Kempo Ryu is based in Sydney, Australia and is known as Australia’s leading Kempo group. Whilst all our Dojo are all located in
Sydney we have a broad-base support across the city and are very active in the Australian Karate (Martial Arts) community.
Our style is a Japanese Kempo Style, whilst other styles of Kempo are American (Kenpo), or western freestyle based; we attempt to maintain the traditions and cultures of Japanese Karate in our teaching and Dojo culture.
Whilst Kempo is known across the world as the most effective self defence and we do not take this title lightly; without a serious understanding—that if we are to be known as the most effective self defence style we need to train hard and smart to maintain this honour.
Kempo is known as the Parent Art of Karate and with this we have total focus and dedication to our training. We consider this honour (being the Parent Art) to be a great one, hence we maintain a regime of sincere Budo style (Warrior style) discipline in our Dojo network.
We teach Kickboxing; which we call "Soeno Kickboxing" named after Japan's greatest Kickboxing and Karate Champion Sosui "Yoshiji Soeno", he happens to be Kancho Peter Mylonas' mentor, teacher and 'big brother' of Budo / Karate. He is Mas Oyama youngest original Black Belt student.- known as the Tiger of Kyokushin, and is the founder of Shidokan, The World Karate Association.
In Grappling Kempo Ryu uses hand and body locks and adds Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to its Grappling program and teaches both ground and stand-up combat with grappling. This Grappling program is called Kempo Ryu Broz Grappling with grappling master "Fabricio Mendoca'.
