    Koei-Kan can be translated from Japanese to "Prosper with Happiness." Sounds bad ass....
    All those guys have a crazy ability to control distance. :bowdown:

    You can train under jack savat he was the first person to train chuck lidell in koei kan. Jack Savat trained under the founder for awhile and trained with brian frost. In terms of karate chuck lidell has a hell of a pedigree.

    when you watch chuck lidell fight you can tell he trained in koei can because the style focuses a lot on body movements and setting up all of your strikes by hitting weird angles that are hard to defend. His looping hooks that every one talks about isnt a hook at all its a move called furiuchi. In boxing they call it a rabbit punch. Your aiming for spots like the temple so you can stun them or get a flash knock down.
    daido juku is the shit they had these events in the 80s called the wars. it was bassically an mma event they were bloody as shit. I posted some videos awhile back in the cage ill repost it now its a video my freind mikey made

    kempo takes alot of things from karate, but a lot of things from other places as well.

    Daido Juku is awesome. It's like Kyokushin but with jiujitsu.

    I wish there was either one near me. :(

    kempo is the japanese equivalent to the name kung fu. Theres alot of different styles of kung fu grappeling, styles that focus on hands, ones that are more geared toward kicks etc. Its just a generic term that covers alot of different martial arts.

    in koei kan the double leg take down is taught and is part of the nagi no kata. In fact koei kan incorporates alot of throws and take downs concidering that the founder of the martial art was one of jigoro kanos students. In the style your main weapon is going to be your body movement and your striking to wear them down and or open them up. Your bassically looking for the one shot you need to finish the fight your not looking to keep it going as long as possible. When you finally get your oppertunity or create your oppertunity you take it and then use one of the other techniques to finish ie a stomp like wandy or some shit like that.

    If you get clinched up hugged or your being overwhelmed then koei kan practitioners use the throws and take downs from the system as a last means of defense. We train them all hip throws, double legs, foot sweeps etc
