Anyone familiar with the Universal Kempo Karate style/organization? I discovered a nearby school that teaches. I only have Japanese Karate experience and know very little about other styles, let alone Kempo.

Somewhat, I trained in a school (about 12 months) that broke away from them over teaching differences, but they kept the same or similar curriculum. They follow the Godin, Chow, Mitose line. From what I remember, Godin and Ed Parker both trained under Chow.

From what I remember, it was pretty close in work, with a large curriculum (one technique for one attack). The black belts were pretty solid and fast. We started weapons work at white belt, and of course, used the "ultra-cool" black gis. The school I went to had a heavy focus on physical conditioning so the first 20 minutes of class was a workout session and there was a PT component to the belt tests.

I appreciate that.
I was merely investigating the various styles that have emerged in the region. Video shows they do spar but very similar to videos Ive seen of Kajukenbo
