The art of Kempo-Jitsu is a study of the Okinawan Kata. This study is pre 1900 in time of application. What this means is that around 1906 to 1930 the arts went through a change. First of all realize that the samurai way of life was at a close and a non violent way of life was being introduced. The plan was to openly teach children and adults a less violent non contact art. This art became the art of controlled touch. The grappling punching and kicking art of the past was divided up into kicking and punching or grappling. The Chinese character for Tang or Chinese Fist was changed to Karate or Empty Hand. This angered many Okinawan Masters because the Chinese had contributed so much in building Okinawan Te ( Okinawan Hand ). The new art won out however because the new art did not use the Chinese Shaolin Chin-Na. It changed the Chin-Na techniques to blocks. Since the new sporting art was a Japanese project it was only proper it have a Japanese name. The new art would not teach destruction of the enemy. It would put more emphasis on being gentle, building character and blending in with the peoples and laws of the land. To a certain extent these goals were later over shadowed by competition and earning money. In the art of Kempo-Jitsu the study and dissection of the Okinawan Kata goes from 1900 back thus the study is Chinese. Shaolin Chin-Na has five sections, Muscle manipulation, Bone dislocation, Vein and breath disruption and pressure point attack. This art is truly a life time study. I have studied the arts for over thirty years and I am now learning at a faster pace then ever before. The more I learn the more I realize I do not know. Because Kempo-Jitsu is a system and not a style it has no boundaries. The art is not threatened by other arts because it is other arts before they were stylized.
