Open Letter of Thanks to Grandmaster Al Tracy

(Below is an open letter to Grandmaster Al Tracy)

Dear Grandmaster Al Tracy,

I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the accomplishments that you, Will, Jim and Pat Tracy have provided the martial arts community over the decades. Forty years ago I began training in the Tracy System of Kenpo. The lessons, and principles, taught in the Tracy System of Kenpo have imparted deep values that have affected all parts of my life. Throughout the years, you have given valuable advice and guidance that has made my journey in the martial arts, enjoyable and successful. I want to thank you for your patience, guidance, and strong leadership. It is these qualities, as well as many other qualities, that makes me proud to declare my allegiance to you - the true grandmaster of kenpo karate.
