Message I get the impression you are passionate about art. I know of a Nebraska artist who has recently given up teaching for her passion to make a living as a professional artist. I thought maybe you would appreciate her conservative message. If anything it could be one more vote!

~ Thanks and enjoy!

Message I am trying to find a direction. I have been a martial artist for over 25 years. I have studied a lot of different systems. I am a 2nd degree black belt in TKD (when I was 19) I owned my own school in Georgia for 4 years. Currently, I am a military instructor at Ft. Wood, Missouri and a commissioned deputy sheriff were I teach CQB, defensive tactics, expandable baton, straight baton, PR-24, pepper spray, firearms etc.

Here's my problem, for the past 5 years, I have been studying Kenpo, I have been through a gambit of school changing such as restructuring of belt rank when I was a 2nd brown that took me to a red w/black stripe and a rotating curriculum. This school finally decided to go to a full MMA curriculum and not so much Kenpo. I was on black belt material when this occurred.

I left when another instructor opened his school. This instructor required I start as a 3rd brown, I did and for the past 2 years I have been training. I was going through my pretest for black when another told I that I was being strung along because I was good revenue. I approached my instructor and ask my instructor about this and about the rumor that he had no intention of having me pass rank, after a long conversation I found out it was true. So I left the school 3 weeks before my Black Belt test.

So I am trying to decide on what I want to do. I know it is not about the rank or color of the belt, but after a lot of sweat hard work and money, it would be nice to have the recognition. The only options I have is to go to another kenpo school in town and restart from the beginning (another 4-5 years) or accept my status as it is now and not be able to associate myself with Kenpo at a higher level.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you,
Tony C.

Message I read some of your poems, and agree with your advisor that it would have been ill advised to have "properly" written them.

Well done. I hope you keep writing.

Message Professor/Hanshi Geary,

Thank you for a very informative and exciting website! You are extremely educated in the the Arts. I practice/teach Kempo (both Chinese and Kosho-Ryu) and found your history of James Mitose and Kempo right on. I have always wanted to look at the trial transcripts; so thank you very much for making them accessible. Have you ever met Hanshi Bruce Juchnick or attended the Gathering of Masters that he host? If you are to attend, I would be honored to meet you sir. Again thank you for your insight and preserving the Art of Kempo!
