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).

    Very shortly after starting Kenpo karate I began research into the origins and soon I started recognizing names my instructor had said he studied under; La Bounty and Huk most notably.

    I do/have.

    Of course it's important.

    Pedigree is always important to knowledge gain. In addition however, it is not only your direct lineage that is important but also those that you choose to investigate or search out that have much wisdom "outside" your specific lineage. I always enjoy probing/studying/picking their brain ... with any knowledgeable Kenpoist.

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far away: Ed Parker, Steve Fox, me (with help from temple brothers, life's expriences, and a Shotokan group I snuck off to, to get the crap kicked out of me via sparring, sparring, sparring).

    Hello, Do you know your Kempo lineage? We are a fairly new system and there are documented history of our Professor and his schools and his history of his instrutors as well. Our Professor came from the kajukenpo system before leaving and starting his own, known today as Universal Kempo-Karate Schools Association. All the people testing for their Black belts has to do it in front of the Professor and his chief instrutors, pasting is an Honor. Our first black belt is call "Student black belt" than one year later or more,you can test for the First Degree black belt.

    Hello Mr. Lear. "Philosophical nuggets of Joy"??? What do think we do? run through the fields quoting some dead poet? Naw, we kick the YANG out of 'em too, that's what we do. If you can't put your fist through their tissue, be in theory, in reality, spiritually, if you haven't done that core work on yourself, if you haven't gone to force on force, if you haven't seen their eyes bug out from fear and pain...well you get the idea....not much else will work for you then.
    I perceive you to be one of those 'Iron Worker' students given the men you've trained with, I'm right aren't I???
    Here's hoping you and yours have a wonderful holiday season, and I truly mean that..
