  • Dark Dragon Kenpo™ Long Distance Learning/Home Study Course

    Expose yourself to the benefits of long distance learning while providing yourself the opportunity to learn at home at your own pace. Learn a Kenpo system when not available in your area and how to defend yourself and to concentrate only on that aspect of marital arts. Visually Reinforce what you have learned in class. See real life basics, sets and techniques practiced in slow and full motion.

    Dark Dragon Kenpo™ Set 1 will be available as a set providing the basics and techniques for Yellow Belt through Green Belt. Upon the student achieving what he/she believes to be a good proficiency level, the student will then submit for review, a VHS video of themselves performing all of the techniques (yellow thru green) on another person. The video will be evaluated and if correction is required, then that information will be provided to the student for practice and re-submission of the video. When the techniques are performed correctly, then the green belt and certificate will be awarded signifying their advancement in the submission. At that time, the student may purchase the next media in the series.

    All subsequent belt levels will be done on an individual basis, e.g., the next media to be purchased will be the 3rd degree brown belt, student makes a video, submits same for testing, when successful, the brown belt is awarded with certificate, then the 2nd degree brown belt media is purchased, the requirements for advancement are met, then the 1st degree brown belt media is purchased, requirements are met for advancement, then 1st degree black and so on.

    As an added benefit, if your training partner wishes to learn the system at the same time as the purchaser, instructions are included as to how your partner can “share” in your learning by paying a test fee. Details are included with your set.
