Having just returned from the Jersey Kenpo Workshops hosted by Mr Richard Matthews of Kenpoworks, I feel the need to share my experience of the event and let everyone know what they missed.
There was a whole day spent sharing knowledge, experiences, points of view, the covering a wide variety of Kenpo concepts and principles, from some great Kenpo instructors. All taking place in Mr Roy MacDonalds academy at the historic Forte Regent on the island of Jersey.
The instructors for this event were Mr Roy MacDonald 9th degree, Ms Jaki McVicar 8th degree, Mr Richard Matthews 7th degree, Mr Matt Snell 6th degree, Mr Mervyn Ormand 6th degree and Mr Ray Molloy 3rd degree. Each instructor shared their Kenpo with a great bunch of instructors and students from around the global. There were people from Berlin, Copenhaguen, Jersey, Guernsay and the UK. It was a great mix of belt levels and experience with everyone working together on the information presented. There was a buzz in the room in each workshop, with a friendly atmosphere, no politics, no egos, just Kenpo.
It was great to see some up and coming Kenpo martial artists that will be the future of our art. I really look forwards to meeting these people again at future events.
