Wright's Self Defense
I love Kenpo. Even though there are McDojo's of it, and alot of places don't train well, I heard of a place called Wright's Self Defense. I asked the guy where his dojo was, and he told me that he actually trained students in a home dojo (his garage, which is stand alone, is the dojo). It made me quite skeptical, but I acccepted to go and check it out. I talked to him and I could see that this guy was no BS, hard training, and not only that, but is focused on competeing as well as self defense.
I'll break it down.
It's small. That's the only thing that can be seen as a con. But it's heated, plenty of mats. (usually they have wrestling mats, but theyre using a different kind for the winter)
Plenty of kick shields, thai pads, ect.
Gloves, headgear, ect.
Kenpo gets a bad rap. But this is a good art. It's Chinese Kenpo-Jujitsu. Sounds like a mess of words, eh? It's Chinese Kenpo with the throws, takdowns, and joint locking of Japanese Jujitsu. Resistance is a must in the dojo for every technique.
Not only that, but we train for a variety of combat sports, including Kickboxing (FCR & Leg Kick), San Shou/Sanda, and MMA.
Great guy. Humble, down to earth, and of course, a talented teacher. Holds a 4th degree in Chinese Kenpo-Jujitsu, as well as holding ranking in Tracy Kenpo, and Judo. He also is a current practioner of Submission Wrestling, and even has a GJJ purple belt come teach occasionally.
If you want great training with a good instructor (at a reasonable price) who will prepare you for both the ring and the street, come to Wright's Self Defense.
