Traditional Martial Arts Self Defense Techniques:
Kenpo Punch Self Defense
These versatile self-defense techniques consist of a diverse application of stances, footwork, punches, blocks, and kicks. The variety of Kung-Fu and Karate strikes, Judo and Aikido take downs, and the locks and joint manipulation of Jiu Jitsu will prove to give students many of the needed tools to defend against many types of attacks.
Overhead Attack Club Self Defense
As the name implies, the overhead club attack is any type of blunt object being swung at a victim from above. These are assertive weapon defense movements designed to allow students to practice defending this specific type of assault. Move in close and attack the attacker and stop the power and momentum of this deadly weapon.
Side Club Self Defense
The concept of these techniques are similar to overhead club defenses. While they do train you to defend against blunt weapons in the same aggressive manner, they differ in terms of the position and footwork required to handle the attack coming from different angles.
Knife Self Defense
One of the most scary and deadly types of attacks, knife attacks must be taken very seriously. These techniques are practiced with a variety of fake knives at first. These self-defense techniques are like no other in terms of the required speed, agility, and dexterity a student must master to become proficient at them. In Kempo, we often say “There is no such thing as a beginning knife technique.”
