AKI Mission Statement

American Kenpo International is an organization headed by Master Professor Tony Cogliandro. Its main objective is to preserve and analyze the "original/traditional" version of Grand Master Ed Parker's American Kenpo Karate and continue the legitimate lines of rank and heritage Mr. Parker has left us. We recognize that we are only as strong as our members, therefore, AKI is committed to continual growth through training and advancement of our knowledge as a group. All styles are welcome.
