Thanks for the info on Scott Padgetts. I have been teaching Taekwondo and Hapkido for about 16 years. Took Kung Fu for 1 year. I wonder how I would fit in at a Kenpo Karate school? I had my own TKD school for a number of years.

Art Palmer is also a good instructor. He teaches Ishinru Karate. He is my uncle all though I have never studied it from him my family has and i can tell the work that he has done with them paid off. You should check into a few around here to see what you like before just joining a class. That just my thoughts though. You do as you want to that's just what i would do.

in the martial arts it is easy to pick the flaws from teacher to teacher, but anyone you study from thats had more experience can teach you something. remember we are all students. i've done it for a while now and still feel like a child in my art. but i would imagine the best teacher is one that will push you hard to the point of break and do the same him or herself in return. respect should be a two way street. i have seen some that run there students in the ground and brag about it thats not a good teacher, more of a bully.

i know of one that moved to crossville from sparta. sensei zinskey he is awesome. hes been doing it for a really long time the padgett guy came there a few times and he is also great and in my opinion i would only trust senei zinskey.(not that anything is wrong with other teachers) alot of other teachers would come to the dojo. so he had a good rep. and he is the kind of teacher that will be easy with you and not put you down but he makes sure you know your stuff.
but it really depends on you, and what your interested in doing. me i did alot of different things while i was there and i favored aikido. and i think he was the best teacher for that/me. you should just find a couple diferent teachers and sit in on a few of their classes and figure out whats best for you.
