Shaolin Kempo

Shaolin Kempo is a self-defense system that was a derivative of the Shaolin Chuan Fa system, of which there are many similarities. For example, Shaolin Kempo incorporates restraints and locks, as does Shaolin Chuan Fa. The name Shaolin Kempo pays respect to both the original system and the later development of Kempo/Kenpo, which came about through Grandmaster Chow in Hawaii. Besides encompassing these many roots, Shaolin Kempo also has Japanese origins.
