Techniques by Attack

     Fifty-five self-defense techniques make up the Karate Connection Kenpo curriculum.  It should be noted that though the techniques are the structure of the system, being able to properly execute the techniques requires a solid foundation of the basics. Basics are the core of any effective martial art. They include such items as stances, maneuvering skills,  striking, blocking, etc. Without strong basics in place any martial art will be lacking in effectiveness and practicality.

     These techniques defend against a wide range of assaults. Through the practice of blending and borrowing among the base techniques, the individual will be able to expand and develop reflexive reactions to almost any self-defense situation. Listed below are the Karate Connection Kenpo techniques listed by belt level, also included is a table breaking down the techniques by the attack used by the assailant.

     As a person learns these techniques at each belt, the techniques are transitioned together to make up the only major set in the Karate Connection known as the Master Form.  The Master Form enables the IKCA practitioner to practice the base moves of the entire system at one time.  When testing for Black Belt the Master Form is to be performed in under three minutes with no more than two errors per belt level. Errors include: an omitted movement such as a block, strike, maneuver, stance change, leg or hand check; a strike or kick that obviously misses the target, such as a ball kick to the groin that doesn't rise above the knee; over-extended movements that take themselves too far beyond the circle of protection; an incorrect angle of direction for an entire technique or any portion of a technique; a general lack of snap and power. As you can see there is more to "two errors per belt level" than meets the eye.
