    Gus Sergakis is who you were thinking of in the columbus area. He does not pursue any students at this time. He is too busy tied up at work. There are a couple of guy's who broke away from Mr. Hatfield's studio several years back. One is Tim Hysell & the other is Larry Splain. All 3 of the...

    If I'm not mistaken I think that rep. here in Ohio is in the toledo area. That's upper north west of the state towards Michigan. Could be wrong though.

    Looking for a school in Northeast Ohio

    Sure thing & I hope that it's a great school. This is why I was hoping that others would have responded on my thread below. It would be very easy to know there are quality people out there so that we, (as kenpoists) felt confident in directing a student towards a studio in their area. The only...

There are 4 that drive a great distance for their 2 classes a month. I realize our gas prices are on the rise, time also play's a factor in what...

    I have personally never heard of him. Doesn't mean he is not a good instructor. I looked at his website & to me, it looked very vague. I wish you luck with your pursuit of kenpo.

    I'm sorry but I don't know any in that area. I teach in Lexington which would be a drive for you. Mr. Doyle is quite north of you as well. Unfortunately you are in between anybody I personally know. Take a look at the thread I started & hopefully that will help with your question.

    How far would you travel to train......

    My class is once a month. I teach semi privately at my own facility 4 days a week. When I was training once a week my drive time was 50 minutes from work then 30 back home. Guess we're not comparing complete apples to apples so to speak. Then again, there's roughly a 5hr. class w/Mr. Planas...
