    Seems like such a simple question, no?

    The answer is no...and yes. No he doesn't teach Kara-Ho, you want GM Kuoha for that. No he doesn't teach Goshinjitsu Chinese Kempo as Master Bill Chun, Jr. does (quite well). However, he, like almost everybody teaching kempo out of Hawaii, owes a debt to Professor Chow. What Professor Kimo teaches is his interpretation of what he learned from a variety of sources. He wasn't a direct student of Chow, but references some techniques of Professor Chow, to provide historical context, but what he teaches is his own. You will see common elements of movement shared by Hawaiian kempo styles, but with a 'twist' that is sometimes literal.

    Stop by one of the dates if you can. It's much easier to see than to explain. Essentially, he just teaches good kempo.

    Matt

I will be going to his seminars from monday to Wednesday. Just wish i could make it to Atlantic City like some of you other guys to see all the other seminars
    In Peace,

    I believe his most direct teachings come from Walter Godin as well as the Emperado brothers. Jesse or Matt, please fell free to correct me if I am wrong.

    Mike,
    That is great news...

    Jesse,
    Glad you will be there on Monday evening. I'll send you communication via email.

    Walter Godin and his chief instructor, Martin Buell, and a few others.
    Neither of the "Emperado Brothers" were his teachers. Joe Emperado died in 1958, and Sijo Emperado did not meet Kimo until the Gathering of Eagles in 1999.

    He probably has some very interesting stories about the brothers. Walter Godin was very close to Joe Emperado, and was good friends with Sijo until his (Godin's) passing.

    The seminar was a blast!!:ultracool

    This was my first time meeting Prof. Kimo, and I was really looking forward to it. He was a very humble man. Came around and introduced himself to everyone.

    We began with various techniques off of punches and some grabs. Prof. was always walking around, making sure that we fully understood how to apply the technique and to answer any questions we had. I had the chance to be an uke for him while he demo'd some techniques. It was certainly an eye opening experience!

    At the end of the seminar, we all sat down and had a Q&A session. It was nice to hear about his background and more about his art.

    I also had the chance to meet and workout with Mr. Todd Guay and Mr. Jesse Dwire. It was nice to finally put a face with the name! Both were very friendly and a pleasure to work with.

    After the seminar, Todd, Jesse, Prof. Kimo, his wife and myself went out to dinner. More good times and conversation followed!

    Thanks Todd for putting together a fantastic seminar. It was great meeting everyone and I look forward to working out again in the future!:ultracool
