    Default Anyone know Dennis Tosten?

    Mr. Tosten was my first instructor's instructor for many years. Just curious if anyone knows him.

    I don't think my last post went through so I will try this one again.

    I have trained with Dennis many times, and even slept and trained in his dojo in Philadelphia back in 1992 when I competed at one of his tournaments the next day.

    He's a great guy, hits extremely hard, and is very knowledgeable. The last I heard he was a 9th degree under Joe Palanzo.

    I first met Mr. Tonsten in 2000 at the WKKA camp. And I will see him again at this years camp because I am coming home to test for my 3rd degree black belt.

    Dennis Tosten, who is now a 10th degree in EPAK, will be in my hometown in London, Ontario for a Kenpo camp in 2 weeks.

    Does he still teach regularly with the WKKA? I might try to make it out if I can fit it into my schedule.

    Yep, and my instructor who studied under him has a similar "resumé," only about 5 degrees down!

    Besides being a darn good Kenpoist, Dennis is one heck of a great fighter. I have several fights of his on tape. You just don't want to eat his side kick, LOL.
