    Actually, the discussion about business landscape is directly related to your OP.

    the branch that is in quebec province in canada, called Studios Unis d'auto Défense in french, is still alive in well, thought it did split from villari in 1985 to join cerio's organization so 45 schools and 8000 students in nick cerio's kenpo in canada, so it is certainly not dying everywhere, i started a thread about this, it's being moderated

    I have in the past, for around 20 years. Stopped recently, but still interested in the history. Introduce yourself on the meet&greet section, so we can get to know you a bit better!

    Both.

    BTW, how did I miss this one? Combination of my old geezer eyes and listening to rock that died out a long time ago, I guess.

    I train American Karate. But I've been in and around Kenpo on a part time basis for a loooooong time.
    I liked Nick Cerio, liked his students, too.

    I don't train in anything related to Kempo, but have met some folks who do, and attended seminars. All of which has no bearing on my reasons for being in this thread - I just like talking about martial arts with folks who know stuff about martial arts. I don't really care which art it is.
