I trained at Hans Kleimisch's kenpo (Dundalk), Joe Palanzo's kenpo (Pikesville), and Jim Frederick's kenpo (Towson).

Razor trained at Jim Frederick's for a while, too, as well as TKD and Kung Fu at a few different places.

While I haven't been there, Baltimore BJJ is highly recommended.

Yep, I also trained with Joe Palanzo and with Brian Heinz in Cockeysville for a while before training with Jim Frederick.

I believe Jim Frederick teaches Jeff Speakman's Kenpo 5.0 system now that incorporates a lot of BJJ into the striking set they already use.

Good luck with your search.

Whats up all

My I'm Antonie, from Louisiana. I pratice WTF-TKD--if that makes any sense. If not please correct me. I've been in TKD for just over 3.5 years. The first 2.5 years i did alot of competitions but lately i've had to back off because I'm trying to get a PhD in chemistry and just finished my general exam. I'm about get back on the tournament scene and I just got my black belt in december.

I'm a 29 year old import from Ireland. I now live in New York state. I've been out of matial arts for quite a while and really want to get back in.
My main area of experience is in Wing Chun, but I've also done a little jujutsu and Thai Boxing.

I'm looking for a traditional type of class that will allow me to learn strikes as well as grappling. I'm intersted in wooden weapons like the cane and staff and am tired of being afraid to ask about classes that will help me develop my high and jumping kicks! i enjoy that stuff and always got frowned on by othe Wing Chun students for enjoying something that wasn't 'economical'.

I'm 29 DAMMIT, the time i spend in class is supposed to be fun and practical!

Anyway, i was considering ninpo or hapkido. ANyone got any experience in these?

Read the stickies. Take a look in your area, visit some schools to compare, and decide for yourself.

Hi my name is Zach. Ive done wrestling for 5 years. I'm 15 years old and extremely interested in learning more into fighting/self defence. This is my first year at a new high school, and lets just say its alot more rough there. I want more that anything else to become a good fighter, as street fights are more then common at my school. Thats a little about me
