    Here you go.


    Discuss....


    Not to start an argument, but Steve Sanders? No Al Tracy or Larry Tatum, but Steve Sanders....I guess there's things I don't know.

    I saw this on MT and I went to the site for a couple minutes... It seems the EXISTING Hall of Fame member get 1 nomination vote per year.

    Glad GGM Parker is on there but I was sad to see that Professor Chow is not...

    Professor William Kwai-Sun Chow of Hawaii was probably the most significant kempo master in modern history. He was the teacher of Parker (EPAK), Emperado (kajukenbo), Chun (Goshinjitsukai Chinese Kempo) and GM Kuoha (Kara-Ho inheritor) MANY others claim him in their family tree or claim to have trained with him even if it was brief... Cerio, and Castro as well.

    It would be nice to see Professor get his "due" finally...
    The above is just my opinion.

    Stev Sanders was one of the most winning tournament fighters in the early days and creator of the BKF along with Donnie Williams. In a turbulent time when everyone was trying to find themselves Steve Sanders was out in the forefront competing and making Kenpo a known commodity.

    There is no doubt Master Steve (Sanders) Muhammed is worthy of such an honor (Regardless of some of the questionable information regarding African history etc. that you might run across in his book BKF KENPO I highly recommend it.) It's not his fault who is and who is not chosen. Al Tracy may be too controversial for some people...I don't know. I don't think he needs anyone's approval...not from those of us who study his system anyway.

    Is SGM Ralf Castro on the list?
    I also think that SGM Parker should have been an inductee for MAHOF before his passing.

    Oh yes I see he is on the list for 2002.
    I am supprised that SGM Al Tracy and SGM Larry Tattum are not on there. Perhaps it is just a matter of time. The list only show who has already been inducted. And there are many HOF's out there. The one in Cleveland I believe has Master Tracy. But don't quote me on that. I would have to look that one up.

    Am I the only one who thinks Professor Chow should be on the list? Geesh

    Certainly Steve (Sanders) Muhammed deserves to be on there more than many of the others. Perhaps they should also have shown him the respect of using his chosen name. Lot's of important people not on there Angel Cabales, Leo Gaje, Remy Presas, Huk Planas, Doc Chapel, Larry Tatum, Lee Wedlake, etc., etc. It's just a list designed to make someone a buck and as such doesn't deserve our time interest or money.

    Only so many people can be nominated and get inducted each year. So it will take some time for everyone to get in.
