    The key is tappin out, dont be ashamed, just do it! There is always someone who is going to come into the place thinking there going to kick the black belts ass and end up waking up in there drool.
    As described above, it's a rush and then a nasty head ache, hell you can even get a nasty head ache from a partial choke out when you see stars so to speak. Fiction, I agree on the arm bar scenario, hate it when you go slow with someone and show them how to do it, and then wham, you need to get your arm reset.

    I take Okinawa Kenpo and I like it a lot. It's a good supplement to my BJJ and Submission. By the time you get to a black belt, your sparring is pretty much like a NHB match with headgear and feet padding.

    I just hope Kempo/Kenpo isn't going to turn into another mcdojo dominated style.

    Too late....but luckily for you, Okinawan Kenpo isn't the same as most Kempo schools in the US, who's lineage goes back to Mitose. I don't know alot about Okinawan Kenpo, but I hear it's more like traditional Japanese Karate than anything else.

    Here's my latest comments on this:
    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...=32942&page=11

    Beyond that post I'll say there's nothing really great about Kempo that sets it apart from anything else. The way I learned it, was as an ecclectic style, but I only found out the only reason I learned to fight was because of my instructors training methods, as well as his drills which he added in from past martial arts experience. The various kempo systems, can be made to work, but as a whole, it needs an overhaul. The principles (constant high-low attacks with hands and feet simultaneously, striking to particular points such as the throat/eyes/groin/nose etc...) need to remain entact while the system is modernized, and the baseless dogmas of TFT-reaction training are removed.

    In the end, I'd say just train in something else, unless by chance there happens to be a really good, and realistic instructor in your area.

    Does he teach the advanced classes? Its possible he just thinks it isn't worth his time to teach beginners.
