Response to Just to clarify
Not even close. And everyone always knew my real name. It was common knowledge. In fact when I switched to the other name I announced I was going to do it. And It did not go like that at all Mike. I might have said something about one person. Bleecker started the entire thing and that is fact. He also was accused of sending e mails of serious concern to another. The other thing is that I don't and no school I ever went to taught the "pledges"..The pledges are just a bunch of nonsense made up to make things sound important.
Bleecker was abusive to me and inconsiderate.
The other thing is that I am not "one of your own".
And it was not one black belt to another..
Now as far as the video of Bleecker. You know I don't dissect people's videos. I have said that.
And it is never important because people that do that usually don't understand root concepts. Now the trend based on human nature would be for a person who had an argument with another to loose objectivity. So I am in that position. But you see one thing. I an honest and objective in karate so I won't let anger jade my opinion.
***Tom Bleecker shows a higher command of integration and ability than 95% of the people I have seen in American Kenpo. He is actually very mature in his movement. He is better than I thought he would be. I see mechanics differently but that is personal. So what I saw was very solid and very good. But I have no idea what kind of fighter he is and since he SNITCHED and did other things so I would have concern.***
So there you have it...
But as far as contributions to the martial arts I just cannot see it because to me contributions have to be within the dynamics of the art.
