World Training Center
In an effort to unify standards within the Kenpo 5.0 (UK) group they have
recently started running Reciprocal Training Classes approximately every six
weeks, alternating between Exeter in south west England and Cwmbran in southern
Wales. These classes follow the suggestion of the Kenpo 5.0 Wales representative
Classes are three hours long and the objective is to get students training with the same intensity and frame of mind across the group. Unusually, the instructors train in the class if they're not teaching, therefore helping to raise the tempo from within. Content typically includes cardio and power based pad work, sparring, basics and techniques. Forms and sets are also covered but, as with the rest of the content, the emphasis is on the way people move and their mindset rather than specifics. Either way, the students know they've trained by the end of the session!
A small fee is charged to cover hall hire costs; this is not about financial gain for the instructors...but about helping the students develop their individual and collective potential along with strengthening their feeling of being part of the global 5.0 family!

“I WANT YOU TO ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT KENPO WILL ALWAYS BE THE ART OF PERPETUAL CHANGE….IF YOU REMEMBER THIS THEN THE ART WILL NEVER BECOME OBSOLETE”….”THE IGNORANT REFUSE TO STUDY AND THE INTELLIGENT NEVER STOP”…..Supreme Grand Master Ed Parker
This is one of Supreme Grand Master Ed Parker’s last quotes. He was inspired decades ago to examine his Kung Fu critically and insightfully to create American Kenpo as we know it today. Clearly, his desire was that we should resist the temptation to immortalize his art by leaving it to stagnate. The essence of the art of Kenpo is change and evolution. In this spirit, therefore, we are compelled to respond to the challenge of moving the art of Kenpo to the next level, and that is the Kenpo 5.0 system.
This system is one of perpetual change, not for the sake of change
alone, but rather change that propels the system forward at every
salient point in time. The goal of the Kenpo 5.0 system is to remain on
the cutting edge of martial arts and lead the world of self-defense.
In 1991 the Gracie family brought their system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to
the United States and thus began the elimination of the impractical
martial arts. By default, the challenge and importance of evolving this
art of Kenpo was born. Read More!
