    You need to find a good school. Never sign a contract and never pay for rank testing.

    Also, a black belt may take longer than 2 years. That is about the average time it would take at a McDojo. Do not be discouraged by this, rank means nothing. You are learning an art because you desire the knowledge, not the rank.

    Also, Dojang are Korean. Dojo are Japanese.

    Good luck!

    Check your phone book or Martial Arts Supply in your area for a Kenpo Karate School. To get a look at Kenpo in action try youtube.com and enter Kenpo demos in the search box, you could also enter a few names like Jeff Speakman, Larry Tatum or Ed Parker.

    A search engine will also take you to many Kenpo web-sites and you’ll find in-depth information. I have been learning and teaching the Art of Kenpo for a little over 10 years now. Truly an awesome self defense system with devastating techniques, nothing else compares too it in the past 30 years of my training.

    Good luck..

    A good well rounded style would be freestyle Karate.You will learn stand up,ground,grappling and weapons.What a lot of people don’t understand is that freestyle Karate is about practical street defence not who can kick the highest or punch a pad the hardest.It’s definitely not a sport martial art like TKD or BJJ.The motto of my style is the best of everything in progression.Basically that means we don’t care where the technique comes from we improve it and integrate it into our style while still maintaining tradition as do most freestyle Karate’s.
    The hardest thing is finding a good experienced instructor.I would recommend Bushi Kai or Zen Do Kai, but if your not in Australia or New Zealand you may have some difficulty finding some one who teaches these styles.These styles also usually have separate classes available to everyone in Muay Thai and BJJ/Submission/Shoot wrestling.If you can’t find one of these i would suggest Kempo or Enshin or another freestyle Karate.
