Overview

Kwon Bup means 'Fist Method,' it was developed by Sensei Robert. J. Babich, the head instructor of the Kang Duk Won in San Jose during the 1960s and 1970s.
The Kang Duk Won (House for Espousing Virtue) was one of the most prestigious martial arts schools in the United States. Students were constantly pursued as instructors, and the quality of the art was far above other martial arts schools of the time.
Sensei Babich was unique in that he could actually perform 'The One Finger Trick,' which is to thrust his finger through a board and leave a hole.
The material in this book, Kwon Bup, was developed by him, after intense work with his senior black belts. It was recorded by Al Case, one of his students and a black belt from that era.
Here are the forms, the techniques, and the incredibly valuable information that made this art superior.
Much of this information is simply not known in the martial arts of the modern era.
