Gotcha Brian.
Uh Medulanet is mostly right, Hack still does train him and still trains people under Hawaiin Kempo even if it is extremely modified and includes a lot of other stuff. I heard somewhere that he still teaches the self defense "techniques" standard to kenpo. Chuck sometimes trains at his on gym and in Vegas but Hack his his main trainer.

Chuck Liddell, who is is a 4th degree blackbelt in Hawaiian Kempo Karate, was just presented last night in Las Vegas with a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu by John Lewis. Liddell's trainer, John Hackelman, was also on hand in Las Vegas to congratulate Liddell on his belt promotion.

Hey, I just found out that one of my favorite MMA fighters, Frank Mir, is a Kenpo black belt:

http://frankmir.com/?q=node/3

"Frank Mir was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. He started studying the Martial Arts at a young age at his fathers Karate Club. You could say he was born into the martial arts as both his mother and father are martial artists. Frank obtained his Black Belt in Kenpo Karate as a teenager. He also excelled in wrestling and won the Nevada State High School Wrestling Championships in the heavy weight division. After graduating from High School he started studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is now a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He is also an accomplished Muay Thai Kickboxer."
