Grand Master Ed Parker knew he would not be around forever. In an effort to give longevity and structure to his new AMERICAN KENPO SYSTEM Ed Parker set minimum standards for obtaining each belt rank, Yellow Belt through 3rd Black Belt

In 1987 - Three years before his death on December 15, 1990 - Ed Parker published Volume V of INFINITE INSIGHTS INTO KENPO. In this book he set forth the minimum requirements for each belt. Those requirements would specify the exact techniques to be taught; the order in which they should be taught and the kata/s required.

 

Yellow belt has 10 required self defense techniques and all belts Orange through 3rd degree Black Belt have 24 self Defense techniques.


FORTUNATELY FOR THE INSTRUCTOR AND DEDICATED STUDENT = The most authoritative and detailed "written manuals" on American Kenpo Self defense Techniques are available at
