  • Title: CRX Kenpo - What is Kenpo?
    Descriptive info: What is Kenpo at CRX?.. Kenpo is a dynamic martial art whose influence runs deep in the modern world.. From China to the U.. S.. A.. , Kenpo has been there to answer the demands of the day.. Ed Parker initiated the path of Kenpo which we now follow.. He dedicated his life to its research and development, fusing elements from the ancient, distilling the knowledge of many nations and binding them together with hard-nosed common sense learnt on the  ...   what any one man says it is.. The language of motion once enunciated is the way of the fighter and each student must learn to speak with their own voice.. The focus at.. CRX Kenpo.. is self-defence appropriate to our modern environment but we will not limit your potential.. The strength required to stand alone in combat does not derive from mere mechanics, at CRX we want you to make friendships and learn skills that will serve you for a lifetime..

  • Title: CRX Kenpo - Ed Parker's American Kenpo
    Descriptive info: Edmund K.. Parker founded his first Kenpo studio in the U.. in the early 1950’s.. A student of several martial disciplines Ed Parker fell in love with Kenpo whilst studying in Hawaii under William Chow.. Here he was exposed to a Japanese interpretation of the Chinese art.. Soon after Ed had moved to Los Angeles however he began to make Kenpo his own.. The martial arts at this time were gaining tremendous popularity.. Indeed Ed added the moniker Karate in the marketing of his art but Kenpo was in fact set to change things.. Parker immersed himself in all the fighting styles he could find and surrounded himself with a circle of like-minded associates with but one aim in mind – to develop Kenpo into the most relevant and effective fighting art the world had yet seen.. In Los Angeles he worked with the police department researching violence and crimes against the person.. His major innovation at this time was to use proper academic standards to quantify his results and his conclusions.. Hearsay and tradition went by the by as Ed began to merge both a common sense approach to self-defence and a systematic and methodological approach to the structure of a full-blood martial art.. Senior Grand Master Ed  ...   were to become Europe’s first Kenpo blackbelts.. Over the years this new system was tested by Ed Parker’s students and friends both in peacetime and in war.. There were several variations imposed by Mr.. Parker during his lifetime and numerous schools which branched off into different lines of research with his blessing.. Parker died in Honolulu in 1990.. He has left behind him Kenpo - a powerful and explosive art matured to serve the fighter of today.. With typical self-deprecating wit Ed Parker wrote the following in one of his Infinite Insights books regarding the future of the art:.. “When I am gone, I hope that people won't try to traditionalise my Art.. I want you to always remember that Kenpo will always be the Art of Perpetual Change.. If you remember this, then the Art will never become obsolete because it will change with the times.. While the ignorant refuse to study and the intelligent never stop, we should always be mindful of the fact that our reward in life is proportionate with the contributions we make.. A true Martial Artist is not one who fears change, but one who causes it to happen.. To live is to change, and to obtain perfection is to have changed often..

  • Title: CRX Kenpo - Instructor - Ian Pettitt
    Descriptive info: Ian Pettitt.. 1st Degree Black Belt – CRX Kenpo Lead Instructor.. First started Kenpo in 1999.. Approximately four years accumulative teaching experience.. In 2006 qualified for 1st Degree Black Belt in Dublin (Panel headed by Michael Reilly and Lorcan Carey).. “Fighting systems operate in a constant flux of refinement and elaboration.. As one instructor simplifies a technique to make it more combat effective, somewhere else another student is adding complexity to the move for the same reason.. Modern Kenpo sets out to teach a full, unabridged language of motion, and because of this, Kenpo has maintained its potential  ...   influences from other arts, but moreover they must have a clear and stated goal.. Without a realistic focus on fighting the Kenpo system quickly unravels.. I won’t have students waste their time learning techniques that they are unable to put into effect.. The underlying structures of Kenpo are simple and intuitive, and it is these that require initial emphasis.. Ultimately, Kenpo maintains the option to change that some other modern self-defence systems have thrown away.. If modern Kenpo is more demanding than other systems, it gives back far more than it takes.. ”.. Background in Archaeology, Languages and Art..

  • Title: CRX Kenpo - Self Defence - Kenpo
    Descriptive info: What keeps trained martial artists awake at night are situations like the following.. Meet Mary, she works hard in her Kenpo class and has earned the respect of her fellow students.. She knows her stuff, is quick thinking and understands the physical imperatives of a fight.. However this evening Mary finds herself faced with a situation that she has not experienced before.. The man in front of her is not threatening her exactly.. He’s just standing there but he won’t go away.. With Mary is her best friend Sue.. The latter is happy to joke with the man but Mary has a bad feeling.. She starts to observe her environment.. It is later than she had realised and the streets have begun to empty.. Who is this guy? Sometimes the more harm someone intends you the more harmless they pretend to be.. She’d like to take the initiative but she doesn’t want to escalate the problem.. If she insults him he might get angry, right? She doesn’t want to get into trouble.. And if the man is no stranger to crime, when challenged he will make sure to tell her so.. Even the thought of serious and plausible threats directed at you can be frightening.. In principle the girls could make a run for it but Sue isn’t prepared for that.. Mary takes her friend by the arm and tries to leave but there is a parked car blocking their path.. The man starts to get insistent and Mary watches as he puts his hand in his pocket.. Adrenalin begins to push into her bloodstream.. It increases her muscles ability to act but makes her feel weak.. In apprehension Mary’s brain has already started reapportioning priorities in her cortex.. This is why when Mary starts to speak she finds it difficult to think of what to say.. She is aware of somebody getting out of a car in front yet she finds herself unable to look at them because her attention is inextricably locked on the angry man in front.. She knows that if he draws an edged weapon then their chance of escape will  ...   already been studying the tactical situation.. She has been judging her position relative to her opponent.. Her base response and its variables have been catalogued in her mind through careful repetition.. Complex martial training fails under combat conditions as peoples’ brains can simply seize up.. Whilst there seem to be a multitude of techniques in the Kenpo system really there are only a handful.. Like letters in an alphabet many words can be made from a few simple elements.. In this way Mary has been trained for fluency not complexity.. Unnoticed Mary has positioned herself in a pre-fight stance.. She will need a stable base to take action from.. Wrestling on the ground is the fashion in sports fighting but it is a highly unsuitable tactic for a street fight.. Mary knows that she must divert the man’s attack then stop any further action.. Time will slow down as her brain increases it’s activity but Mary’s perception of time is also changed by her training allowing her to anticipate and cut off her attacker’s advances.. She will most likely stop him by causing him pain, by knocking the air out of his lungs or by literally shaking his brain.. A front snap kick to her attackers groin causes him to flinch and drop his hands.. Mary salutes him with a palm strike to his now unprotected nose.. These are the natural actions and reactions that Kenpo utilises.. Moreover Mary understands how to use her body dynamically.. She isn’t reliant on her muscles for power and she is not left pounding repetitively at her oversized opponent.. She knows how to torque her whole body into a target.. She forms her weapons to fit their target and uses striking patterns that leave no room and no time for her attacker to regain an initiative.. Ironically, the better trained she is the less damage she will need to inflict as she manipulates her attacker.. Of course the psychological distress of a violent encounter can linger longer than any bruises but thankfully her training has given Mary an understanding of these events and the confidence to keep moving forward..
