Apparently none of you knew Ed Parker.
He was an awesome man and a real friend to Elvis.
He was not a bloodsucker or a hanger on.He made his own living and took nothing from Elvis. He only worked as a body guard when Elvis asked him to...He was a true Hawaiian with an Aloha spirit.

Jim is right on with this one. Parker was a fraud in the martial arts and vampire sucking Elvis dry.

I suppose one can look at the players in Elvis' life as they choose. My view is, the late Ed Parker was chosen by Elvis for reasons we would not be aware and one which the general public is quite familiar: Elvis and Ed shared a mutual interest in the martial arts.

The ridiculous Ed Parker, founder of Kempo Karate. Another "yes" man for Elvis. Shame he wasn't a real Sensei and try to help Elvis instead of latching on to his coat-tails.
