Only A Warrior May Choose To Walk Away



Sil Lum Kenpo Ryu is a culmination of all the martial arts knowledge that I have acquired in my over 20 years in martial arts.

Although the system is mostly based on Sil Lum Kenpo founded by Shidoshi Mark Yeager with a background in American Kenpo Karate (as taught by Grand Master Ed Parker) and Sil Lum Chuan Fa (as taught by Grand Master Takabuto Sakumi), the system as I teach now has influences from Nippon Kempo, Shito Ryu, Aikido, and Wing Chun.  Many of the techniques still keep their original form from Sil Lum Kenpo, but some American Kenpo techniques and techniques of my own have been added and some additional weapons training has entered the curriculum.


This system was first and foremost developed so I can pass my knowledge onto my children and they pass it on to theirs.  This website will serve as our place of documentation as the system evolves and grows.  I have spent the last three years developing a manual (based on Shidoshi Yeagers original manual) that will encompass our new system. Once sections of the manual are complete I will put them here on the web site.   This site shall forever be under construction because as Kenpo should be, it will always be evolving.
