In psychology, its possible to be a student of Freud, albeit only of his teachings. So, I am a student of Ed Parker, through his teachings, I have never trained directly with him.
I study what he taught and how he moved through the videos on YouTube, etc and in his books, and also through those people who were privileged enough to know him and train with him.
I am a student of Ed Parkers but I was never Ed Parkers student.
Yours in Kenpo
