Kenpo/Kempo Karate

Kenpo/Kempo Karate is a complete fighting system that is particularly popular in the United States. Kenpo places equal emphasis on the use of hands and feet and uses similar fighting techniques to other Okinawan fighting styles. Kenpo also practices kata’s or forms like other martial arts. Whereas most Karate styles use white gis (uniforms) throughout, a visual characteristic of Kenpo is its use of black Gis for higher grades and even the mixing of black Gi tops with white pants and vice versa. Kenpo karate uses similar training to teach their students self-defense and controlled aggression.
