Hargrave also included weapon fighting, so sticks and traditional okinawan weapons, but also modern firearms are used in this style. Nowadays American Combat Kempo, first known as Combat martial Arts, is recognized by many organizations all around the world. In order to promote it, Carter wrote two books on this topic. The first one is called “Japanese Kempo Karate Manual” and it outlines the system. The second one is created for those interested in advanced training and it’s called “Japanese Kempo Karate Entrance to Secrets Manual”. The books are useful for both teachers and students and they help them add combat fighting moves especially created to be used in real world defense.
There is also a complete set of films for training that are available on Carter Hargrave's American Kenpo.
