    Default Thanks to Takai

    Hi All,

    I've been visiting up near Oregon and I was just able to get on for a few minutes.

    Last night, I went to Takai's (Kurt's) school in Phoenix, OR.

    They made me feel very welcome. They haven't had group classes for awhile, so I was invited to join and to teach it. Apparently, their regular head instructor has been ill for some time and hasn't been able to teach groups, so his son has been standing in doing privates for the last 3 months.

    I discovered, when I got there, that they were under Tracy system. They didn't seem to know that either, so I wonder if their lineage is similar to Tracy but not directly from.

    *****I wanted to add that I think it's so great that a person can go visit another school in another state and feel so welcomed. It's very kind of them and we're going to do it again next week. Also, thanks much to this forum for making it possible!

    Perhaps Takai could tell us who they are through and some of you may know the lineage and can help shed some light.

    I also noticed that they don't do forward bows in long 1. None. I've never seen this before. Has anyone else?

    Sounds like a good example of Kenpo brotherhood. Glad you had a good time!

    I am glad you enjoyed it. It was fun to be reminded how out shape I am. (And how much more work my hip needs).

    In answer to your lineage question. It was explained to me as the following. Parker to Steve Fox to Mr. Days to our instructor Michael Boyce.

    I am really looking forward to next Tuesday as well.

    There aren't many in ours but there are some. I had to think about it for a minute. We don't do the punches that I've seen other branches of EPAK do. I think it's originally supposed to be that way, but was probably removed fromt the AKKI for some reason.
