"Tis the presence of the dragon that imparts the sacred spirit,
tis the presence of virtue when one is truly rich"
Chuan Fa Kenpo is a system of practical and modern self-defense designed to offer the student a realistic training regimen that combines blocking, striking, kicking, throwing, and control techniques for defense against commonly occurring self defense situations without the fear of being injured. It is not a system of sport designed for points or trophies. Students find the classes challenging both physically and mentally as they work toward the rank of Black Belt. Nothing in life that is of substance is achieved without much effort and Chuan Fa Kenpo is an art for self disciplined and determined people who enjoy being challenged. Itís not right for everyone but it may be perfect for you.
Chuan Fa is a Chinese term that means to grasp the laws of nature and use them in a learned way. This philosophy lies at the heart of the system and is the foundation of the art. The original founders of Kenpo combined the most effective techniques of Karate, Kung Fu, Jujitsu, Boxing and Escrima into a self defense system that is adaptable and applicable to any situation. The lineage of Chuan Fa Kenpo can be traced back to the Kajukenbo and CHA3 Kenpo schools of Hawaii in the 1940ís and further back 2,000 years following the history of the founding disciplines. Chuan Fa Kenpo has been compared to other arts like Krav Maga and Jujitsu because of its use of leverage and economy of motion to achieve its results. However, Chuan Fa Kenpo is unique from other styles in the way that it is applied in theory and practice. Practitioners learn to apply ancient martial principles to achieve success in the modern times.
