Seig said:There is no mention of Woo, that is undisputed. What also is not disputed is that Master Woo, decided not to sign the publishing contract. That means he gave up all rights to the book. Nice, no; legal yes. The one fact that remains is that the one living person that knows for fact what happened, isn't telling. That means the rest of it is speculation and hearsay. Will Tracy himself writes, "I do not claim what I write be absolutely correct."
And what are the statements of Woo? http://www.tecnoscan.com/sifu/abhp2.html That link is one of your sources, and it says nothing other than what I conceded. Your quote from the Journey says nothing more than they dissolves their partnership due to a differnece of approaches.
Actually, this is incorrect. There are printed writings from Mr. Parker, interviews, and video tapes of him. None of this is hearsay, but verifiable fact.
Opinion is the key word here, opinion is not fact.
Again, since there is no link to the entire article, and I have only your quote, which may or may not be in context, it is subjective. I take my instructor's work and "run with it" all the time. The question here is, Did Mr. Woo ask for credit?
You are accusing Ed Parker of plagiarism. I guess that is your right. Once again, this is splitting legal hairs, as Mr. Woo did not persue it. That would be fine if your findings were objective, but they are not. Will Tracy is a liar. He says, "Does this make me a liar because I said Ed stopped teaching?" The answer to that is yes. Ask Dennis Conatser if Mr. Parker stopped teaching.
Ed Parker had a lot of students leave him over the years, most instructors do.
I never said he was off limits because he was dead. I am not deifying Ed Parker; nor do I think Adolph Hitler is a relevant comparison.
Lible is the defamation of character in writing in a public venue. Will Tracy cannot prove his statements. His so called "proof" is "not one has yet to make an 'offer of proof' that anything I have written is incorrect." Will is using proving a negative as proof positive. :bs:
That would be up to the estate, not me.
The only thing I am avoiding is unmitigated ********. I have never sanctified anyone. Mr. Parker's personal imperfections have no bearing on me as a Kenpoist. What does have bearing is the system he left behind for people like me. The attacks made on him by people like Will Tracy are a transparent attempt to discredit the system by discreditng the man. That obviosuly cannot be done, as you say yourself.
I never made an attempt to remove Mitose, but as it has been said, what Chow taught Parker is small in comparison to what we have now. Mitose does not have a direct hand in this.
Finally, some common understanding.
The Tracy's are making Mitose out to be something that has been proven false. He was a conman and a killer. His "history/lineage" is not proven as they would have you believe. There are literally dozens of discussions on that, and I am not going to rehash them all.
There is no "wishful thinking" on my part, Leilani Parker had much litigiation going on after he husband's passing. I would be very much surprised if she did not file some kind of suit. She may not have, I don't know. The known fact is, Al Tracy removed these articles from his website.
The only thing that makes me fidgety is when people take crap for gospel.
I say again, you have nothing. I have examined the "sources" with the exception of the Inside Kung-Fu article you quoted. Maybe, just maybe, the people that do know the inside story stay quiet because there is no point in arguing with a fanatic or someone whose mind is made up.
What James Ibrao is doing now is irrelevant. The pics are indeed "nifty".
This isn't about a vast Tracy conspiracy, this is about the ravings of one man, Will Tracy. Will Tracy is not a Parker black belt, nor is he a Tracy black belt. This alone, at least to me, speaks volumes. Al Tracy offers nothing one way or the other on the subject.
Your welcome. One final point, I would have to known the man to base my opinions on emotion.
Thank you sir.
