Self Defense School Of Kenpo - Tracy's Chinese Kenpo ( Fist Law - Chuan- Fa )

Self Defense in empty hand, stick and edged weapons - Private Instruction - No Belt Testing Fee's - No Contracts

Belt Requirements   Orange - Black Belt

Most Kenpo Organizations have watered down their requirements so  their students can be promoted faster and therefore get their belts faster and if they charge Belt  Testing Fees they can rake in more money.

   

    

                                                                     

                                                                       There are NO BELT TESTING FEES

                                                          You will have to earn  your Rank under me.                                                            

There are  10 Yellow Belt Self Defense techniques are taught in the Introductory Course.

        No matter what Color belt rank you hold, I constantly  will review and have you work lower Belt material on me in each private lesson.  All Color Belt test have some material from each of the lower belts.   Here is the clincher, Brown Belt 3rd degree is totally comprehensive, that's all the  Self  Defense  techniques and forms from yellow up through Brown Belt 3rd Degree.  If you have been a weak student through the color belt study  you better beware, the buck will come to a complete halt when you attempt to test for brown belt.  Brown Belt 2nd degree is only on the material in that  Belt.  Brown Belt 1st degree is only the material in that Belt.  Black Belt  Shodan rank is comprehensive, all material taught from yellow up though Shodan must be performed. 

       I'm  "Old School" the fundamentals and basics are stressed in every Private Lesson.   The fact that after all these years, dating back to 1976 when I opened my first Kenpo Karate studio, I have only promoted 13 students to Black Belt.  I'm not here to create  Black Belts, I am hear to teach Practical Self Defense.   

Note:   There are 30 self defense techniques taught in 2nd, 3rd and  4th Black.   I also teach some of the Tra Co Self Defense  Techniques  that I learned in the early 70s.  that remain outside of those requirements.    I personally feel the replacement techniques that Mark Tracy has injectd  into  the Tracy 2nd degree Black requirements fail to meet my  standards for  Black Belt 2nd Degree and therefore I have replaced 15 of them with other Chinese Kenpo Self Defense Techniques that challenge the student to learn new concepts and movement.   The techniques that I have replaced are not lost and are taught as fundamental shoulder -  roll and ground fighting Self Defense techniques in the lower belts.
