    Kempo Jujitsu works for me. We are an all female instructor team at the moment so we need to ensure what we teach works, especially when we get `big macho men' types coming into the dojo who dont possibly think that the smaller females who teach our classes can put them on their butts and tie their legs around their ears. Big mistake guys!:evil:

    I like the focus, discipline, and ability to provide stress relief in a controlled environment. Plus I was almost born in a dojo (literally) so it is a part of me. :cool:

    Hopefully this is the right place to ask this. Does anyone know of anyone teaching American style Kenpo Karate in the UK in the Midlands /Staffordshire areas? Found a twitter off 88 kenpo in stoke but they dint answer a 'where do you train' question, and can find no information of the art in this area.

    there's a lot I love about kenpo, the science of it, the fluidity and beauty of it, I love how anyone from anywhere can find a completely different reason to be passionate about it and still meet on that common ground of being a , the same can be said for being a martial artist in general

    I love Kajukenbo because I feel it is a fun style to practice. I like how our Grandmaster created a kali style that fully integrated the principles of Kajukenbo into it. I love sparring. Sparring is fun, it helps me to think of new ways to attack and also how to dodge.

    GenghisK Jiu Jitsu Kempoka

    Nominally new to MAP - I posted a little, years ago as Genghis.

    Anyway 3rd dan Aiki Kempo Jiu Jitsu (generally we just call it Kempo like anyone else does) in Buckinghamshire, UK. I'm the club Sensei within the very small British Kempo Society. In reality, we're a small and pretty much independent club teaching our own style, built upon roots of traditional JJ, SCJJ, and some imported bits of other styles - all with the classic desire to create a complete and effective MA.

    Super White!
    I picked it for a couple reasons, first it was super close to home. Second an old friend of mine advanced far enough to be an instructor at one of the other schools before he moved and talked up Master Pearl and couple other people there. Third the school also teaches Tai Chi which my wife was interested in, so I went from running at the gym a few times a week to two group SK classes and one private Tai Chi class each week.
