"If you are coming to us from another style dont worry as the Kempo combat techniques will fit into your current program if you have an open mind toward improvement and growth. Remember change is good and there is no perfect martial art. A single martial art cannot be all things in all situations. True Combat Kempo is made of three arts, Karate, Ju Jitsu and Weapons. This is what makes it so very effective in real combat situations.  There are no high kicks, and all of our target areas are not allowed in sport  tournaments.  We hope you find our teachings the best ever, as it is our continued goal to improve lives and empower those who need it. God bless you in all your martial arts endeavors." Professor Hargrave
