History of American Kenpo Karate
What I'm looking for is the real lineage of AKK pre Ed Parker. Who Has what links? Who can point me in what direction? Where did James Mitose really learn his kenpo style from? I understand that a certain amount of the history was inflated by Mitose to make his style look good in the eyes of Japanese who were big on tradition/age. I consider this one of the most important steps in cleansing modern American MA culture of bullshido/mcdojos, as EP is often called the "Father of American Karate", and probably rightly so. But alot of the BS in American MA schools can probably be traced back to the distorted history of the style he created.
