Kenpo Taijutsu will give you the tools to develop self confidence and self control. This is accomplished through a proven system of self defense training. Students develop the ability to protect themselves, their family, and friends. The student gains self discipline, increased attention span, and a new level of physical fitness. As coordination, flexibility, and self defense skills increase the students become confident and extremely skilled.
What is Kenpo Taijutsu? It is a blend of 4 Martial Arts - Kenpo, Budo Taijusu, Kuk Sool Won, and Judo.
Kenpo is still the base of the art, this means that Kenpo Karate is still the primary focus of this style and we teach the Eastern Kenpo Karate Societies system of Ed Parkers American Kenpo as taught by 8th degree Black Belt Master Brint Berry and TRACO system techniques, and as Kenpo should be, it continues to evolve. Joint locking and breaking technique have been added for controlling purposes and we have added ground training, arm bars, and choking technique from Judo. The purpose of this is to solidify the student knowledge base. Occasionally, the fight ends up on the ground and its important to be able to defend from this area also. Students are encouraged to add extensions to the techniques and work closely with each other and the instuctor. This type of training gives the student a real working knowledge of the self defense technique and helps them to develop proper distancing, timing, energy transference, balance interuptions, and entrapments. However, control is still very important and encouraged.
I left the other programs on the site to further explain what it is we do. However, what we teach on Monday and Wednesday is Kenpo Taijutsu. Judo is still taught on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
"When I am gone, I hope that people won't try to traditionalize my Art. I want you to always remember that Kenpo will always be the Art of Perpetual Change. If you remember this, then the Art will never become obsolete because it will change with the times." GRANDMASTER ED PARKER
The evolution has begun!
