Hi GD7,
Mr Mills will be teaching at the seminars along with several of his higher ranking black belts. Its great to be able to get him out to the east coast. Hope this helps.

Mace answered it for me. Mr. Paul Mills and the AKKI high
ranking Black Belts will be conducting the seminars with
Mr. Mills. It should be a good time for all.

Hi GD7,
Well, the last time I trained at his house he mentioned your name and said that you two have had good discussions in the past about AK. So I'll lob that volley back into your court. :D As for my opinion,I wouldn't train under him if I didn't think he was good. I expect most students of kenpo would answer the same about the heads of their associations.
Respectfully,
Mace

Good Response..... you didn't take the bait. LOL....... Yes, I have know Paul for over 20 years.. I find him to be quite a unique individual and enjoy him immensely! Your choice of instructors is excellent!! (Well, there is one other that you could not loose with) lol..... Paul has a great working knowledge of the Art learn as much as you can while you can. Keep your eyes and ears open to additional options as well...

Tell him Hi for me........ And would you do me a HUGE favor....... when you see him would you give him a pack of gum. (tell him I told you to do it and watch his face)! I'll wait to hear what happens!:)

Thanks.....

LOL,
I'll offer up the hello and the pack of gum for you, I just hope that I don't "feel" his response during the seminars. LOL. Boy I hope the phrase "don't shoot the messanger" is universal!!
All kidding aside, Mr Mills has said roughly the same about you, that you are a fantastic instructor/kenpoist and seems to respect your knowledge and ability greatly. As for keeping my eyes and ears open, I always do. There are people such as yourself outside of the AKKI whose opinions and thoughts I follow closely. I always try to keep my cup empty, but I do tend to question everything. Ha. Thanks for all the wisdom you have shared here.
Respectfully,
Mace

The AKKI East Coast camp is coming up soon and since this was getting passed back on the Kenpo page, I thought I'd bring this info back up.

Mr. C, I've heard a lot of good things about you and if you're ever in the Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia area let me know. I'd like to have a chance to meet the ole timers who knew Mr. Parker. I didn't have the honor to meet him. Everytime I talk to Mr. Mills and others, they always have stories of their time with him. I feel that even though I never met him, I get to know him through the stories.

Just wanted to let anyone who may be interested know that the seminar schedule has been posted at the AKKI website. Check in Seminars and Events for a downloadable schedule. Hope to see some of you there next Friday.

I live in Stafford Springs which is on the Mass border. I'm about 80 to 90 minutes from New Bedford. Whereabouts do you train in NB?

Hi GD,
There are a few more than that in the NB area if I'm not mistaken, but no AKKI. We're all in CT with one school and 2 clubs. We may be small, but we are still our own state. :rofl:
