    There's been talk about Karazenpo books and videos for the last 4-5 years. Nothing available yet.

    although i am intruiged by the idea, i believe now that i think of it that it is the juichimenkannon- the eleven faced kannon

    the other is the senjukannon- which is the thousandarmkannon

    but i still find it interesting. i never thought of senjukannon as directly having to do with martial arts..

    It must be something new, maybe it was developed during this last decade.

    My guess is it was an addition after the MSDC crowd left in the early 90's as they don't teach it, but it is listed on the 4th dan requirements for Shaolin Self Defense Centers.

    Matt,
    MSDC does teach 1000 buddha's at 5th dan level or maybe it was 6th. The one that is linked to your page is defferent than any that i have seen.

    I know, I know....Necro thread.

    Does anyone have any more information on this blocking set? I just recently watched a Fred Villari seminar from around '88 and he mentions the Eleven Hands of the Buddha and how he had just started to teach it to his top instructors. I would be interested in seeing this set after hearing him talk about it.

    There used to be a member here (can't remember screenname) Master Joe Shuras who talked alot about Karazenpo, and also Master Joe Rebelo posts on here concerning Karazenpo. I don't know how to get ahold of these gentleman, but maybe others do. If you find "kenpojoe" on youtube (Master Rebelo) he talks about some of the Karazenpo techniques.

    Hello all,
    I was taught that the 11 hands consisted of taking each blocking set of the Plum tree (after the opening) and mastering it. This would equal 10...then the 11th hand was to put them all together again.
