    Default kenpo in bourbonnais, Il

    Hello Kenpo Family, my name is Bernie Gorak II, and I own & operate the Academy of Kenpo Karate in Bourbonnais, IL. This is about 50 miles south of Chicago.
    The style I teach is Gorak's universal Kenpo Karate- I have trained withe Chuck Sullivan & Vic Leroux, but I moved to a different style of Kenpo. It is a long story and not worth going into.

    Welcome. How far along in the IKCA system did you get?

    Greetings and salutations. Welcome to KT.

    The Kan Shu Kenpo distance learning system is taught by a Soke Cazatt and a Sifu Fournier. They both claim "Kenpo" rank but I can not find any info on their kenpo backgrounds and their names don't "ring a bell."

    http://renzokujiujitsu.tripod.com/blackbelt/id7.html

    I would like to know more about this system in order to foster better communication and understanding. Would you mind filliing us in a little more? The site says it is most similar to "American Kenpo" combining aspects with "Chinese Kenpo." Do you know who they may have attained their Kenpo rank through? That might help us to better understand a little more about your system and style of kenpo.

    Thanks!
