So what makes Kenpo Kwai style so different?
Our Kenpo is a very straight forward way to learn self defence. The basics can be learnt quite quickly. It is practical and designed for devastating workability; we develop and use the hands and feet equally to meet the student’s ability. There is nothing practiced in Kenpo that will not be used in an actual ‘real life’ situation, unlike other styles where you can spend valuable hours learning a set routine like a dance that has no practical use whatsoever. Our style is characterised by its fluid grace, lightning speed, versatility and awesome effectiveness.
Jeff Speakman the star of the Kenpo film, ‘PERFECT WEAPON’ amongst others, was taught Kenpo by Ed Parker in America, who also taught Elvis Presley and Bruce Lee [who was profoundly influenced by the style] Jeff stated that Kenpo is the ‘SCIENCE OF STREET FIGHTING’.
Train the mind and temper the body
In Kenpo we use our brains as well as our brawn. We learn how to use our minds as well as our bodies, success in all forms of conflict, from the school playground, to the boardroom, and especially the street, is about keeping a cool head when all around you people are losing theirs.
