the beginning it was an assignment for credits in the kenpo karate group
of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain. And also the insistence
of master Jorge Jiménez for us to publish it. Some
new assignments for credits have been added later and content for the rest
of the website has been developed.
Part of that content comes from Eusebio Paradinas,
a student of Ángel Picó, which graciuosly gave
the techniques description; and part from translation of articles we have
considered interesting. This part is only available in spanish, though.
Nonetheless, we want to thank Angelo Collado, who allowed
us to translate one of his articles, asking only to have his name and a
link to his site in return. What less! Also thanks to Ron Chapél
and Ingmar Johansson, who gracefuly gave us permission to
use their articles, and Joshua Meredith from The Kenponet
for the masters' biographies (these are in the spanish version).
We also want to thank his teachings to our other master,
Luelmo, and to the fellows who have helped with ideas and moral
support. Among the fellows who gave something else are:
Villares, with her drawings; Maite Rodríguez
and Natalia Carpintero and their assignments; Raúl
Nicolás, which insisted upon the pictures section, sending
the first ones; Alberto López and the pictures of
the 1999 IKKA Spanish Championship; Chad Morgan and his poem;
and master Benedicto Rosales, who did not also congratulate
us, but sent some of his own pictures with Jorge, even though he is developing
his own webpage.
To all of them, and the ones who put a link to our site,
a big thank you.
The KenpoMachine team, whose members, past and present,
has been and are:
