    Default Doc

    I am in the Philly area dn you are across the country from me. I have been very impressed with your ideas and thoughts since I joined here, plus I am greatly humbled that someone of your seniority is willing to spend time here to help us.

    However, I want to learn more of what you have, do you have any affiliates/students teaching in the Philly area? Do you have any books or videos? and finally are you doing any seminars in hte Philly area anytime soon?

    Joseph,

    We are all impressed by "Doc's" great knowledge. By that I mean many of us that have been involved with Kenpo for over 30 years. We are still learning too. Also he has that special Way of imparting his Knowledge to us that I greatly enjoy.

    Yes he does show a lot of patience trying to educate us. We all thank him for it.

    I am Most Respectfully,
    Sifuroy

    Ditto, SifuRoy.

    While I've gotten into some serious debates with him and as such do not always agree with him, you can't deny the man knows his Kenpo!

    He has definately made me think about and evaluate my training on more occasions more than anything else. I guess you could say he keeps me on my toes. LOL

    There is a lot one could gain from training with him or those that follow SL-4. I know I wouldn't hesitate to get on the mats with 'em.

    When I first starting seeing his posts on here, I felt like he was attacking the American Kenpo that I come to love, however, I soon realized that hew as only trying to further Mr. Parker's work, like many others who I;ve met online.

    I am also learning that no one has a corner on the market. No one knows everything and not everything that someone knows is right. Each individual nugget has to be examined to see whether it is gold or just a rock. It only seems that some mines develop more gold than others and Mr. Chapel is one of those I feel.

    My goal is to develop my own personal training into the best I can. Taking nuggets from eveywhere I can find.

    That's a good goal to have.

    I once had the same question, and the answer I came up with was to host a seminar, Doc and Ryan came out, we had almost 50 attendees (which easily covered the expenses), I met some great people who are still friends, and I learned so much I am still working some of the science he dropped on us that weekend, 2 years later.

    It is far, far easier to do than you might think...

    If you manage to bring Doc to PA, I will do everything in my power to come down from Boston, possibly with my teacher or my training partner.

    Yes the man definitely makes you think. And it's good that we have a forum where his and others' ideas can be freely exchanged without hassle or ego, for the betterment of ourselves and our art.
