    I can fit into about 4 of those categories, Japanese kempo, Chinese kenpo, Hawaiian, and Parker. These days I get mentored by AC Rainey, and I consider Doc to be my main instructor, although it's from a distance.

    Tricky,
    I have several years of Okinawan Kempo (variant)
    Many many years of EPAK and off shoot
    and now my own System Phasic Kombatives Integrated, which is some what akin to the Dave Germans' system but not.
    all in all around 40 years.

    Holy-moly a original Rob Broad post? That post old, like the Randy Travis song, digging up bones.
    Anyone know, is Rob in jail, not in jail?

    If I’m not mistaken, I believe Rob passed away a couple of years ago.

    Maybe, but not a few years ago, I did a search and his LinkedIn profile was updated in the middle of 2019. So that answers my other question, not in jail.

    I think that you're doing yourself a disservice in the Dave German comparison. Dave in many instances took known "Kenpo techniques" and known "Jiu-jitsu techniques" and grafted them together. However because this was his chosen methodology, and even though it was effective in his hands, an experienced observer could readily identify the two techniques. In my opinion as I have observed you, I see a common shared theme that is the catalyst for your manipulations as opposed to extrapolating from a "Parker Technique."
