My Shaolin Kempo Karate School also teaches MMA and BJJ My Shaolin Kempo Karate School teaches us BJJ and Counters to them, as well as MMA and " Practical" street situations, even during kumite sparring. I went to USSD and yes, they do teach traditionally, but as you go up in ranks( about second degree on up, as a former instructor friend of mine has told us ) the work outs are alot more intense. As far as " other " schools teaching just " Tradition" well, maybe that's all they just want to teach. Jeff Speakman has his own kempo tapes called " Kempo 5.0" And it looks interesting. He says that you have to evolve and teach what is in your time and future, so your art doesn't die out. I for one, must agree. Anyways, check it out so you can see for yourself, and shoot me an email when ya get a chance!
