    Well let me get back in shape.

    Thing about Kyokushin is that I'm not interested in compition anymore.

    I mean If your smart you'l probably get into max of two fights in the post 21 part of life.


    So in preperation for those two fights why would you, in the case of kyokushin get beaten up three times every week.

    I trained with a pretty hardcore school.

    So, let me get this straight: you have a hard core Kyokushin school available to you for training, and you think that there's something that you'll get from American/Parker's Ken/mpo that wasn't in Kyokushin? What might be missing from Kyokushin is ground work--train Judo or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu rather than Kenpo, for God's sake. The stand-up training you got in Kyokushin is 10x better than anything you'll ever get in Kenpo.

    Kenpo just sucks, horribly, unless there's a lot of sparring, in which case it only sucks, without the horrible part.

    No style teaches sparring, it's something your instructor either has classes for or doesn't. If he doesn't, he fucking sucks gigantic donkey balls, that's the point of this site.

    Sadly, yes. And well, what I meant by Kenpo doesn't teach sparring is that Kenpo has nothing in its curriculum that can be used for sparring, or at least I think so.

    If you can't spar with it, you will get fucked up by someone who does. A boxer will KO you. A wrestler will slam you. A BJJ guy will submit you. A decent street fighter will kick your ass. The only people you'll be able to fight will be those with no fighting skill at all. Not just those with LITTLE skill, because they'll still beat you.

    I realized that, I'm no longer a "Kenpoist" or affiliated with my erm, "former" EPAK school.
