The head instructor at The New Breed Training Center is Mr. Dan Pribble. For the past 15 years Mr. Pribble has been studying under Mr. Jeff Speakman, and is currently a 4th degree Black belt in the Kenpo 5.0 System
American Kenpo 5.0 is the hybrid of the last generation version of American Kenpo taught directly from Senior Grand Master Ed Parker to Jeff Speakman and ground fighting brought into the equation by several of Mr. Speakman’s student’s training and experiences in Modern MMA. It is important to recognize that this is not cage fighting but an expanding philosophy of Kenpo to produce the Kenpo ground system coupled with training drills and sparring techniques. It is modifying the existing 4.0 system while remaining completely within the combat models and thinking of American Kenpo to address the increasing and prevalent void of ground fighting in the Kenpo world, due to the evolution of MMA and the grappling arts.
