Ping Pong and Karate. No, Really.

Ping Pong and Karate. No, Really.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({ google_ad_client: "ca-pub-2659328231231944", enable_page_level_ads: true }); At my alter ego, day-job, the company has recently put a ping pong table in the break room. Now there’s a daily gathering, sometimes more frequently, to determine the “championship belt.” Over the last few months, as players got better, I’ve seen a chance for better sparring as a result of playing ping pong.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({ google_ad_client: "ca-pub-2659328231231944", enable_page_level_ads: true }); Outside of Kenpo, cooking might be my biggest hobby. Or maybe just eating.

Smell That? It’s Kenpo Funk

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({ google_ad_client: "ca-pub-2659328231231944", enable_page_level_ads: true }); Dear Sam, I’m you. Plus quite a few years of seasoning, experiences, and hopefully wisdom. I’m sending this letter to you to help get your head out of a dark spot. (Don’t get caught up in the details of how. It’s not important right now.) You’re about 16 and just competed in your first Kenpo tournament. While you did fine, you’re dwelling on comparing yourself to the other, higher-rank Kenpoists. See? Told you I knew what was going on in your head. I remember what you’re thinking. Those guys moved so well, were very fast, and knew so much. Desiring what they had, you started pushing too hard in your own training. Wanting it … Read entire article »

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({ google_ad_client: "ca-pub-2659328231231944", enable_page_level_ads: true }); Once you start down the path of Kenpo Karate, it can be like a drug. You become a Kenpo addict. It’s been said you will leave the Art long before the Art leaves you. Unfortunately (perhaps fortunately), if you’re addicted to the Kenpo martial art, there is no cure.
