Important Rules

The 3 Stages Of Learning

Power Principles

Each technique in the Parker Kenpo system is based on one of these power principles. Techniques can, and often do, make use of more than one of these principles, but one of the three is always the overriding force behind the technique.

Tap-Tap Drills

These are sensivity drills geared toward increasing your blocking and parrying speed without the use of force. These drills should be run quickly, but with minimal power. They begin with two individuals, each in a Right Neutral Bow.
