"Did you know that the martial arts include such former Western pursuits as dueling, gunfighting, and gladiatorial combat? Nearly 100 articles by scholars discuss specific martial arts, countries, and concepts such as religion and spiritual development common to martial arts traditions of the world. Definitions of unfamiliar terms and an index that notes the historical figures and classic texts dicussed within articles help to make this set a scholarly corrective in an area often informed by the movies."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2002.

Almost 50 years ago, a new television show swept our nation and captured my attention. It was called "Kung Fu". It starred David Carradine as a Shaolin monk wandering the American Wild West. The philosophy was appealing, the fight scenes were riveting, but what really captured my interest was the relationship between the young Kwai Chang Caine and his mentors Master Po and Master Kan. So, I set in search for my own Master Po. Over the years I visited various styles and schools in my area. None worked for me. Until 1990, when I met an older, white haired gentleman who taught something called American Kenpo. His manner drew me in; his love for what he taught was infectious. But as time passed, I discovered that I wanted the art to contain more that basic moves, katas and self-defense techniques. Was that all there was, just to collect movements as if they were trinkets for a curio cabinet? Where was the philosophy? Where were the fundamental principles? I felt as if I was lost in the woods. I needed a map to chart my course through the unknown. Because when you have a map, a compass and a point of reference, you know where you are, where you are going and how you are going to get there.American Kenpo Karate - the Key Principles is that map for the Kenpo practitioner. This book explores the five key principles that are the reasons behind the physical movements encompassed by this martial arts system. Just because a movement involves a kick or a punch, it isn't necessarily karate, let alone American Kenpo. With that map, it is difficult to get off the track.There are over 200 photographs that help to demonstrate concepts within this book, which was written so that anyone, martial artists and non-martial artists alike, can understand and appreciate it.

Kenpo Karate self defense techniques contain Master Keys which are grouped into Linear, Circular and Singular categories. Understanding the Master Keys will make you a better martial artist. Martial arts practitioners have experienced a feeling of familiarity when performing some new move. This is because they've learned that same pattern in past lessons. Kenpo Karate is a martial art developed by Edmund (Ed) Parker that focuses on self-defense. Kenpo may be translated as fist law, Karate is the art of empty hands. Kenpo practice has evolved from the original Book Set and basic techniques to modern self-defense techniques such as Five Swords. On their path to black belt, students interactively practice in a technique line to gain infinite insights into their new skills. The self-defense techniques are comprised of many small combinations of movement such as blocks, kicks or punches that are linked together into longer routines. The longer techniques are not intended to be recipes for fighting but are repeatable ways to practice the small combination moves on an opponent. These small combinations are the Master Keys of Kenpo Karate. Kenpo practitioners may refer to them as Master Key Moves. This book explains five primary categories of linear Master Keys, five primary categories of circular Master Keys and a smaller group of Singular Keys done with an individual weapon. An understanding of Master Keys helps the student assimilate newer concepts with ones they've already learned. A summary chart included.
