    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking to switch styles and have always wanted to learn Kenpo. The only school in my area is an Action Karate franchise. I took a couple of classes but while their katas match everything I've read and watched their self defense techniques have different names "Darting Serpent, prayer of death" etc....
    I understand there are numerous styles of kenpo: american, shaolin, kara-ho etc.. Does anyone know if Action Karate is one of these forms of Kenpo or something commercial that's been invented? I'm a traditionalist and it's important.

    As far as I know it's perfectly legit and based on Ed Parkers American Kenpo. If you want more info do a search for Al Tracy Kenpo.

    I don't know anything about Action Karate, except that those tech names sound like Tracy terminology. Where are you? Maybe someone could offer a suggestion.
