Welcome to a resource for Ed Parker’s American Kenpo.

It is always important to stay focused on what we wish to achieve in life, it is the same when training in Kenpo. Whether it is the next grading or competition, it is essential to maintain a focused attitude towards attaining your goals. Study all aspects of your training in equal amounts, too much time spent on the attainment of physical techniques alone will not produce a balanced coordinated fighter.

Spend time on developing the correct attitude to your training as well as how you address and speak to people. Above all as a martial artist keep your ego in check and your skills honed ready to fight at any time.

Other books on Kenpo by Roy Travert

This is the third book in this series on Kenpo, it is about the application of Kenpo from my own personal perspective. Life is full of hostility and violence, it is simply a fact of life, it is how you learn to deal with it that is important. It is essential to develop the correct mental attitude as well as the physical fighting skills to be able to deal with any situation you may encounter.

The development of your skill set should contain valid proven principles of motion based on scientific and practical experience. The twenty-one key principles found within this book will enhance, aid, and improve the physical and mental skills taught in the American Kenpo Karate system of self-defense. They are priority principles found in all martial art systems and can be used by anyone regardless of what they are learning.

Having an in-depth knowledge of these principles entails having an understanding of physics and how this knowledge will transfer into understanding the sophistication found in basic self-defense techniques. The end goal of any practitioner is to develop their skill set to attain a flexible powerful and functional mindset. This is then complemented by the use of physical self-defense techniques to protect yourself, your family and your loved ones.
