Class Etiquette

Remove shoes upon entering the dojo. Shoes are NEVER worn on the training floor.
Clothing should be neatly placed along the wall of the dojo.
Keep the dojo clean. Make sure that any trash is properly disposed.
Bow upon entering or leaving the dojo floor. This is to show respect for the facilities used in the practice of Shaolin Kempo.
Never refer to an instructor by name while in the dojo. Always use the term “Sifu.”
There should be no talking between students while class is in session.
Questions may be asked at an appropriate time.
At NO time will horseplay be tolerated.
Kempo is a discipline of both mind and body, and as such demands full concentration and serious effort on the part of the student. Horseplay can only lead to loss of knowledge and possible injury to oneself or one’s partner.
Good hygiene should be followed. Uniforms are to be kept clean and in good repair. Finger- and toenails should be kept short to prevent injury while training and hands and feet should be clean.
Jewelry should not be worn while training. Watches, rings, earrings, necklaces, etc. often get in the way and can cause otherwise avoidable injuries.
As a safety precaution, chewing gum is not allowed in class.

Home Etiquette

Children should always be respectful of their parents, teachers and fellow class mates.
Children should be kind to their brothers and sisters.
Children should not interrupt adult conversations.
Children should keep their rooms and play areas neat and clean.
Homework should be completed before play time, video games or karate practice.

What is Shaolin Kempo:
Shaolin Kenpo Karate is a martial art style that combines the Five Animals of Shaolin Kung Fu, the core competency of Kempo, the hard-hitting linear explosiveness of traditional Karate, as well as the power of Western boxing and the felling and grappling arts of Jujutsu, Chin Na, and Mongolian wrestling.This system was founded and developed by Fredrick J. Villari. He devised a hybrid system which integrated the four ways of fighting: striking, kicking, felling, and grappling to eliminate the inherent weakness of martial arts systems that focus on just one or two of fighting techniques.

5 animals of Shaolin Kempo:the Dragon, the Snake, the Tiger, the Leopard and the Crane.

 

What is Okinawan Kempo:
Okinawan Kempo is primarily a striking art with locks, throws, limb destructions, pressure points, etc. It uses strikes to set up other techniques. Many of the techniques are right out of the classical katas.

 

What is Black Tiger Kempo:
The Tiger approaches conflict head on. The Tiger is aggressive, and prefers to attack from where they are the strongest. Tiger techniques teach us how to develop power and focus on ripping and tearing motions, as well as dragging the opponent to the ground. Tigers don’t have to be the biggest, just the fiercest.
