    Default Notable students...

    Most everyone knows Elivs Presley studied Kenpo. Some know about Robert Culp....and even William Shatner! Can you name any other notables that have studied the art?

    Billy Idol, David Lee Roth, Bill Cosby, MacDonald Carey, and Elke Summer to name a few more.

    I think Glen Danzig studies Kajukenbo. What does Wesley Snipes study. From Demolition Man to the Blade movies, he's done some pretty realistic scenes.

    I do believe Wesley is a BKF man.

    Blake Edwards is all I can come up with for now...

    Once a whore you're nothing more i'm sorry that'll never change
    And about forgiveness, we're both supposed to have exchanged
    I'm sorry honey, but i'm passing up, now look this way...*" --Paramore "Misery Business"

    I did hear Antonio Banderas [ spelling ?] studied Kenpo but I can't confirm it.

    I believe Mr. Snipes studied Shotokan and Capoeira.

    David Lee Roth was into martial arts pretty heavily. I believe he still is.

    Don't forget Robert Conrad of "The Wild Wild West" series. He worked with SGM Parker some, and used it in some fight scenes in some episodes.

    Plus, all of the Osmond Bros. They were students of Chuck Norris. I read they discontinued when he could no longer work with them consistently.

    Correct me if I am wrong but, wasn't that pretty much the first introduction to the general US populace to martial arts in a TV Series?

    Dick Dale (surf guitarist) studied AK


    I've got a Speakman video and I SWEAR that Chris Kattan (SNL's Mango) is right in the front row
