    well...kenpo sucks, i learned this recently

    kenpo is a waste of time, 3 months was all it took.

    hour classes where 30 min of it was warming up, then the rest of the class doing air punching and kicking...

    im all set, if im gonna train i wanna train! and for 85 a month im not getting what i feel is a complete workout or skill training...

    so as of now, maybe ill take kenpo later in life but for now im considering a judo class for grappling and boxing/kickboxing for striking

    any ideas or for that matter when do you realize kenpo is bullshit

        1) Grappling + striking doesn't equal mma. It's more than the sum of its parts.

        B) Find a boxing gym.

            Similarly.........2) Judo does not = grappling (unless there is a heavy focus on ne waza training, which there usually isn't)

            B) find a BJJ, submission grappling, or Jujitsu school.

              1) Great hand strikes
              2) Great conditioning
              3) Pisses off Omega

                Out of curiousity which branch of Kenpo did you train in? I'm keeping a tally to figure out what the exact percentage of Ke?po is bull. Was it under the Parker system?

                    You, sir, are an idiot.

                    And I support boxing also, merely for the omega effect :angry4:

                      This is practically identical to the BJJ doesn't work thread that popped up today... only slightly more polite.

                        Judo is still grappling.

                        It's focus isn't always necessarily in groundfighting though.

                        Personally I see nothing wrong with boxing/kickboxing taken w/ Judo. No matter what the school the chances are its a drastic improvement over what you were taking before.

                          nick cerios...

                          also id like to add, the main instructor knew his shit, he was good! but he didnt teach , he jus ran it and showed things when he peaked in and out, he did the initial training and i was impressed to the point where this is what i was gonna learn...but after 3 days of him i was fed to 2 overweight females who r brown belts showing techniques and a black belt instructor who was handpicked from the main cat who knew his shit but was eh....

                              I studied cerio's when I was in high school, got to blue belt before leaving for college. Point Sparring, kata, extremely unrealistic SD, got to learn a cool nunchuk form though....at least it was cool when I was 16.

                              If your instructors good, you may be able to speak with him after class and let him know what your goals are, he may ...........actually, screw that, go take some Thai, Boxing, and Kickboxing class and/or some grappling if you want some active resistance and want to learn how to fight and take a punch.

                              Nuh uh!! Your mom is.......anyway, YES Judo is "grappling", but some schools focus more on the nage (throws and take downs) since that is often the quickest way to end the competition matches. However, if you take a Judoka and a BJJ guy of equal skill in their respective arts and have them grapple to submission, my money is on Mr. BJJ...so long as his shoulder does not get separated from the suinage (sp?) he will have to endure in getting to the ground.......to grapple.
