Senshi no te’s Lineage

Find out about our lineage and influences

‘Senshi no te’ is mixed martial arts incorporating influences from many systems. As you can see from the diagram above our lineage stems right back to James Mitose and Kenpo. Our core influence systems are Okinawa te Karate by Gordon Doversola, Kajukenbo by Ariano Emperado and American Kenpo by Ed Parker as well as Kali and Silat from Indonesia.

As with other systems in our history we aim to provide self defence based curriculum with a focus on adapting and evolving as we need to. If something works it stays. If it does not then it goes.
