His Kung Fu was good enough it landed him roles in two movies and 4 cdís along with 3 cassette tapes not to mention several videos that have been sold around the world.

Name another karate teacher in Floyd County that has accomplished as much as he has.

I addressed this a while back when the green-eyed monster reared his ugly head. Troy Studied under 5 different teachers personally one of which was Danny Lane a world famous student of Chuck Norris. He personally tested and qualified for 2 black belts and a brown belt.

Besides I donít know any serious student (even one of Troy's teachers Jimmy Porter) who doesnít study books and videos to further their studies. Bill Goldberg from WCW learned wrestling from video tapes.

so MB you said kung fu, then why does fake master Troy call his junk black dragon kempo, because to clear up somethings, kung fu is chinese, Chuck Norris's system is korean, kempo is from master Ed Parker, I once asked Troy what he thought of Ed Parker he said who? I was like so fake, don't take karate, kung fu, kempo or whatever he calls his book and video learnings, he a karate master in his mind only, this is my final thought, have a good day y'all

I know there is something wrong with your story because his system should be called Kenpo with an N. Ed Parker taught Kenpo and Troy got his license from one of Edís students.

I know Troy knows a lot about Ed because we sat down about a decade ago and had several discussions about the history of Ed Parker and Kenpo. I know something is up with your story because Troy knows a lot about Ed.

The reason Troy calls his ďsystemĒ Kenpo is licensing and control. He gets re-certified to teach Tae Kwon Do every couple of years or so, I know because he borrows my books on forms to refresh his memory before he does. In reality he teaches a lot of Tae Kwon Do however if he called it that he would have to pay a percentage and have his students tested nationally at a cost of hundreds or thousands of dollars. Also if you teach a national system you must teach it an exact way. Since he teaches grappling, Kung Fu and a couple other things as well he canít call his ďsystemĒ by a national name.

if you want a real karate class go to family academy of martial arts, they have real black belt instructors there, not hong kong phoney like troy lmao. for all the poor people who think they have real black belts from troy, go to a national, and you be laughed out of the place. remember a belt is only as good as the instructor you got it from.

Troy is a real nice man,he always has so much positive energy,i have never once heard him say negative things about anyone and i have known him for about three years.everytime i have been around him he is polite and respects you.troy is a very determined man despite whatever some people may think,he has mastered and accomplished alot in his life so far.troy offered a self defense class a couple of years ago and i can honestly say that what that he learned me really paid off because a man hit me and if it had not been for what troy had learned me it really is untelling what could of happened to me!! THANK YOU TROY SO VERY MUCH!!!!

Just wanted to correct you kenpo Karate was once known as the Ed Parker system because many of the Kenpo instructors trained directly under that great martial artists. However, the founder of Kenpo Karate was not Ed Parker but rather his instructor, Professor William (Willie) K. S. Chow, who began calling his system "Kenpo Karate" in 1949. Chow trained in "Kenpo Jiu-Jitsu" under Great Grand Master James Mitose who had learned the Kenpo art in Japan from his grandfather Sakuhi Yoshida and also many have tried to give a Chinese origin to Kenpo Karate, but the fact is, Kenpo is a Japanese/Chinese art. The word Kenpo is Japanese (not Chinese) and is loosely translated as "Fist Law". However, Kenpo in Japanese refers to a Chinese root.
