Do you know your Kenpo lineage?

  1. Yes, I can trace my training lineage back to the founder.

  2. Well, I am vaguely aware about some of the people who taught my instructor(s).

  3. No, but I would like to know.

  4. Who cares? I am only interested in my training under my current instructor(s).

    Your right Iron working is awesome but the watch maker only extends the Only the minmum amount of energy required to subdue the opponent(and keeps on ticking), and the phillosopher chooses his battles wisely. There is a lot to be said for the yin side of the art.

    You can stick to making your watches, pounding on metal, and philosophical nuggets of joy... Sometimes you just gotta kick the YANG out of someone. :rolleyes:

    My first, the one, and my only,

    Master Larry Tatum.

    As they say in my favorite television show, "In the end...there can be only one" and I've found mine.

    The best, 'hey what's this place' "mistake" I've ever made.

    Thank you for all you've brought to me and to my family, sir,

    Angela

    I guess Chapel isn't the only one in the home. You'd better watch out... I hear he's checkin' out your nurse. If I were you I'd brush up on my cane techniques and whip his butt... According to him the nurses there are awesome to behold! (Who said being old was a bad thing, eh?)

    I"m not too sure on all the way back but I do know that our style orignated from Ed Parker. HOwever the man who teaches teh modernised form of Kenpo is called Larry Tatum who is alive and in America SOMEWHERE!!! (I believe Pasadona???) We're trying to get Larry over to NZ but it costs big $$$. It would be interesting to see his mentality behind our Style and where it has come from to be what it is today.

    How funny! He is in Pasadena, correct. You will be interested to know that there are a few Tatum loyals on this site defending to the end (so to speak). Just look at some of the avatars... and bio's. I am not one, but there are many.

    Hello gents, been a while. Hopefully I will be able to post more frequently.

    As far as my lineage; when I started 8 years ago my first instructor was Mr. Jim Mitchell, I have had many of Mr. Mitchells BB's teach me from the same school I first started in, currently I am being taught by Mr. Sturgess.

    My instructor is Bob Leonard, who is a 9th black under GM Al Tracy. Bob started with the Tracys at their first school in Northern California in the 60's, went to Viet Nam as an Army Ranger, then came back to be one of their instructors. He makes the journey worthwhile for many of us!123
