Anyone having anything to contribute about EPAK are also welcome to contribute.

Can't speak for PD, but I've gotten the impression that Kenpo can be a pretty decent TMA if taught right. It's definitely up there with the more practical ones.

I only took Kenpo for a VERY little bit when I was younger. ed Parker was a good inspiration for the martial arts though. He didn't buy into all the wacky mysticism and was trying to make a practical style of self defense that didn't hide behind bullshiit.

I do agree with you guys, and yes thats a big point I try to make to some people, that it needs to be taught right. It can be a great system. I had a bad experience with EPAK, mostly the fault of my own teacher. I abandoned the system all together, mainly because there are too many people that have a bad influence on kenpo and are pushing it in the wrong way. Also, I found another system that I feel is better for my needs.
Thanks for the replies
