Our purpose in the A.K.K.I. is to continue to
create, innovate and perpetuate the ever changing and fascinating art of
American Kenpo. Our main focus is ensuring that our members have the highest
level of proficiency and knowledge as possible. Once understanding the
principles upon which Kenpo is based, our students will learn that American
Kenpo is one of the most effective and efficient, complete self defense
systems, as well as an art, because of it's implementation of scientific laws.
Whenever there is doubt, each sequence of motion is questioned, analyzed, and
defined by the guiding principles, laws, and disciplines of mathematics,
physics, geometry, physiology, and kinesiology. They are then adopted and
perfected to ensure sophistication in addition to elevating the student to
unparalleled proficiency through innovation.
Our united goal is to elevate and innovate the
art of American Kenpo Karate, making it better than when we found it. It is an
International forum for all American Kenpo practitioners who have the desire
to enhance their proficiency and knowledge in the street science of American
Kenpo. Like other sciences, American Kenpo is in a constant state of upgrade.
Times dictate change and progress and therefore Kenpo too must continuously be
adapted to blend with the circumstances and times. We cannot afford to solve
today's problems with yesterdays solutions. Increasing our knowledge is not
enough, we must strive to understand what we have learned. To have knowledge
of it is not the same as knowing it.
