Bryan Hawkins began his martial arts training in 1976 in Shotokan Karate.  He studied Sho Shu and then began his Kenpo training in 1980 at Ed Parker's West Los Angeles studio.  In December 1987, as a third degree black belt, he became manager and head instructor of the West Los Angeles school where he remained until 1991.  During his time as manager, until Ed Parker's passing, Bryan Hawkins trained at Parker's house in Pasadena twice a week.  At this time Parker was revamping his system, and so, Bryan Hawkins witnessed and aided Ed Parker in the final revision of Ed Parker's American Kenpo.  Hawkins was a Kenpo technical advisor working with Ed Parker for the film "The Perfect Weapon" and has since worked as advisor on numerous television projects and theatrical releases.  Mr. Hawkins owns and operates Bryan Hawkins Kenpo Karate Studio in West Los Angeles and heads up the martial arts program at various private and public schools in southern California.  He is President of the United Kenpo Systems, a martial arts organization with affiliates throughout the United States and Europe.  He is also co-founder of M.A.P.S. (Martial Artists for Peace and Self-discipline), a nonprofit organization whose goal is to help teenagers at risk, and runs a summer Kenpo Camp for kids from all styles and systems.  Bryan's an avid hiker who lives with his wife Melissa and their two young sons in Granada Hills, California.
