The reach of Tum Pai?
« on: May 31, 2003, 02:14:58 PM »
this is just a simple question: where is your school?  I am very interesting in knowing exactly how far Tum Pai stretches these days.  If you could please leave a state and/or city it would be nice.

I've trained in Tum Pai for the last 2 years. My school is located in The Dalles, Or. We also have another school in Hood River Or. I know there are also Tum Pai Schools in Vancouver and Portland. Anyway, if you know of any Tum Pai schools near Ft. Worth TX let me know.

Hm, it seems tum pai only exists in the northwest. I know there are some schools in arizona some where, but other than that I've yet to hear of any Tum Pai schools outside of this area

Well, I am not sure of schools anywhere other than the Northwest.  I know there is a school in Vancouver, and Portland.  I am in Portland under Emperado's Method now, I was under Chu'an Fa before.  The Tum Pai teacher here in Portland is Sifu Scott Dinger.  He is a very good person, and I have heard many great things about him as a teacher.

Sigung Jon Loren, the originator of Tum Pai, should be able to help you further in your search of Tum Pai schools.  His address is:  Sigung Jon Loren, Northern Tum Pai Association, P.O Box 124, Brookings, OR  97415.

Write to him and I am sure he would be happy to help you with any requested information.

Tum Pai was originated here in Kelso, Wa.  Explaining why it only in the NW.  It is currently moving down the W. coast though.  There are not any schools in the Texas area yet.

I am in Vancouver Washington.  Tum Pai is primarily in the Northwest.  This is true.  I have trained in Battle Ground and currently train in Vancouver.  Jking, where do you train?

I have heard of Kajukenbo schools in AZ getting instruction from Professor Loren but I have yet to hear of any schools established outside Oregon and Washington yet.
