    Default Hello everyone 8-)

    I was a member of Kenpotalk about a couple of years ago but left after I had to stop my training in Kosho Ryu Kempo due to a change in shifts, going to 3rd shift. Also I felt since leaving I didn't have anything to bring to the table. Now Im anxious to return to the martial arts. Unfortunately I have a bad feeling that my old school has closed since Im not able to bring up their website lately. I do have a few other schools that I can look into but Im not sure if they are Kempo or Kenpo styles. Either way if I find the right school, Im going to jump into it. For me, it's unfinished business. I want to be successful at something and have a sense of accomplishment. One thing that I won't do this time around is second guess my abilities, especially at exam time. Once I do find a school, which will probably be in a few month or so, I'll let everyone here know so I can get some much needed advice. Thank you and good luck with your training.....Steve

    Thanks for the welcome. I trained at Shorei Dojo in Merrillville, Indiana under Sensei Mike Jensen. I had the best time there. Still regret leaving but it was hard to keep my training schedule and work 3rd shift. Hopefully this time around I can juggle both. Either that or go on my nights off......Steve

    Yeah...bills suck! LOL. Welcome back though. It's never to late to take it back up again. Many of us get sidelined by life, but we always come back.

    Hello Midnite Warrior,

    I'm not sure if you already know this, but I'm sure you'd appreciate it if you don't. Sensei Mike Jensen is teaching Kosho at the Oshinkan Aikido dojo in Merrillville. Here is the link to the dojo:

    Best of luck.
