Should be like the founding of kajukempo.
I am in San Diego (Spring Valley actually) and looking to hook up with some other local guys to work on stuff. San Soo is known as a "fighting style" so I am surprised at that answer...
Balboa Park with a fencing mask and some rattan? I would LOVE that...Off to Ebay to search: "fencing mask".
p.s. I will be attending any local Throw-Downs to get my a$$ handed to me.

yeah, I've heard that Jimmy Woo was quite the fighter but he didn't produce too many good fighters, most of the KFSS community is more interested in martial arts than fighting if that makes any sense...
