Our instructional DVDs are organized into Five Stages of Progression (Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced, Refinement, and Weapons). Upon learning each stage of the material via our online and DVD resources, you will schedule an in person training session with me that will involve further polishing the skills of that material and addressing the method of instruction of that material. Upon successful completion of that training, you will be certified to teach and award authorized ranking that spans that stage of material.
Because teaching the art involves additional skills than being able to execute the art, not all applicants will be accepted into the Instructor Certification program. We are not only looking for applicants with skill in executing Kenpo, but communication skills in sharing the art, and the integrity to represent the Five Animal Kenpo system with dignity, decorum, and humility.
