On The Edge Radio Show
« on: January 09, 2004, 03:22:33 PM »
Datu Kelly Worden hosts this interesting show that covers a broad spectrum of the martial arts. Go to http://www.kellyworden.com/home/pastshows.html for some of his past shows.
One of my favorites is an interview with Mr. Bob Anderson who studied Chinese Kempo from Professor Walter Godin and Kajukenbo from Sifu Allen Rayes.

Just found out from Datu Kelly that this week's show features Jim Keating. Knife training, logic, and methodology will be discussed. Additionally Jim will share key points as to why knife concepts have bridged the generations and maintained a strong developmental interest including intergration of different cultural influences.
Unfortunately, the "On The Edge" web radio communication team is in Las Vegas this week. However, those in the Tacoma and Western Washington area can tune into KLAY 1180 A.M. on Saturday morning at 10:00 A.M. The rest of us will have to wait till the middle of next week when we can listen to it via the Internet.

Leo Fong is "ON THE EDGE" Saturday Jan 31st!
« Reply #2 on: January 31, 2004, 01:03:13 AM »
I just ran across the following:

This show is going to shake up a great deal of History!
Leo Fong is an original student of Bruce Lee's and unless you have been in a underground shelter for the last 20 years,,, you would recognize his name as the friend and training partner who wrote several of Bruce Lee's books. Having been a close advocate of Jeet Kune Do since it's inception, Leo will share infomation that will not make a lot of JKD people very happy,,, at least those who have attempted to mimic the "Little Dragon ", or carved his teachings into stone. Those who have done just that really " Missed the Boat ," progression and self discovery were the real truth's that Bruce Lee tried to share with the world,,, those bound by his words, methods, and training regime, have mis-interpreted the logic of freedom of expression,,,
With so much to discuss this show will move quickly, keep in mind Leo Fong also trained with Professor Presas in the Philippines as well as here in the U.S., he has intergrated his JKD with Modern Arnis and also the methods of Angel Cabales' Serrada Eskrima ,,, that's a pretty strong lineage, Leo has strong opinions and he is not afraid to speak his truth, ,, so get ready for...
" ON THE EDGE!!"

These people need to bo shook up a bit.  They need to be reminded what JKD is all about.  I think Bruce Lee would be proud of what Mr. Fong is doing.

I agree with you. However, a lot of the issues discussed apply to more than just the JKD community.

It's great that Leo Fong and Kelly Worden, both highly experienced martial artists, touched upon how the martial arts helped to make them better people. "It (martial arts) creates a more compassionate man, it's a real weird deal brother."

Sifu Tyrrell,

I also noticed the possible discrepancy but deferred to the info listed on Sigung Anderson's webpage. It may also be a web designer's mistake. I just sent him an email asking for clarification. I'll relay the info as soon as I hear back.

On that same webpage, I also noticed that he listed Prof Godin's art as Chinese KeNpo (Prof changed it to Chinese KeMpo decades ago). A Sigung on the Cafe emailed me privately saying he knew Anderson from way back. So I'm sure he is very old school.

Respectfully,  
Andrew

Sigung Anderson said the information regarding GM Reyes will be changed. I don't know about the details of his experience with GM Reyes. I do know that he started in the martial arts as a child over 40 years ago, received a black belt from Prof Godin (big accomplishment), graduated with honors from the highly acclaimed Executive Security International and is a big name in executive protection. In his radio interview found at http://www.kellyworden.com/home/pastshows.html , you can hear him talk about protecting some of the most famous and richest people in the world.

The last family tree I have is 1999, and he's not listed as one of Prof. Godin's black belts either.  Perhaps someone could check the 2003 family tree.

I don't think I'm listed in either one and I have black belt certificates going back to the nineties. Please look under Prof Godin and then Prof Buell to see if I am hidden somewhere in one of those branches. Just curious. Thanks, Andrew

Being off of the tree doesn't mean too much.  Your instructor is the one that has to put you there.  If the instructor doesn't...that doesn't make you any less a black belt.  I think you can send a copy of your certificate to Professor Gelinas and that will also get you on the tree.  I may be mistaken though.

Hi Andrew,
I have the 2003 tree, but could not find your name under the branch you described.

Thanks Don, I appreciate you checking.

Also, someone wrote me privately and said:
"Of course, being of Walter Godin's lineage with all the "bad press" that poor Master had over the years I could see why "Bob" would stick to himself. Bob is the epitome of the Roosevelt Motto of "Walk softly but carry a big stick". There was a time that "Bob" could knock a pimple off a bugs butt from a hundred yards with any hand gun you could hand him. I know of "Bob". He is really very good with the sticks. Legs no, not bad but not that great. Interesting set of self defense techniques."

Bob Anderson also holds the Professional Kickboxing Association record for fastest knockout. (That's the same PKA that made Bill "Superfoot" Wallace famous.) A guy wanted him so bad, charged him and got knocked out with Bob's hard right within 5 seconds of the first round. Is it really 5 seconds or do you also count the 10 seconds it took the referee to count?  ;D

My excuse of not being on the tree is that Professor Martin Buell prefers to keep to himself. Folks in Hawaii can corroborate this. Chances are, he does not submit the names of black belts to anyone outside of his organization. I'll probably look into getting my info and those of my students added.

Mahalo,
Andrew

Andrew,

Although Don beat me to the punch, Prof. Buell is listed
with his 17 black belts.
