Early Kempo.

My friend Brett teaches Mishima Kempo in Cornwall, and has just updated his webpage with a really good page that answers some questions about what Kempo is and he also has a more detailed page on its history. It’s well worth a read if you want some good information about Kempo.

So what is Kempo? Well the short answer is, to quote from Brett’s page:

Kempo is not a martial art, but rather “Japanese martial arts of Chinese origin or association”.

So, check out his web page for more information, especially if you live in Cornwall and are interested in training Kempo. If you want to dig a little deeper, we started the Heretics Podcast off with a series on the intertwined origins of JuJitsu and Kempo, and that’s still available to listen to.
