John C. Kim is in SD, if you want to learn how to fall from 11 story buildings and such. That's sort of their headquarters. After a couple years, you might even get the chance to run some new people through free lessons and creep them out with your cultie stare.

Avoid Tae Kwon Do and Karate schools for the most part, they tend to be the biggest black belt factories. And if you visit and they have a dozen people (or some high number) of black belts there, probably a McDojo. If people are getting black belts in a couple of years (2-3) McDojo.
You might check out 'Kara-ho Chinese Kempo
Grandmaster Chow's original style taught by Grandmaster Sam Kuoha. This is a great resource for those interested in the Kara-ho tradition. They're based out of San Diego' ... that's what the internet says.
or this sounds like they must know some Philipino stick stuff?

I asked some Kajukenbo guys @ schools in your area. . There was Larry Guataotao, but he's passed away...
That comment about Kali and Kajukenbo was meant to be a little funny, though there is truth in it. I'll see if there's anyone rec'd in your area, but I really don't know how good they are or if they know ground/stick/ or whatever you want.
I looked at mapquest and now know where Oceanside is at...
You surf? I'm mostly a body surfer, but go out on long board sometimes in Hawaii.

I imagine this guy trying to post in some sort of drunken stupor. Then his eyes begin to droop, his head falls forward and smacks the keyboard, nailing the Post button.
