    Professor Jorgensens Kempo Karate in Las Vegas, NV

    I searched the forums a couple of times but couldn't find any other info about this, so i thought this might be an appropriate thread to start.


    A controversial martial artist from Sweden has migrated to Las Vegas.

    He calls it Goshin-ryu Kempo in Sweden, but for marketing purposes it is known as Professor Jorgensen's Kempo Karate in the US.

    Jorgen Jorgensen is the founder of the art and has a total of 46dan. The highest beeing 8dan in his own martial art Goshin-ryu Kempo. He has new titles every now and then, like Renshi or shihan and this time it's Kyoshi and Professor.

    I dont have time to write more now, but i'll give you guys more info later today.

    Until then, has this guy been discussed on these forums before?
    What are your opinions based on the website?

    Do a search on Kenpo/Kempo; it's not a particularly well regarded style by Bullies. That a Kenpoka might suck is not exactly big news.

    I can't find a location for this guy on his sight. If I find it, I'll go pay him a visit and report back what I find.

    Ok here is some more info about the self proclaimed Professor:

    I trained this bullshido/mcdojo art for 2-3 years. Took me about a month to realize it was bullshido, but I stayed because of the excercise and the friends I had there. Plus some of the moves were cool looking and flashy. Wich was fun, actually. :)

    The problem is that he tells people that it's a practical and effective form of self defence.

    Wich it is definately not.

    Sometimes in Swedish internet forums he even says that it's "among the most effective forms of selfdefence there is".
    When someone asks for videos of the sparring he just replies " Come to us and see for yourself".

    Well.. I HAVE seen it for myself, for 2-3 years. And there is no sparring, no aliveness whatsoever except for when they do newaza. Wich is not very often. Once a month maybe.

    One time when I had the orange belt (same belts as in judo), two new people joined the club. Two months later they had the BROWN belt! And suddenly they were instructing me. They were ofcourse very poor instructors, and had obviously no previous martialarts experience at all.
    It was like having two randomly picked people from the street trying to teach somebody an "effective form of selfdefence". :bssign:

    So thats about the time I got pissed of and quit for good.

    This was like 6 years ago but it would be awesome to hear your opinions, like if someone visited the Las Vegas school and wrote about it :)
