    Art of the Warrior Magazine

    Art of the Warrior, Thank you for your response. I've mailed in a snail-mail subscription to your magazine. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the article on the Tracy Kenpo Hall of Fame, and GOE III! Are the back issues of the magazine, shown on the website, still available?

    Starting (again) in Wun Hop Kuen Do

    I know that Sifu Art has some long-time students who train with him, and I'm sure the same is true for Sifu Fajardo. While I'm still very interested in the Kajukenbo family of arts, I'm very fortunate to have found Mr. Pedersen's school, and to be training there. Tracy's Kenpo (at least as...

    Art of the Warrior Magazine

    Is anyone here subscribing to this magazine, or has anyone seen an issue? I became aware of the magazine through the Tracy's Kenpo website. From it's website, www.artofthewarrior.com it looks like a quality publication.

    Boxing Training Question.

    There usually is no specific footwear required for training in boxing. That would depend on the trainer too, but a pair of the Chuck Taylor Converse facsimilies that are on the market, would serve your purposes well, IMO. You can find boxing shoes easily enough on the Internet, but if you...

    lima lama

    Is anyone currently reading and/or posting at Martialtalk.com currently training in Lima Lama? I've read a couple of articles dealing with it, over the years, and it sounds like an effective self-defense art. I think it's one of the styles that kickboxing legend, Benny Urquidez trained in.

    Starting (again) in Wun Hop Kuen Do

    I'm training in Tracy's Kenpo under a really good instructor named Mr. Mow, at Scott Pedersen's school, www.advantagema.ath.cx/ama/ and have been shown a little more than half of the yellow belt techniques. Luckily my previous training has stayed with me somewhat, in terms of hand techniques...

    Where's Dennis Alexio?

    I was never really an Alexio fan, because of his demeanor, but I still appreciated his ability in the ring. He was a very skilled kickboxer, the Longinidis fight notwithstanding. There is a brief clip of Alexio demolishing Branko Cikatic, another very good fighter, on the Web. A search will...

    Starting (again) in Wun Hop Kuen Do

    Actually Drac, I'm more motivated to learn martial arts at 53, than I was in my 20's. I used to jump into sparring with boxers, and full contact (PKA) fighters, and fared pretty well, for someone with little previous experience. Fought a couple of exhibition bouts that were boxer vs...

    Starting (again) in Wun Hop Kuen Do

    SifuJason, Thanks very much, for your kind offer. I've started training in Tracy's Kenpo, and W. Hock Hochheim's CQC, and have a lot of material to absorb, so I'll probably concentrate on those two systems, for the time being. I'll contact Sifu Art down the road, and see if he's accepting...

    Where's Dennis Alexio?

    I saw Alexio fight Lowell Nash in Denver, in the '80's. Nash dropped Alexio early on, but Alexio came roaring back, to KO Nash in impressive fashion. As LegLockGuy indicated, he mixed his hand and foot techniques well, and had excellent power in both hands, and both feet. He was explosive...

    Characteristics of Tracy's Kenpo

    Ray, Mr. Mow is still teaching at Mr. Pedersen's school. Mr. Mow taught the Kenpo class I attended this morning. He's an excellent teacher, and obviously very proficient in Kenpo. Mr. Pedersen and Mr. Mow both say Hi!

    Characteristics of Tracy's Kenpo

    Ray, Due to an unusual work schedule, I haven't attended any group classes yet, but I will be shortly, and will tell Mr. Pedersen and Mr. Mow, (if he is still there) that you said Hi. Thanks for your feedback, also. Tracy's looks like a fine system to me, and I'm looking forward to digging...

    Characteristics of Tracy's Kenpo

    Thanks very much, KenpoDave. That gives me a pretty good picture of the Tracy's methodology. You have a great website, BTW. I'll be using it as a reference source quite a bit.

    Estacada-Kajukenbo

    Thanks for your informative post, Steve. Estacada-Kajukenbo sounds like another very effective art within the Kajukenbo family. I'll look forward to hearing more about it, and for more information on the forthcoming DVDs you mention on the "Pro Shop" board.

    The Jet's Gym???

    Tong Po, You might be able to get some information from Benny's brother-in-law, William "Blinky" Rodriguez. Blinky is prominent in street-gang intervention in the L.A. area, and a web search should provide you with some contact information for him.

    Characteristics of Tracy's Kenpo

    As someone who isn't very knowledgable about Tracy's Kenpo, EPAK, or other variations, I'd appreciate any feedback regarding how Tracy's Kenpo could be described, in terms of the general characteristics of the art. The forms for Tracy's Kenpo I've seen on Youtube, seem to have more of a kung...

    Unfortunately, I had some unexpected repair bills to my car, and wasn't able to get going on those lessons with Sifu Art right away. We also have conflicting work schedules, and his fiancee is coming to the Denver area, from Hawaii in about a week, so Sifu Art is putting additional students on...

    First Fight

    Achilles95, Even the top pros in Western Boxing, Muay Thai, etc. lost fights somewhere along the line. It sounds like you've done some pretty good self-assessment, in terms of what you did wrong. Learning to relax, when you're in there with someone that's trying to take you out, only...
