Kenpo blends circular movements like those found in Kung Fu and linear movements like those found in Japanese systems. Skilled Kenpo Karate Black Belts are marked by their ability to fire off powerful techniques with blinding speed, hitting multiple targets within seconds. Where some Arts may emphasize hands or feet, Kenpo utilizes and blends both, for the purpose of devastating effectiveness in a minimum amount of time. Kenpo employs a wide variety of blocks, strikes, kicks, punches and mental awareness exercises against an attacker. Advanced Kenpo consists of 154 self-defense techniques.
