    There are a few people that teach various methods of Kenpo in Houston, TX. Corpus is about 4 hrs away, I tried to look up the Jeff Townsend guy when I first moved here 12 yrs ago and never could find him. Mr. McCord is here, Mr. Smith, Mr. Braughton, My self and maybe a few other sleepers I'm not aware of. You can see a list of those that I know in the Houston area and throughout Texas at my website.

    www.houstonkenpo.com

    my email address and phone number are listed on there as well...

    Kind Regards, Jason Bugg

    There is also a kenpo school in Spring Texas, if that is closer. Kenpo Taijutsu (EPAK-TRA-CO is base system) with other practical elements added in to the course of instruction.

    Good Luck

    I live in Alief and Spring is too far. JBKenpo, where are you located? I know Mr. McCord is in Sugar Land which is the closest for me.

    SW Houston...

    My wife graduated from U of H with a degree in accounting. Mr. Smith lives in the Alief area, right off of Dairy Ashford (and is one of my previous instructors). His system is a variation on the Kenpo base system. My thought is that everything is too far in Houston. I traveled to Spring, TX for training for a couple of years (45 miles each way) twice a week. I had a young man (Steven) that traveled from Humble to train with me each week (before he left for college, and I'm very proud of him), and that had to be 50 miles plus each way. Kenpo and convenience is seldom synonymous (especially in Houston), at least I've never found it to be. I can't promise to be the best or the most convenient, and I won't apologize for gut busting training sessions, but I will provide a non-ego driven environment and a group that is friendly and has good spirit. If you're interested in setting up an interview and our schedules jive, drop me a line. Good luck on your search.

    Hey brother. You know me, right? If you can get in contact with Michael Billings, he knows a lot of Kenpo instructors in TX. He should be able to help.
