Fun Friday – Master Ken enters the Martial Arts Hall of Fame!

For as much as we’ve talked about Master Ken’s many accomplishments here on KFK – from achieving the rank of 11th degree black belt and thus becoming the most powerful martial artist of all time to forging the most undefeatable martial art ever devised in the form of Ameri-Do-Te – there is one achievement of his that we realize we have overlooked. Not his consistent addressing of the flaws and follies found in every martial art ever created save for Ameri-Do-Te. Not his creation of ingenuous and utterly invincible fighting techniques such as the Kill Face, the Thrust of Freedom, and the Hurticane. And certainly not his schooling of supposedly deadly fighters such as Shai Hai and Julie Kedzie. Instead, we have failed to properly pay homage to Master Ken’s induction into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame just under a year ago!

As Master Ken himself observes in his acceptance speech, the organization can now truly claim to live up to its name following his induction. In the presence of such well-known and respected martial arts “masters” as Cynthia Rothrock, Frank Dux, Bill “Superfoot” Wallace, Kathy Long, Eric Lee, and many others, Master Ken simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to address the endless series of flaws and foibles in the fighting arsenal of each one. And as we all know, simply standing in the presence of Master Ken raises one street lethal combat prowess by ten percent, and fifty percent by hearing him criticize your respective martial art. Should these luminaries of the martial arts world choose to set aside their egos and train first hand with Master Ken after hearing his acceptance speech, they may yet become the kind of street lethal Ameri-Do-Te warriors that his many disciples have!
