Who are some of the top 3rd gen instructors from SGM Parker? Have any of the seniors selected protégés or successors to carry on their knowledge to future generations?

Who has learned what you have to teach correctly and is the best qualified to pass your knowledge down to the next generation? I understand that the seniors have trained hundreds if not more qualified instructors but who are the very best (most skilled & knowledgeable) instructors to look to in the future?

Also if you have taught any secret version of Kenpo to anyone, like some elite version of the system who have you taught it too?

If you put this information out now, Yes you may hurt the feelings of some of your students who would like to think they are your very top guys, but you will save future generations from so many false protégés or at least make it easier to select instructors for my grandchildren!

I post this question publicly but I suspect I will have to contact each of the seniors and ask them directly and I am sure the answers for some will be I have arranged it its all in the will its in a future book its on a DVD that will be made public it is OK if I do not get the exact answer I am not that important but I just hope that it is not being taken lightly

Your question is worthy of an answer, but you probably won't get one. Way too much stock is placed in the monetary aspects for an instructor to jeopardize if they related their true feeling of what you ask.

I'm a 2nd Gen with a few Black Belts, and I'm currently working with some great students who received their Black Belt from someone else so I can't take credit for all of their knowledge. That being said, the ones who train with me have an explempary understanding of what I teach, and they refine my teaching even further. The best thing about that is, I get their feedback of what they've learned, interpreted, and teach. So far, it's working rather well. Just last week I was in a discussion concerning the gun techniques, and intention of the attack, something I hadn't really put much thought into to be honest. Epiphanies were the rule of the day, and I can honestly say "what I learned" after that conversation.

Oh, and yes, I've taught the "secret" version of Kenpo LOL.

Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

Training is the secret, hard work and keeping at it 24/7...

If it is Kenpo or muscle building, the continual pursuit of practice, train and keep in shape... Diet is important also...

Read as much as you can about all aspects of MA... Like food, eat a well rounded diet...

Back to basics is a good rule IMHO...

There are many very good instructors in all generations, seek and you shall find...

Regards

Kenpo does have secrets in the sense that within the Forms, Self-Defense Techniques and other parts of the curriculum is an enormous treasure of very useful knowledge that often remains hidden from the people who are too focused on the outer shell or are too in a hurry to pay attention to details.

It really takes both an excellent Kenpo instructor and a determined Kenpo student to take the time to revisit the previously learned material. If a kenpo student asks a question that can be answered by previously learned material in the curriculum, it should be revisited and the light shined on the part that evaded the students awareness the first time around.

Some people will never get it even if they have a great teacher because they are lazy or they lack the inquisitive mind so they start Kenpo and study for a few years and all they have is the vaguest notions of some of the material that was spoon fed to them.

When they spar it is apparent that they have not connected the dots because they spar like poorly trained kick boxers, which is all they can do to avoid getting banged up but they just dont draw from the huge kenpo well of information that is available because they never found it.

For some the process of taking useful insights from the kenpo curriculum and ingraining them into their personal physical capabilities is a fun and extremely rewarding process. For others the process goes only as far as it takes to meet the minimal standards that some instructors allow for the next belt. For some unfortunate folks that means they will learn it to the point of memorizing a sequence of motions they can perform against one pathetic attack. That is as far as that students skill will ever go because that is as much work as that student was willing to do. Maybe some students think that if they just accumulate enough memorized sequences that their ability will somehow grow in proportion. Wrong!


Physical capability with Kenpo will require many hours of sweat so dont forget to hydrate. It will require some good training partners that can give you honest feedback and honest attacks and later down the line honest counterattacks. You will probably get a bloody nose from time to time, maybe even a few black eyes. If you leave yourself open to many times you may go home that night with a feeling that you got hit by a truck. Rest assured that the process may be at times uncomfortable but it produces capabilities that are not just in your imagination.


It personally annoys me to listen to an instructor harp about what is in fact true but not be able to execute the knowledge that his brain has. It means that he or she had a good teacher but was unwilling to transform the knowledge passed to him or her into physical capabilities either that or they just let the skill decay like a tooth covered in sugar.

I am putting together a packet to submit for approval to attend a training course at Fort Huachuca AZ. I should have everything I need for the packet in the next two months, so roughly four months from now, I may have a set date to attend My hope is that I have down time at some point during the course to pay you a visit.
