US ARMY...all over
My name is Sami Ibrahim. I started my Kenpo training with Mike Veninshek at the Midwest Kenpo School in Cleveland, OH. I had a little prior martial arts experience but Kenpo really found its way into my heart and soul. When the school closed I continued to study with Mike at his home. He really was my mentor growing up and if not for him I would not be who I am today.
I eventually entered into Military Service. I am still in the Army today. I continued to study and train daily in Kenpo. I did dabble in various other martial arts over the years but my main focus has remained Kenpo. During my tour in Iraq, I shared some of the Kenpo Mike taught me with the other service members, Mike's lessons saved many lives including mine on so many levels.
While in Arizona recently I visited with Clyde O'briant who's lessons helped me greatly get my Kenpo back on track. I look forward to improving my self as I walk the Road to Knowledge. One day I would like to follow in my teacher's footsteps and pass the art to the next generation.
