Ken-Fu Nunchaku Jutsu: A Complete Martial Arts Weapon System
American Style Nunchaku Federation – United States Martial Arts Federation – Independent Karate Schools of America Association
True Nunchaku Self-Defense
System Origins &Background
Shihan Eldridge Hawkins, Jr. developed Ken-Fu Nunchaku Jutsu having earned his 5th Dan in Fusion Kenpo & 4th Dan in Chinese Kenpo Kung-Fu under Professor Harry Baker, 5th Dan in Chito Ryu under Professors Harry Baker & Ibrahim Sharif, 5th Dan in US Ju-Jitsu from the United States Ju-Jitsu Federation, and 7th Degree in American Style Nunchaku under Grand Master Michael Burke.
This martial arts style fuses the competition katas and swinging strikes of American Style Nunchaku and World Nunchaku Association techniques with the close quarter fighting of Chinese Kenpo Kung-Fu as taught by Professor Harry Baker, Ed Parker’s Kenpo Nunchaku teachings, elements of Police/Law Enforcement Defensive Tactics training and Shihan Hawkins’ original techniques.
Specifically, many of the strikes, locks, throws and more of Kenpo and Jujitsu have been modified where appropriate to be executed with the Nunchaku. This is the true Nunchaku self-defense system. After earning a Black Belt in American Style Nunchaku students will have the ability to take additional courses and earn rank in Ken-Fu Nunchaku Jutsu with the assistance of a local dojo.
