    Default AKF Camp Oct 7-9th, pict and review

    This is the annual Kenpo Spirit Camp that was held at Mr. Duffy School. I'll post here since the powers that be decide to get rid of our folder.




    The camp itself was an excellent experience. There were belt exams on Friday evening, and beginner classes started bright and early 8am Saturday. During the Advanced class Saturday schedule we started with Mr. White who worked throught some painfully good quad drills and sparring entries. He also spoke of taking an honest inventory of ones skills and being in service to our students. It was an excellent session. He also brought several students that were humble and very helpful. Next was Mr. Trejo, who is always a treat. He followed up Mr. White by continuing with offensive entries from a freestyle position and gave us additional insight into fighting applications. The next session was with Mr. Salantri. He focused on Knife disarms. He showed us several responses to attacks and looked a couple of alternatives within the Kenpo knife techniques. It was another high energy session.

    The next day we started with Gary Stier, a Tai Chi master and learned a form called the 8 section pattern (without looking at my notes). We then continued our studies with the other instructors covering completely different information on day two. It was really an excellent camp and introduced us to a new high level instructor in Pat Salantri. I'd encourage anyone intrested in some good solid Kenpo instruction to invite any of these gentlemen down.

    Great pic & recap, Jason! I hope you'll consider dubljay's suggestion & create your own photo gallery with more pix...(just click on the "photo gallery" button above & choose "create/edit my album").

    Or I could get some picts from the other schools that supported this camp. Oh wait, no other Kenpo school in Texas supported this camp with any student or instructor participation (but I could be wrong, maybe there was a white belt from another school), at least not in the advanced ranks...That includes Mr. Billings, Mr. Schorder, Mr. Abedin and none of the San Antonio group either. Pretty sad, considering it was Mr. Salantri's first trip to Texas. Those that didn't support are certainly poorer for the experience. Just because it isn't LaBounty doesn't mean you shouldn't show support (even if you just show your face). Of course, these are just my thoughts and I'm not known for not sharing them...

    Please disregard my venting. It is no longer an issue I care about pursing.
