    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

    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

    You see, that's your whole bag, you preempt everything you do, a sort of mild hypnosis, and there are many others that do this as well. As a LEO, I'm sure you've seen vice members pop so called mediums, you know, the people telling you exactly what you want to hear and believing every word...

    I must say, you have some real issues regarding your chest for some reason, and I'm happy you're not, nor will ever be, one of my students if you percieve the attacks of the techniques as sexual assaults by the instructors. I teach them all the same, boys, girls, women, and men, and they...

    Let me get this straight, you've changed the Attack, you've changed the stances, and you don't do the same things most of the rest of us do for this tech.? If this is the case, why are you calling it Parting Wings? We've got other techniques for the attack you described that work much...

    Most effective Fighting Systems?

    Counterpoint is counterproductive, it involves what-ifs, and what-ifs plan failure, and learning something counterproductive will decrease your chance of actually using a technique when you need to. I don't teach failure. BTW, read the tag on options at the bottom of my posts, DarK LorD

    Pin or Check?

    As much as this discussion is coming up about the Pin or No Pin in Delayed Sword, everyone is still saying and doing the same thing from what I can read. As for your post, you're talking about the Even-If phase. The pin in Delayed Sword prevents the What-If from happening by sheer...

    I don't understand??

    This is as much about you as it is him, you set the example and he's following. You decided to create your own system because YOU WANTED to, after being told countless times what you were doing could be improved, a response you DIDN'T WANT to hear, so you did your own thing. What makes...

    7 things you can do to a technique?

    Hmm, guess I should stick with a basic model car, no A/C, radio, manual windows, and no power brakes. Seems to the same to me when they add the bells and whistles of creature comforts, and oddly enough, they make parts for them with the variants because it's the same car. Once a base...

    7 things you can do to a technique?

    Afraid you've got some things confused. Just because you alter a tech doesn't mean you're not doing the tech, there is something called rearrangement within ideal phase. You can also use the "Equation Formula" and still stay within the parameters of the ideal phase of a tech. Staying...
