    Default EPAK In The Raleigh NC area

    I am planning to relocate from the Boston area to the Raleigh NC area, and am looking for American Kenpo schools in that area (currently a Black 2nd, and hopefully less that a year away from testing for my 3rd degree). I unfortunatley have only been able to identify a single school in the Raleigh area - the TRIANGLE KENPO INSTITUTE which is affiliated with the IKCA, and holds classes only once a week.

    Are any of you familiar with other schools in that area, and whaqt can you tell me of the IKCA?

    Regards,
    Rich

    I believe Mr. Zach Whitson may have a school in the area. When I spoke with him at a seminar in October I believe he said he was moving to that area. Maybe someone else here can confirm that. I looked at his site, but did not find anything.

    bdparsons is a member of this forum and is the instructor for that school. Send him a PM. He'll be happy to answer any of your questions.

    Mr. Parsons is an excellent instructor. I've known him for about a year now and have had the pleasure of working out with him twice (the second time he put a knot on my forehead with a back knuckle LOL )

    The IKCA was founded by Chuck Sullivan and Vic LeRoux. You can find out more by visiting their website. www.thekarateconnection.com
    Every time I've called, Vic picks up the phone. He will also be happy to answer your questions.

    The correct url for the IKCA is www.karateconnection.com

    Be glad to talk to you and give you a heads-up on what's available and fill you in on what the IKCA is about. Check your PM for my phone number.

    Respects,
