Karate provides a spectacular but somewhat unconventional opening to 'Kenny Live'.

American karate master Ed Parker is joined by a team of karate fighters to demonstrate the skills of the martial art of Kenpo Karate.

They are all members of the International Kenpo Karate Association in Ireland and Ed Parker is their mentor and the man for popularising Kenpo worldwide. He is also the man responsible for teaching Elvis Presley self defence and for discovering Bruce Lee.

Ed Parker was in Dublin to award black belts to Kempo Karate experts.

This episode of 'Kenny Live' was broadcast on 28 April 1990. The presenter is Pat Kenny.
