I'm looking for a 'complete' martial arts training program on Oahu, HI. Not a sport for points and trophies, but one that teaches you to finish the fight. I've trained a bit in San Soo and haven't seen anything else like it. Any ideas, if not San Soo? Mahalo

I would suggest you lurk around more. Also, head over to DHS where there is a training locations thread.

Moved to Newbietown (after realizing this was mikeevo's first post, moved from YMAS [from MABS]).

Uhhhh, I dunno - you might try this place:

That name seems familiar somehow. I also heard this guy trains in Hawaii:

Again, just throwing that out there. I guess it depends on how you define "complete" and 'real".

Sorry for the sarcasm. I actually have no idea if these gyms are anywhere near you, but a bit of google-fu on your part should help anwer that, methinks.

Hee Il Cho's school in Hawaiikai has a good stand up program as well as grappling.

Tell the girl there that the bald guy sent you.

Back to the BJ Penn reference real quick - here's the URL for the actual academy website. BJPenn.com can be a bit... obtuse.

I thought the pit was in CA.

Heh - you are correct! The style is called Hawaiian Kempo, which I guess is what threw mew. Snarkiness retracted, then.

Also, isn't BJ Penn on another island?
