THE BLACK DRAGON CLANDESTINE COMBATIVES INSTITUTE OF THE DRAGON KENPO KARATE CONSORTIUM WELCOME IT'S NEWEST MEMBERS:

                             Is DK A Form Of AK?

Now, let us consider the Ed. Hutchison Dragon Kenpo Karate System:

1.
The parallelism of disassociation within both the AK and DK systems concerning choices in tracing each system’s lineage to a specific grandmaster or grandmasters reveal sadly the distance and disrespect of association between these individual camps themselves.
2. The American Kenpo rank and file, typically does not acknowledge Dragon Kenpo Karate as an equal street combative style based upon Grandmaster Ed. Parker’s basic adaptive principle of Tailoring, which is one of many others within their own!
3. Many Dragon Kenpo Stylists have been blinded and delusioned by this same lineage question.
4.Fact is, yes, The Ed. Hutchison Dragon Kenpo System is indeed a part of the Ed. Parker Kenpo Lineage. However, it is not fact that the Ed. Hutchison Dragon Kenpo System is an offshoot of Ed. Parker American Kenpo.
5. Nor was it in any way, or fashion, intended to be a form of the American Kenpo System.
6. Thus, since the Dragon Kenpo system is in fact based upon the Ed. Parker Tailoring Principle; it does give the DK Instructor and Master borrowing, not stealing rights within the basic concepts and methods of the American Kenpo System as Kenpo Instruction Tools.
7. This understanding has mislead many DK Instructors into believing that they were and are teaching some raw form of the Ed. Parker American Kenpo System. Several have even gone as far as including the whole AK 16 Technique teaching method or parts of it in their respective DK Programs!
8. Other’s still have included the AK short and long forms as part of their respective DK programs.
9. This is in fact, out right stealing of the American Kenpo Systems’ core techniques, principles, and methods!
10. Therefore, these Dragon Kenpo Programs are neither teaching Ed. Hutchison Dragon Kenpo Karate, nor Ed. Parker American Kenpo Karate. This is also not saying that Forms, or Kata cannot be developed by the Dragon Kenpo Instructor and Master specifically for improving their respective student’s Street Combative Execution and Application Skills. Yet, these forms need only be considered supplemental strength and motion developmental aides, within the DK Programs and not Core defensive techniques of the art.

AMITOUFO!
