Curriculum

Bowley Kenpo Karate is a recognized school of the American Kenpo Federation (AKF).  As such, the curriculum developed by Mr. Brian Duffy is taught to all students.  This curriculum involves the 16 technique system for Adults and a specific Junior curriculum.

Adult Curriculum

Mr. Brian Duffy designed the 16 technique system in an effort to reduce the front end load of traditional Kenpo systems. No content has been removed and remains true to the Web of Knowledge.

Adult belts are solid color.

Junior Curriculum

The aim of the Junior Curriculum is to have more goals for younger students to work towards.  The first belts also have fewer technique requirements. By the time the junior student reaches Junior Blue Belt, they will have covered the entire adult curriculum through Adult Orange Belt.  At this point the instructor has many options for the further progression of the student. They can continue along the Junior Curriculum, take the equivalent adult rank, or the next test would be for the next equivalent adult belt.

Junior belts have a white stripe in the center of the belt color.
