Tribute Page

American Kenpo Karate Founder and to my Instructors present and past.

American Kenpo Karate

(Kenpo - Law of the Fist, Karate - Empty Hand)

The "Ed Parker System of Kenpo", also known as American Kenpo, is one of the most comprehensive and contemporary systems taught today. Ed Parker was considered a pioneer in the martial arts field. Unafraid to make changes and enhancements to the martial arts, he literally disassembled, analyzed, and rebuilt a martial art to fit today's environment.

Kenpo's emphasis is on practical self-defense. Kenpo blends the linear kicks and punches found in many Japanese systems, with circular movements of re-direction and countering that are common in Chinese Kung Fu. It also uses Escrima concepts in teaching weapon use and defense, while taking from both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and small-circle Jiu-Jitsu those elements needed to round out the practitioner's skills. This allows the Kenpo practitioner to choose appropriate responses for varying situations.

In Kenpo the focus is on speed of action and accuracy over pure power. The System is based on Logic and practicality, utilizing a rapid succession of strikes in a logical sequential order, gaining the maximum effect with minimum effort. By combining the use of hard and soft movements, Kenpo is ideal for children, teens, woman and men of all ages and fitness levels.
