Carter Hargrave is really a well-known name in the field of martial arts, and today includes a Martial Arts News Blog "Carter hargrave blog" that provides detailed information and news on multiple fighting techinques, including those offered at the private academy Hargrave Fighting techinques. He was passionate of fighting techinques ever since he was a child and it meant to him greater than a hobby. It was a full time job that took control of his life. He began his career within the martial arts in the Oklahoma Karate Academy as an assistant instructor, and is now a triple Grandmaster and currently holds seven black belt rankings.

Carter Hargrave may be the head instructor and president around the globe Jeet Kune Do Foundation and also the World Kempo Association. Besides these, also, he owns Hargrave Martial Arts System, Hargrave Arts LLC, Hargrave Media and Combat Fighting techinques Press. All this companies help him follow his dream of spreading the teaching of fighting techinques and self defense around the world.

Early in his career, while still in Tulsa where he was teaching Tae Kwon Do and Kuk Sool, a form of Korean Ju Jitsu, he had the chance to meet a student of the Bruce Lee School in California. He then realized that he wasn't pleased with what he'd achieved to date and accepted the student's offer to train within the new style and also to become an instructor. He soon started learning various styles for the next couple of years. He remembers that period as being the hardest in the life, but he doesn't be sorry whatsoever. His passion for fighting techinques fueled him with energy to be able to accomplish everything he desired.

Carter Hargrave's achievements were recognized worldwide. In 1995 he received the Instructor of the season award. He was the youngest person to be promoted to Professor of martial arts at 33. In 1995 he was appointed Executive Director World Fighting techinques Hall of Fame Board Member. The same year he was also appointed Director United Kung Fu Federation of The united states. One year later, in 1996, he received the award for Best Martial Arts School in the usa. The united states Congress and also the United States Senate recognized his achievements.

In early 1992, the art of Jeet Kun Do was nothing like it as it should happen to be. It had been promoted very badly since the instructors weren't getting along because of political issues. Since there wasn't any governing body to place a finish for this chaos, this type of fighting techinques was almost entirely neglected. Carter Hargrave decided then to do something that was never attempted before. In 1992 he founded the planet Jeet Kune Do Federation. This stayed away from the political problems of the time and followed the purpose in which it was created. Its main goal was to bring teachers and students together to be able to spread the teachings of Bruce Lee. Carter considers these teachings as life changing and feels that everybody should have the chance to find out about them. No one ever attempted before him to create Jeet Kune Do to everyone. Not just that he tried, but also, he succeeded in doing so.

Within the same year, 1992, he also founded a brand new martial-art style. He named it American Combat Kempo. Many schools all over the world now recognize this and the US marines are utilizing some of its techniques. With what concerns the style, Carter Hargrave has got the title of Grandmaster. He's also Grandmaster in Kun Fu and Ju Jitsu. This new style was born because at that time Carter was training in four styles and was also experiencing others. Keeping them separately turn out to be difficult, but he managed to satisfy the expectations of his teachers from back them. He then realized that everyone was interested in self-defense as well as in learning self-defense skills to be able to protect themselves at the office, in school and even in the pub.

Their demands remained unsatisfied because no school was teaching this sort of stuff right now. Carter Hargrave saw the opportunity and created this new style by modifying two existing fighting techinques systems. Also, he included weapon fighting and adapted the techniques to real life situations. Besides traditional Okinawan weapons, like sai, bo, tonfa or katana, he also introduced modern firearms. He thinks when you are not better than you attacker, you do not stand an opportunity and he considers that superiority must be achieved by all means whether they are fair or unfair. The original arts that stand at the base of yankee Combat Kempo aren't recognizable anymore, after Hargrave modified them. It had not been simply a matter of combining styles additionally, it involved creativity. World Kempo Association is currently promoting the foundations of this new style worldwide. Hargrave is its president and head instructor. As well as his other organizations, that one is also staying away from the political area.

In order to spread his knowledge to all those thinking about it, Carter Hargrave also wrote three books on martial arts. "The Original Jeet Kune Do Training", that was a global best seller. It is the first Jeet Kune Do manual released on the market and photos for a better understanding of the information presented also accompany it. The other two books are "Japanese Kempo Karate Manual" in which the author tackles the American Combat Kempo system and "Japanese Kempo Karate Entrance to Secrets Manual", for all those interested in advanced training.
