    My thanks, Mr. Bishop! They are a bit aways from me but I will go check them out and see if the distance and traffic will be a problem to get to the school and take some classes.

    I apologize for not catching this sooner, but I want to give a quick plug for Lim's Hawaii Kenpo Karate.

    I visited it in Feb of 2006 during their Ohana celebration. It was a very good facility, the students, instructors, and owners are very nice. (Thank you again for your hospitality Professor George Lim and Sigung Patrice Lim).

    As for the other locations, I haven't been there and can't comment either way.

    If you have the chance, I highly recommend a visit to Lim's Hawaii Kenpo.

    Any of the schools in the Phoenix, AZ area that follow GM Sotelo's teachings? Fi Kuen if memory serves?

    I only got to train with him a few times but I really enjoyed that style of training. IE Nit and gritty ;)

    I have tried contacting him a few times since moving to AZ to check on him and see if his foot has healed up but he hasn't responded to the voice mails yet.

    He's got a couple instructors in Yuma under him. Don't think he has anyone in the Phoenix area.

    Well I got in touch with GM Sotelo tonight. He has a few students that live in the Phoenix valley that he is going to put me in touch with. Also found out he will be coming down to Gilbert, a suburb of Phoenix, in October for a seminar.

    Again thank you GM Bishop for your help. I just wanted to give you an update.

    West Valley, Phoenix and the entire East valley are chuck full of Kaju/Kenpo/Kempo schools. Many of them are word of mouth advertising and often unlisted, which can make it a challenge to track them down. I have been into Lim's school, KajuAZ and NAK, as well as a few other Kaju schools in the area.
