You know Sir, I'm not saying it won't happen, but if it does, it won't be for a while yet. My current instructor has just too much to share, for me to leave anytime soon. I'm sort of guessing that I have the same feeling for my instructor, as you might have had for Mr. Parker after the first time he instructed a class you were in.

I will say this though, for it to happen, the level of arrogance in American Kenpo schools here in Australia, would have to drop off quite substantially!
However, having said that I must admit I do love the system, and the way things are done in AK. I still attend any and all seminars that I can.

The strangest thing though, is that so many of the techniques in the advanced levels are so similar to ones that I have seen in AK, I just do the version, I already have commited to muscle memory.


I was just joshin with you a little. If you love where you are..... then by all means stay till you feel a need to go elsewhere! You have a great attitude and are keeping an open eye to everything so keep at it mate!! I don't know about the attitudes of anyone around you in your country but there are plenty of us that I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy quite well and learn a lot from if and when the time arises......

When the student is ready the teacher will appear.

Keep up the good work and study your Art to it's fullest.

First I would like to say hello to all the people on this board. I am new here. So hello all. :) :asian: I study Chinese Kempo Karate and was told by my instructor that it has roots from Mitose, Shaolin Kempo, and Traditional Okinawan. Well just thought I would say hello. :asian:

Tracy's, and looking for an excellent kicking art!
Any suggestions?
Hey he asked for a kicking art, not a martial art or self defense system!! Hence the reply he got:rofl: :rofl:
Why is it you compare something like that with kenpo? There's no need to:shrug:
