Aloha Steve, GM Lennie Siangco of the Shangko Fighting System and High Chief of the Pedoy School of Escrima Maui Branch. I started CHA-3 Kenpo Brotherhood in 1969 with Chief Tommy Torado under Prof. Marino Tywanak. We had the old school training back then. I still remember the instructions when you get hurt ...Pass it Down the line. CHA-3 Kenpo knows what that means...lol.   I am also under the late GM Jullian Blue Generalao with Chinese Kenpo, he was one of Sijo Emperados first line of Black Belts along with Prof, Tywanak and the others. Anyway nice meeting you keep in touch.

             Aloha Mai to fellow Kenpo Men,
 In regards to fellow Black Belt Gints. When seeking out CHA-3 brothers and sisters, there is a protocal in contacting them. It has to be by letter of introduction from your Professor Lewis or his Instructor Sijo Sam Kamuela Brown of Reno, Nevada (Ken-Ju-Bo-Ai National Association). In regards to the seperation of Sam Brown and CHA-3, that is only between himself and the late Professor Marino Tiwanak. That was in regards to  your statement about politics in the Martial Arts. Also, you were misinformed about Professor Lewis training in Honolulu with CHA-3. He learned the older  CHA-3 arts from his Instructor, my uncle Sijo Sam Kamuela Brown. I have met Professor Lewis and respect him and his philosophy. I also had the honor of meeting the late Professor Marino Tiwanak and know his son Professor Michael Tiwanak of the CHA-3 (originally Civilian Housing #3 (naval housing #3), now called (Central Hawai'i Acitivies #3) in Honolulu, O'ahu. Professor Marino Tiwanak had high regards for Sijo Sam Brown and said "he was my right hand man" when talking to me personally. I had the pleasure of attending a dinner with him and other great Grand Masters Clarence Lee and Grand Master Ming of San Francisco. That is why if you want to contact other CHA-3 or KEN-JU-BO-AI members(which I am a board member and 5th degree/ Go Dan black belt) it is always with the blessings from your Professor and the other systems Professors. I don't mean to discourage you from seeking knowledge of the Kenpo/Kempo arts, but urge you to follow proper protocol and accepted etiquette.  Malama Kou Kino 'Ame Malama Kou Pu'uwai,   A Hui Hou  -  Kaleimoku

I have never heard of a protocol to see or talk to your brothers and sisters ....Ohana.....brotherhood should be an open book....

Talking to brothers and sistersi is fine. But, to seek PROTOCAl.

             To respond to open book! That is fine to talk to brothers and sisters of the love of the art. When you are looking to discuss techniques and systems. It is then you request through your hiarchy or teacher, may it be Sifu, Sensei, Professor, Master. That is why we have a ranking system. You should show respect, then respect will be given. Like we say in Hawaiian to be Ha'a Ha'a (Humble). You would reap greatness and friendship, this what we mean through protocal. Especially if he is trying to learn more about his generation from Go shin jutsu through Ken-Ju-Bo-Ai through CHA-3  Again that is through his teacher Professor Richard Lewis. Without that structure, would be all chaos! Tradition and Respect is all what was mentioned. Again to reach out to a brother or sister of the Arts that is fine. But, to discuss it! Always PROTOCAL! The old proverb- Like an open book! Loose lips sink ships. We do not want (BACHI), bad karma. With Respect and with ALOHA- A is for Akahai- to be kind and respectable,  L- is for Lokahi to be humble and giving from ones self,  O- is for 'Olu'Olu- to be kind and thoughtful, H- Ha'a Ha'a- to be humble and giving without any expectations, A- Ahonui- To serve & giving from ones heart. So I say to you ALOHA!
Mahalo Nui Loa! Kaleimoku with RESPECT.

I have to say I think there is no disrespect in talking....All students any rank from any school can come up to me ask me a question email or call.....I am open to share what I have learn....  My Instructors, Yoshii, Hartsell, GGM Gaylord all agree.....I have nothing to hide and life is short...Gints has trained with me and he knows how it works....he is a friendly and very respectful student and his Instructor is the same....I guess we all have our ways of doing things...my students are very respectful of other Instructors.....that's how they learn to be through their training....Teachers are meant to teach.......the best I have met were open minded and open and didn't look down on people willing to learn....Peace

I think that's one of the things that sets Kajukenbo apart from some of the other systems; a sense of sharing.  Most of the Kaju teachers I've had the chance to train with or talk to were always willing to share, both to Kajukenbo ohana and other martial artists.
I've personally always been open to anyone in the martial arts who wants to learn about or talk about Kajukenbo. 
Actually, I've seen this openness with many seniors from various systems.

Nothing brings a bigger smile to my face than when my son is finishing a technique and says, "I got this from GM Harper" or "I got this from GM Sotelo or Prof. Bono," etc. We all learn from each other. I had four remarkable Kajukenbo teachers and each one had a different philosophy on the art, life, my training needs, etc.

Is there anyone else here taking CHA 3 Kenpo, or am I the only one?  Just wondering, we are few and far between outside of Hawaii, I'm in Texas.
