"Martin Wheeler, one of the Lamkin's Black Belts, introduced me to Mr. Kevin Lamkin and his brother, Mr. Eric Lamkin, who trained and taught Ed Parker’s American Kenpo Karate in Louisville. I immediately began my training with the Lamkin’s. In July of 1998, after much training and hard work, I earned my 1st Degree Black Belt in American Kenpo Karate. In August 2003 I earned my 2nd Degree Black Belt under the supervision of Mr. Eric Lamkin." - Kevin Nicholson

Kevin Nicholson's Teaching Philosophy:

" ... My philosophy mirrors that of my instructors, Kevin and Eric Lamkin. They have always emphasized that you must train diligently and develop your basics in order to enhance your capabilities for more advanced techniques. You should never short cut your training to attain a ranking. ... This system is structured to teach practical self-defense through the use of efficient, well designed, and scientifically sound technique."


"I highly recommend Kevin Nicholson as an instructor. Kevin is highly analytical, devoted to the martial arts, and perfectionist. Kevin attended our Instructor's Candidate Training Course from 1995 - 1997. In that course, Kevin's teaching ability was honed to a professional Instructor, earning him Full Instructorship. It is these, among other reasons that I have selected Kevin Nicholson as a Regional Representative of the American Kenpo Legacy Association."

- Kevin Lamkin
