In the 1950's, Ed Parker founded what has come to be thought of as a perfect martial arts discipline -- American Kenpo Karate. After half a century Kenpo is the fastest-growing self-defense technique taught in the United States and is continually evolving to have relevance to contemporary lifestyles. American Kenpo Karate also allows the integration and adaptation of various other martial arts styles.
Based on four basic principles of physics; torque, back-up mass, borrowed force, and marriage of gravity, Kenpo allows even the smallest person to achieve maximum effectiveness by employing proper body mechanics.
Kenpo also stresses awareness of environment. To have a clearer perception of one's surroundings is as important as having the tools and options to deploy in specific situations. American Kenpo Karate stresses self-defense.
Kenpo teaches that it is always better to walk away from an adversary than to engage. Kenpo's aim is to hone and sharpen students into perfect weapons only because of the belief that a perfect weapon makes a perfect defense. Students interested in learning Kenpo techniques who live in the DFW Metroplex are encouraged to visit Fowler's Kenpo School in Irving to see Kenpo in action!
