    Where are you at? Maybe we can find a decent school in your area. Villari has a shitty rep - though I guess you may have gathered that!

    Listen to Fug, he has more experience than you think. Why would you want to make something work that is broken? Just because you have "very good strict form on my techniques" doesn't mean it automatically transfers to another discipline.

    You are in the middle of woods!

    How far is it to Albany? Probably too far, same with Canadian schools?

    From just a google search, I'd check out these if they aren't too far to commute:

    http://www.duquettesubmissionfighting.com/?pg=classes
    Duquette Submission Fighting
    37 Port Kent Road
    Nicholville, New York 12965
    Phone (315) 328-4073

    and
    http://www.vtmartialarts.com/school/instructors.asp
    Martial Way Self Defense
    83 Adirondak Drive
    St Albans, VT 05478
    (802) 527-5141

    The Martial Way looked interesting, a very mixed bag of black belts including Kempo, BJJ, Arnis, Judo etc - looks like a family friendly school that looks like has some good fighters. And the Duquette has total cred from the writeup . Duquette looks like a bunch of fighters training Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and grappling/MMA.

    Martial Way has Kempo classes, so it might be what you are looking for. They also teach other arts like grappling and they enter jiu jitsu competitons so it would be easy to add grappling.

    The video where he used his belt as a weapon makes me question his respect towards his juniors.

    my experience

    i have to admit something i spent 1 year at villaris when i was younger i remember it was taught by master boise and we did spontanious drills and a circle thing kinda like kajukempo but i dont remember the techniques which is why i asked my first question a few months of boxing (i know not much but i practice on my own to this day) , 3yrs taekwondo, 6 months jiu jitsu

    Hmmmm yeah, I think you know where I'm going. You do not have the experience, unless you are some type of prodigy, to retool any Martial art.
