Kenpo Karate


“Kenpo or “First Law” is an effective usage of multiple body parts to overwhelm an attacker.   Kenpo incorporates rapid strikes to stun and immobilize.  It integrates Chin Na techniques (Standing and Ground) and low kicks to control, unbalance and suppress an attacker’s intent.  Strike with the hands, feet, elbows; head, knees, shoulders, hip, etc. are limited to: time, distance & displacement, as well as ability.  Morality and the understanding of natural and societies laws govern the kenpoist actions.”                   

~ Pedro Bennett


Venn Kempo Jujitsu offer private lessons!

The complete system of the Chinese Kenpo Karate is not currently being taught in its entirety at Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods. Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods has extracted particular techniques for its Level 1 curriculum that has transition and been embedded within the practice and principles’ Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods seeks. Not only does Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods use some of the principles of Kenpo Karate within it levels. It uses principles traditionally observed in Aiki Jujitsu, Catch Wresting, Balintawak, Krav Maga, etc., nevertheless, the result that the Chinese Kenpo Karate pursues is embraced; however, in some situations within law enforcement and the educational arena, some techniques are not strategical judicious based on the laws of cause and effect.

 Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods focuses on individuality based on the past, present and future needs; as the student evolves, so does the system.

Note: The following techniques are techniques taught in m0st Kenpo Karate Systems and are not necessarily techniques taught in Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods. The techniques are presented as a reference library for Venn Kempo Jujitsu Methods practitioners to reflect and obtain a better understanding of their history and lineage.
