Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums and I have a few questions. If you saw my other thread, I'm 15, and I have my first trial lesson of Kenpo tomorrow at 6:30. The reason I chose Kenpo was because it is pretty convenient to where I am, the website seems legitimate, and above all; Kenpo seems interesting. I have done a little bit of research, enough to come to the conclusion that Kenpo teaches mostly striking, but some grappling as well. I believe I read that it is a mix of Japanese Karate and Jiu Jutsu. I live in Eastern America, so I'm assuming I will be taking American Kenpo. I'm not sure what the difference is, though. So, my question(s) to you all: Is Kenpo a fun/worthwhile Martial Art? Would it be street-effective? Is it a good Martial Art to start off on? Anything else you feel you should add to a beginner, feel free! Thanks!
