In December of 2003, Professor Monis began a friendship with Grandmaster Al Cunningham of
N.E.K.I.C.K. in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Under the encouragement and guidance of
Grandmaster Cunningham, Professor Monis created his own system of Kenpo called Renigar
Kenpo / Ju Jitsu. After submitting it to be reviewed by the North American Grandmasters
Council, Professor's new system was approved for Sokeship.
Professor Monis's method of Kenpo / Ju Jitsu is a style that combines the elements of
Karazenpo, Shaolin Kenpo, Hakkoryu Ju Jitsu, Filipino Martial Arts, and Combat Cane
techniques to form a pragmatic combination of self defense techniques for a more modern
way of reality-based self protection.
