    Default The Future of KenpoTalk

    I'm often asked where I see this site going, and what I hope to see it accomplish over the next few years. Here's a little of what has been on my mind recently.

    I want to see the site continue to grow. Right now, we're just under 800 registered members, and just past 46,000 posts. Unfortunately, not all of those registered are active members. I would love to see KenpoTalk have a solid active membership of 1,000 with 3,000 total members. I want to hit the million post point by 2010.

    I want to see out school and organization listings blossom. There are hundreds of great places to train, but we list only a small number of them.

    I want to see our resource section erupt, and make this site a -must go- destination for anyone researching anything to ddo with kenpo.

    I want to see us recognized as the best place to be, to discuss kenpo.

    I want the leaders of the arts feeling comfortable and welcome visiting us, to pass on their experience, advice and wisdom.

    I want every member to feel welcome and appreciated here.

    I want to see our video section be the premier kenpo video library online.


    I want a lot of things, don't I?

    None of that, is possible without your support. Your support has brought us this far. From a site that was written off by many to a major success in 2 short years.

    Over the next few months we will be making many changes some minor, some sweeping. Your feedback, your efforts, and your support are needed, to continue to grow us, expand us and make us better.

    We have added a new Admin, Matt McMullen, 2 new Global Mods, Billy Lear and Isis, as well as a new moderator, Martin Seck. They join us to help us take KenpoTalk to the next level.

    We need your help. Submit your schools and organizations, write articles, explain techniques, send in your videos, and more! We are built by your help, and without you, we are just another website.

    Lets be the best Kenpo community, the greatest Kenpo resource and the must-see place we are meant to be.

    2007, the year we break all the records!

    Who's with me?

    Bob,

    I am all for you trying to make this the best Kenpo site. IT ALREADY IS,Lets just try and keep it that way. I as a former Manager of a large constructon business recomend growing slowly and consoidating your gains. I have seen too many new companies try and grow too fast and make some bad decisions.
    Sometimes they would try and bring along some people that weren't quite ready for it and those people made some bad decisions and the companies failed in a couple of years. We don't want that. We only want to continue to be the best and we can. I am only looking at this from a business stand point
    and not an emotional one. Good luck With it!!

    I am Most Respectfully,
    sifuroy

    I'm onboard. I also would like to suggest a "political forum" here so we can debate the political issues of the day.

    Oh boy, Kenpo Democrats, and Kenpo Republicans...........oh, and Independents also!

    Man, the fur will really fly then. (that is, if we don't all knock each other out) We'll make Ann Coulter look slow.

    Next stop, "Face The Nation" on Sunday morning.(for those of us that can get up that early!

    There a forum for that type of talk on MartialTalk.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    yeeesh...

    if you ask me, that's one of the flies in the soup at Martial Talk.
    Stirs up bad blood amonst some who might have otherwise been good friends or at least corresponded cordially.

    ...if you like that sort of thing, try Martial Talk. It's very active.

    I feel that there is a place for that over on Martial Talk. My preference would be not to sully the waters here.

    Thanks Brother John,
    It’s a different level over there.
    Maybe I’ll take another look at it.
    Maybe not.

    There are some in depth discussions in the Study there, but they aren't for the faint of heart or thin of skin. Polite debate is encouraged, but not open warfare.
