is a common Japanese term for martial arts in general.
Kempo or Kenpo
The first character "Ken" means "fist", while the second one "ho" means "law".
However, the current standard for translating Japanese into English is the Hepburn
romanization method for creating Romaji, where the "Ken" would become "Kem" when it
precedes an "h" sound, and the "h" takes on a "p" sound. Thus, "Kenho" becomes "Kempo".
The common reference to "Kenpo" comes from the book that James Mitose produced in 1953
entitled What is Self-Defense? Kenpo JiuJitsu as a textbook on martial arts and due to
a spelling mistake by the printers who printed an N instead of M the spelling of kenpo
came about. In English, it is correct to use either term, though their particular
usages have become somewhat stylized. The term stayed with his students, and when
William Chow and Edmund Parker went to create their own Kempo schools, they took
the "Kenpo" name with them.
