To answer some of your posts below, yes it is true, I have recently been promoted to the rank of 11th Degree Kenpo Black belt by a panel from Atlantic City's Martial Arts, Boxing and Athletics community.
The panel consisted of 6 individuals, 2 which were from Black Belt Magazine. Chuck Norris my honorary brother, members of the CIA and the Artist formerly known as Prince also guested at this grading, so those who doubt its merit or authenticity can be under no illusions, this was a real test which involved the complete syllabus from my Kenpo system and also the many innovations to the system (directional harmony, contact manipulation, double factors ETC ETC) I created which Ed Parker himself commented on.
On the note below, I would have liked my old Kenpo partner, Mr Tatum (a fellow 10th Dan) to have attended too as it would have reminded me of the times we spent 8-10 hours a day practicing in his house which was of great benefit to both him and me.
Those who say I have been awarding myself belts are mistaken for whatever reasons, most likely their own. I will not comment on this scurrilous accusation from small minded part timers.

Ill bet his martial arts knowledge is astounding! (please detect the hint of sarcasm) Can someone be my honorary brother? I hear Chuck Norris is taken?!?!?!?

Thats odd considering I have never even heard of the guy?!?!?!? Sounds like he like to visit hotels wonder if he has or ever had a school....But of course if the artist formely known as prince sat in on his promotion along with someone from the CIA who am I to argue with that kind of validation!!!:shrug:

That doesn't look like much of a "prince" to me... More like a princess???
 
Hi all,

Being the moderator on the fellowship forum that was posted on, I had to find out if it was true, and supposedly it is. The guy has donned an "11th" (hard to type without being sarcastic).

Kenpo first arrived in Europe in the late 60's with Mr John McSweeny, when he travelled to Dublin to study. Mr Maughan received his Black belt in the early 80's (84 I believe) from Mr James Rice (Who I think is now a 7th.) He was graded to 6th about 6 years ago by Mr Tatum, but since then has mysteriously been awarded all his grades from someone (perhaps that same Atlantic city panel with Prince and the CIA guys who are actually senior ranking Kenpo blackbelts (remember Elvis? See !) *SARCASM*) till last year when he was suddenly a 10th.

Now it appears he is an 11th. Hmmm....new rank in my books. He has obviously caused a lot of annoyance and ruffled feathers in Ireland where he claims he is the "Senior Grandmaster" of the arts. What I find so tough to believe is that someone would have the audacity to claim such a thing. I dont think there is any way to be more disrespectful to Mr Parker (and his family), all the other 10th degrees out there (and the 9th, 8th and 7th degrees), and to his own instructor.

Making a buck is one thing, but to do something like that in my mind is just foolish/idiotic/disrespectful. He has pretty much been ostracized from the Irish Kenpo community (and I dont think anyone will argue - rightly so) but has caused a lot of damage in a community that is trying to heal rifts and displace anger and rivalry that has developed over the years since Mr Parkers death.

The fellowship (www.internationalkenpofellowship.com) has been trying hard over the past year to develop an international "community" where Kenpoists can thrive, get to know each other etc. (Check the site out if you get a chance)
Who knows, maybe this will help to gel people together that bit faster!

I still find it tough to think that someone would think its cool to wear an 11th!

Anyway, that was to just give a little background on the subject of that link. (Can anyone tell from my post that it pis**s me off ! ! ! :) )

In the near future, people will have to wear black belts that hang down to their ankles, so you can fit all the stripes. Of course, that could make you more prone to triping and falling flat on your face.
