    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    That didn't take long....

    Less than 24 hrs after UFC 66, I got a call from a perspective student that chose my school (Haines Kenpo Karate) out the phone book because he watches the UFC and "Chuck Liddell does kempo".

    For the record, I told him that if he wanted to fight like Chuck Liddell, my school wasn't the place to train and referred him to the MMA gym I train at.

    He said he didn't want to be a pro fighter, he just wanted to get in better shape and learn some basic hand skills. He also said my school was right down the street and that he felt that the MMA gym would be out of his price range (which it is).

    After talking with him a little more to get a better feeling on what he really wanted, I told him that our standard kenpo program still probably wouldn't be the best thing for him, but that I could set him up with a qualified private instructor that could work with him on the specific things he wanted.

    He's coming in Tuesday to meet the instructor and take an intro class.

    He has a kempo tattoo. And that's enough.
    I think only idiots assume that someone who trains for the ring can't make the switch to the street as soon as things change. - dweidman

    So what does your school offer now that you've explained what it does not?

    You should wear them to the next throwdown and totally surprise some BJJ n00b (like me if I was in the same area) when you beat his ass.
