Sooo...... We went and watched a class at the Okinawan kenpo class tonight. We liked it a lot. The instructor is very good and explaining why they do certain moves and what they are good for etc... He also would stop a student and correct them if they were doing something wrong. They did katas and then broke them down move by move and he showed what he move actually is/does etc. Their art includes grappling, throws and joint locks which is cool. They did two types of sparring today, one type was predetermined moves (like only 3 or 4 moves were allowed) so they could get familiar with what he thought them. The other type was not restricted at all (besides obvious stuff like eye gouging etc) but he wanted them to implement what they were taught tonight into the sparring. I would say the sparring was kinda light to medium contact. He said higher belts have more contact but it's always controlled. Oh, and the best part is the class is free! We are going to attend class on Thursday.
