ED PARKER's
BIRTHDAY POEM
By: Dennis Conatser 3-19-2004
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SGM ED KEALOHA PARKER
 
"3~19~1931"


 
On this day in '31,
A Kenpo Legend had begun,
Little did the family know,
What this little boy would come to show.

Today he'd be .......... well.... 73,
Still teaching Kenpo to you and me,
It's very strange when I am asked,
How nearly 14 years have quickly passed...

We still remember the lessons taught,
The "Kenpo Creed" and knowledge sought,
Web of Knowledge, Principles and Zones,
Correct execution and alignment of bones.

Stances, shuffles, strikes, kicks and more,
All parts fo the curriculum you had in store.
Technique examples for us to learn,
Extensions to study, logic to learn.

Study, research, explore and train,
Your Depth of Kenpo will grow and gain,
You'll "KNOW OF" to start, then grow to "KNOW",
Then "UNDERSTAND", what you've been shown.

We thank you Sir, for this great Art.
We'll keep it active, within our hearts,
We'll do our best to pass it on,
We'll strive to keep your memory strong!

Happy Birthday

Dennis Conatser 3.19.04
