  1. Left out a lot about Tracys. They were the main push to contracts and franchises.They extorted $ from owners in Phila. Pa. and had 2 shot. One , a 18 yr.old instructor, died. I was one who they tried to extort. The FBI were called in. Tracys weren’t the good guys no matter what they taught. However, Tracy system, based on Parkers was more direct + easier to learn.Also many, many schools and teachers are descendents of Tracy franchises. Interesting article. I’ll buy you books and check them out.


  2. Hi Dennis, quite interesting. Please email me, your comment is interesting, to say the least, and I would like to verify, get more data, and so on. Thanks. Al Case (aganzul@gmail.com)
