    Smile KenpoEMT

    Hello...again,

    I changed my username and thought that perhaps I should introduce my new username here.

    Formerly: Theban_Legion
    Currently: KenpoEMT

    Theban_Legion was a bit cumbersome for a username, not to mention the religious overtone.

    Anyway, what's been going on with me:

    I decided to withdraw from college for a bit. I had to make a decision about career vs. education. That was probably one of the most difficult decisions that I have ever made. I have sacrificed a great deal in order to start a career in EMS...looks like withdrawing was just one more sacrifice to add to the pile. I am hoping that once the Paramedic class is over I will be able to return. We'll see. I was looking forward to Calc (yeah, I'm a masochist!)

    I'm basically working three and a half 24hr shifts straight (ugh!) followed by two full days of Paramedic stuff (just finished General Pharm, Yay!) and one day off per week. Freakin' killing me, man. I only have about 11 months left of a year and a half long course. I just might survive...

    Kenpo wise, my membership with the AKKI expired in May and I couldn't get my regional rep or his direct student to respond to any of my emails, so unfortunately for me, that's basically over with. [Although, I would like to say that Mr. Jacob was very helpful. That will always be appreciated.]

    So, anywho, I'm back with EPAK. I decided to join the LTKKA simply because of GM Tatum's Kids at Risk program (well, that and GM Tatum is an awesome Kenpoist!), and I'm still working with the Lamkin bro's material. [as a side note, they just started the American Kenpo Research Council. Brilliant idea, I think]


    Well, that's pretty much it. Just wanted to clarify the username change so that there would be no confusion.

    See ya around.

    Wow, that is strange. You have a PM.

    RR, I've responded to your PM.




    Just to clarify, I certainly didn't intend to sound as if I was attacking the AKKI or one of its reps. This is just the way things have worked out. It's disappointing, but it's not a problem. My life is incredibly full at the moment anyway.

    Besides, I think that it has given me a slightly different perspective of Ed Parker's American Kenpo. The next few years of training should be interesting, to say the least.

    Life is full of sacrifices. I hope things work out for you though. School isn't going anywhere and eventually you'll get back to it... if you want to anyway. Good luck training with LTKKA! I hope you enjoy it and learn tons of valuable info 'cause then you can share it with the rest of us! LOL
