Think about it. Kenpo involves all ranges of fighting and has different styles mixed into the system. MMA is nothing new. Just another hyped craze that will die when something new is born. You never hear about TaeBo anymore, do you?
The MMA fad today involves a certain kind of rigorous training that we don't usually emphasize in Kenpo. It is a full time gig if you are going to compete. I have trained some MMA guys and they had trouble with me because of my Kenpo. I know there are those out there that would have no problem with me, but because Kenpo is so diverse I have had no issues with the MMA guys I have sparred.
Anyway, just my thoughts.
