    I am looking to begin martial arts in the Las Vegas area. I just moved here and am looking for a Shorin-Ryu school here that does not teach hybridized mixed martial arts. Can anyone help?

    I, personally, don't know any Shorin-Ryu folks out in Vegas but I do know of a Shuri-Ryu dojo that is run by my previous instructor's son. Depending on how involved you have been with Shorin-Ryu previously you could certainly make the transition into Shuri-Ryu--I'm actually transitioning from Shuri-Ryu to Shorin-Ryu, myself. That said, you could also look here: http://www.dojolocator.com/Nevada/LasVegas/

    Thank you so much for the quick reply. I am kinda set on Shorin-Ryu (unless this post turns out to be a bust... LOL). I have searched and asked everywhere. Apparently, there are people who have take Shorin-Ryu, but are developing their "own style". I'll just have to wait and see if anyone else can help. Thanks again...

    Well, over time I think everyone develops "their own style" to a degree. That said, if you're ever in Phoenix I know exactly where you can go for Shorin-Ryu :p. Good luck!

    Why don't you check out our school,the Jeff Speakman Kenpo 5.0 World Training Center here in Las Vegas? Mr. Speakman in a 8th degree Black Belt in Kenpo as well as a Black Belt in Goju Ryu. He is also a world famous martial artist and movie star a.k.a. "The Perfect Weapon".Mr. Speakman personally teaches most of the classes. Kenpo 5.0 is a very well rounded fighting system and included weapons training (knife and stick) as well as ground fighting.Here's some links below.
