thought very highly of, he holds his own

    YOU are the real successor of Ed Parker! For that matter so am I, and anyone else who trains and develops their personal kenpo. so if you are looking for the annointed one, or next true king, etc. look no further...

    but if you are interested in instruction, and have the opportunity to learn from Larry Tatum, don't hesitate... you will not be disappointed and your kenpo will never be the same.

    and since Clyde's name seems to always come up, yeah... he is the real deal too.

    Clyde O'Bryant

    he is a 7th under GM Tatum

    he is loud, opinionated, and not above backing it up on the mat.

    all in all, i love the guy

    Mr. Parker had no successor, and if he did, per tradition it would have been his son. Larry Tatum is one of the few original 7th's under Ed Parker and an extremely talented kenpoist.

    Although he has detractors like we all do, he ran the only school that Mr. Parker owned that made a profit before he passed. He also is not credited for producing and promoting some of the best known Kenpo Black Belts around, including people like Jeff Speakman, Dian Tanaka, Barbara Hale, Mohammad Tabatabai, Brian Hawkins, and a plethora of others.

    Although he and Mr. Parker parted company from the IKKA through mutual agreement on less than favorable terms, nevertheless Larry Tatum's talent an accomplishments are significant before and after his tenure with Mr. Parker as an outstanding Kenpoists. There would no reason in my opinion why you shouldn't avail yourself of the opportunity to seek instruction from this man.
