Introduction
It is sod, but true, thot Yellow ond Oronge Belt sludents ore often like
college freshmen, who think they know oll the onswers. This level of troining
con be dongerous, ond coution is odvised when proclicing with fellow
siudents, or when forced to use the Art in reol comboi. This primilive stoge of
leorning requires dedicoted time ond proctice, lt is on inlongible stoge

Kenpo knowledge. Weok bosics leod lo unsuccessful ochievements. There-
fore, lenglhen your proctice sessions, ond moke eoch workout productive.
View bosic disciplines in lheir embryonic stole. As you strive for perfection,
increose your oworeness of existing detoils. Leorn howlhese detoils function.
ldentify them, dissecl lhem, onolyze them, ond perfect lhem. Accomplish
lhis, ond you will underslond whot sophisticoted bosics ore qll obout.
Perfect your best side first, lhen proceed to prociice your techniques on
your weoker side. There ore o number of benefils to this; (l) it forces you lo

History
The exoct history of Kenpo hos been lost in the ontiquity of time, ond
consequently no definile dote con be esloblished os to when it ocluolly
begon, Mony if the records lhot exist todoy ore obscure ond inconect, WE
connot iell how mony wrilings hove been destroyed or how mony develop-
ments hove never been recorded. Bils of informolion seem to indicoie thot
Kenpo, os it is known todoy, moy hove been procliced in lndio ond Chino os
long os five thousond yeors ogo. writings on turile shells lell us thoi the
Chinese did in foct proctice the ort os for bock os 2l B.C.
Although its lrue origin is obscure, o populor slory thoi prevoils gives credit
io the lndion priest, Dorumo or Bodhidhormo in oboul S2S A.D. However,
other greot men such os Hu'o To ,190-265 A.D.), o brilliont doctor, ond yuen
Fei, o populor generol (who lived duringthe Sung Dynosty 960-1279 A.D.) ore
considered lhe forefolhers of modern-doy Kenpo. Kenpo meons .fist low, (o
term used by the Okinowons lo describe the Chinese systems). From Chino,
it crossed over lo Okinowq where, known os 'le', it consisted primorily of
blows, chops ond rips with lhe honds ond fingers. Thus originoiedthe Koiole
melhod of Kenpo.
ln 1923 lhe Okinowons chonged the chorocler of Korote,which wos ihen
Chinese to thot of o Joponese chorocter. Thus the meoning chonged from
'honds of Chino to 'empiy hqnd'. This chonge ossuredly broughi obout o
deeper meoning in which ihe spirituol overcome lhe physicol.
From Okinowo two experts, Kenwo Mobuni ond Gichen Funokoshi, lifted
the veil of secrecy in I 9l 5 to introduce their techniques to Jopon. Their oim
wos not to promoie korote os o mortiol ort, but os o sport throughout Jopon.
Long before ihe Art wos ever inlroduced lo Okinowo, mony styles of the
Art existed in chino. Eoch style or syslem wos noted for ol leosl one distincl
feot such os the development of thetigerclow, butierfly kick, ponlher punch,
eic. ln oddition, mony members of lhe vorious systems guorded their secret
woys of troining. Among lhe systems of Southern Chino slemming from lhe
Shoolin or Shorinji Temple the most well known were lhe following five: Hung,
Liu, Ts'oior Choy in Contonese, Li, ond Mo. There ore other Contonese os well
os northern systems. The northern systems ploced greoi emphosis on floor
rolling, use of lhe foot. ond jumping movements. Becouse of this, nol os much
emphosis wos ploced on sirong slonces, The soulhern styles ploced greot
emphosis on stonce work os well qs hond work.
There ore bosicolly five known sfyles of korole in Okinowo Koboy-
oshi-Ryu, Shoreiji-Ryu, Shilo-Ryu, Goju-Ryu, ond Uechi-Ryu.
ln lhe lost five decodes since lhe Joponese took il up,lhe lechniques hove
been modified so thot ihey loo cloim styles of lheir own such os: Shoto-Kon,
Woddo-Ryu, Chilo-Ryu, qnd others.
The Koreons hove olso modified lheir techniques cloiming such styles os:
Toe-kwon-do, Moo-do-kwon, Tong-soo-do, ond oihers.

History
Regordless of notionol modificotion thol were developed ond suited lo
their individuol environment, we con soy thot four systems exist in the orient
todoy - Chinese. Okinowon, Koreon, ond Joponese.
ln comporison, ihe Chinese styles ore groceful, flowing, circulor, ond ore
much more flexible thon lhe Joponese styles (which utilize powerful punches
ond kicks), Okinowon styles (which stress breolhing exercises), ond Koreon
(which speciolize in high kicks ond lhe breoking of boords ond bricks) These
olher siyles ore bosicolly rigid.
Unfortunolely, mony of lhe clossicol Chinese styles olong with the Jopo-
nese, Okinowqn, ond Koreon styles ore improcticol os o modern meons of
self-defense. This stems from the foct ihot mony of lhese systems were
originollydesignedforexercise. lnoddition,mostofthesestylestodoydonot
recognize the need for chonge, especiolly in our environment. While some
offer excellent ideos on unormed fighting, o number of their methods ore
outdotedtheoriesunfitforpresent doyfighting inlhe United Slotesoronyport
of the world for thot motter.
These some orts, influenced by the Chinese, were brought lo ihe Howoiion
lslonds. lt wqs here thot Mr. Porker, o nolive of Howoii, leorned lhese orts
under one of lhe world's leoding Block Belt holders ond Americon innovqtors
of the ort, the lote Professor Williom K.S. Chow.
ln oddition to Professor Chow's modificotions, Mr. Porker hos olso reolized
lhe need lo revise lhe old meihods lo cope with modern doy fighling. Thus
lhe syslem he now teoches is unique, proclicol, reolistic, opplicoble, ond
encomposses sound logic, reosoning, ond theoreticol innovotions nol yet
employed by olher systems. Through Mr. Porker's innovotions o fifth system
hos emerged- lhe Americon System-to be more specific 'The Porker System
of Kenpo'.
Although we should respect lhe vorious styles of Kenpo slemming from lhe
Orienl, we must nol overlook theh need for improvemeni. While Mr. Porke/s
syslem still retoins lrodilionol flovor to enhonce elhicol behovior, it hos been
designed to fit the needs ond obility of lhe individuol concerned.
We should be groteful for Mr. Porker's unending contribulions ond proud
ond privileged thot we hove his creotive knowledge lo guide us in keeping

HISTORY AND MEANING OF THE SALUTATION;

Our SALUTATION is o combinotion of the 'old ond lhe new'. The


initiol port of our SALUTE honors the originolors of our ort, the Chinese.
Prior to the estoblishment of Shoo-lin, on open left hond resting on o
clenched right fist wos used os o solutolion just before the commeniemenl
of o set or form, There were severol meonings to this gesture: (1 ) Respect to
lhe originolor of this porticulor sysiem, including oll who hod
studied before him, with him, ond presenily in-luding oll who hod studied
beforehim, (2) Respecllolheoudience. (3) Respecllo bothscholors

ond men of the Mortiol Arts olike, since the left hond (open) of ihis solu-
totion represenled the scholor ond the right hond (clenched), the mon
proclicing lhe Mortiol Aris.
During the period of the Shoolin in the Ch'ing Dynosty, the meoning of
lhe geslure chonged when two oddilionol movements were odded. The
chongewoslhotthe left hond representedthe sum,the righthond lhe moon.
Wilh this chonge, the combinotion of sun ond moon represenled
the Chinese chorocler Ming, thus meoning revolutionory defenders forlhe
couse of lhe Ming resforolion. The two oddilionol movements which
were odded lo the sun ond lhe moon were formed by plocing lhe bock
of the honds togelher wilh both polms out. The fingers ol this point were in
o clow-like-foshion ond roised lo the chest ond heort. This gesture
meont, 'We ore ogoinst foreign dominotion ond our heorts ore for lhe
reol Chino.' The lost movement wos lo clench both honds ond drow lhem
to the sides of lhe woist. This pulling geslure meont, 'By pulling ond
working together we con toke our counlry bock.' These movements were
perpetuoted by the Hungs, who were secret iried socielies in Chino. ln
short, 'Scholor ond wonior, united together, bock lo bock, pulling togelher,
bock to bock, pulling logether, lo defend ogoinst the foreign
intruders'.
The firsi port of the solutotion wos preserved in recognition ond respecl to
lhe troditions set forlh by the Chinese. The concluding portion of lhe
solulqlion wos odded to tie in the heritoge of lhe 'old' with the logic of the
'new' ond innovolive fighling ort. Thus, the second pori of the SALU-
TATION inlerprets os:
