Chicks With Sticks classes!
We are an
independent martial arts studio dedicated to providing the best in
martial arts instruction. Our program is based on a system known
as American Kenpo, a “hybrid” art developed by Mr. Ed
Parker. Ed Parker incorporated into American Kenpo elements of karate,
jujutsu, akido and wing chun as well as the Indonesian arts of kali and
silat. He began teaching his art when he opened one of the first
commercial karate school in the US in 1954. Mr. Parker continued
to refine his system for more than 30 years, until his death in
1990. A great innovator, his mind was always open to new ideas,
and he encouraged independence and creativity in his students as well.
