    Okay having never met Mr. Tracy I have no way to judge him as a person or martial artist. But just skimming his site I did find one thing that I really liked, and agree with 100%


    "But it is not just the number of techniques, it's how they are taught that defines Kenpo."


    For me this is exactly how I feel kenpo should be viewed.

    I have to agree with you on that one.
    you can have a million techniques, but if they are taught for technique sake alone, you're just learning dance steps.

    I myself am glad to see the information. I think it gives a representation of a side we haven't heard that much about. The only difference between a negative and a positive is a matter of opinion. I have found, especially in the martail arts, people will have varying opinions. As long as people understand that it is not about right or wrong, but merely an opinion, I think more people will be able to have better lines of communication.

    Nothing wrong with reading an opinion or someones information. Will has a reputation for this kind of writing but as long as you take it as one perspective I think there is nothing wrong with an opinion.

    A grain of salt or two is always needed when reading something as subjective as history.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    History is often subjective depending on who is writing it. And we all know what 'they' say about opinions.....lol. But I like to hear other peoples take on things. Each unique perspective can give you insight into what is true for you.
    Some of the article was contrary to others I have read, but I saw nothing insulting or offensive in what I read. I found it interesting and actually enjoyed it. Thanks for posting it!

    Reading history is good and I'm glad I had the chance to read this article. I wish it had more facts and left out the opinions. It seemed the farther you read, the more opinion it was and less fact.

    I agree CC. The down side is when people get emotional about the information. People should agree to disagree. Its funny how prideful the arts are, but yet I have always been trained to keep a clear mind and not cloud with thought of pride, ambissions, anger, etc. Maybe people need to remind themselves that their training doesn't stop in the physical application or the mental discipline, but the spiritual aswell. Not a religious reference, but the place of developing honor and tempremant(sp?).

    I couldn't have said it better! We all need to be reminded of that from time to time.
