Grandmaster Robert Temple has shared information with me regarding an upcoming event at the Martial Arts History Museum in Burbank, California honoring him, called “Robert Temple Day.” I had the pleasure of meeting Grandmaster Temple on my recent trip to Los Angeles, where Hong Kong cult cinema icon Master Carl Scott was nice enough to demo forms from his Warrior Method of martial arts. Carl Scott has trained with Robert Temple, along with a number of Kenpo masters, including Sijo Steve Muhammad, Bishop Donnie Williams and others.
I interviewed Scott and Williams for the documentary Blvd. Warriors, which will be completed next year. Both discuss the history of the BKF and its reasons for coming into being.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area, this sounds like a great opportunity to meet & connect with Kenpo martial artists in the area and learn more about this form of traditional martial arts. This will also give you an opportunity, if you have not done so before, to visit the museum and it’s displays, which celebrate significant contributions to the history of Martial Arts, especially martial arts in American media.
Here are the details for “Robert Temple Day” at the Martial Arts History Museum:
