BELT RANKING SYSTEM

THIS IS KENPO:
  • BASICS are the fundamentals of our art, the foundation on which all else is built. The How and The Why. Natural Weapons (formation and execution), Blocks, Stances, Manoeuvers, Kicks, Punches etc. Students work in groups, together with partners and individually. 

 

  • FORMS are expressions of basic skills. They are movement patterns against imaginary opponents. The student will develop Dexterity, Agility, Maneuverability and Weaponry. The beginner Forms are "TRAINING FORMS" , developing good habits. The more advanced forms are "TACTICAL FORMS", looking at strategic development. 

  • SELF DEFENCE TECHNIQUES are expansions of our FORMS and extensions of our BASICS. Techniques are practiced with partners and in various scenarios with different variables. Students will learn about the systems of the human body and how to manipulate them, scientific principles and how to apply them, power principles that will enhance their affect upon a target.

 

  • FIGHTING/SPARRING is the convergence of BASICS, FORMS and TECHNIQUES. The student will study tactics, strategies, offensive and defensive skills and much more. At Cavan Kenpo Karate Academy we encourage participation in Sport Karate and competition. Students learn how to score points and how not to be scored upon, while demonstrating good sportsmanship, honesty and fair play at all times.
