    Default Akwa

    Does anybody know more about this organization?

    http://www.americankenpoworldassociation.com/page3.html

    Some members of this board are listed on the page linked above, so I was hoping you could share some information on this organisation, the website itself seems to be in construction.

    Some of the "board members" became board members without their knowledge or consent. I know Mr. Hale and Mr. Schulte were discussing this earlier today on Facebook. You might contact one of them for more details.

    I do believe I was on their closed facebook group at one time but I may have removed myself when I was doing some spring cleaning.

    WTF? How did my name get on there? What are they doing, taking their Facebook friends list and claiming them as members? Everybody knows I don't belong to any groups. I op out immediately when they throw me in. Thanks for the heads up sir. Hey Dave, you can have my slot. Hey I know, let's submit Dr. Stones name. Hee hee.

    This sounds familiar. Rich Hale was talking about it on his Facebook about how his name got added without his knowledge as well.

    Betcha wishin for the old days of, "Ron Chapel (pronounced chapel instead of shapel), never heard of him." Same statement usually followed by how well they knew Ed Parker. Fame has its price.
