Scott Wren should not be around children. I witnessed him threatening a child and yelling obscenities to him (he'll beat the F@#$ out of him) along with other words. We were at a hotel in Cincinatti where a tournament was held for the Pro Am circuit. He physically grabbed this child and threatened him into a confession that he was not a part of. I don't know why the child's parents did not press charges. This woke up a number of rooms of patrons at the hotel. He also threatened three women who were outside the hotel smoking cigarettes at the time. He is not a man who I would want teaching my children. Please do not go to his tournaments or his school!

Scott Wrenn is a wonderful teacher who teaches respect in his students at the cincinatti tournament his school was the ONLY school who sat through the national ceramones. After the ceramones some of the parents LET THERE KIDS draw things on HIS CAR he was yelling at those parents about letting them do that after the fact was done that dojo was kick out. so in closing Scott Wrenn is a wonderful teacher who will do anything for his students and he is wonderful around kids i have seen him around kids and i will stand behinf him 100% of the way

I have no idea what you are talking about. I never cussed any kid out at any tournament.
If you are speaking about the incident where one of your kids vandalized multiple vehicles. I did have an argument with the chief instructor from that school. I never laid hands on any kid and you need to stop telling stories. Try growing up, act like a martial artist should be and maybe just try and show some professionalism at tournaments. Should I tell the stories how Olympic karate berated a time keeper.

Thanks Alex for your support. The truth is out there and James is defiantly not telling it.

James, let me tell you how I feel about the whole situation and you opening your ignorant mouth when you don't have a freakin clue as to what goes on in the Pro-Am circuit. I have been going to Pro-Am tournaments since the beginning and there is one thing i have noticed, while at a tournament I run into the most disrepectful, rude, inconsiderate, and self-centered people. Some of them are kids, some are parents, and some are the black belts. They make me ashamed of what martial arts has become. I watch Scott Wrenn almost daily pour his life, heart, and passion into the kids at USA Kenpo. He teaches them respect, honor, courage, accountability, among the ability to defend themselves when need be. On the other hand I also watch as Scott Wrenn gets SHIT ON by other dojo's. If Scott has done something in the past to anger some people, that's between him and them, but too many people take out their anger on our kids, and spread lies about Scott and the whole dojo. So now tell me JAMES, if you were the center of this how long do you think you could go without snapping. Especially when the people at the center of it is vandalizing your cars, and threatening to fist fight your kids when caught out walking around. So next time you begin to blast someone JAMES get your freakin facts straight, cause I know lots of people who will go into battle to defend Scott Wrenn credibility.

I was witness to the incident. I witnessed these things happen from a hotel room window. James, if you are such a wonderful, law abiding, caring, non thieving person, why would you allow the things to happen that you allege to have happen to that child? Why, because they didn't happen that way. If you were awaken by all of this, why could you not be a man and stop it? Why did you do nothing? Because you couldn't... the angelic child in question doesn't lie, cheat or steal either does he? I have evidence to the contrary. I was also witness to this "child" cussing out a black belt from another school AT THE CEREMONY!! It also indicates what is being taught to him both at home and at the karate school where certain values should be taught. Scott Wrenn was passive in his reaction, at least to what I would have done had it happen to me. Some people better be thankful that my car wasn't touched. James, until you yourself can become a reliable, honest and trustworthy person, you have no right to sling the crap. I would support Scott in anything on any given day. Specifically defending him against a person like you. People like you are going to run up against the wrong person one day...

I was not at the Bowling Green Classic or the Blue Grass Nationals in 2005!
The Olympic karate Center in Bowling Green. KY. is not what it once was. Ken Eubanks would be rolling in his grave if he knew who was running it now!

This is why I do not attend tournaments any longer. I've seen so many children AND adults being rude and disrespectful. Unfortuatly, the kids are a product of their parents and instructor.
