Any Tum Pai people out there?
« on: November 24, 2003, 11:59:23 AM »
We're still looking for a Tum Pai black belt to moderate this forum.  It would be nice to have some discussions on this branch of the Kajukenbo family.

Not a BB yet but I will be testing for Brown this coming weekend.  I like to think I have a pretty good grasp on the concept of Tum Pai.  Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.  My Sifu trained under John Loren for many years.

Guardian,

First off, good luck on your test this weekend.  Is Sifu Scott Dinger your Sifu?  I know he is holding some tests this weekend and was just curious.  I have been working out with his Sambo class lately.

Thank you.  My instructor is Sifu Steve Larson.  He is a 5th Deg. BB under Prof. Bob Heuer.  How do like sambo?  I would love to do some training in that.

Sambo is fun, but alot of work.  I am pretty used to that from my Kajukenbo training though.  It has already helped my ground skills alot.  I am still not that great at Sambo, but the Sambo combined with my other training has impoved my general ground skills.  Sifu Scott Dinger teaches it in Portland, OR.  I am sure that you would be welcome to come and check it out.  If you are interested and are near enough to make it, let me know and I will get the contact info to you.

My younger brother just moved to Portland from Vancouver and would like to start training.  If he doesn't have a kajukenbo school nearby Sambo would be great.   That's too far for me to go to train though.

Guardian,

If he is in Portland, then there is plenty of Kajukenbo around.  Message me or call me and I will provide any information about the various teachers here in Portland.  My phone number is (503) 381-2327.

Professor Heuer would be a great person to moderate this section or perhaps Sifu Larson. Can one of you Longview students ask?

There are actually two branchs of Tum Pai, Kajukenbo Tum Pai and Northern Tum Pai.

Sifu Loren heads the Northern Tum Pai branch.

I'm not sure who heads Kajukenbo Tum Pai, I think it is Sifu Doug Baily or Sifu Bob Heuer.
