    Is this their website?
    www.amerikick.com

    Here's how they describe their style, "AmeriKick's unique blend of Kenpo techniques, Tae Kwon Do's kicks, Ju-Jit-Su's joint locks and take-downs, along with the modern philosophies, theories, and styles, makes The Amerikick System the most practical self-defense program available today."

    They also have a page about franchising.

    So take that for what it's worth.

    That's not why it's a McDojo. That quote you posted just leads us to believe it's full of BS.

    THIS leads us to believe it's a McDojo.

    What I like to know who promotes these guys to 8th ,9th or 10th degrees. And not in just one style but like 4 or 5 different styles.
    Dont get me wrong I think people can have Black Belt Ranks in several styles alot of Karateka have dans in Judo . But to get to these exhorbitant ranks.Im sorry I skeptical with alot of them. Im not saying there arent legit people out there but there are alot self promoted ones as well .

    I dont know anything about this school so Im not knocking it but it seems to be there seems to be alot of high ranking Kenpo Masters around.
