The primary style of martial arts taught at Chamberlain Studios of Self-Defense™ is Gasan Ryu™ Kenpo. Gasan Ryu™ (Moon-Mountain style) is a practical, efficient, and easy to learn system that incorporates the kicking and punching of Karate, the throws, locks and matt-work of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, the explosive striking power of Kenpo, and the hand techniques of western boxing. It is an offshoot of the Hawaiian system of Kajukenbo and Nick Cerio’s Kenpo.
The training consists of practice in the following areas:
● Punching, kicking, striking, blocking and stance fundamentals
● Break falls, shoulder rolls, take-downs, sweeps and throws
● Self defense against grabbing attacks
● Self defense against punching attacks
● Self defense against weapon attacks (stick, knife, gun)
● Empty hand kata and weapon kata (Bo, Kama, Sai, Japanese Sword, Chinese Staff)
● Stand-up sparring (free fighting) and grappling and matt-work
● History, terminology, and philosophy of the Martial Arts
