Apologies for so many parts

My apologies for so many parts. Evidently the forum won't take that large of a post without breaking it down into parts. Ryan should have the whole think posted on the main page soon. It has been sent to him.

Thanks, and look forward to seeing everyone in September in Evanston.

Re: Apologies for so many parts

Wow!!! A camp in Evanston? Man I am so there if I can make it!!!! I better start working some overtime for vacation time so I have enough! Awesome camp this year!! I learned tons and I can't wait to start working it on some bodies. Special thanks for Mr. Hickey and Mr. O'Reily for teaching the knife set!! You guys made it really easy to do and understand and they way you broke it down and let us work on it was way cool. This is, of course, with no offense towards Mr. Thompson, who I believe to be the absolute best forms instructor on the planet!!

Hoping to see a lot fo you guys in Evanston!! Take care and heal up!


Re: Apologies for so many parts

Bruce, thanks for the plugs and for the recap. I will get this on the home page shortly!

Re: Re: 3rd part of 3 parts of Recap of 08 Camp

It's been so hard to tell myself that I wouldn't be able to make it to this camp. I read up on the camp recaps and kick myself over and over in the teeth (I am somewhat flexible lol) for not saying 'Forget it, i'm heading out'.

Definately looking forward to Septembers camp in *gasp* Evanston!

Many Thanks

After being away from the AKKI for nearly four years, this was my first time to the Vegas camp; not only was I blown away at the quality of instruction given, but at the camaraderie that I experienced. I've met some great people, hopefully made some new friends, and am grateful to be welcomed back into the AKKI family. A great "thank you" to Mr. Mills, the board of directors, each instructor at the camp, and especially to Mr. Brumby.

Re: Recap of March 08 AKKI Kenpo Camp

Great write-up Mr. Smith! This camp was awesome all the way around and the Black Belt test was inspiring! Actually, it was SCARY!
Jay, it great to see you at a camp. I overheard a couple of people saying you "moved well". Good to have you back!
I would also like to congratulate Matt Smith for getting his Brown Belt and his penmanship, lol (he won the "Pit-viper" knife).
"Head Instructor Lee" rocked on the Black Belt test. Congrats, Mr. Bowgren!
I was happy to see Mr. Brumby and Mr. Greg Hilderbrand do a seminar. Even though, I've trained with both of these great instructors previously, I was blown away.
They definitely give credence to Mr. Parker's saying, "I taught you everything you know-not everything I know"!
I can't wait to do it all over again!
