At purple you have enough Kenpo knowledge to start to see your own preferences. View your preferences and follow your life's experiences. Decide what you need for your personal jorney and pick the group that seems closest to that.
Priorities for research?
1)Teaching style versus your learning style
2)Quality of info not quantity
3)Are the students enjoying themselves
4)Are the students working as hard as intend to?
5)Group open to questions and different perspectives?
6)Are they interested in both you and your check, or just your check?
Questions to ask instructors?
1) What to do you stress when you teach?
2) What are your requirements(then cross-reference this with other places to see exactly what you're in store for)?
3) Do people follow there own pace or do you push them (happy medium here)?
All the best in your research.
