    Default Who

    Who has been the most influential Kenpo Senior that you have had the opportunity to train with through either regular classes, seminar or camp.

    Who else would like to see that you haven't had the opportunity to do a training session with yet.

    Im gonna hafta say a boxing clinic Frank Trejo put on at Jeff Blay's camp. It made me more interested in sparring instead of just going thru the motions of it (or finding ways to avoid it all together).

    I don't think there's anyone Id like to see the most...but I certaintly wouldn't turn down any opportunities to meet and learn from anyone

    My instructor has been studying with Huk for 20 years or so.

    I've done a few seminars and privates with Mr. Planas ... Each time, I learn a lot. But, I still haven't gone fishing with him yet. (We have traded fish tales though )

    At the Revere Internationals in 2003, I was corrected by Frank Trejo. As a Green belt on that Sunday, I also worked with Mr. Valez, Mr. White & Mr. Whitson (I think).

    After that day of seminars, I decided to not persue studying with other instructors (excluding Mr. Hogan & Mr. Planas) until I have progressed a bit further in my studies. At this point, I don't know what I don't know ... and some of the ideas introduced in Revere were in conflict with what I was learning. I really don't need any help getting confused.

    Here's hoping Mr. Planas lives a long and healthy life, so that I can continue to work with him.

    Outside of my instructor and Al Tracy, the person that has had the most profound influence on my training is Dr. Roger Greene. Followed closely by Ted Sumner and Ray Arquilla.

    I would have to say Dave Hebler for bringing Kenpo to Hillsboro. If it wasn't for him I'd prob be doing TKD or Ernie Rays. I was in one class with him before he retired. Wish I knew about Kenpo and that Mr. Hebler was there when I firsted moved to Or in 98'.

    Most action would be with Mr. Sepulveda 2 seminars, was uke for the second. You really do learn more when you feel it
    This is how I wear my Kenpo suit. Still trying to learn how to put it on and it's a little wrinkled, but it is starting to feel pretty good on me.

    Default Re: Who

    People I've met and trained with..either by being their official 'student' or just at seminars, camps...etc.

    Mr. Parker, met him when I was young....went to a seminar. It was great! Got me hooked.

    Mr. Roger W. Taylor, 3rd Dan, student of Mr. Paul Mills, Mr. Tabatabai and Mr. Bruce Tomson (in reverse chronological order). He's the first man to take me on as a student in Kenpo........I'm a better person because I've known him, and a MUCH better martial artist! He was really a big inspiration to me.

    Mr. Paul Mills, 10th Dan; President of the AKKI. Inspirational in every way! Not only getting the AKKI ball rolling and keeping it going strong, but inspiring and equiping Mr. Taylor...who handed the flame to me. IF you've not met him, DO.

    Mr. John Connolly. A powerful martial artist, generous, extremely well informed and WELL trained in Kenpo!! Hard to find a nicer guy!

    Mr. Alan Jacob. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, SKILLED and an all around good person. Can get you really fired up for Kenpo, even over the phone.

    People I've not met, but would like to:
    Mr. Pick. Mr. LaBounty. Mr. Wedlake. Mr. Trejo, Mr. Chapel.
    ...all Very different views of Kenpo....but they sound so very interesting to me.

    I would love to train with:

    SGM Ed Parker Sr. and Elvis. God bless their soul's

    In no particular order I want to work with

    Mr. Ed Parker Jr, Mr. Huk Planas, Mr. Zach Whitson, Mr. Ron "Doc" Chapél.

    I haven't really trained with many seniors. I have been to two of George Dillman seminars. The lineage I was under before wasn't too supportive of some seniors. The lineage I have aligned myself with under Mr. Rob Broad in Mr. Steve Arsenault's East Coast Kenpo System is much more beneficial.

    Wow! Great Question. I have been very fortunate that I have had the opportunity to take classes or seminars with a some great Kenpo Senior Instructors. I feel that they all have had an effect on how I practice & view the techs or forms I know.

    I think the most important thing to do, during these seminars is to keep an open mind to another instructor's view, there is so much to learn in Kenpo and no one person has all the answers! Some of the instructors I've trained with... in no particular order.

    Mr. Bob Liles, Ms. Dian Tanaka, Mr. Larry Tatum, Mr. Tom Kelly, Mr. Joe Palanzo, Mr. Frank Trejo, Mr. Dave Hebler, Mr. Rainer Schulte, Mr. Huk Planas, Mr. Gil Velez, Mr. Sean Kelley and the infamous Mr. Clyde T. O'Briant.

    Some great instructors that I've taken some classes with ...may not be seniors but just wonderful fountains of Kenpo knowledge and history. Mr. Juan Serrano, Dr. Robert Sprando, Mr. Lee Epperson and Mr. Edmund Parker, Jr.

    Seems like there should be a few more women on this list!

    Peace,

    Donna
