    As I stated on KenpoNet, I had the opportunity of meeting with him back in Las Vegas last June. His passion for the arts were undeniable, and he had fun locking me into a pretzel.

    He will be missed for years to come....


    Full Salute,

    Very sad day indeed, I had the pleasure of talking to Mr.German last June in Vegas. I also had the pleasure of watching him tie Jamie Seabrook and Matt Trejo in a knot, he will be truly missed, Full Salute.

    A sad day indeed. His loss will be mourned.

    He was an interesting man with a lot to say.

    His loss will be felt for a long time.

    Tonight after I finished teaching Kenpo, Chantel told me that a package had arrived from Baltimore. I opened it up and it was a poster that Lee Epperson had sent me for the 2006 LTKKA World Kenpo Championships. It took a whole new meaning when I saw the picture of David German listed in the upper right corner as a guest instructor.

    Now, more than ever, it is an honour to have my picture and name on the same poster as his.


    Full Kenpo Salute.

    I've been so far removed from the MA I did not know of GM German's passing until today. I am very sorry for not ever having the opportunity to train with him.
