Chinese Kenpo Federation

Chineese Kempo Federation

Visit Sponsor Site

The art that is taught at the Chinese Kenpo Federation is derived from the Kenpo that was cultivated in Hawaii by James Mitose and William K.S. Chow in the 1940's. Kenpo is basically a streetfighting self defense system. It utilizes powerful linear moves with circular flowing techniques and takedowns that blend with continuity. It is known for quick strikes and effective close range fighting, which makes it the "hard-soft" style it is called. Chow's student Ed Parker brought Kenpo to California in 1956 and started a successful chain of IKKA(International Kenpo Karate Association)schools. Parker's lineage continues through Al and Jim Tracy (Tracey's Karate), Richard Willit (American Kenpo) and Orned "Chicken" Gabriel (United Karate Federation). Gabriel's student, Pete Salas, opened the Chinese Kenpo Federation in 1985 in Chula Vista. Salas trained directly under Gabriel and was also taught by Rey Leal and Steve Anderson. His martial arts experience was furthered by training in boxing, kick boxing, judo, jujitsu and tae kwon do and derobio escrima,he was mentored by Professor Wally Jay, Chief Al Tejero, Grandmaster "Blue" Generalao and Master Chief Chris Siangco. Today, the C.K.F. school is reknowned for it's innovative teaching methods, scenario-based self-defense work and highly effective sparring drills. Pete's approach to instructing is considered very unique, as is his close relationship with his students, instructors, parents and other martial artists. At C.K.F. people say you can sense the comeraderie and the lord's presence.

The story of Tiger Claw begins in 1985 when Thomas Oh founded Tiger Claw Martial Arts Safety Products and Supplies. Originally, the Ohs envisioned creating an organization dedicated to the furthering of the martial arts world and distribution of high quality, diverse and affordable martial arts supplies. With this in mind, they created a group of companies which share the same corporate culture - a culture dedicated to providing the best for its customers and the martial arts world as a whole. From the beginning, Tiger Claw has been dedicated to providing products that meet the necessities of all martial arts practitioners. This commitment entails creating a balance between the needs of the traditional practitioner and the ever-changing demands of the modern martial artist. It is evident throughout history that martial arts styles transform and evolve. We are all aware that the technologies available in the forms of material and technique are also constantly advancing to new levels. As a result, we at Tiger Claw have developed a philosophy of change to accommodate these cycles. As a manufacturer and supplier of martial arts equipment, Tiger Claw strives to adapt to all the changes that take place within the martial arts industry. Tiger Claw is committed to the safety, demands, and desires of our customers. We provide you only the best of what you should expect out of your martial arts equipment.
