    I am currently ranked at 4th Dan in Kempo Karate. I am studying Kempo jutsu with Professor Feliciano (Kimo) Ferreira.

    My dojo name is Valley Shore Martial Arts located in Centerbrook, CT.

    To me Martial Arts is a way of life and I love kempo for its continuous flow of devastating motion.

    I was put in that group without my permission.. I belong to a couple of police defensive tactics groups and the owner of this group copied my old bio and put me in his group without my permission...

    I like it because it is the first martial art system ive been involved in where "flow" is taught when creating self defense combinations for drills. If it feels right it is right cant go wrong there... the hard part is knowing when to break the combo!

    This is one of the funner arts I have learned. It often feels like over kill when we practice our techniques, but I guess if youre gonna do something you might as well do it right:-D

    love the art, the instructors and the way they make us work hard but within our own limits.

    Have you considered staying with a system at least until Shodan?

    USSD i left because I didn't agree with some of their policies as far as instructors go and osme of the things I witnessed. I also hurt my back which caused me to take a break from training and allowed some hind sight to creep in.

    The Shukokai training my instructor moved out of state.

    I do plan on sticking with Ten Chi Kenpo as long as I remain in Southern California.

    Any idea who to contact about an error on the below site?

    It lists Ed Parker as being a a senior student of Professor Chow. An obvious mistake...

    "1.) The International Kenpo-Karate Association that had been headed by Edmund Parker. A senior student of William K. S. Chow ( Chow being the founder of Kenpo-Karate, and a senior student of Mitose ), Ed Parker is known today as the father of American Kenpo."

    orange belt (testing to green in june :p)

    love kempo because of the competition part of it , the sparring is very good (i think that's because my sifu , is also a 1 degree black belt in taekwondo black belt in kickboxing , and a 3 degree black belt in chinese kempo , its a very wise man) , the self defense techniques are great , and Yes i love the Bo staff (or Kum Tao as we call it) Kata/form :D
