    Here is a poll to get the ball rolling on trying to figure out where we stand member wise for different types of Kenpo/Kempo
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    I'm currently studying the IKCA curriculum but some of you know that for over 7 years prior I studied a predominately Parker influenced Kenpo with smatterings of Tracy influences in the curriculum from the Jay T. Will line.

    Currently I train at an AKKS affiliated school.

    Previously my instructor was studying under SGM Parker and Master Planas, so I guess it was mainline IKKA.

    Youngbraveheart- Are you from the GM Bill Chun lineage? It sounds similar- I thought it was Goshin-Jitsu-Kai Chinese Kempo or "Chow/Chun".

    I love this site!
    The above is just my opinion.

    Currently, I'm under Jeff Speakman.

    I was under the Tatum line, then a few I had no idea who, then Tracy, then back to Tatum and now Speakman.

    It has been a roller coaster.

    Well, I started out in a old curriculum (similar to Tracy), in the Parker-Palanzo lineage, but have since changed my focus to IKCA. So, since that's mainly what I'm doing now, that's how I voted!

    Hey Dianhsuhe....Yes, I am fortunate to be from the Chun lineage; I am a student of Master Bill Chun Jr. (Even though he is the successor to his father, Bill Chun Sr., he does not accept the title of "Grandmaster" because his father had that title; Master Chun acknowledges that there's only ever going to be one grandmaster in our style.) The use of "Kenpo" and "Kempo" in our name is to acknowledge and give credit to both the Japanese and Chinese influence.

    BTW were you aware of the upcoming Professor William K.S. Chow Memorial seminar in February 2007 to give tribute to the legendary most influential person in US Kenpo/Kempo history? (Posted in a thread on Martialtalk.com: http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39481 ) GM Kuoha was invited to participate along with other major Kenpo/Kempo branches: Emperado, Parker, Mitose, Castro, Cerio's Clan, and Chun. Unfortunately, GM Kuoha declined as stated on that thread and is the only major branch not to participate.

    I'm looking forward to this once in a lifetime seminar to see what everyone else in the Kenpo/Kempo world are doing...I suppose you're not going to be there since GM Kuoha is not going to be there...too bad...I'd make sure I introduced myself to you...(I don't think there will ever be anything else like this with the major branches involved.)

    Started in Chinese Kenpo (not IKCA)

    EPAK for most of the rest, even tried IKCA for a while (great spirit of brotherhood, love everyone involved in it) and eventually came back into EPAK 10/24.

    Question Re: Where do you fit in?

    Well....technically, aren't Sam Pai and SL4 Offshoots of EPAK themselves? I mean we both trace our roots back to the Parker lineage.

    At this stage, I may even be considered an offshoot of the Sam Pai lineage, as I have continued to evolve and develope after havin' left the Sam Pai nest.

    Sooo...am I an EPAK Offshoot ? Sam Pai ? or Other with qualifiers?

    I think the EPAK off shoot is a 10/24 or 10/16 variant is what he is asking.

    So you would be Sam Pai unless you have changed it to the degree you are a Sam Pai off shoot

    By EPAK and it offshoots I meant Parker - Planas, Parker - Palanzo, Parker - Conatser etc... lines

    SL-4 is according to Doc is a different animal than EPAK.

    Sifu DangeRuss from our conversations I would classify you as Sam Pai

    Talking Re: Where do you fit in?

    Mainly Tracy's for a large number of years.

    Did the IKCA curriculum without testing.

    Have done a little bit of investigating into SL4. It is a whole different critter, and should not, in my opinion, be considered an EPAK off-shoot in any way shape or fashion. Due to my inability to be close to Doc, I will never be able to rank or get into it in the depth I would like ...<sigh>

    Will, one of these days, be studying a bit with Dennis Conatser, so I hope ... How's the facility coming Dennis?
