Congrats to Our New Yellow Belts: Ernie & Itzi!

Ernie and Itzy Yellow Belt PromotionPlease join us in congratulating Ernie & Itzi on their promotion to yellow belt this evening.

Ernie is 72 years old and the oldest student ever to earn a yellow belt from me! Ernie is a very hard worker who shows up 4 days a week to train and a great student.

Itzi is a very talented and enthusiastic 12 year old who excels at Kenpo. It’s a joy to have her in the studio.

Congratulations again to our new yellow belts! You earned it!

Get To Know Professor Ed Downey

KT - 0668.jpg

Professor Ed Downey is teaching a seminar at Kellogg’s American Kenpo Karate tomorrow, August 18th. We hope to see you there!

Get to know this great Kenpoist, 8th degree black belt, & president of the European Kenpo Karate Assocation before then by listening to this excellent interview with him on The Bo Luellen Show (March 2015).

In this interview, Mr. Downey discusses his beginnings in martial arts and shares his thoughts on Kenpo in Ireland, the popularity of MMA, bullying & kids, and more!

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the interview where Mr. Downey talks about doing seminars with Ed Parker, Sr.:

“[FGM Ed Parker would teach] if someone is a grappler this is what you would do. If someone is a kicker this is what you would do. He already had these solutions. …His attitude was he would go to what would make grappling effective, what makes kickers effective. I don’t think he would have needed to become a grappler …or to become an excessively high kicker. I think he had the ability to analyze the essence of the threat or the tactics of the martial art and to create scenarios that would [create] the solution.”
