Looking for a school or instructor in Portland, OR.
« on: June 09, 2009, 12:34:36 AM »
Hello all,

I am currently looking for an instructor in the Portland area. I have been training in Krav Maga a few hours a week for the last year, and although I enjoy it, I think that I am missing a several important things. Through much reading, originally centering on Kenpo, I came upon this site and several others focused on Kajukenbo. I have found a few people in the area that I might be able to start working with, but one is taking a break from teaching, and several of the listed schools for the area seem to be closed or are not accepting students. I have talked to Sifu Trent Junker, and hopefully we can connect at some point. If anyone has any other contacts in the area, I would appreciate it. I have a great respect for your art and history, and I hope to begin practicing it at some point.

Thank you in advance

Hello Dane,

I can't find what I did with your phone number.  Give me a call and we can chat.  I teach in Portland and know all the local instructors.  I am sure together we can find the right teacher/school depending on your location, available times, etc.
