    I was recently corrected by Mike Richardson that Mr. Dimmick still lives on the Oregon Coast and will remain there. Don't think he has a school, though.

    Hi Folks!
    Let's see what I can do to help you...
    Joe Dimmick, Founder of Sampai kenpo, is the owner of "Dimmick's Doubles" which has a website on the net. Mr . Dimmick was known for his resemblence to Clint Eastwood and he has a stable of celebrity inpersonators.

    Ed Booze is a high ranking Black Belt in the IKCA and was featured in the Black Belt video magazine and I believe the freestyle sparring tape for the IKCA.

    I hope that i was of some service,
    KENPOJOE

    Hello there,

    Just thought you might want to read a bit of corrected information regarding my dad, Joe Dimmick.

    My dad is still in Oregon and absolutely loves it. He still owns his Doubles company as well. He is not in poor health, nor is he due to pass on prior to giving any seminars. I'm not quite sure how the rumors all began, but I must say my husband and I got quite a laugh with this information. I don't mean this in a harsh way, we just find it humorous how information passes on. Therefore, thought I'd post some accurate information for those interested in what he's really up to.

    As for his wife and in-laws saying it's the devils work so he caved??? Hmmmm. For those of you that actually know my dad, "CAVE" really isn't in his vocabulary. First of all, my mother is a black belt herself, so I'm not thinking she thought it was the devil's work? My grandparents (his in-laws) have been dead for over a decade, and they NEVER thought it was the devil's work....hmmm. He and my mom did divorce a few years back and he is remarried, but again....they don't think it's the devil's work either. Therefore, no "caving" as you put it.

    As for my babysitter...."L.C.". As I, like you said about my father, am getting up in years, I have no recolection of a babysitter with those initials. We did have a nanny for several years, but those were not her initials. However, if you'd like to give me the full name, I might be of some assistance.

    Sorry if this takes the excitement out of your post, but I had to correct some very inaccurate information.

    Best,
    RS

    LOL - Me too! Please let me dish up my own rather large serving of humble pie...yummy!

    Hello, 2girlsmommie. All of the info I received and errantly passed on was from Michael Richardson who was a student of Steven Freers and then Michael Persons (who, he tells me, is moving to the eastern part of the states...lol - is that even true???). I assumed he might have an inkling what he was talking about, but clearly I was misinformed. Perhaps he was as well.

    I apologize, first of all, for passing along information I assumed was correct as though it were - not acceptable. Secondly, please know I meant no disrespect at all towards your father or you or your family - I really liked Sam Pai when I was learning it - still do - and truly meant no harm. I am also very glad his is enjoying Oregon and is in good health

    And for everyone else, I certainly should have prefaced the information I passed on as coming from another source and I don't mean any disrespect toward him, toward Mr. Dimmick or his family or anyone else I may have mentioned.

    2girlsmommie, if it is all right, I will send you a private message regarding the identity of my college friend who claimed to studying under Mr. Dimmick and to babysitting you or your sister.

    Thanks for the edification - I do appreciate it.

    Hwarang.

    No worries shesulsa - no harm, no foul. Just wanted to clear things up a bit. Spoke with my father today and he had been made aware of your post sometime back, and had also addressed it in another fashion.

    Best wishes to you all,

    RS

    Hi, Have there been any updates on GM Fred Brewster? Has anyone had any contact with him or knows anyone who has had recent contact with him?

    No idea who any of these people are, but I’ve got to say...

    Ed Booze has one of the best names I’ve ever heard.

    He’s right up there with Carlos Boozer. Respect to Boozer, even though I utterly hate Duke. I was so hoping the Knicks would draft him just so I could get a Knicks jersey with Boozer written on the back, but it never came to fruition.

    This thread is 15 years old - it's usually best to start a new thread, rather than resurrecting one that's been dormant that long.

    And, welcome to Martial Talk!
