The Vision

The Gathering of Eagles was held for the first time in Las Vegas in 1999. It was Al Tracy’s vision that it be an all-inclusive kenpo event, not dominated by any particular style or organization.

Likewise, in 2007, the inaugural Kenpo International Hall of Fame honored those who have spent lifetimes perfecting and spreading the arts of kenpo, regardless of style, organization or location. Each new class of inductees has been chosen on the merits of their contribution to the larger family of Kenpo arts.

Staying true to that vision has always been a priority of the Gathering of Eagles and Kenpo International Hall of Fame event organizers, and 2022 is no exception. It is our hope that the 2022 events will honor and bring together all Kenpo styles and organizations for a world class convention of seminars; to train, to learn, to honor each other and Kenpo, and most especially to strengthen familiar bonds and make new ones.

The Event

We welcome the presence of all Kenpo styles, organizations, masters, instructors and students. The venue will offer two days of seminars presented by Grand Masters and Senior Masters of Kenpo from around the world.

The event will conclude at a banquet on Saturday, August 20 honoring the 2021 and 2022 Hall of Fame inductees and Kenpo Award recipients.

The Gathering of Eagles is an opportunity for the family of Kenpo to come together, attend over thirty (30) seminars presented by some of the most senior masters and top instructors of today, honor friends and leaders with the KIHOF inductions and awards, and to create and strengthen our bonds with each other; for it is through these bonds that Kenpo survives and continues to thrive.
