Kempo Go-Ju is two styles in one - Chinese-style kickboxing and Japanese hard/soft style of street technique. Higher rank (brown, purples, black belts) train with weapons.
This style like other martial arts helps build motivation, confidence, self esteem, respect and honor. This style is also used by police officers, state troopers, task force officers and FBI agents.
Many of today's popular styles of martial arts orginated from Go-Ju. Kempo is an ancient style of karate from China, which is Chinese kickboxing. Go-Ju is an ancient style of karate from Japan, which is Japanese hard and soft; strictly for the streets. Aikido, Jujitsu, and Muy Thai all have techniques that are similar to the Kempo Go-Ju style.
Charles Warren was taught overseas by Yamaguchi's pupils, and also taught by Master Oyama. Yamaguchi is Go-Ju style and Master Oyama is Kempo style. When Master Warren came back to the United States in 1970, permission was granted from the two foreign Masters, and so he combined the two styles to become Kempo Go-Ju.
The first school was formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1970. Today there are eight schools in Wisconsin, one in Atlanta, two in Europe, and one in Yugoslavia. Jay's Kickboxing is the first and only Kempo Go-Ju school in the state of Texas. Kempo Go-Ju has thousands of students worldwide and is a traditional and disciplined art. We strongly believe in the Kempo Go-Ju creed: honesty, honor, pride, patience, and discipline.
