Tracy's Kenpo Karate of Shreveport, LA


"The practice of kenpo is to advance with suitable speed to a certain clear cut objective, a person's entire strength concentrated in his fist or foot.  The flexing of the limbs and the bending of the body, by the use of various techniques, is also accomplished at a certain speed."

"When regarded as a systematic exercise, kenpo can be performed swiftly and vigorously without strain in moving the limbs.  The respiration and circulation becomes rapid; the regeneration of the body becomes active.  Even a short period of practice is beneficial." - - James M. Mitose, 21st Great Grandmaster of Kosho Shorei Ryu Kenpo Karate.

"The great number of techniques is as much a part of the instructional design as it is the content.  If you notice, many of the fundamental movements are repeated over and over in different techniques.  While learning and drilling the many techniques teaches defenses for myriad attacks, at the same time the muscle memory is developed and competence in the movements reinforced.  Having studied several systems I find the Kenpo schema stimulates cognitive interest and is far less tedious than just simply drilling the same movements over and over."  - - Dr. Ted Sumner (Judan, 10th degree black belt in Tracy's Kenpo Karate)

The Tracy System of Kenpo is the world’s largest and oldest system of Original Kenpo.  In 1962, after training and teaching under American Kenpo Grandmaster Ed Parker, the Tracy Brothers were given control of the Kenpo Karate Association of America (KKAA).  The Tracy’s created the original karate belt system, introduced private lessons at group rates, created the sport of kickboxing, and integrated Tai Chi and Kenpo with the “Kenpo for Self Defense – Tai Chi for Life” Program.

Today, masters and teachers of the Tracy System are sought out to teach seminars on a wide variety of topics, from self defense and kata training, pressure point fighting, healing and restorative massage, kicking, and Shootfighting.
