Shamo Kenpo Jutsu©

“The Law of the Desert Fist”

Shamo Kenpo Jutsu uses the:

fundamentals of Kenpo (Stances, Maneuvering, Blocking, Hand and Foot Strikes), combined with
fundamentals of Krabi Krabong (Muay Thai Elbow and Knee Strikes), combined with
fundamentals of Jujutsu (Breakfalls, Throws, Takedowns, and Joint Manipulations).

These fundamentals were then expanded into Techniques, Methods, and Patterns which reflect the
Chinese traditional use of Animal Styles from Shaolin Ch’uan Fa.

Shamo Kenpo Jutsu is a 5-belt system (skill levels), the Art of a Bodyguard,
which utilizes a solid foundation of fundamental movements which, in the Chinese tradition,
comprise six different Animal Stylizations.
These movements form the core of our 80 base techniques.
These techniques are used to compile our four primary practise patterns:

  • The Dragon Pattern
  • The Tiger Pattern
  • The Cougar Pattern
  • The Rattler & Roadrunner Pattern.
