In 8 wks im moving to either Las Vegas or Calgary. Its not 100% yet. I want to continue my training in Traditional Martial Arts. I have a black belt in Shorin Ryu Karate.

I have been thinking about Shotokan, Chito Ryu or maybe Kyokushin. TKD is also an option for me as i like to use my kicks.


Can anyone recommend a gym for me from experience? or just who is the LEGIT in the area.

Karate or TKD?

They are very active in competition scene. Not sure how well the students do but they have tough fighters. The head instructor is also a referee. Dont know how many they sent over the weekend for the All American Championships. It was a deep talent pool this year because placing means you qualify for the WC in Japan this Nov.

No problem, mang. Hope you enjoy your time with Kyokushin if you decide on Calgary. Cant help you with the others, though, sorry. I'm in NY and the only reason I know about the Calgary dojo is because they are the same organization (IKO1) as our dojo.
