Welcome to Kenpo in the Park! This meetup group is about learning kenpo and basic self defense. We've been meeting in Golden Gate Park since July , 2011. Whether you have prior martial arts experience and want to get back into it, or if you've never thrown a punch, I hope to see you then.
Quick background on Kenpo: Kenpo Karate is the oldest style of Kenpo being taught in the United States and was created in 1949 by William K. S. Chow from Honolulu. Kenpo is characterized by the use of quick hand strikes in rapid succession. Every block is a strike, every strike is a block; a block should be hard and directed enough to injure an opponent, decreasing their ability to continue an attack.
