Kenpo Karate, is a system of martial arts based on modern-day street fighting that applies logic and practicality while maintaining its traditional Japanese roots. It is characterized by the use of quick and powerful strikes delivered from all of the body's natural weapons, powered by rapid stance transitions, called "shifting." Beginners are introduced to basic attack responses, which comprise a larger system taught through scripted scenarios, which allow instructors a platform to share concepts and principles Ed Parker emphasized in his teachings.
