Q. What is Kenpo?

A.  

Kenpo's  

roots  

are  

based  

in  

the  

Chinese  

Martial  

Arts,  

However  

it  

has  

been  

highly  

modified  

by  

people  

like  

Mr.  

Ed  

Parker,  

and  

Mr.

John  

M.  

LaTourrett,  

(who  

was  

a  

student  

of  

the  

late  

Ed  

Parker).

As  

a  

result  

of  

the  

modifications,  

the  

Kenpo  

system  

is  

one  

of  

the  

most

efficient,  

effective,  

and  

pragmatic  

of  

the  

Martial

Arts  

taught  

today.  

It  

is  

practical,  

realistic,  

and  

can  

easily  

be  

applied  

to  

any  

situation.

Kenpo  

has  

been  

the  

subject  

of  

many  

magazine  

articles,  

and  

books.  

Kenpo  

is  

recognized  

as  

one  

of  

the  

most  

complete  

systems  

of

self-defense and personal development available to day.

Kenpo believes that a fight happens in four stages. Stage 1 Verbal, this is where the yelling and name calling happens. if you are good at defusing the situation you can win the fight here at stage one. Police officers are excellent at stage one. Stage 2 This is where the sucker punch, the hair grab, the push, etc. happen. If you have practiced and are good at your self-defense techniques you can and win the fight at stage two. Stage 3 This is where, if your stage two move doesn’t work, it turns into a sparring match where both people are on guard and ready. Now you need to be a better fighter than your opponent. Stage 4 Ground fighting. If stage three last for more than say a minute, then the fight will go to the ground. Q. Who studies Kenpo?

A.  

We  

have  

students  

from
