Bentley Police Sergeant Robert Lynn was recently inducted into the Kenpo International Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, with more than 900 attendees from around the world. Kenpo Karate is a style of martial art, of which Lynn is an 8th Degree Black Belt, professor title.

“It was an extremely humbling experience to be in the same Hall of Fame with legends such as William Chow, James Mitose, Edmund Kealoha Parker, Elvis Presley, John Chow-Hoon, Nancy Cerio and others,” Lynn recalls. “My son Bobby was present during my induction, which meant the world to me.” 

The event was part of a Gathering of the Eagles event that included seminars by Kenpoka from all around the world, including Ireland, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and the U.S. Lynn presented on the New England Perspectives of Kenpo, including Kenpo Punch Techniques and also taught the Plum Tree Blocking system.
