What is Kempo?

Shaolin Kempo (also spelled Kenpo, also known as Shaolin Ch’uan Fa) is a mix of Karate, Kung Fu, and Ju-Jitsu. Kempo is known as an art that incorporates elements of several styles, and blends them into one style. It doesn’t have one specialty, but rather adjusts itself to fit the situation that presents itself.
Kempo is commonly taught at several schools advertising “Karate” or “Kung Fu” but Torrey Pines Martial Arts teaches the truest form of Shaolin Kempo in the world today. We are the only organization supported by the Shaolin Temple in China, considered the birthplace of modern martial arts.
