Thanks! All.


My style is classical Okinawin Te'. This later became know as karate.

Chuck Liddel's style is Hawaiian Kempo, which came from Okinawa..

Best represented in The Karate Kid.

striking to kicking, joint/skeletal locking to grappling, throws and takedowns to groundfighting; all areas of personal defense tactics are addressed and augmented with the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Martial Science. This enables a smaller/weaker person to efficiently defend themselves from a much larger/stronger opponent.

Areas of indepth study and training:

-Kata and Bunkai:
The heart and soul of Okinawan Kempo karate-jutsu! Analyzing martial movement within Classical Okinawan Kata from Shuri, Tomari and Naha districs. Martial Science is used to enhance the application of such movements to provide a very effeciant way of self protection that can be performed by any individual.

-Kyusho Jutsu:
Tactics that exploit the body's energetic, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, muscular and skeletal systems through the use of Pressure Points within your techniques.

-Chin-na/Torite Jutsu:
Joint/skeletal locking and grappling methods of close range and groundfighting.

-Kobudo:
Okinawan weapons training

-Modern Weapons:
Balintawak Arnis stick and knife fighting. Tactical use and defense against firearms.

- Qigong:
Internal energy development for health and martial power. Various movements from Yang Style TaijiChuan, XingYiChuan, Baguazhang, White Crane and 5 Element Qigong are analyized from both health and martial aspects.
