    Well, last night was our first get together. I can't speak for everyone but I will say from my perspective that it was one rocking great time with some great guys. We were able to cover the first 4 techniques of the system on a body. Not really any breaks, just hitting each other. Everyone there was helping one another. There was some joking, laughing, & a lot of sweating.

    A special thanks to Mr. Joe Doyle coming from Mentor to take part of the class. Also, thanks to Mr. Al Babinec from Strongsville came to show some support for the class as well. To Mr. Bob Fields, I know you had a great & it was nice to see you back on the mats after all these years. We'll knock the rust off little by little. Mr. Jim L., I'm very excited that you had the opportunity to work with other individuals with high skill level. Very happy to see you made the time to work with a great bunch of guys. Terry Ward, as always, a pleasure to work with you, break a sweat like the old days, we had a good time hitting each other again. Larry Splain & Pat Tisdale, you guys really shocked me last night. Left me kinda speechless when you entered the building. Thanks guys for supporting the class.

    After we covered delayed sword - deflecting hammer, Mr. Doyle gave a short 40-45 minute class on power, power, & more power. Also, a short, brief, action packed yellow belt work out. It was nice to go back through the yellow to apply a lot of action. Thanks for taking the time to come.


    The next class will be scheduled for Nov. 6th. I hope more people can make the class. It was again without a doubt a fantastic class.
    Salute,
    Jason Farnsworth

    p.s. A picture of the group will be added before the weekend is over.

    I'm going to provide a link for anyone who wants to see the photo of the individuals who came to this first class. I hope to see more people take part in this as the time goes on. Many thanks to those who took time out of their schedules to take part in this class.

    I took a couple of weeks off from promoting this class. I actually do (sorta) have a life outside of kenpo. At least I think so.


    We are now 3 weeks away from the next session. Those who attended had a great time training together. I'd love for this class to grow & bring some unity back to our kenpo community.
    Remember, we will be covering the sets as a warm up, hitting the techniques starting with deflecting hammer & moving forward down the charts. Finishing with some flow drills & little talk afterwards amongst everybody there. It's just a great time getting to know one another as well as helping each other out training in kenpo.

    Feel free to contact me for more info.
    Salute,
    Jason Farnsworth

    The class went great. Everyone again, had a great time. We actually had our first woman in the class. She loved getting back on the mat again. That is what this class is all about.

    Mark your calendars. Thursday Jan. 8, will be the next class in this series. We will be finishing the last 3 yellows, moving onto the orange. We'll see how far we get by the amount of people who attend. I look forward to the new year & this class growing little by little.

    Happy holidays all.
    Jason

    Just a reminder that we are just about a week away from the next session. I'm looking forward to a great year putting this special class on & bringing together some kenpoists to just train together.

    Next class will be on Jan. 8th.

    Feb. 5 is going to be the next class. No matter what i'm not going to let this class die out. I want to see this grow with as many kenpoists as we can get together. To come and train without the over sight of ego, or my instructor is better than yours thing. If you're reading this & can make it, we would all love to have you there to train with the rest of us. Supposed to be some women there again.

    Thumbs up Re: Central, North-Central, & Northern Ohio Kenpoists!

    My friend Jason,

    You can bet I will continue to be at your Monday night sessions.

    I am hoping to train with Mr. Hysell on Thursday. If this does not happen, perhaps you will see me as a surprise quest on Thursday...

    Everyone who lives in the central Ohio area that call themselves Parker Kenpoist should take Jason up on his offer. Get to his place and train. The economy is still getting weaker and you may one day need your training for real. I know of no other place in central Ohio where your needs can be met better then at Jason's, for the moment. Get there if you can. If you cannot, but are interested, contact Jason or me and let us know what you would like to do.

    Sincerely,

    KenpoCoach
    "Rank is no good unless itís respected." Quoted from Mr. Richard Planas.

    If your traveling through the Central Ohio (Mount Vernon) area and would like to meet with KenpoCoach either for some lively one on one discussions or for some "On the mat" Kenpo training please send an email to: Lcsplain@embarqmail.com and I'll see if I can make that happen.
