    Sumdumguy,

    Your link simply leads to Terry Taylor's Youtube channel. I am not sure what your question pertains to...

    I see, the issue is that he calls himself Grandmaster.

    You know that's so common in Kenpo, I don't even pay attention to it anymore!

    Agreed, there is so much red out there on belts now that you just kind of glance over it and then move on.

    It is almost makes you feel like just wearing a black belt with no red on it and let the wear and tear on the belt speak for itself.

    You should be ashamed. You know I can't get that time back and I'm old.

    Took another look myself. I noticed that some of the videos have 'KemTaeDo Kenpo' in the header. So I guess the dude is the founder of a variant style with some Taekwondo influence, that's why he feels entitled to call himself 'grandmaster'.

    Yea, I was thinking about that...

    KemTaeDO

    The Way of Kem Tae... Tae is Korean reference to foot... but Kem... I know Ken is Japanese for fist so KenTaeDo would be a mix of the way of the Japanese fist and Korean foot... but I down't know what Kem is....

    Almost like he was making a variation of TangSooDo which is the way of the Chinese fist.

    Ohhh no, between the lack of alignment, terrible footwork, bad timing, an nonreactive Uke with unrealistic attacks... it just kinda blows my mind and makes me wat to drive out there and tell him.. dude... you're killing me with this....
