Kenpo Karate - Scott Gehring is a 5th degree black belt under Larry Tatum, a 4th black belt under Joe Palanzo, and 2nd degree under Tom Kelly. Larry Tatum, Joe Palanzo and Tom Kelly were the highest ranking belts in Ed Parkers life-time. Mr. Parker parted the bulk of his art and his knowledge between these three individuals. This trifecta of Kenpo knowledge gives Scott a unique perspective on the Kenpo system that very few people in the world have today.
