There it transitioned well into Kenpo relatively well since hand movements were virtually identical. I did that for most of my young adult and even competed and won state for my division.
Does Kenpo incorporate a ground game? The one thing I don't like about Karate is that it has a lot of flash but very ineffective when taken to the ground, which is where a lot of fights tend to go if you're fighting someone with experience.
