    Default KenpoJournal.mobi

    You know even a Kenpo-Techno-Geek like Doctor Dave . . . I mean . . . like many of my good buddies will find themselves out there without their laptop computer, notebook, technique sheets, etc. . . . but we are hardly ever without our cell phones.

    Therefore I give to you KenpoJournal.mobi (no Dave, it’s not just for you – it’s actually for everybody)

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with .mobi extensions, they are only available to web sites that are cell phone friendly. The layout requirements and other restrictions, for .mobi web sites, insure that any site using the .mobi extension will display properly on a cell phone.

    Well, now you can go to KenpoJournal.mobi and access all 154 self defense techniques & extensions through 3rd Black – exactly as they are written in the Kenpo Journal.

    Why? Other than for the (most obvious) reason of Doctor Dave’s inability to memorize a simple 178 page (82,472 word) technique manual that I included in the Kenpo Journal for him, I thought it may be of some convenience to the rest of us as well . . . not to mention the cool-factor of being the fist one in your school to flip open your phone and say, “Hey, check this out!”

    On a serious note, the purpose of the Kenpo Journal, and to an even greater extent, my individual purpose as a martial artist, is to Preserve and Advance the Ed Parker System of Kenpo.

    It is my sincere hope that what I teach one-on-one, what I teach in my classes, what I share in my Kenpo Journal, and now, what I have made available to the 2 billion cell phone subscribers worldwide will assist in this effort.

    That is cool. I may have to get another cell phone just for that.

    Is this available for those who already purchased the Kenpo Journal, or is this a separate purchase?

    Ceicei,

    www.KenpoJournal.mobi is simply a web site that is accessible with any cell phone that has internet. There is no charge to access the site.

    I would be interested to hear from those how have accessed the site, as I'm just one guy with one phone. If there are any issues with the site, I'll work to resolve them.

    If you can't access the site on your phone see if you can access it on your computer. The .mobi extension isn't exclusive to cell phones, it's just normal site and can be accessed with any computer. The only difference is that .mobi sites must be formatted for cell phones. You will see that when accessed with a computer it has a simple, long and narrow layout.

    As for me, I was able to access the site the moment I uploaded it. My cell phone and web hosting service have nothing to do with each other, by the way. My cell company is AT&T and my web sites ( www.PacificKenpo.com, www.KenpoJournal.com, and www.KenpoJournal.mobi ) are hosted my Network Solutions.

    In other words if my phone can access the site . . . anyone else should be able to also.

    Not just for me? It can't be true!

    This is wicked cool, Rich. I have been avoiding updating to a modern cell phone from an older version (doesn't even have a camera, text capability, or e-mail access); you just gave me a reason to get one made in this century.

    Absolutely awesome, Mr.H. Thanks, from all of us in kenpo.

    Mr. Hale, many thanks! Always apreciate this kind of effort, sir.

    I can barely answer a call on my cell, so that feature might not do me much good. But I love being able to access this kind of info on my computer. Being as I'm on my own here, it really helps.

    Same here. I have a Blackberry on Verizon's network and it does not work. I get a blank screen.

    Does javascript have to be enabled to make it work? I can bring up the home page, but clicking on the belt technique links bring up blank pages.

    If knowing what I use will help in troubleshooting, I use a Sidekick II.

    Re: KenpoJournal.mobi

    I am going to rebuild the technique site over the weekend.

    I have read that xhtml is more suitable for cell phones than html, so I will give that a try and see if more people can access the site.

    In that I have to recreate each page it will take a couple of days to complete.

    I guess anything worth having is worth working for . . .

    Okay,

    I have recreated all the technique pages in XHTML, so if you would like to see if your phone will work now please do.

    You may want to check out this link first (on the computer) as it's what you should see on your phone.
