    Nothing wrong with checking out the kenpo.

    *hears howls of outrage*

    Disclamer: It will probably suck, but 1 of the kenpo here does cross train mma and bjj. And maybe there is good kenpo out there, after all, no one can beat up the infamous Clyde, known as He Who Kicks Bullie Asses (at the throwdowns - for the n00bs).

    Anyway, work out. It all adds up. Find a fun place.

    I'm kind of curious why you think you "only have 4 months." You could take advantage of your free time to check out a bunch of styles while you're on summer break -- go to a whole bunch of schools, take a trial class or three, check out the vibes and the cool toys in the dojos. Then pick one you like, and look for a school near your college to continue your training. Why stop when you go back to school? You have the WHOLE REST OF YOUR LIFE to train, not just 4 months.

    My .02, worth what you paid for it. Don't let artificial timelines dictate your choices.

    After several decades in Ke?po, brains tend to rot. That Whorian Guy has more Ke?po than you can shake a bo at.

    Well my school does have a martial arts class so I do that doing the school year. I'm just looking for something during the summer months. My little brother is going to this kenpo place and says he likes it. So ill probably try a class.

    Ah. Gotcha. In that case, I'd have to say the same thing as patfromlogan -- just go find a cool place to work out and have some fun. Knowledge or training is never wasted, I think.

    East Coast as a location is pretty vague. What state and own are you in? There are a few of us from the East Coast around here that could help.

    Anywhere between West Chester PA and Hockessin DE will work.

    I heard NYU has a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class and my friend attended it for a few months. Don't know how much he learned but we'll see this summer.

    Other than that the self-defense classes taught at colleges, which I've seen, are a joke, complete waste of time, and moreover probably do more harm than good. The TKD club in my school has something called "no contact sparring" which they buy gear for and is as much as they do sparring wise. A guy who participated in that club rolled with me (Judo noob) and my friend (BJJ noob) and was hooked in an hour.

    Unless your school has something really respectable, preferrably affiliated, or your going to work out with the wrestling team, I say find something outside of it. The college has too many qualms about "possible injury" for there to be any decent MA clubs, at least in the cases I have seen.
