It was a great time training in Vegas.
Kennedy is great. I have trained jujitsu for 20 years and rarely do you see an individual who has a complete understanding of the big picture like Sifu Kennedy.
Goldberg, Dixon, great stuff.
My friend Vince. Wow! can that MFer move.
Jerry "The Twister" Ouch!

Sifu Tim and everyone that attended and taught, I have one thing to say... Thank You... The seminar was awesome.
Sifu Loyd, Sifu Richie, Sifu Jim.... That was just the grappling crew... All the material was awesome, and they all did things different enough to show their way, but it all integrated together perfect... Richie and Jim did an awesome tag team and fed off of each others material like they had been doing it for years. Sifu Loyd showed the old school JuJitsu I love to see... Also Sifu Jerry did a great job with his entries into JuJitsu takedowns and restraints... Great Job!!
Sifu Vince Raimondi did an awesome job in the footwork session. Great drills, and info to improve your movement...
Then my Texas brothers Sifu Mike Goldberg and Sifu Willie Wilson did their things Mike showed some great trapping, and Willie showed how to make things hurt on the inside range. The Yoga Saturday morning was a little tough, but I think it was the brotherhood Friday night that was the real culprit.. 8)
Then Sifu Bob Bremer laid down the hammer on us.. :shock: We learned the hammer principle from probably the best living source available, Sifu Bob Bremer. Just hanging out and talking over a frosty one with Sifu Bremer and his lovely wife, Sifu Sewell, and all the others made the whole trip worthwhile, but the knowledge put it all over the top.
Sifu Jeremy showed us how to crack the whip with our kicks, and some great drills to develop our kicking... The man has taken his kicking to a science, and thank you for passing it along.
And all this is only the training sessions I was able to attend.. Sifu Barry Dixon was a great help just assisting during the training sessions, and If you have the chance to pick up his training videos they are great... I only was able to look over volume 1 so far, and it has enough material to keep my lesson plan loaded for over a month!!
Then the brotherhood during and after the camp was amazing. I was able to hang out with Karl and his Welsh ass kickers, and we had a great time.. Plus I had some time to visit and train with my SFC and JKD brothers Keith Miller and Brian Stevenson..
Then Aaron from Arizona, Sifu John and his students from Michigan... All great people... If I am forgetting anyone I apologize, everyone was great.
If you haven't figured it out yet, I had a blast.... You can count on seeing my goofy face at all of these in the future....
And finally a Texas sized thank you to Sifu Tim Tackett... I thank you for accepting me into the family, and showing me your JKD.
Once again.. Thanks to all, and till next time.... Adios

Well I just wanted to echo how great it was to see most of my old jkd brothers and meet some new ones. While I already knew nobody on this crew had egos, it was also nice to see everyone that attended had no ego either. Ive been lucky to have sponged knowledge off this group for years and I think alot of new people got to see how lucky I have been. I always come away from the camp with new material to practice and motivation to push hard until the next camp. I want to thank everyone, but a special thanks to Vince for organizing it and possibly moving the seminar next year to a location other than Vegas. My liver thanks you. The camp seems to go by so fast, I feel I didnt get to hang out with everyone enough. Cant wait to see everyone next year.
