Leo's original plan was to have the "color coded" version. However, the cost per book was extremely high and it was found to be more cost effective to publish them in black & white.
As for his relationship with Skip, I am not sure if he is actively training with him like he once was. I have strong ties to Leo. He was like a 2nd father to me growing up and took me under his wing(you see I am Leo's 1st EPAK black belt)before I began training with Mr. Wedlake. I drop in from time to time at his place and teach a class. From speaking with him it didn't sound as if he was, but you can contact him directly through his websitehttp://lacerteskenpo.com/home.html
if you would like ask him yourself.
Sincerely Yours in Kenpo,
L. Soares, Kenpo-Head Instructor
Director of Training
