    Default Fantasy Camp

    A recent phone call sparked an idea in my head so I am going to turn it into a thread.

    If you could host a camp with 5 Instructors who would you have teach at your camp and why.

    I only ask that you keep it to instrcutors who are still alive.

    Let's see....

    Larry Tatum - always appreciate his seminars
    Huk Planas (never met him but heard good things)
    Mike Lambert - Love his unique viewpoint
    Steve LaBounty (again, never met him, but heard good things)
    And....

    Hmmmm......

    I just saw Frank Trejo.

    I enjoy Lee Epperson and I really like Patrick Kennedy from Ireland.

    Tough call. There are lots of people I haven't seen before, so I don't know how great they are to learn from (probably really great).

    Okay.

    4 years later.

    Dr. Dave Crouch - Can't get enough of that.

    Ron Chapel - Two seminars is never enough. Bam! Pam! Thank you Ma'am.

    Pat Salantri - I only have seen one of his seminars and he introduced some great concepts. He's enthusiastic and fun.

    Lee Wedlake - I always enjoy Lee. I get to see him twice a year and I always come away with something great.

    Lee Epperson - He does more juijitsu-type stuff than Kenpo these days. But he's a ton of fun and the last time I wanted to see him I got sick on the last day of camp and had to go to the hospital.

    --Amy

    There are others, of course, but I haven't seen them yet so I don't know how enlightening they are. Plus, he said only 5.

    Love working with Jason Arnold, but would like to meet Tatum, Huk, Ed. Parker, Jr., and Doc, in no particular order.

    There are so many others I would just love to meet and there are so many I don't even know I would like to meet, lol. In time I hope to attend more camps and eventually be able to do more traveling in the future.

    Oh yeah. I would like to meet Paul Mills and see his stuff.

    Then I'd have to trade in Dave, because I get to see him when he's not at a camp or seminar.

    Marty is fun because for a man of his age, he has more energy and enthusiasm for at least 3 or 4 20yr. old marines.

    My top five right now would probably not be Kenpo guys...

    probably off the top of my head something like..

    1. Rorion Gracie/Rickson Gracie
    2. Mikhail Ryabko/Vladimir Vasiliev
    3. Gokor/Gene Labell
    4. Dan Inosanto
    5. Fedor Emilianenko

    my top 5 Kenpo guys that I want to have some in depth time with, for a variety of reasons from interest in their specialized areas of perceived expertise, or the fact I have not met them yet, or other reasons....

    1. Doc Chapel - Met a couple times now and interested in his entire curriculum in more detail.
    2. Paul Mills - Never met or seen anything from him really
    3. Mike Picks - Met and interested in his Knife curriculum specifically
    4. Chuck Sullivan - Never met or seen anything from him really
    5. Dennis Conatser - met him briefly, have heard hes a walking encyclopedia of info, stories, knowledge, etc..

    I could list another dozen or so Kenpo people who I would not pass up the chance to see, listen to, train with, meet, etc..

    1. Paul Mills; because I KNOW he's got TONS of good stuff to impart.
    2. Dr. Dave; because I like his varied and diverse background and what he's shared with me so far has been fantastic.
    3. Doc Chapel; depth of knowledge and a different take on Kenpo.
    4. Huk Plannas; depth of knowledge / insight.
    5. Dan Inosanto!!!!! Though not known for it, he was a Kenpo-ist. I'd LOVE to see/hear his insights on Kenpo from the perspective he has now.

    Post Re: Fantasy Camp

    Like most of us 5 is not enough in Kenpo. Not to mention other martial arts.
    Five Kenpo teachers that jump out in my mind are:

    1. Jim Thompson - I'm not sure if he is still with us, but I had the opportunity
    to spend several months with him a few years back and he is a good teacher, tough, intense and has good stories.

    2. Dr. Dave Crouch - Have not met Dr. Dave yet, but I like his approach to training and his knowledge of the body and healing.

    3. Paul Dye - I met him at a seminar many moons ago and he was friendly, his techniques has power and his students stay with him for many years and are like family.

    4. Doc Chapel - I am not meticulous with most things, letting my other attributes that over, so learning from Doc would be good for me.

    5. James Hawkins - I also like his approach to training and self defense. I like his mello intensity. Plus he makes me laugh.
