Mr. Parker said: Some people just don’t get it.
Once at the IKC I had the pleasure of talking to Mr. Parker in his office, it was my birthday and I was so nervous.
Just thinking wow I get to talk to (The Man) himself, and yes he was THE MAN.
Mr. Parker was a great man and when he came into a room you felt it, no not just saw him you felt his presents.
That day I had that conversation with him he said “I not only teach you Kenpo and to defend yourself, but hopefully I teach students to be good people”.
That day I got it!
I feel I have been fortunate to be with many great Kenpo martial artists, but more importantly they are good people.
You don’t see very many other arts that when you show up at their studio you are so nicely received, I have been to kenpo studios in other countries and states and within minutes you feel welcomed almost like you have known them forever, well I think Mr. Parker did what he said he wanted to do.
We are not just Kenpoist we are family, we will back you up, help you out, and STAND BY YOU.
That is KENPO to me.
Hope you enjoy:
