The art of Chinese kara-ho kempo was developed in the late 1930s by Professor William Chow, who summed up the philosophy of his art as follows: "You study kara-ho to protect yourself in the street first - everything else is second". In this volume, grandmaster Sam Kuoha presents the fundamental training methods and basic techniques of this "street" oriented martial art. The kara-ho system is designed to provide defense against an attacker with or without a weapon. Included in this book are techniques to defend against grappling, clubs or sticks, guns, knives and multiple attackers. Besides an illustration of defensive techniques, this volume reveals kara-ho kempo training secrets designed to prepare you for street combat. With over 500 photographs illustrating stances, blocks, parries, strikes, training exercises and self-defense techniques, this volume provides the tools you need to defend yourself.
