    Default Mr. Robinson

    Mr. Lawrence Robinson of Attitude First Martial Arts Academy was just promoted to 6th degree by Mr. Hancock at this past The Gathering, after 39 years in the Art.

    Well deserved Mr. Robinson, I have learned so much from you.

    I challenge 99.75% of tenth degrees to contribute to Kenpo and lives like this man.

    Okay then. So out of the multitude of high ranking Kenpoists out there, and by high ranking I mean professor, 5th and above, you feel the majority of them deserve to profess?

    A professor is one who professes an idea and can validate it and argue it against all willing to argue against. Of course this definition is prior to modern tenure.

    I do not know Mr. Robinson. A quick google search did not enlighten me as to what he has done for kenpo. I looked at the website you posted, and he appears to have a nice studio.

    Could you tell me what he has contributed which is beyond what most tenth degrees have contributed to kenpo? I am curious. I do not know many tenth degrees and am not familiar with what most of them have/should contribute to kenpo.

    Thanks.

    So is this thread offering props and sincere praise to Mr. Robinson, or a comparative pissing contest between him and other high-rankers? I'm confused as to the intention. Truth be told, if someone were to give me props, I wouldn't want it to turn into a comparative between myself and others. Jus' saying.

    Truth be told I don't know Mr Robinson from Mrs Robinson. I was just struck by the exactness of his numerical comparison to other professors.

    The thing is ... it is not the object of the props and praise that turned it into a comparative.

    We know the original poster is very loyal to Mr. Hancock.

    What we don't know is how many of the other 99.75 Senior Masters of the Arts he has had the opportunity to work with, on and off the mat, from which he could make his comparison.

    In this, I find myself agreeing with nelson.

    The .25% understand, or have learned the larger generalized principles.

    Their excellence is apparent, in their art, their students' art, and their students' student's art.

    Dear ECK,
    At last we agree on something ! Lol
    Enjoy your Sensei while he is still with you. Don't be as I once was and take tomorrow for granted as no man knows when his hour has come. Keep the highest standards of which you are capable let others remark as to the quality of your work and as such the excellence of your teacher.

    He has already blessed us. When the terrible day comes, when he can't answer my text, I am confident his students will. The learning is simple. The understanding is sophisticated.
