Physically, Kenpo Karate is an art of self-defense that enables one to defeat their opponent by administering a strike or kick to the vital areas of their opponent’s anatomy. Mentally, it is a defensive study that cultivates the explicitness of serenity and tranquility, which promotes the betterment of personality and mind. Spiritually, with the understanding of discipline through rigorous training, the coordination of mind and body function to create a better self. In the physical of Kenpo, the student is bound to humility and self-restraint.
During the course of training with the La Pine K.J.B.A., our intentions are to acquaint each student with the proper physical mechanics of each defensive technique. Teach each student the science of schooling violence properly, so they can understand the differences in its usage. In each student’s progress of instruction a philosophy will be instilled that deals with the structure of personal accomplishment and proper etiquette.
