The A.K.K.I. has Ed Parker's Kenpo System at it's base, but has expanded the curriculum to include many new empty hand, stand up grappling, ground fighting, knife (single & double) and stick (single & double) material.
One of the biggest differences is in the way people execute their actions in the A.K.K.I., using a master key "Rhythmic Timing Patterns". All of the updates and new material in the A.K.K.I. include the use of these timing patterns.
Mr. Mills was a private student of Ed Parker, the founder of American Kenpo, for over ten years. He learned many valuable lessons from Mr. Parker during that time and gives his instructor credit for teaching him how to be a more analytical and logical thinker.
What Mr. Parker taught Mr. Mills was that innovation is the key to the future of the system. He encouraged Mr. Mills to think outside of the traditional ways of thinking and practicing his system. Mr. Mills is taking the system into the future with his insights, experience, and from what he was taught by his instructor.
I will include a link to there website...though the Navigation is at the bottom of their website. weird but it was possibly intentional to make the browser read all of the way down each time.
Welcome Nick (Nike). I trained in American Kenpo for a few years and really enjoyed the form. Does AKKI differ much? We didn't do a lot of trapping or grappling, and our sweeps where fairly basic and uncomplicated.
I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!
Hello, my name is Nick, but everyone calls me NIKE. In November 2011 I started going to Arrowhead Martial Arts in SLC, UT to learn Paul Mills AKKI Kenpo taught by Mr. Ryan Wheaton.
I completely love Kenpo now, originally I started to give me something to work for and strive to reach goals like I had in High School Swimming and in Track. Now that I am considerably more heavy than in High School it is tough to start something with a lot of movement because it kills my back.
At first I thought it would be a good idea to punch a bag or a BOB unit, but as I thought about it....why train myself to strike incorrectly and to not know how to apply the defense or attack appropriately. So here I am! Looking for more Kenpoist in the SLC area, but excited to hear what other think about this Martial Art.
I am not here to sell anything...If you would like to follow my journey because it motivates you, please LIKE me on facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/BeachBodyCoachNike
Please feel free to message me with any questions you my have on Kenpo about the Beachbody Programs and Shakeology.
