Snapping Twig – American Kenpo Self-Defense Technique
This page provides details about the American Kenpo technique – Snapping Twig. This self-defense technique is used against a push. It involves a combination of moves such as palm strikes, punches and elbow strikes.
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.
