    Kenpo Ground Fighting

    The knee push verision shown in the video clip is good for submission grappling when you don't have to worry about getting punched. You will have to tweak it a little if that is the method you choice to use. If I use my left hand to push on their right knee, my right hand comes up as if I am...

    Minimum acceptable number of hours/classes per week

    You may see if your instructor would do private lessons with you. At least time slots that would work for you. May also see if there are some students in class that would train with you on the side, if private lessons are too much for you.

    Kenpo And The Multiple Attacker

    Just watch some of the video's that MJS provided. The first video which I think they called Courting the Tiger. The start of it was okay, but they did several things I do not like to do. One was fighting both attackers on opposite sides. As soon as I can free myself from their grab/attack...

    Kenpo And The Multiple Attacker

    Our concepts are based off the basic techniques we learn. You may have to cut a technique short, or use part of it on the second or third attacker. The main thing is not to dwell on one attacker too much, position yourself so you can fight one person at a time or use them as a shield or...

    Kenpo And The Multiple Attacker

    When I tested for my first degree black belt, we had 3 attackers. One guy would go high to clinch so you couldn't punch the other guy would then go low to grab your legs. The last guy would start to punch. It didn't matter if you were in the middle of the room or against the wall, you were going...

    MMA as self defense

    I now England and probably most of Europe things are very different from here in the U.S in regards to training. I was watching the episode of Michael Bisping, and they said he had training in Jujutsu, karate, kickboxing etc. Here in the U.S when you talk about MMA espcially on the...

    MMA as self defense

    With MMA becoming more popular each and every day, the term is starting to become very loose. There are those who train in MMA and use various martial art skills in there teaching.

    MMA as self defense

    I train/instruct in both MMA and Kempo. One of my MMA guys came to a Kempo class. We were working on knives that day. He thought it would be good to shoot in and take me down, while I had a knife. Bad idea, got stab in the throat=dead MMA fighter. We also work/drill against knives or any other...

    Free styling Ke(m/n)po?

    Lot of times you will have a surprise type of attack coming from behind you. But you could have someone that just having a bad day, doesn't like the way you look, etc. Pushes you, gets in your face and wants to duke it out. It happens and you need to be prepared for it, if it does happen.

    JKD gloves???

    Not saying that they came from Kendo, but they look similar to Kendo's kote (gloves). The gloves that kendo uses look more like a mitten. They do lace up and the glove does extends down to the forearm area. I am sure someone took this design and added fingers to get more of the kempo style glove...

    Another judging debate at UFC 106: How often did Forrest Griffin actually land his punches

    I think they need to get rid of all those boxing farts and get people who know the MMA game both standing and grappling. Getting tried of some of these decisions made by lame judges.

    Kenpo Jujitsu? Is this the original art of Kenpo?

    My instructor was a student of Taika Oyata back in the early to mid 80's. Oyata's family history can be traced back to 1600's. Oyata was also a student under Nakamura. Nakamura started training around 10 years old. (That would dated back to around 1902.) Under his uncle and Chokki Motobu...

    Heavily Padded MMA gloves

    You can grapple with kempo gloves, but thats about it. It is very hard to work any kind of submissions with them on. Your better off using some kind of MMA training style glove. You can work ground and pound plus still work all the submissions with them on.

    Heavily Padded MMA gloves

    Ringside and Combat Sport are owned by the same group. That why you see Ringside gear in Combat Sport magazines. Ringside covers more of the boxing side while Combat Sport is more of the MMA and Kickboxing gear.
