What is Kempo Karate?


Kempo is a comprehensive and diverse means of unarmed self-defense. The roots of the Kempo system trace back to the warrior monks of the Shaolin Temple, the renowned home of kung-fu. Throughout centuries, the techniques of Kempo have been refined and its content expanded to include the most effective strikes, throws, and movements. Combined with a pioneering application of teaching techniques, anti-bullying content, and character development paradigms, students become leaders among their peers and realize their capacity to command any situation.
