    Default Kenpo Books

    I just bought "Zen of Kenpo" by Mr. Parker on he internet. I was thinking of buying the "Encyclopedia of Kenpo." Has anyone already read these? Is it worth while to buy the Encyclopedia for almost $100?

    I thought the "Zen of Kenpo" was a bit silly, since it isn't Zen at all. I would not spend $100 for the Encyclopedia, take the significant other out for a night on the town instead, you need to make up for all the time/money you already spend on kenpo.

    Encyclopedia of Kenpo is almost necessary to have. I paid $35 for mine a few years ago.

    I asked a 7th degree black belt that I knew if he could only have one Kenpo reference what would it be. He said hands down the Encyclopedia of Kenpo.

    I was given the Encyclopedia as a Xmas present from my Sifu one year. It's been invaluable!
