    We have a Chinese Kenpo school in Austin. Is this the same thing as SD, OR vice versa?

    If you click on the belt colors in the link above it tells you what you need to know to advance to the next level. I have not heard anything negative about this style and their lineage makes no mention of Grand Master Sin The of Shaolin Do. I remember reading about Ed Parker mentioning Chinese Kenpo somewhere. I am just curious about this since there is so much controversy about SD.

    I'm not an expert in American Kenpo, but it looks like the school is basically teaching Parker Kenpo plus some Jui Jitsu added in. This is not the same as Shaolin Do. In fact, I remember stopping by that school back in '98 when I lived in Austin. If I recall correctly, the head instructor was ex-Marine and seemed to be pretty hard core. If you're looking for more info on Kem/npo in Austin, PM me and I can give you a couple of names to check out.
