    Default Upgrading School Listing System, Need Your Help

    I'm in the process of redesigning the school listing section.

    What I'd like to do is allow people to submit schools, with both a free basic listing, and various paid levels of enhanced listing (like phone book say).

    I'm looking to include the ability to search by region and particular branch of Kenpo.

    Heres what I need:

    - Suggestions on fields to search on.
    - Names of Kenpo Branches, such as Parkers, Tracy, etc.

    The final system will be similar to the one on MartialTalk.

    Thanks!

    I would suggest: Style, Location, Lineage/Association.

    Sounds like a good and useful service.

    What are the chances of also listing, probably in a seperate section, people who are looking to form workout groups, unlicensed and/or unafiliated schools?

    You mean something like a "Training Partners Wanted" system?

    For some, we can put a blank field in there for affiliations, and a check box for school/club/group?

    Sure. Anything like that would be helpful to thoe of us out in the vast, uncharted wilderness. We're more likely to find scrub brush than full blooming schools.

    I'm not sure. Something that educates, informs and drives traffic?

    Definitely time to bring this thread back to the forefront. We need to have a good school listing on this site.

    Please post your school name, location, head instructor and style, and anything else you think is pertinent

    Here is my submission for the 5.0 school in San Antonio:
    Jeff Speakman's Kenpo Karate 5.0
    San Antonio, TX
    Lead Instructor: Truitt Wieland
    Address: 6111 TEZEL ROAD SUITE #105
    SAN ANTONIO, TX 78250
    Phone: 210.680.2467
    http://www.jeffspeakmantexas.com/

    Here is my submission for a (not necessarily "kenpo") training group:
    Impact Mixed Martial Arts Training Club
    No head instructor...it's a club where everyone learns by teaching
    Boxing, kick boxing, clinch fighting, jujitsu, sambo and a smattering of other systems.
    visit: http://www.impactmma.org
    Kerrville, Texas
    All other contact information is on the website or the club forum...links from the webiste.

    Thank you, Mr. Hubbard for making this such an invaluable resource. Definately the best board I've seen on the internet.

    I regret that I neither teach nor teach kenpo, however best wishes in this fine endeavour. Finding quality training is difficult, especially for the frequent traveller and such a listing may aid the enthusiast in their journey.
