    Hello, all. I am new here and just getting back into the martial arts after a long time. I have been reading posts on here for about a month and just registered a few days ago. My experience is mainly in Ed Parker's American Kenpo, but have some experience with Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and even less so with Muay Thai. I have found this to be an excellent resource even if just reading the posts that others put here. I look forward to getting answers and mabe even helping others here.

    Respectfully,

    James

    Yes, I will probably see you over there. Welcome to the world of Kenpo. I started with it back in 1985 at the tender age of 13. I went away for college and have been away for quite a long time as there were no Kenpo schools anywhere near where I live. I am now getting back into it and love it now just as much as I did when I was younger. I guess you never forget your first love.

    Heh, I feel so young when people say things like "back in the year you were born" (1985)

    In all seriousness though I have a similar feeling with Iaido since that's what got me into martial arts, so it's great that my kenpo instructor doubles as an iaido instructor for me :) And having never studied Kenpo until this year I can say that I just love it! I don't recall seeing any kenpo schools around the last two places I lived in NY and IN... I'm really glad one of my friends suggested I look into Kenpo when I moved here and I tried this school out. I'm hooked so far :)
