Sensei Mike Reeves is a 10-time World Champion and World Record holder in breaking. In The Secrets of Breaking, he shares a wealth of knowledge and experience, from the most basic board breaks to the secrets of breaking stacks of concrete.

For those with no previous experience, Sensei Reeves starts off with the basics: how to set up a break properly, where to strike a board with different techniques, how to condition your hands and how to select your materials for a successful break.

Then he demonstrates and teaches 12 fundamental board breaks including the punch, knife hand, hammerfist, elbow, side kick, back kick and axe kick. Once you have the basics down, learn how to put them together in combination breaks.

The highlight of this video is the advanced segment, where Sensei Reeves teaches you the secrets to power and speed breaking as he demolishes stacks of concrete and wood. Learn to break concrete with the double elbow strike, double hammer fist and stomp kick. Then do your own "mini-world record break" as Sensei Reeves calls it, breaking 5 stacks of boards in rapid succession. The detailed set-up instructions for each break help you safely and successfully achieve these advanced techniques.

If your opponent interrupts your technique, do you know how to adapt? In the Adaptive Kenpo video, Jerry Meyers takes a series of Ed Parker Kenpo techniques and shows you how to adapt them if your opponent disrupts the flow of the technique. 

For each technique, Jerry demonstrates the original Ed Parker execution and then he shows several possible counters that may interrupt the continuity of your techniques and how to deal with these counters. Since combat is alive and always changing this video has been created to help you as a student of Kenpo adapt to these changes as they occur. 

Jerry Meyers is a first generation student of Ed Parker Kenpo (1957-1971) and has over fifty years experience in the martial arts. He has owned his own school in California for 30 years, teaching Kenpo, Chinese Kickboxing, and LucayLucay Kali Jeet Kune Do.
