World Kempo Karate Carter Hargrave Director

The International self defense organization known as the World Kempo Association has passed its eighteenth year after its founding by President Carter Hargrave.


Hargrave is no stranger to martial arts or to those familiar with combat self defense as he is well known from his being at the helm of two associations with membership numbering over eight thousand.
Carter Hargrave began his training in sport karate, then switched gears after a chance encounter with a member of the Bruce Lee School in California who trained him to be an instructor of Jeet Kune Do as well as Kempo Karate.

The World Kempo Association is a non political group who welcomes all styles of karate to join and be able to learn the hard hitting full contact moves that sport karate lacks. For those who are not close to an WKA school, the association has a DVD training and ranking program that has been groundbreaking and hugely successful.

The Kenpo Associaton pioneered DVD training and ranking in Jeet Kune Do and Kempo Karate and brought his experience in developing that program to the Kempo distance learning system. Along with the ten films, the World Kempo Association offers two books with illustrations authored by Carter Hargrave that follow the films so that the student learns exactly like a private one on one lesson with 10th Degree Black Belt Grandmaster Hargrave.
