Hi all

Funny thing I posted this 2-3 years ago and I just happened to log on today after not logging onto martialtalk for a long time.
Anyway, KenpoDave it could be the fact that Bruce was never on the family tree and/or I am not recalling what I may or may not have seen correctly. I thought I had seen him on it a long time ago. To the question of Bruce and his school in Orangevale Vic Hernandez was running it the last time I heard. It's been a while since I've talked to anyone in Kosho. Partially because I've become pretty busy with work and partially for personal reasons and political dissagreements with what is going on with Kosho. Either way I hope things are going well in the kai.


It could be. FWIW, men who are still very active in the Tracy System, such as Ray Arquilla, Ted Sumner, Roger Greene, Bart Vale, etc., are not listed as shodans on the tree, and do not show up in the rankings until about 5th, sometimes 6th black. I haven't looked real closely to see what the earliest date is, but I imagine that ranks bestowed before about 1985 are not shown on the internet Family Tree.

I can not comment on the mans rank or his true history, however I met him for the first time last week and must say I was impressed with his movemnet and knowledge.
My hope is that the next time I meet him I will have time to sit down and talk to him more and ask questions that have been brought up here. He seems more than willing to answere any question asked of him
