I have only hung out with Zack for one weekend, and I would recommend to anyone in Kenpo or studying any other art to check this guy out. Very good instructor with lots to offer.

I don't think much of Kenpoists but Zach kicks *** and represents well.

Plus he punches people in the nutz for fun and I can dig that.

Just don't ask to see him do it....
Hmmm...things to bring to this years JKKenpo camp...
A reminder to see Zach 'demonstrate' with Gou...
Paintball gun....
beverages. :rofl:

I've heard nothing but good things about Zach from a number of folks.
I have news for you. If you expect me to use kenpo techs on the gun issue you're in for a surprise.

Since the element of surprise is gone for me I won't be doing them easily either. It's unrealistic because you WILL shoot. You PLAN on shooting and you EXPECT me to do something. So if I was do to anything I should do it full out and you should expect to get hurt. That might make you think twice about actually shooting. It evens out the playing field if you think your finger is going to get broken in a few places.

I discussed this with Huk anyway and he said he demo-ed for you the techs. If you are not satisfied with his teachings then what I have to do won't make you happy at all.

As for Zach, you ought to ask to see the video tape of him dragging my *** across the floor in handcuffs as I try to resist while he demonstrates police tactics.
Hmm...broken finger (probably the good one too) and pain, or, watch Zach drag Gou around like a skinny sack of potatoes and still be able to lift a mug.... Its a hard decision....but, my lack of likeing pain (cuz it hurts me) wins out...well, that and I'll need a working hand to eat popcron while watching Gou do the dance. :)

Seriously, I have found nothing but good things about Zach everywhere I go. Kenponet had alot of folks raving about his "Kenpo Counterpoint" drills, and if I could get to Pittsburgh I'd stop in.

Please post a review of the seminar afterwards.

Philly? Philly? Philly?

Try Pittsburgh. Home of Iron City beer, the Steelers, The
Penguins, MARIO, The Three Rivers, The Pirates, Chipped Ham,
Station Square, The Fort Pitt tunnels, and an economy still trying
to recover from the wide spread shut down of 90% of the steel
mills in the area.

Zach has his own police gun stuff that is wild. Ask him about it.
