    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is this school for real or is it just animal feaces?

    There is this school not far from where I live, I went to the website to see whether they were any good or if they belonged in the same class as ashida kim...the level experience of its instructors was rather questionable but here's the link http://www.dpkempo.com/, you can look for yourself and tell me what you think. (just take a look at the page where all the instructors are listed as well as their bios)_

    Ah, the Dragon-Pheonix. For those times when one mythical creature simply will not suffice.

    Why do they use the Chinese word for master when just about everything else is Japanese? Or is that a Ke?po thing?

    The master's form in the video looked pretty solid, but that doesn't mean his students look anything like that.

    The name is stupid.

    LOL @ woodgrain puzzle mats. Stylin'.

    LOL @ photoshopping the stripes on the 6th+ degree belts.

    "Inner Chi": are they claiming to use "chi attacks" or are they just using the term "chi" to describe inner strength?

    Sounds like an okay school. They're not making any claims about helping your fighting ability, so my guess is to check it out in person and see if it's your cup of tea.

    Why does someone who does muay thai want to muddle around with lolkempo? What do you expect to find there?

    Based on the family tree, it looks like an offshoot of Kajukenbo. A lot of kajukenbo people feel that since the Emperados learned directly from Chow and not Ed Parker, that it's a "purer" form of kenpo, whatever that means.

    If you're looking for ground and pound, or full contact sparring on a regular basis, this isn't the school for you. It's a much more family oriented setting. The only thing I saw that raised my eyebrows is that BB appears to only take about four years and anybody who had been there at least eight years was no lower than 2nd degree.

    There was one of the instructors in the website that supposedly started as a white belt and got his black belt within a year,and then there were like 3 or 4 high school kids that were black belt instructors as well...that made me doubt the school a littlle..
