Well would that make it the "Young Elvis" or the "Old Elvis?"

The body below the head of Elvis is Bob White's.
Don't know about the pictures in the clouds, sorry.

Respects,

Bob White must have a Young Elvis body! Ha ha ha!

It's not like Elvis will need it where he is.

Okie, if you've been looking at your copy of the Journey for hours on end to figure out who is on the front cover then look no more!

The mystery man on the cover to the lower left of the watermark of SGM Ed Parker, which if you think about it makes it on SGM's right hand side, is none other than...

Richard "Huk" Planas!

You can stop looking. Or start looking harder for some of you...Elvis indeed...Sheeesh!

Now, the debate can begin as to WHY they are there!

The Artist of the cover is the son of the Late SGM Parker, Ed Parker Jr. so as such....... put his father in..... as should be.... He (Ed Jr.) was also promoted and validated by Huk and he has a great amount of respect for Huk and his knowledge not to mention knowing him for a long time.

If you were going to imply that Huk was SGM Parkers "right hand man" (which is what I sort of got the feeling of) he most certainly was NOT. SGM Parker was asked this question over and over when he was living and his answer was always...... no one is my right hand man. I have a right hand woman (wife)! then he would laugh.

If in the opinion of the artist he views him as such, he obviously has the right, like anyone, to voice his feelings and often does.

As always this is JMHO.

I thought he was promoted by Ron Chapel, shows what I know. Maybe I should go back to school and learn how to read better.

How did you find out it was Huk Gou? Did you ask him or did EPjr tell you?

peace dog

I was going to say that the SGM is there because it's his Dad. Huk is there because Huk is like an Uncle to him. I don't know where you got this right hand man thing from.

Quick joke.

What is the one answer that most of the Kenpo seniors can agree on when asked who Mr. Parker passed his knowledge to?

"Me."

Ah ha ha ha!

Originally he was! Then in addition to Ron Chap'el's promotion, Huk, Trejo and Wedlake also promoted him to first degree a few years later.

LOL!!! I'm against an "under construction" posting on web
sites. Any good site usually is ALWAYS under construction. I'd
prefer "coming soon"
