    Thought I'd update this.
    I'm now studying Kara-Ho Kempo as a beginner, and also have been honored to be allowed to join a group of American Kenpo people's workouts as well.

    Absolutely we should be free to spread our knowledge regardless where it's from. can you imagine a college professor trying take a former student to court because he was teaching something he learned in class? i find it extremely arrogant that anyone thinks they own a particular style of combat. maybe we should all start paying royalties to the guy who first threw a punch!
    By the way I study Dragon Kenpo.

    Perfect. Let's all send tribute to Greece! Since Pancrase went from there to India where it became Kalari, and from there to China where it became Shaolin Gung Fu, then from there to Okinawa etc. I say we should all pay tribute to our Greek origins.

    Please make checks payable to "Alexander the Average" who tells me that he is an indirect descendant of "Alexander the Great". The reason that he's only average, is that his only "conquests" were of the women that were nearly passed out from too much Uzo. But he assured me that he would send you rank recognition depending on how much you sent him.

    My primary lineage is Parker Kenpo, however I have learned Chinese Kempo, and a little tiny bit of Tracy's Kenpo, but not much.

    Different methods and branches go by different names: For instance, There are Original Method/Emperado Method/Hard Style/Kenpo Karate method/Old Hard Style etc etc. all used to describe the same basic branch.

    Let me see where I can Begin on the story of Tiger Crane Kenpo Karate. My name is Mike Mounce, Co-founder of this system.
    In the early 70’s Randy Edwardson and Myself trained under Armando Fleming who started TCKK then in the mid 80’s it was turned over to me as Mr. Fleming retired.
    When Randy got out of the service we partnered to open the School. Due to differences of opinion we parted ways and Randy who was married with a daughter moved to Texas and we have not been in contact since. Randy was like a nephew since I have known him since he was in high school. Larry is his little brother. Randy did train with Sol for awhile and what happened to there relationship I am not aware.
    I reopened TCKK in the late 90’s with my wife Linda, my son and daughter Matthew & Louise and Tracy Smith in Long Beach/Signal Hill CA. and closed in 99 due to the same problems most schools were having at that time (low student counts). A few of my instructors ate still teaching and carrying on the tradition of TCKK and I still keep my had in it although being a little hard to do that and raise 5 grandchildren. I was promoted to 7th degree by a consciences of black belts of well known caliper one of which was Mr. Parkers Wife which ment more to me than most things I pride. Randy and I although being out of the Tracy system but were very close to the Parker family and the International Chapionships in Long Beach. So we are still around and hope to bearound for some time.
    I hope this clears up some of the questions on us and our history and reputation which is well respected today. Just ask Frank Treijo or David Motzak or Mohamed Jon Vash.
    Thanks Grandmaster Mike Mounce TCKK

    I will chime in now.

    My first style I trained in after I stopped with my father was Hawaiian Kenpo.

    As of last week I am back to EPAK and loving every minute. It is the piece of the puzzle I have been missing for the last 20+ years.

    Well duh! If only more people would understand that, we wouldn't have to have these threads.
