Circling Wing – American Kenpo Self-Defense Technique

This page provides details about the American Kenpo technique – Circling Wing. This self-defense technique is used against a rear grab.

Unfortunately, after the death of Ed Parker in 1990, American Kenpo broke into a number of competing organizations. This has led to a fragmentation of the style and some schools are promoting differing techniques and standards. American Kenpo often uses colorful names (i.e. Snapping Twig) for self-defense techniques in order to help students remember these moves.
