    Default MT: Kenpo Newbie

    Kenpo Newbie
    By Stooooo - Thu, 26 Oct 2006 17:09:44 GMT


    As my title states I am a newbie in the world of Kenpo. But when I take something on I try an learn as much about it as possible. My question is how you know what form of Kenpo you are learning?

    According to my schools webpage we are apart of the Parker/Trejo Lineage. I have also noticed from the plaques on the wall that the belt guidelines are from Ed Parker's Infinite Insights into Kenpo. I have not read these books yet, but I plan on it. Is this suggested reading? Any other books anyone would recommend?

    Any links or information would be greatly appreciated.

    All the best,

    p.s. Prior to beginning my kenpo experience I studied Tae Kwon Do for 4 years reaching Green w/blue stripe level.

    I think I am rapidly gaining a reputation for bein' something of a smart alec, but in all seriousness, the Infinate Insights' books are almost literally the Gospel fer Kenpo folk. They are tremendously well written and offer insights into the core philosphies and concepts which our art is based upon. Most definately a MUST READ for anyone involved in Kenpo.

    I would also highly recommend Lee Wedlake's books, Kenpo Karate 101 and Kenpo Karate 202. As these have some great ideas as well.

    Good luck on your journey and hope you find your own answers along the way.

    I am impressed.

    And Stu, I have to agree with him. The are definitely a must read. I haven't had the chance to read any of Lee Wedlake's book but, I am sure that they match his reputation. (They are one my list of books to read)

    That and the "Encyclopedia of Kenpo." It defines all the concepts and principles behind what it is we do.
