    Might be a bit of a drive for you, but also host some great seminars at the school.

    Rev, there is also also a good school in South Windsor (may be a little closer, 45 minutes, but not much ) Clayton's Kenpo Karate. WKKA affiliated. Lance is actually on the WKKA board and hosts a great annual Kenpo seminar. Not sure if you are looking for American Kenpo, Tracy Kenpo, Chinese Kenpo, etc...

    There is also a Kensho-Ryu Kenpo Karate in Webster, Mass. I think that is about 34 minutes away. Not sure who the instructor is there, but I belive they are teaching Mark Sheely's system. He was a top student of Nick Cerio.

    There are quite a few places, depending on how far you wanted to travel. Lets see, you have:

    www.mkks.com (I train here) A few of the insts. myself included have a Parker Kenpo background.

    www.baranskenpo.com Jim is a good guy. Affiliated with Joe Palanzo.

    In Gales Ferry, you have Kajukenbo.

    Paul Mills, AKKI, has a school here as well.

    These are in addition to whats already been listed.

    Mike

    Sorry Mike, did not mean to leave out those schools. I figured anything over a hour drive might be too far.

    I had mentioned CMA may even be too far.

    Rev, if you are willing to drive the distance there are even more options, too. You may have to look at MA and RI, too.

    PS- hope all is well!

    Than you everyone.
    I am looking forward to getting out and seeing the schools.
    I am looking for an Ed Parker Kenpo school but I will be
    open minded in my travels. Cost and travel is prohibitive
    but it doesn't cost to visit. ;o)

    Mike, did MKKS change their curriculum? Prof. Lowery used to teach more of the Tracy system.

    The latest changes, have consisted of moving some techs around, some to different belt levels, some removed altogether and some 'old' ones have been brought back to life and added in, in various belt levels. AFAIK, all of the techs are Tracy, although the way we do them, compared to the way a full Tracy school does them, may vary.

    Most recently, Lynette has aligned with Joe Palanzos group. However, I do not believe that the school is changing to a Parker school. I believe this is simply to offer the higher ranks, a taste of some Parker Kenpo. A few times, when I've taught a day time class, I've shown some Parker techs., simply as a comparison to show the differences, but also the similarities, between the 2 arts.

    Most EPAK schools will be about an hour from you. I'll throw a couple out there for you. I train at Designed Defense in Manville, RI. We learn the 24 tech EPAK curriculum as it is laid out in Infinite Insights. Our instructor, Kim Deacon, is top notch. She cares about the art and teaching it in an effective manner. Tuition is inexpensive, as it is not a form of income for her. Another great option a little less than an hour from you is David Staples' Kenpo Karate in Worcester, MA. Mr. Staples is a top notch practitioner and teacher, who has a deep passion for the art. His school also features the 24 tech system.

    I don't have any personal experience with the schools in CT, so I can't offer any suggestions there, but by all means go and visit, take a class or two and see how you like them. If you'd like to come by my school and check it out, shoot me a PM. Good luck!

    As mentioned above, Lance Clayton's school is great. I know Lance through the WKKA. I am actually Mr. Joe Palanzo's student. Mr. Palanzo is the president of the WKKA, anyway I have taken several seminars with Mr. Clayton and he is full og knowledge. The only thing would be how far you are willing to drive.

    I realize this thread is a little out of date, but I figured I would also ask. I am in search of a Planas/Wedlake lineage school in CT or surrounding states. Any help in this area would be appreciated greatly.
