    Default Who do you respect on the "forums"

    I have been on these forums a little more than normal and I have gained respect for certain individuals based SOLELY on their posts! I have never met these quality people but have learned to read CLOSELY when they post-- Individuals like, Sigung John Bishop, Rob Broad, Amy Long, Jamie Seabrook, Hemi and the whole Gimpat/Celtic Crippla crew come to mind... There are a bunch of great people on here that I did not mention but these are just a few off the top of my head-

    I am not trying to kiss-up but there are some seriously good folks on here!

    Is that Kosho guy on here? Blackcatbonz? He is a great asset to his system--- I take it upon myself to "try" to represent Kara-Ho Kempo on the web and answer questions and I know Blackcat does also---

    So who do you respect that you know only via these forums? (people that have a crush on Gimpat or Tess do not count)

    Cheers!
    The above is just my opinion.

    Well, thanks James!

    I read yours closely as well.

    I always read Pete's, Jamie's, Camey's (when she's posting), MLKKA's (infrequent but always worth reading), Crippler (sometimes for knowledge and sometimes for amusement) and lots of others. Seig has been posting a bit more lately and those are always thought provoking.

    Jason is a man of few words, but he usually has something to say.

    I feel like this is the Academy Awards -- I'd hate to leave out someone important.

    There are more, but I'd have to open another screen and go through the member list.

    Overall, I've learned a ton from this forum and it has been very motivating. Unfortunately, where I am now, I have essentially nobody to workout with on any regular basis and, as for teaching, I'm somewhat on my own, so having this forum to bounce things off of and get feedback about has been really great. Sometimes just one or two little sentences from someone in passing gets me thinking...... a dangerous proposition, but helpful.

    So thanks to everyone.

    Thanks so much for the kind words about my posts. If you have any questions about Kenpo, never hesitate to send me an email and I would be more than happy to help in any way that I can.

    I am sure the same can be said about any of the other people you mentioned.

    !

    I have to agree I have a great deal of respect for the people you have named above. And a long list of others that post here. I don’t want to start with listing names for a lot of reasons but the biggest being my memory is not the best and I am so bad with remembering names. I would hate to leave a name or two out of the list. I am also flattered to find myself listed next to a group of such knowledgeable people when I am just a beginner. I have also never met anyone from this forum in person but I have a lot of respect for many of the people that post here. I Read the responses that are left to questions I ask with wide eyes and pen and paper ready.

    Thanks to everyone for making this place my home away from home

    It's quite a coincidence to find this post. I was speaking with my Sifu tonight and we were discussing the "old days" and how fragmented Kenpo became during the 80's and early 90's. The entire art suffered as a result but times are-a-changin'.

    I've never met or conversed with anyone involved with Kenpo that didn't have something positive to contribute. It quite honestly saddens me when egos, greed, or personal agendas interfere with the furthering of the art itself.

    We are all supposed to be brothers and sisters because of our common love of the art. Before KT, I tried a few other MA forums and had become very disheartened by what I experienced. KT, on the other hand is full of people that make positive contributions and freely share perspectives and ideas with each other regardless of organization or lineage.

    To me... that's what it's all about. Helping each other to grow and become better people as well as better martial artist. By sharing ideas freely the art will grow and improve, therfore so will all of us and even people that do not even realize it because we all touch other peoples lives that do not post here! How cool is that!?!?! ...Very!

    In short... though we will not always agree, I respect you all and your points of view and contributions. That will be what sets our generation of Kenpoist apart, the fact that we can agree to disagree and not try and kill each other because of it. LOL.

    Full Salute to All!

    Thanks for the Kudos. I try to represent Kenpo and the AKKO as best as possible, so I try to answer posts and post my opinions accordingly.

    I have not been on these forums long but I also enjoy reading many of your posts.

    Keep up the brotherhood / sisterhood and together we can continue to perpetuate the art.

    I respect everyone here. Always great opinions on things. I don't know much about American Kenpo, which is why I don't post or respond as much, but I always read and learn something from almost every thread.

    Its hard to NOT respect anyone here...no one really comes across as uppity or snotty. No one acts like they're better than anyone else or (at least publicly) puts down another member becauset hey don't kow as much or have had as much experience.

    Now what would be really cool is if y'all would come to the KT meet and greet in August *hint hint nudge nudge wink wink*

    Was that a "Python" reference?

    Why don't you and Bob come down for Dragon Con? You know you want to. You can meet the cast of "Firefly" amongst other things. They also open every year with a 'rasslin show! I got to be a lumberjack one year for the main event. That was great!

    Well.....except for Crippler. He's pretty uppity. Thinks because he shaves his head that he's better than all of us.

    That is a really loaded question. When leaving some out it may lead to hurt feelings or what not.

    I will choose to keep names off. Those who actually know me knows that I'm very enthusiastic about Kenpo and love to train and train hard. It's the only way.

    I have a lot of respect for a lot of people here and some I've yet to meet but want to one day for some training.

    I have more to say but have chosen to post on only topics I want to engage in conversation on. I'm kinda posted out on forums at the moment. Just have too many on my bookmarks.

    That was a very minor attempt at a teeny bit of humor.

    Re: Naming names: You're right; it's hard to mention everyone. I forgot to say TheDan too. There are others who catch my attention, so it's hard to put everyone.

    I have met a few people on this forum. I know Camey from Vegas camp last year. Darryl is my instructor. I know MLKKA from the last two camps. I also met Jamie last year long enough to take his picture, so I have sort of met a few people on here.

    Hopefully, after Vegas and Baltimore, I'll know even more of you.

    Thank you for mentioning me Dianhsuhe, I am very flattered. There are too many people I respect here on KenpoTalk to name, but I will say above all it is Bob Hubbard since he is teh one who has given us this wonderful playground.

    Well, Rob, you were a given. As is Bob.

    Really too many people to mention.

    There are some new people who have said some great things, but since they are new, I don't know them well yet.

    This is just a really cool place. It gives me a much-needed boost of ideas for things to work on. Sometimes I get stuck doing certain things certain ways -- not because I think it's the only way to do it, but rather because it doesn't occur to me to try something new. This site gives me brain fodder, which I appreciate. It's all about the Kenpo.

    It may have been better to redo the "Who would you like to train with thread" rather than the title of this thread. Nothing wrong with this thread but there's so many people on here.

    I really have a lot of respect for people that endeavour to pass, preserve, and research new knowledge in order to make the martial arts journey an exciting and hopefully lifelong ride.
