At encyclopexia the encyclopedia has pictures! Encycloperia a definition of terms used in American Kenpo. Cool book but I was kempo for more depth. Like kenpo itself, this book is useful. As a beginner, I found this book confusing at first due to new terminology. As I read through, it became less confusing due to internal consistency.
In working with a teacher this book is great to refer back to.
It’s a very Informative book. I would have liked to have seen some definitions of The actual Kenpo Moves with a breakdown of the belt system however.
I’m pretty new to Kenpo still a white belt and the thing I find hardest to remember is the names of some of the moves.
A more detailed explanation of them and how they were named was kind of why I bought the book, yet it’s pretty much the only thing NOT in there.
