  2. I have read all five books more than a year ago.

  3. I have read some of the books, but not all of them.

  4. I have never read any of them.

    Your correct you can get all the books currently but #3 is out of stock currently at all the suppliers. Standing by with the credit card when they do.

    I also just bought 2 sets of the entire series at a Martial Arts Store (Lang Son) in Dallas. They had almost all of Mr. Parker's published books.

    You'll find the Infinite Insights Series for anywhere from $ 14.95 to $19.95 and some at $24.95 - The Encyclopedia is going for around $26.95 to $35.95 at most of the sources I have seen. If not let us know what and how much others are charging for them. I would stay away from E-Bay unless you are desperate.

    Well I must have a different source my wholesale supplier sells them to me for $19.95 and being a reseller myself I would have to make the price somewhere in the area of $29.95 Retail at the lower end of retail mark-up jist to cover S/H and Taxes lol.

    Hi Mark,

    That is interesting your site SFCSTC shows the Infinite Insight books priced at $19.95.

    Did you ever receive the Money Order I sent you? I have not received the books yet.

    Regards, Gary

    However
    It is an interesting thought, maybe they found a lower priced reseller??

    I am just beginning my study of American Kenpo, so I would love to read and study everything that I can get my hands on. Where would I get a hold of these and other works by Ed Parker?

    Thanks,

    Gabe

    I got all five for X-mas this last year and have read them all. I'm not sure I will read them all every year but there is some good information in all volumes. I found mine at AWMA.

    Hi Simon,

    Well that is good news for you. I ordered a few through Amazon.com, I have always had good luck with them. Should have done that in the first place.

    Hi Mark,

    I notice you have a new web site and done some major remodeling...
    That back ground is familiar, wasn't that something Bob Hubbard did for America???

    Did he do your new website??? Since our fall out with the books, I have been watching your post's...

    I believe the staff ought to check you out, your stories are not quite the same over the past several months.

    Now you don't even post your address. You are involved in terrorist defense and do your lessons by distance learning???

    I am contacting you this way since you won't answer my e-mail, shoot me a line will you?

    Maybe you can clear up a few things, I have had a few discussions about your posts with others and they feel the same way I am inclined...

    Regards, Gary

    Now, maybe it's just me. But each time I read one of your psots, I just keep thinking you're getting wierder and wierder, and are unable to take a clue. If you keep calling someone, and they don't take your calls, at what point would you actually start to gather that they might not wish to dialogue with you? If you ask the ladies what the difference is between an ex-boyfriend and a stalker is, you'll get a lot of input about the ability to grab a clue, and take the hint when "no" is the only answer you recieve.

    Stalking someone publicly, instead of privately, is still representative of the same clueless pathology. I've noted several threads where people have stopped replying to your prompts, you attempt to goad them to respond, and still they do not. I'm thinking there must be some truth to you being and old boxer, cuz the argument for degredation of gray matter is certainly evident in your actions.
