    If it looks hostile and sarcastic, then that's your perception of it, not the intent, it's simply the truth, with no sugar coating. Like I said, people love to be lied to, and you obviously have other issues that made you perceive it the way you have. Most schools require a long term...

    You show me exact text where I belittle, demeaned, insulted, or any other negative post to the school or assoc. in this thread. Half truth, it's the whole truth, and I could care less if I alienate the forum populace. I posted in a respectful way, just because YOU don't see it that way...

    You've never met Mr. Parker, and you say you cannot speak for him, so why do you? Change, like a car right? Seems they're bringing back a bit of retro in the Mustang and the Camaro these days, wonder why, cuz they had the right idea then and too much CHANGE didn't sell now. People...

    Kenpo Roots & History Part 2

    Steve LaBounty is known by nearly every Kenpoist around, simply because he's a helluva nice guy and a tough Hombre to boot. I've laid hands on with him, and I can tell you first hand, what he does, works. DarK LorD

    Hmm, on your profile it says you're an American Kenpo BEGINNER, and all the sudden you have the answers to Kenpo I suppose? Buddha Girl asked a question, I responded that we didn't have enough information to ascertain any level of helpfulness. Once the information was received, I then...

    No, the AKKI material IS NOT, I repeat, IS NOT American Kenpo, it's been altered in every way, forms, sets, techs., and for anyone to claim otherwise would be a misnomer. Yes, Mr. Mills did do American Kenpo at one time, he then tailored it to his specs. and began teaching HIS version of it...

    An ORANGOUTANG, is that a new flavor of Tang with the orange out? Peacan= a can of peas? I'm not a sour puss, I answered the questions she asked, truthfully, and non PC, because honesty is not a virtue, it's a curse. I do hope Budha Girl enjoys herself and her training, but at least...

    Sadly, my statements are the truth, but people really don't want to hear the truth do they, they want to be told how nice and pretty things are in their little portion of the universe. DarK LorD

    Kenpo Roots & History Part 2

    Never said Chapel didn't train with Parker, in fact, I've never even insinuated it, and if you think I have, please post a link to where I've said it. I don't know what Chapel is doing these days, but from what I've seen (on video and in person), and from his posts on Parting Wings, ie...

    Well, what you're doing IS NOT American Kenpo, as much as they'd like to tell you it is, which BTW, is why I asked the question to begin with. They are doing Paul Mills' interpretation of what he learned of American Kenpo. The only material available for you is only what the AKKI will/can...

    Kenpo Roots & History Part 2

    The three listed in the article were Larry Tatum, Tom Kelly, and Joe Polanzo, they're still around and actively teaching as far as I know. Ambition to be a protege, does anyone really have that, or just the desire to learn? Your instructor determines if you have the means and ends to be what...

    Kenpo Roots & History Part 2

    You see, this is what I find ironic, you say you were being trained by Ed Parker, in what I'm assuming is special Kenpo, not the normal (commercial) version everybody else got. Why is it then, you weren't included in the list of proteges in the 1979 Black Belt Magazine article? Seems to me...

    Where are you, what style of Kenpo, name of rank of your instructor and their instructor. You've given us a pretty generic setting in which to accurately answer your questions. DarK LorD
