I would like to put out a HUGE thank you to my Kempo brothers Master Chris Hatch and Matt Barnes (www.capecodmartialarts.com) and Master Jesse Dwier (www.dpkempo.com) for putting on one of the best and most well organized seminars I've ever attended. They rented out three ballrooms at the Westford Regency hotel and conference center here in Massachusetts, and brought in Prof. Kimo Ferriera (one of my Martial Arts Idols) and his beautiful wife Kiko-san, as well as Chosei Motobu Sensei with his top student Inaba Sensei (From Motobu Ryu Udunde, Royal Art of Okinawa), Master Bill Chun Jr. (Go Shin Jitsu Kai) and while we were expecting Kagenori Ueno Sensei, he was struck ill at the last moment and sent two of his top students (I'm sorry, I can't remember their names!!!) who put on a JigenRyu seminar. I attended all seminars with my instructor KenpoJoe Rebelo, as well as a cutting and iaido demonstration by the Jigenryu practitioners, which was incredible! It was also EXTREMELY exciting for me to get to see Nancy Lee Cerio (and of course Billy!) again, and for those who haven't seen her lately, she looks FABULOUS! We also got to meet up with a few MT regulars such as Marlon, CTKempoTodd and a few others, and a GREAT time was had by all. When all said and done, while I would have preferred a few days with each of these Masters, my head is still spinning with information. Thank you Chris and Jesse!!! I have a few pictures of myself with the seminar instructors on my school website (address below), and I know Master Dwier will be putting something together on his next week encompassing what I would imagine to be a lot more than just publicity shots like mine Thanks again to the organizers of this event! Oh, and once again, these seminars that showed us our roots, be we Parker lineage, Gascon lineage, or any other Ken/mpo lineage, it truly is the art that teaches you, as KenpoJoe would say, to "rip, gouge, maim and mutilate for fun and profit!"
