Kenpo Go Shin Jitsu School
17144 E 14th St, Hayward, CA 94541
Owned and operated by one of the truly last of the "old school" East Bay martial arts...Professor John Masculine!
Nearly a life-long student of the late Master Robert Gaylord, who taught a hard-hitting self-defense method, Professor John carries on the legacy...progressive without compromising tradition.
If you're looking for a "self edifying, ego boosting, trophy/belt and competition-type school", then look elsewhere...
I rated the school "exceptional" because it is really an "exception" to what's available nowadays.
