    All options are currently being considered.

    "Also, one thing I would like to see is all of the decades of photos Master Abbate collected get put up on a website for all of us to sift through. I know it would be a massive undertaking, but there are a lot of memories there.
    AS far as pics go, Gm literally had 10's of thousands in his garage that he has collected and kept over at least 40 years. most martial arts and marine stuff.

    I will speak to my brothers in Tai Kit Kuen about openly posting a couple, but not alot. People on the internet tend to disect stuff and crap talk no mater how awesome a person or his art may be, and I will not allow that to happen to Gm.

    Anyone truly interested in learnign, can call up some of the blacksashes and see if a visit can be aranged to one of the schools. to take a look around at all of this awesome stuff. it's like a museum, really.


    either way, it's all at his home and his family is grieving, so nothing like that will happen in the near future. thank you to everyone for their kind words and support.

    Yeah, you are right. I have done some of that myself. Maybe just post pics from various social events, like the Christmas parties and such, so there is nothing to critique, just memories shared.

    NICE!!

    Very well done!

    Theres lots more to the story though. You really need to talk to guys who were with him for years and years. I was only there for 8 or 9 months. My divorce put an end to Kung Fu for a while.

    I have a tribute reel of various footage I found on the internet over the years.

    If anyone wants to see what Cobra Kai looked like:

    Good to have you back here on the forums. You've had the weirdest journey with forum membership than any other member.

    LOL!

    No Kidding!

    I think what happened is I got on the wrong side of a very green moderator. That guy went into the Kung Fu forum and found some weird obscure way to ban people, and then couldn't remember how he did it to un-ban me....and no one was able to figure out how it was done.

    So a 3 day ban became like 15+ forever years, but ONLY on the main forum. Everything else I had access to.

    So somewhere, buried deep in some hard to find 'un-thought of' forum admin menu is a little box missing a check mark, and no one knows how to find it.

    Then I lost the password to my RD Alias-1A replacement profile, and its connected to a dead e-mail address... I cant reboot it.

    So yeah, its been a wild ride.
