    I'm Alvin been studying Tai Kenpo for the past 5-6 years. Dabbled a little in Kalis Kalis for a short time before my guro went off the deep end.

    Currently I train under Bob Adams and Laura Bandy Adams who in turn received their training under Master Ray Snyder.

    The older I get the more I wish I started younger.

    Hi, I'm Georgia. The first style I studied was Sam Pai Kenpo with Michael Richardson under Stephen Freers in So. California who was under Mr. Joe Dimmick.

    I no longer Kenpo, but will always hold a spot in my heart for it. I'll be lurking, mostly. Thanks!

    Hello all, my name is Sean. I suppose I've been doing this for twentyfive some odd years. I've dabble with some Korean and Japanese arts but Kenpo is more my speed.

    Thank you
    Sean

    Howdy!

    My name is Jynne (pronounced "gin" hence the nickname "Gin-Gin" given to me by Mr. Conatser). I'm a Blue Belt, and this is my 7th year being a Kenpo Addict, first under Brian Duffy now under Michael Billings (one of the Super Moderators on MT).

    Looking forward to becoming addicted to this web site too.

    Hello Everyone-

    My name is Tara and I am yet another Kenpo addict. My addiction started when I was age 13 in 1986- hasn't stopped since!! It's been quite the journey. I am currently a 1st degree black belt (since 1998) and interested in learning as much as I possibly can. My main instructor is Mr. Scott Halsey.

    Hello my name is Ron Chapél and I met Ed Parker in 1963 and studied with him until he passed in 1990.

    I met Mr. Halsey once in Chico at Mr. Epperson's school at a seminar (not likely that he would even remember me he was speaking with my instructor). I have also seen him on a number of occasions at Kocyla's Karate in Klamath Falls Oregon at seminars and tournaments. I am told that his staff set is quite remarkable.

    I used to go to college in K. Falls which is where I started Kenpo. I live about 2 hrs north of Redding.

    Hi folks,

    Dan Farmer here. Kenpo addict since 1971. Late of the Tracy's Organization. Ardent admirer and very long distant student of Doc Chapél's methodology. I, occasionally, say nice things in public about Dennis Conatser. LOL!

    Used to write and converse frequently on the forums, but don't get around much anymore due to job and life requirements.

    I am very glad to see so many new faces here. I'm one of those who has been hounding Kenpo forums since way back in the early days when there were only one, or perhaps, two.

    Hey to all my old friends.

    Dan

    I began my training in early 1981, and have been at it ever since.

    My name is Jim and I started training in the Philly area in 1985. Hard to believe it's been 20 years but I have, unfortunately, not been actively training all that time. I was really active for about two years (I also studied with Joe Palonzo in Baltimore for about a year) and then I moved to Rota, Spain for six years and couldn't find a kenpo instuctor. I worked out occassionally with a couple of local black belts who were both very good but I have not been actively training in many years.

    I live in Sarasota, Florida and it is kind of a kenpo wasteland here. Lee Wedlake is about 1.5 hours away and it is just too far given my family commitments. Ideally, I would like to find a local club and maybe affilliate with someone for promotion and in person training.

    I was fortunate to be able to attend 3 or 4 of Mr. Parker's seminars back in the mid to late 80's.

    Jim

    Welcome,
    Please post in the Jay T Will section!
    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.
