kenpo karate
American Kenpo or Kenpo Karate is a system of martial arts created by Ed Parker, characterized by the use of quick moves in rapid fire succession intended to overwhelm an opponent. It is largely marketed as a self defense system, and is derived from traditional Japanese martial art and other martial arts such as Southern Chinese kung fu found in the cultural melting pot of Hawaii.
Famous practitioners of Kenpo Karate: Chuck Liddell, Ed Parker, Elvis Presley, Frank Mir, Graciela Casillas, Jay Will, Jeff Speakman, June Castro, Larry Tatum, Ralph Castro, W. Hock Hochheim, William Chow
