Default Will the Nikon CP8700 work well for action shots?

I can't decide if I want to go DSLR with the Canon Digital Rebel or with more of a P & S with the Nikon 8700. I haven't used a SLR in years and wasn't that great with it! I want something that will capture & freeze action shots. I have a HP 850 and if someone moves the picture is blurry. I want to take pictures of my son in Karate, etc. I was pretty sure I was going to go Digi Rebel as I know it will be able to capture sports action, but I like what I have been reading regarding the CP8700.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

It is f2.8 at wide and f4.2 at telephoto. Those arenít numbers that are going to stop a lot of action. Get the DSLR.
