    Hello

    I'm a newbie. Took taekwondo for a couple of years and have recently started working out again. Would like to learn some kenpo. Feels good to be getting back into the swing of things. I hope to learn some new stuff while looking around the forum.

    Welcome to Bullshido! Are you looking into picking up TKD again?

    Not with my old school. I'm not interested in running around the tournament circuit.

    Welcome to Bullshido. Any particular reason why you want to do kempo?

    Balance. It seems to be the exact opposite of tkd.

    I was particularly interested in a list of kenpo techniques. Alas, it seems to find the information I'm looking for I'm going to have to shell out some money for videos or travel a couple of hundred miles to the nearest kenpo school. I'm kind of leery of doing either, honestly, as kenpo lineage can be confusing and untrustworthy.

    What gyms are available in your area? Some bullies here might be able to help you choose one or examine the quality

    I live near Lufkin where ATA is the big commercial school, and my old school. I'm not interested in tournaments or the ATA culture. There's an MMA gym but I'm not looking for MMA, I just want something to complement the tkd I already know.
