Mission Statement

The American Kenpo Karate International Association welcomes all martial artists interested in expanding their education and perpetuating their skills into the future. Our purpose in the A.K.K.I. is to preserve Mr. Parker's art of American Kenpo, as well as continue to create, innovate and perpetuate the ever changing, fascinating and magical art of Kenpo. Our American Kenpo Karate International Association has developed a reputation for maintaining a very high level of proficiency in the art, coupled with sound ethics. We are a synergistic group striving to be humble, honorable, responsible and respectful. We also strive to reach the highest level of perfection, developing our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual thoughts and actions. Our trained, professional Instructors possess extraordinary skill, talent, knowledge and wisdom. Their leadership qualities provide a positive atmosphere, which is coupled with innovative and progressive training ideas designed for those students who would like to learn Kenpo the way Mr. Parker intended it to be. Only this way can we all truly perpetuate the art of Kenpo into the future. Our instructors, students, and new members of the A.K.K.I. are encouraged to seek continuous improvement, and constant innovation. As mentioned before, we must continue to break traditional ways of thinking, realizing that a Kenpo practitioner may make small improvements by developing new skills. Quantum leaps and revolutionary advances in the martial arts require new road maps and new paradigms. This offers distinctively new ways of thinking about old problems.

All of us in the A.K.K.I. have worked hard to develop and provide for our members a distinctively unique method of sharing and teaching the updated techniques, sets and forms. This creative, innovative, progressive and logical approach expedites the students’ comprehension by internalizing his mind and motion, so they can perform at maximum action potential. Therefore, the student can achieve their goals (both short and long-term) in a very efficient, productive and professional manner. This will allow them the opportunity to achieve the rank of Black Belt in 2 1/2 – 3 years, and will ensure the quality performance, understanding and knowledge necessary to gain self-mastery of the individual, as well as success in the art of Kenpo. The A.K.K.I. has gained its reputation by building on quality and logic; these main building blocks are standard Universal requirements for establishing a firm foundation. We have a solid structure and a very stable association growing at a phenomenal rate.

The A.K.K.I. has achieved worldwide credibility, recognition, and exposure. We have accomplished this by developing and producing thousands of extremely creative and proficient Kenpo practitioners, as well as hundreds of high-ranking blackbelts throughout the world.

When becoming a member of the American Kenpo Karate International Association, one will attain prestigious and unparalleled status in an organization with an unquestionable professional standard of excellence, and quality. We are inferior to none, equal to any, superior to many.

To obtain a greater knowledge of the AKKI’s direction, purpose, meaning and goals, please read the "special messages" from many of our talented and gifted A.K.K.I. Instructors.
