Interesting... We teach 18 combination at Purple Belt... I was speaking to Prof. Nohelty past Saturday. The topic of the Combinations and the numbering/sequence and when they were passed down to him from Prof. Cerio. (Prof. Cerio recognized both Profs. Nohelty and Bryant as Instructors and they are both listed on Prof.Cerio's Black Belt tree.) Both Prof. Nohelty and Prof. Bryant have documented the entire system from white belt to Nidan in their student manual. You can go to www.masterscenters.com and check for availability. This might give you an insight into the your SKK,NCK,KGS roots. It will help you understand where exactly your founder split from the mother Art. You want a real eye opener??? Go back to www.nickcerioskenpo.com and check for the Masters Text... Want to go back even further??? Check out www.kajukenboinfo.com, if you order the complete Kajukenbo DVD set you can see what the codified root of your sub-art really looks like. The similarities between Kajukenbo and KGS are quite evident in my opinion... The forms are different granted, but there is a ton of common material and fundamentals... I think it would be to your advantage, BEFORE you open your school, to check out your true roots, and then, you can decide exactly what you can pass on to your students... Remember, you want to feel confident in being able to prepare your students to defend themselves and their families if the need arises... Wouldn't you want to make sure what your are teaching has been proven? I recognize the pressures of paying "the rent" all to well... That does not relieve me of the responsibility to make sure what I teach can prepare my students to protect themselves and their families if needed. THAT is a huge responsiblitiy!!! I feel comfortable in teaching what I have learned from my Instructors. I have had the unfortunate experience of having to defend myself... I know what I teach would work, if it had to. Can you say the same?
