A Taste of Kenpo

With the Liberty States Fiction Writers annual Create Something Magical conference coming up on March 19, I thought I’d give you a glimpse of martial arts self-defense training.   Kathy and I will be demonstrating techniques like this one in our Kick Butt Heroes workshop.

The Kenpo technique being performed in this link is called Crossed Twigs.  Picture your villain grabbing your hero or heroine from behind with both hands.  Maybe she is about to be restrained by handcuffs or plastic ties.  Good times!

(And yes, Kenpo techniques have very cool Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon type names which just add to the fun factor.)
