Kempo and Kung fu is the main art taught at Packard's Martial Art. Kempo is the influence of the Japanese Karate and Chinese Kung fu. The Japanese side utilizes the hand strikes, elbows, and low kicks. It has a Jujitsu base (joint locks and throws). The Chinese side has the influence of animal movements that were taught by the monks centuries ago. The art is still taught in the Shaolin Temple to this day. The animal movements teach how to manipulate the aggressive situation to meet peoples defensive and offensive needs. Kempo was molded to help people protect themselves from the "bad guys".
