At Desert Dragons, we teach American Kenpo Karate a traditional karate modified for the streets of America.
It is a modification of traditional Chinese Kenpo to suit our modern society. Rather than learning how to break boards and bricks, the American Kenpo Karate students learn the principles behind their own natural force and natural weapons for realistic and practical self-defense against violent assaults.
The concepts and principles taught enable Kenpoists to prevail when attacked, even against larger or multiple attackers. Students learn, for instance, to borrow the force of an attacker and use the attacker’s own strength to counter attack.
Children, as well as adults are taught to defend against a complete spectrum of attacks, including verbal assaults, grabs, chokes, holds, punches, kicks, and weapon attacks while delivering disabling counter attacks.
