BOA request for a sit down
« on: May 31, 2010, 04:50:09 PM »
I would like to address the BOA and the BOA only
I would like to officially ask the KSDI BOA for a sit down while in Las Vegas.
They are the ones Sijo picked so they are the ones I would like to speak with.
I will contact some of you by phone but don’t have everyone’s number.
I didn’t want anyone saying what meeting, nobody told me.
That’s the reason for posting the request out in the open.
Thank you in advance.

I have spoken to the following BOA members
In the past few day’s

Grandmaster
Edmund Lewis
Gary Forbach
Rick Kingi
Emil Bautista
Phillip Gelinas
Vince Black

As well as a few non BOA members
Grandmaster
Ted Sotelo
Allan Reyes
Clarence Luna

Thank you to all of them for their very positive response to my request and direction.
I am looking forward to addressing the BOA in Las Vegas.
Again I would like to say that unity is the key.
If we truly work together we will be strong.
If we only (act) like we are working together just to get ahead it will only be a matter of time until we fall apart.
Thank you to all the other I have spoken to in the last few days also.
It has been 3 straight days on the phone for me and my wife is pissed.
She said no more phone for a few days.
Wow put on restriction at my age.
Well I guess you know who has the rank at my house.
Aloha and Mahalo to all.

PS
She didn’t say I had to stay of the computer. LOL

You go Grandmaster Harper.  Sifu Becky and I will not be able to make the KSDI event as my cousin is getting married so we will miss everyone for sure.  

We are here in the NW and there is a lot of diverse Kajukenbo here.  We had a big get together with many Tumpai, Gaylord Method, Vargas clan, & others for a big potluck.  It was a very good time with people sharing ideas & talking with each other and exchanging contact information.  I believe most everyone is on board with having unity and not fragmenting.  Sifu Becky and I are totally on board with being unified, no more politicking, and get on with sharing all our knowledge growing our art and skills just as Sijo wanted.

Look forward to hearing how things go in Vegas and again am bummed we can't be there.

With Love and Respect,
Tim

Thank you but this is a private meeting between me and the BOA members, it will be a closed door meeting.
and only those selected by Sijo as BOA members will be in the room.
no other Grandmasters will be there outside the BOA members and myself.
I have asked them as a favor to hear me out on some personal things.
there may be a unity meeting there as well but that will be up to those in charge of the KSDI event.
GM Kingi said that he wanted to have a meeting but that is not by my request

I would like to have a open meeting at the KSDI touranment this year but it's up to DeChi since it is her and SIJO's tournament, I will contact her and let every one know what she wants to do, I think it's important  for us to have another meeting as the one we had up north...
