Has anyone heard of a Samuel J. Lone Wolf? He is opening a dojo in my Area, Palestine, Texas. I have been wanting to study Kenpo and was curious if anyone here knows any info on him? I talked to him over the phone and he gives a good first impression, but thought it would be good to do a little research.
He apparently used to be affiliated with Tracy kenpo, since he said he was no longer affiliated with them.... His last name is Lone Wolf. I came across a miliatry record of a Samuel J lone Wolf that was in the 5th division Special Forces, Master Medic did two terms in Vietnam Rank SFc/e 7 got out in '73. I believe is the same guy. He is an older man, around 56. He said he teaches more"original style" not EPAK along the lines of Kajukenbo. I have only talked to him once but he is going tobe having a weekned "open house" demonstration to kick off his opening. He said he also had some schools down aound Galveston, Texas. That's about all I know.
THIS IS WERE IT GET INTRESTING
Well I did give Mr. Tracy a call.He was very nice to take time to talk to a
complete stranger..... He really did not say anything nice about Sam Lonewolf.
He did not talk bad about him, he just saud I should stay away from him. That he
is really Hispanic, not Native American like he claims. Mr. Tracy said he ripped
them off twice (He did not go into detail on how) and that he as a long list of
aliases (spelling?) and criminal record. I know that is only one side of the
story, but it doesn't look pretty. I think I will approach Sam and ask Him about
it, I don't know...
I did find reference to him on International society of headfamilies and headfounders( www.ishh.net/founders.html (http://www.ishh.net/founders.html)) On there it shows him as 10th dan Ipiiki Ogami Ryuha Bujutsu and Saigo Ha daito Ryu Aiki Bujutsu. It seems all a little suspect.

FWS and Native Americans Cooperate on Illegal Trading Conviction
Last year, members of the Native American community in Nashville, Tennessee, apprised FWS agents that Joe Angel Molano (aka Charles Thunderhawk, aka Sam Lone Wolf) was illegally trading in eagle feathers while masquerading as a Native American. The subsequent investigation led to charges against Molano for trading protected wildlife parts and products and his conviction on those charges in federal court last August. Molano was sentenced to 45 days in a federal penitentiary and a year's supervised probation, and fined $500 to reimburse the government for costs incurred during the investigation. Following the investigation, American Indian Movement (AIM) national field director Dennis Banks met with FWS officials to discuss the drafting of a resolution urging all tribal councils to cooperate with FWS law enforcement personnel in fighting illegal trafficking in wildlife. In a press release issued after the conviction, AIM had this to say: "The sentencing brings a halt to a career based on intimidation, violence, lies and disrespect for Indian Peoples and Native Spirituality. Court proceedings brought to light more than 20 aliases, nine felony arrests, and eight different Social Security numbers in the last ten years. Molano's con game was uncovered and denounced by AIM shortly after the Sundance at Pipestone in 1994. Up to then, Molano had been conducting ceremonies and sweats for money. 'This is an important step in the fight to stop the desecration of our ceremonies, sacred items and Indian Peoples", stated Dennis Banks. 'This will send a message to other phony "Medicine Men and women", Indian and non-Indian, that we will no longer tolerate the disrespect and desecration that has occurred in the past ten years.'"
FWS and National Marine Fisheries also announced a new joint management policy last fall which is designed to enhance the role of tribal governments in every aspect of the endangered species program, from provision of information on which species should be protected to more active management of recovering species on or near tribal lands.

Fake AIM group
From Florida AIM, 23 June 1998
Recently a group of individuals have falsely begun claiming to be the American Indian Movement in Florida. These individuals are frustrated by Florida AIM's efforts to expose faux medicine people and faux tribal groups-including the Lower Muscogee Creek Tribe whose application for federal acknowledgement was denied because 74% of its membership could not show lineal descendancy from any tribe/Nation.
Further investigation shows that the individuals involved in the charade of claiming to represent the thirty year movement of Indigenous peoples, include but are not limited to:
Kim C. Clark K.C. believed to reside in Polk County, FL Claims to be President.
Jack Exum aka Screaming Eagle believed to reside in Hillsborough County, FL Also claims on documents to be President
David Exum aka Chobee believed to reside in Pasco County, FL
Charles Welch of Tampa, FL listed on documents as State Director. Individual claiming to be Mr. Welch called State Office and denied role. Unable to verify that was in fact Mr. Welch
Vickie Welch of Tampa, FL
James Boettner aka Sawgrass believed to reside in Volusia County
Joseph Molano aka Sam Lonewolf, aka Charles Thunderhawk of Tampa, FL
