What is Kenpo?

While Kenpo traces its roots to Chinese Martial Arts, Grandmaster Ed Parker is credited with creating the system that is commonly used today.

American Kenpo Karate is considered one of the most comprehensive martial arts system in the world today. It is practical, realistic, and can readily be applied in our society today. Mr. Parker’s Kenpo system encompasses logical principles, and concepts along with kinetic science to create a means of self defense. Mr. Parker had over four decades of experience and contributed much to the martial arts community as a whole.
