    Gus Sergakis is who you were thinking of in the columbus area. He does not pursue any students at this time. He is too busy tied up at work. There are a couple of guy's who broke away from Mr. Hatfield's studio several years back. One is Tim Hysell & the other is Larry Splain. All 3 of the...

    Looking for a school in Northeast Ohio

    If I'm not mistaken I think that rep. here in Ohio is in the toledo area. That's upper north west of the state towards Michigan. Could be wrong though.

    Looking for a school in Northeast Ohio

    Sure thing & I hope that it's a great school. This is why I was hoping that others would have responded on my thread below. It would be very easy to know there are quality people out there so that we, (as kenpoists) felt confident in directing a student towards a studio in their area. The only...

    Looking for a school in Northeast Ohio

    I appreciate the thoughts. If for some reason things do not work out I have a saturday morning class for my students who drive distances to come train. There are 4 that drive a great distance for their 2 classes a month. I realize our gas prices are on the rise, time also play's a factor in what...

    Looking for a school in Northeast Ohio

    I have personally never heard of him. Doesn't mean he is not a good instructor. I looked at his website & to me, it looked very vague. I wish you luck with your pursuit of kenpo.

    I'm sorry but I don't know any in that area. I teach in Lexington which would be a drive for you. Mr. Doyle is quite north of you as well. Unfortunately you are in between anybody I personally know. Take a look at the thread I started & hopefully that will help with your question.

    How far would you travel to train......

    My class is once a month. I teach semi privately at my own facility 4 days a week. When I was training once a week my drive time was 50 minutes from work then 30 back home. Guess we're not comparing complete apples to apples so to speak. Then again, there's roughly a 5hr. class w/Mr. Planas...

    Ok, Then

    I didn't want to PM anybody. I actually wanted a slight "semi public" discussion. In one of the threads I created within the last day I have a small problem with. I personally don't post on MT or on KT much. Not really too many threads have interested me. However, on KT I frequent the forum...

    Your favorite kick?

    As I have found over the years that the front kick is much often over looked. It's tried & true, always there when you need it. A straight line, aimed at a target is going to be faster. Just my opinion.

    EPAK - Current Rank & Time in the System

    This has been an interesting thread to go back & reread. It has laid to rest for 5 years in the archieves. Some of my friends I made back then are no longer on here. How about some of the newer people on here post about themselves once again?
