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).

    You mean "Walter Godin" bro. Also, the lineage says that Victor Gascon trained under John Leoning also.

    That truly is a great lineage. Some of the very best. For those that do not know Kraiguar Smith is one of the finest fighters from So. Ca. He put it on the line for many years and has beaten the best. Thanks for posting Kraiguar.
    Respectfully,

    Kraiguar, I'm envious :) :) How long were you able to study with Dr. Chapel? That must have been fascinating.

    Thank you for the kind words, Bob. It has been truly an honor for me to have been a part of such a magical time with you and so many others. I will treasure those moments especially Mr. Parker's Open Tournaments we had lots of fun creating. Peace and Blessings.

    Doc is truly like a big brother to me and many others. I have known him for four decades now and in those early days we were all so very hungry for knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Doc gave us so much that it has helped develop some of us to better human beings as well.
    Mr. Parker told me that he considered Doc Chapel to be a genius and that there were things that he did for him that no one else could.
    We have all received keys to certain doors, we just need to find the right door and go in. God willing.
    If you are empty and need something truly special that came straight from the source which has evolved tremendously, call the Doctor.
    Peace and Blessings.

    You know you didn't have to mention the "four decades" part. Now I really feel old. :)

    Peace.

    Because you knew GM Kraiguar when he was in diapers, right? That's my story and I'm sticking with it ;)

    Fortunately, my Kempo "lineage" is short. My teacher and instructor is Master Bill Chun Jr. Master Chun was taught by both his father, Grandmaster William Q.C. Chun Sr., and by Professor William K.S. Chow.

    I didn't count the first forty years of off and on training. I call them my "Pre - K" years.

    I kinda got off easy there, although I'd like to learn more about the tree in general.
