    From Miriam Webster online:
    Main Entry: pro·gen·i·tor
    Pronunciation: prO-'je-n&-t&r, pr&-
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French progeniteur, from Latin progenitor, from progignere to beget, from pro- forth + gignere to beget -- more at KIN
    1 a : an ancestor in the direct line : FOREFATHER b : a biologically ancestral form
    2 : PRECURSOR, ORIGINATOR <progenitors of socialist ideas -- Times Literary Supplement>

    And
    Main Entry: pre·cur·sor
    Pronunciation: pri-'k&r-s&r, 'prE-"
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English precursoure, from Latin praecursor, from praecurrere to run before, from prae- pre- + currere to run -- more at CURRENT
    1 a : one that precedes and indicates the approach of another b : PREDECESSOR

    And
    Main Entry: fore·fa·ther
    Pronunciation: -"fä-&r, -"f[a']-
    Function: noun
    1 : ANCESTOR 1a
    2 : a person of an earlier period and common heritage

    I conclude that Chow is Parker's Progenitor, Predecessor and Precursor.
    Furthermore...if Parker is the "Father" of American Kenpo, then Chow is the "Forefather" which clearly puts him in the lineage of EPAK.

    Then clearly, by this logic, Benjamin Franklin gets credit for the light bulb and the telephone. Sounds patently absurd, doesn't it? Chow is in the history of Ed Parker's American Kenpo, not the lineage. Ed Parker founded they system, not Chow. That's why it's not called Chow's American Kenpo.

    All of this stirred up from a troll who doesn't study any kind of kenpo, and who bounces (or gets bounced) from forum to forum getting his "attention" fix. Stop answering and maybe he'll go away.
