Kenpo Karate self defense techniques contain Master Keys which are grouped into Linear, Circular and Singular categories. Understanding the Master Keys will make you a better martial artist. Martial arts practitioners have experienced a feeling of familiarity when performing some new move. This is because they've learned that same pattern in past lessons. Kenpo Karate is a martial art developed by Edmund (Ed) Parker that focuses on self-defense. Kenpo may be translated as fist law, Karate is the art of empty hands. Kenpo practice has evolved from the original Book Set and basic techniques to modern self-defense techniques such as Five Swords. On their path to black belt, students interactively practice in a technique line to gain infinite insights into their new skills. The self-defense techniques are comprised of many small combinations of movement such as blocks, kicks or punches that are linked together into longer routines. The longer techniques are not intended to be recipes for fighting but are repeatable ways to practice the small combination moves on an opponent. These small combinations are the Master Keys of Kenpo Karate. Kenpo practitioners may refer to them as Master Key Moves. This book explains five primary categories of linear Master Keys, five primary categories of circular Master Keys and a smaller group of Singular Keys done with an individual weapon. An understanding of Master Keys helps the student assimilate newer concepts with ones they've already learned. A summary chart included.

Parker became convinced that kenpo would be his life's work. ... with having the
foresight to see kenpo would need modernizing, and for giving him the master
keys for improvement in terms of logical and realistic thinking. Parker was 18

world.

American Kenpo Karate

Almost 50 years ago, a new television show swept our nation and captured my attention. It was called "Kung Fu". It starred David Carradine as a Shaolin monk wandering the American Wild West. The philosophy was appealing, the fight scenes were riveting, but what really captured my interest was the relationship between the young Kwai Chang Caine and his mentors Master Po and Master Kan. So, I set in search for my own Master Po. Over the years I visited various styles and schools in my area. None worked for me. Until 1990, when I met an older, white haired gentleman who taught something called American Kenpo. His manner drew me in; his love for what he taught was infectious. But as time passed, I discovered that I wanted the art to contain more that basic moves, katas and self-defense techniques. Was that all there was, just to collect movements as if they were trinkets for a curio cabinet? Where was the philosophy? Where were the fundamental principles? I felt as if I was lost in the woods. I needed a map to chart my course through the unknown. Because when you have a map, a compass and a point of reference, you know where you are, where you are going and how you are going to get there.American Kenpo Karate - the Key Principles is that map for the Kenpo practitioner. This book explores the five key principles that are the reasons behind the physical movements encompassed by this martial arts system. Just because a movement involves a kick or a punch, it isn't necessarily karate, let alone American Kenpo. With that map, it is difficult to get off the track.There are over 200 photographs that help to demonstrate concepts within this book, which was written so that anyone, martial artists and non-martial artists alike, can understand and appreciate it.

In the tradition of The Martial Artist's Book of Five Rings, one of America's most experienced teachers of karate offers new interpretations of fundamental martial arts texts. The book includes new translations of essays on leadership, correct behavior, character, and values. "Hereditary Manual of Fighting Techniques" by Yagyu Tajimanokami Munenori explores the relationship between Zen philosophy and warfare and the mental preparation for successful fighting. In "The Ultimate Sword," Takuan Soho describes the unremitting effort that must be undertaken to become a true master of strategy. He uses key aspects of sword-fighting strategy to shed light on the path to self-realization in "The Miracle of Immovable Wisdom." Kotoda Yahei Toshisada emphasizes the importance of training and learning techniques over theory in 'Technical Study of Kenpo." In "The School of Two Heavens," Musashi Miyamoto applies the principles of sword fighting to military arts and politics. Mastuura Saizan focuses on strengthening the weak points of the human mind, and exploiting the natural movements of the human body, in "Jyoseihi Kendan." And "Tengu's Dialogue on the Martial Arts" by Issai Chosanshi is a manual for students of the martial arts, presented in the form of a dialogue with a master.

This handbook is based on three primary concepts that could save your life: Situational awareness-that is, awareness and evaluation of your immediate situation and surroundings. The ability to control fear-science states that we cannot, nor would we want to, eliminate fear. But through mental training that anyone can master, fear can be channeled into effective responses to threats. Knowledge of self-defense techniques-specific self-defense techniques that, when applied with intention, will disable an attacker long enough for you to escape. Through scenarios described from both the victim and mugger's points of view, you'll understand how and why situational awareness, channeling fear, and learning specific self-defense techniques work. In your journey to remain safe and to become empowered you'll need specifics. Survival Self-Defense includes detailed explanation and illustrations of the five body weapons and how they can be used to attack key vulnerable body targets. You'll also learn the five most prevalent self-defense myths and why they won't work. Written by a martial arts and self-defense instructor of over 40 years, this book isn't about violence or paranoia, it's about the cultivation of empowerment for the purpose of personal safety.
