Daniel, fan du King!
J'ai été surpris,la semaine passée à l'usine,de la passion d'un collégue pour Elvis Presley!
Il sait tout de lui ou presque tout sur son passé martial!
Si je mets ce petit mot pour toi, c'est que le mot fan est faible! Tu n'y connais rien en musique, tu ne parles pas anglais mais tu collectionnes depuis tes 8 ans tout ce qui a trait au "king" et tu en as 52! Chapeau!
Tu as même fait faire la fameuse bague TCB!
Merci pour toutes les photos que tu m'as offert d'Elvis en tenue de combat et pour la video dans son intégralité!
Les commentaires qui suivent se trouvent sur le site de maître Larry Tatum!
Je te les traduirai pour toi et te tiendrai au courant dès que David Stanley (producteur de "Protecting the King"),frère et garde du corps d'Elvis ainsi que ceinture noire,4ième degré de kenpo sera de nouveau à Utrecht!(photo dessinée par ed Parker junior aussi visible dans le film)
Masters Meet in Florida
The Weekend of the 6th was a moment in time when Three 10th Degree Black Belts, Larry Tatum, Dave Hebler and Richard "Huk" Planas came together and taught for two days at Mr. Sean Kelley's Kenpo School in West Palm Beach Florida.
For the third time in history the TCB patch designed by Elvis Presley was given out in recognition for outstanding achievement to Master Larry Tatum.

Black Belts, Larry Tatum, Dave Hebler and Richard "HUK" Planas came together and taught for two days at Mr. Sean Kelley's Kenpo School in West Palm Beach Florida. A long with these Masters were Master's Sean Kelly (the host of the camp). Rainer Schulte (the person that established Kenpo in Germany) and Master David Stanley (brother of Elvis Presley). With all their combined effort they united almost 100 Black Belts and a number of lower ranks into one unified weekend of learning and fun.
Their wasn't a moment when the mats weren't full of excitement as
these Masters expounded on the Art they love so much and took the
participants on a Journey into the heart of Kenpo.
Talking with Mr. Tatum and Mr. Palanis they both told us that this
was the first time that the two of them have taught together in over
| On Saturday night Mr. Kelly gave a special awards dinner banquet for the Masters and teachers from other schools. Plaques of appreciations were given out to all the teachers with two very special presentations. A special patch designed by Elvis Presley before his death, (The TCB Patch ) meaning Take care of Business. Elvis loved Kenpo and wanted to have his own Kenpo Patch. This was the third time in history that this patch has been given out in recognition for outstanding achievement in the Kenpo world. This Patch was presented to Mr. Larry Tatum by David Stanley who with Mr. Heebler had a hand in the design a long with Elvis.
Another very special award was given (the Key to the City) to Mr. Palanis by the former mayor for his work in helping Mr. Kelly in the community.
It is events like this one that keep the Kenpo community strong and
moving forward on a positive line.
J'en profite aussi pour saluer ma famille du Maryland et de l'Illinois!(saluti alla famiglia di Baltimora e di Chicago)
