    Question Infinite Insights Boxed Set?

    KENPO FAMILY:

    Looking for a boxed set (if made) of SGM Parker's Infinite Insights series. Is anyone aware of a deal on the set, or even including other books by SGM Parker? I can find them as individual books; but, since I'd like to get them all, I'd rather get a set if they come that way. If not, I'll probably "go green", and buy them one-by-one as used ones in good condition, and as cheaply as possible. Amazon USED to have a package deal with all of the Insights books and (I think) the encyclopedia. They don't anymore...

    THANK YOU!

    i recommend buying them brand new on amazon. they are cheap, no boxed sets that i know of. They started reprinting them last year or the year before so i recommend just buying the new copies all at once, you can also get several of Ed Parkers other books that are also being reprinted.

    I would have to concur with the previous. I think that they are only about $14 dollars each on Amazon. (Not sure about the Encyclopedia). You might get lucky and get a good deal on some used ones but, you will probably be hunting for a while. The reprints are going to be a lot easier to get a hold of.

    I know at one point kenponet was selling them together as a package deal. But, I think you are still better off just ordering them together from Amazon. As a side note, I would recommend also picking up the reprints of Kenpo Karate: Law of the Fist and Secrets of Chinese Karate.

    agreed. get new. used ones aren't going to be much cheaper. and you never know the condition. i have an okay 1, a really beat up 2. 3,4,5 were new... you should be able to find encyclopedia for around $20 new... i picked up a 1960s copy of secrets of chinese karate (not the ones that will fetch $80 and up sadly) for about $8 on amazon (keep an eye out they come around now and then). but it was REALLY rough condition. i think there were newer reissues done.. you can find Kenpo Karate Basics on Ebay for about $10, and they're great quality. me thinks reprints and not authentic. says it comes from mr parker's storage *shrug* Check her Kenpo Karate Basics

    Thanks again for the replies, gang!

    Honestly, I'd like to give my money to someone OTHER than Amazon... someone in the Kenpo family... so, at least the money is going to Kenpo (in some way)... and helping the arts...

    Guess I'll see what Kenponet has going on...

    I didn't check shipping but the per unit price does work out better than Amazon (especially with the Encyclopedia included). Nice find.

    A little more info for anyone with a wholesale account at AWMA... this set DOES NOT qualify for wholesale discounting!

    Honestly, they probably figure you're already getting one of the Insight books for free... so, why would they discount any deeper?

    B-U-T! It's the best deal I've found... and, trust me, I've been looking!

    PLUS, the money at least goes to SOMETHING Martial Arts related... and not just a Book Seller...
