    CarrollCounty Kenpo Karate’s Open House Mini Camp


    All,

    Carroll County Kenpo Karate is please to announce our open house Mini-Camp the weekend of November 17th & 18th. We will be celebrating our new studio with a weekend of kenpo.
    We have Mr. Frank Elsasser 9th degree black belt and Mr. Alan Jacob 6th degree black flying in to share their vast knowledge of kenpo with all.

Ms. Kathy Owen 7th degree black from Delaware, Ms. Marlene Shear, 6th Black from Delaware, and Mr. Tom Smith 3rd Black from Pennsylvania will all be sharing various topics both Saturday and Sunday. Best of all we will also have open seminar offered for non-AKKI members.
    If you plan to attend please don’t forget your kenpo clubs and practice knives.

    Seminar list and coast break down will be posted as will the registration form on cckenpo.com or cckenpo.net tonight.
    For those of you traveling here are the hotels in the area:

    you would probably want a flight into BWI or Philly.. Boston is way to far north to drive

    glad to have made it. it was an excellent camp. it would be great if there was an east coast mini camp every year/other year or something.. because vegas is just to expensive a trip (and including time off from work) to do for myself even once a year.

    ill get the picture of the folks that post on here up, sorry you couldnt make it Tracy, that would have been groovy.

    We're not AKKI, but we welcome any of our Kenpo brothers and sisters to attend the Kenpo in the Carolinas seminar.

    Over the last few years we've had EPAK and Tracy based kenpoist join us for a really good time and learning experience.

    Feel free to come if you like (I wouldn't mind picking your brain a bit about AKKI methods anyway ) You WILL be welcome.

    Wicked! lol! That sounds great. Escrima is it? I think our stick and knife stuff is heavily influenced by FMA.

    Sikaran. It's not one of the better known Filipino arts. Traditionally its an empty hand art, but my instructor includes stick, knife, clinch, and ground work as well. The system is mind-bogglingly huge.

    Sounds very interesting. One thing I like about American Kenpo is that the "vocabulary" is structured more towards "western thought". Is that also true with your art?

    Yes, and apologies to Alleydog! To get back on topic...the Open House in Westminster, MD sounds like a helluva good time. Good wishes to all those that are going and I *really* hope next year I can be a bit more mobile and start cruising out to some of these great events.

    I'm glad it was a good time. I can't wait to read peoples notes.
    I wish I could've went, but my son's soccer team had their semi-final game on Sat. and the finals on Sunday. We won the championship, so it was worth it. I did see Mr. Smith on Friday night at our blackbelt test and talked to him for a few minutes. He said you were going.

    Glad you all had a great time! The few times I've met Mr. Jacob I really had a blast. He has that "Kenpo Fire" and the "I don't know what" in French! lol!
    But, seriously, he is an awesome instructor. He's spent a ton of time with GM Mills and is a very enthusiastic teacher.

    Rich,

    Thank you Rich. It was great to have and your ribs there.
    Everyone that I spoke to seemed to have a great time and really liked the seminars. I know I did.
    Thanks to all who attend and thanks to Mr. Elsasser, Mr. Jacob, Ms. Owen, Ms. Shear, and Mr. Tom Smith for making our open house mini camp an event to remember. Their knowledge, professionalism, dedication, and talent is all truly inspiring. I would also like to thank our instructor, Mr. Mills. It is his constant refining, exploration, development, and testing of AKKI Kenpo that makes it what it is.

    Yours in Kenpo,
    Mike Guercio
