    Default MT: A week with any EPK instructor alive.

    A week with any EPK instructor alive.
    By Rich_Hale - Mon, 13 Nov 2006 04:08:17 GMT

    ====================

    If you could spend a week with any (living) Kenpo instructor, who would it be and why?

    Before you make a quick decision, consider you would be spending more than just mat time with the instructor. You would also be hanging out together, all day, everyday and having all your meals together.

    This would be a chance to really get to know the person, as well as his Kenpo.

    I really enjoyed thinking about this, so I figured some of you would too.

    Excellent thread idea.

    Wow that is a tough one too.

    I would say either Paul Mills or Ron Chapel.

    Reason:

    To get some exposure to their idea and take on Kenpo in general and their experience with SGM Parker and how they relate it in what they do today in their respective arts / system.

    I've been very blessed to have a lot of access to my instructor Bob Mitchell. As a 9th degree Black Mr. White is someone that my instructor always speaks highly of and he's not only a great fighter, but he turns out a lot of great fighters. I would also like to spend some time with Ron Chapel.

    Doc Chapel, hands down. He's extremely knowlegable about everything Kenpo- from technique to history. And if what he shares here works so well, immagine what he could show you in person.

    I would say either Mr. Chapel or Mr. Tatum. They both are extremely knowledgable and Mr. Tatum seems to have a extreme amount of power. I would love how to get that. For speed I would love to get some tips from Mr. Paul Mills.

    Would be cool if we could setup a "contest" that one of these instructors would let the winner stay and train with them for 5 days

    For me it would be Huk Planas. I love the way he teaches and the factthat he and are are both avid fishermen would make for some great times.

    What sort of a contest would that be? Like a typical tournament, or would it be an intellectual one to show how much knowledge could be expressed, or if this is a "go to the mat with each instructor" contest and they (instructors) make their own 5-day student selection? Interesting thought....

    I'd like to spend time with Mr. Rich Hale though. He has a lot of knowledge and I'd like to pull out each possible nugget from him.

    I'd also like to spend time with Mr. Lee Wedlake. I understand his forms are awesome and I could learn how he does them.

    EPAK instructor? ......geez that's a hard one. I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to train with any of them if for only an hour.

    No something random like the "golden ticket" or a lottery thing and the lucky winner gets a dream week with said instructor.

    Definately Mr. Paul Mills! Just being in the same room while he taught was electric. I think he has a great way of bringing out the Kenpo we all have inside. He actually answered one of my emails once, and his reply was very thoughtful and in-depth. I don't think he'd think any question was "stupid" or beneath him.

    I have to agree with that one!

    I don't know if you'd consider him "EPAK" due to his involvement with the IKCA, Jeet-kun-Do, the BKF, etc....but I think "hanging out" with Vic LeRoux would be a blast. Heck, anybody that's been quoted as saying, "...cops won't follow you into a busy intersection" has got to be loads of fun to party with!!! ROFL Not to mention, he's got quite a reputation for attracting the ladies....oh yeah....that's who I'm hanging out with! lol

    I'd have to go with Jeff Speakman.

    Since I'm starting on the 5.0 stuff, I'd get a big headstart on that.

    And the grappling wouldn't be bad either! lol.

    I think if that were the case, my husband would stow away in my luggage. ROFL.

    LOL. Yeah, I forced my family to watch "Perfect Weapon" once, and my mother and sister were drooling during the opening scene when Mr. Speakman had his shirt off doing his custom form.

    I can't wait to start hearing some things from you on this 5.0 material!

    Mr. Tatum and Mr. Chapel.

    Both for the same reasons. To feel their kenpo and how they execute each thing with the instruction behind the movements.
