The only requirements needed for this course is the abilityto understand and follow instruction in the English language both verbally andwritten. Other requirements are to have an open mind to the informationpresented and to have fun with learning.
I’ve been studying martial arts for over 30 years and in that time I’vehad the privilege of training in various styles such as Kenpo Karate, Shotokan,jiu-jitsu, Aikido and Boxing.
During this time I noticed that stances, striking, blocking,positioning and movement are the foundations common to Kenpo and manyother traditional styles. This basic knowledge is a requirement to truly understanding theself-defense concepts of any traditional martial art.
Having a good understanding of thesefundamentals will improve your ability to perform many techniques effectively andprogress through Kenpo Karate or any of the various versions of Karate.
