Advanced Okinawan Kempo Karate : How To Choose A Martial Arts School


This is just a basic overview of a lot of
the different aspects of karate, Okinawan Karate and Kenpo in particular but this applies
to all the different karate styles. A lot of these principles and techniques you will
find in every system. Karate is the most popular form of self defense, primarily because these
defenses are able to be taught in a very basic and systematic way. Thanks to Gitchin Funakoshi
in bringing it to Japan and they used a lot of the methods that they teach, they teach
this way here in the United States. Disadvantages are that sometimes you get caught up in tournament
competition and some schools that you might want to study with they might want to focus
on tournaments whereas where you may want to go to learn karate because you want to
learn how to defend yourself. My advice is to look around it is not really the style
that is going to matter, it does not matter what style you want to use. What you want
to do is find a style that you are going to enjoy something they are teaching that you
want to connect with and it is something that you want to learn, that they have good instructors,
that they are able to break things down so you understand because nothing is worse when
you are in a class and you’re not getting it. A good teacher will be able to take a
technique and break it down into steps and as you master each step you will be able to
do it. That’s just a basic overview. You can check out any karate gojo in the yellow pages
or on line. Look for a school in your area. I’ve been doing it for 22 years and so this
could be a lifetime thing for you too. Thanks again. My name is William Joseph Hill and
I am a 2nd degree Black Belt in Okinawan Kenpo Karate. for Expert Village.com. Thank you.

  1. Thanks for the video. My Sensei told me when he was training in Okinawa at the Uechi Ryu's Naha dojo under Mr. Shimabukuro there was a 1kyu that had been training for 15 years. Sensei asked him(mu dansha) when will he go for his shodan? The iikyu karateka said "will my kata be better if I had a black belt on? Will I kumite any better with a black belt on? My Sensei said "not really" then the iikyu said "I will get it later". Sensei tells us not to focus on rank but the deeper understanding. Osu
