42 Years of Active Training and Teaching Kenpo

My Personal Martial Arts Time Line:

October 1976 was promoted to Black belt by John Cochran in Denver, Colorado at the Denver Kenpo Karate Academy.

1976 opened my first Kenpo Studio in Salisbary , Maryland.

1986  Inducted into the book Who's Who in American Martial Arts.

I Sold Three Tracy's Karate Franchises in the Denver Area cira 1990.

2011 Inducted into the International Kenpo Hall Of Fame in Las Vegas, Nv.

2015 Promoted to 9th degree Black Belt by Al Tracy, Ted Sumner and Pat Tracy

2018 Still actively teaching the Tracy System of Kenpo to a few students.

At this point in time in my life my focus is on Practical Self Defense.

Head of the United Kenpo ~  Arnis Ass.  formed in 1988.  

Something you might consider is that to date as of Dec. 2017 I have only promoted 13 students to Black


An important note:  Though I taught the classical Tracy Kenpo System under GM Al Tracy's watchful eye, my personal skills that I developed up to Black Belt  were a function  of the Tomas Connor  Tra Co International Kenpo System that integrated Western Boxing and Kick Boxing combinations coupled with the flow one develops though his Chinese based Forms.  Also Tomas Connor was the embodiment of a Master of Martial Arts.  He cared about his health and therefore kept his body in great shape.   His students followed along his path and stayed in good physical condition because of his persona.  I personally do 100 sit ups each and every night and I am presently 65 years of age.  Still,  I respectifully honor Master Tomas  Connor by having a photo of him hanging in my studio.
