    Wait, you have a 3rdBB training partner and you are trying to train with a badly reviewed school?

    So what towns are within commuting distance for you? Martial Way didn't look too far on the map... Are you in High School? Is there any boxing club around or school wrestling? Look at the stickies in the Newbietown about finding a good school and read the Matt Thorton stuff (or youtube) on 'live" training. A lot of styles can be good instruction if the teaching leads to liveness.

    And Martial Way looked from my reading of their instructors' history that several of them came from Villari/Kempo but have continued learning martial arts and added, may I say, legitimate arts like Judo, BJJ, and Arnis. That they have a Villari background doesn't mean that they aren't good.

    After getting a black belt I trained in other Japanese Karate, Tae Kwon Do and American Kenpo. Most of the training was actually almost the same, so it was a good way to stay in shape and practice techniques. The only thing that was lacking was the intensity of self-defense drills and the hardness of sparring. Which give meaning and form to the whole experience - it has been noted here in Bullshido land that kata (forms) suck, however it has also been noted that hard fighting styles have kata that looks WAY better than soft-contact or point sparring styles. S-d in my karate was fast had bodies flying and sparring I was used to hitting and getting hit and so in those latter schools I really had to hold back - well except in the Japanese Karate dojo in Hawaii, they sparred moderately usually, but some of the black belts were happy to turn it up a notch and could beat/hurt me easily.

    I think the Martial Way guys did it the other way, got Villari down then branched out and cross trained.

    We had green belts who could beat all the shotokan bbs - Utah and Idaho shotokan, that is, there were real bbs in Hawaii from Shotokan.

    if you really got such a hard on for Kenpo ( why i dont know) but to each his own, this is the rare case where if the schools recomended dont do it for ya,...yoiu could check out the IKCA i believe it is.

    Chuck sullivan and vic something, they do a train by video Kenpo deal that at least among the kenpo community is condiered respectable.

    Go to Kenpotalk, post your location and what you want, if its kenpo those folks over there will have a hard on for helping you go kenpo.

    If the Villari school teacher cross trains in boxing and Muay Thai then it sounds a hell of a lot better than regular Villari.
