    Wink Tom Burt - Independence, MO?

    Does anyone here know Tom Burt that teaches at AKKA USA in Independence, MO on here? If you do, have you ever attended any of this classes?

    I am asking because I am looking for the best American Kempo school in the Kansas City, MO metro area but their are only two that I know of within a reasonable distance of my house. There is his school and a school on Broadway in Westport (if it is still open because I never see anyone come in or out of that building anymore).

    I am looking for someone that not only teaches American Kempo but has a program where I can be "pushed" to a new level.

    Don't get me wrong I LOVE my current school and will ALWAYS practice the style that I currently practice but I am looking to compliment my style with other variations of Kenpo/Kempo as well. Specifically ones that will push me a little harder.

    Thanks in advance for ANY information or advice.

    This is what I found. Looks like you can get more info by contacting them. I think this is the best way.

    I had already gone to the site. In fact, I already know someone that attends his classes. But that person is a young child and feel as though their enthusiasm about the instructer is great to see but I wanted to speak to an adult that can be a little more objective and answer some of my specific questions.

    Writing the site only gets the standard answers such as:

    We meet these nights
    We practice X style
    We have been around for X years

    But I need someone that can answer questions that I can not ask the instructors personally.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I see, well maybe you can go check it out. From your recent posts about training they might not be hardcore enough tho. Good Luck!
