Aloha,
As stated in another part of the forum, I represent the Ramos Method. However, all through the years of training with Ahgung, he never let us forget that he, is from the Chuan Fa branch. Ramos Method is just his expression of it.

With respect to all...

When Sifu Al moved back to the United States in 1987 I went back with him. September 2003 will be 30 years in Wun Hop Kuen Do. I am a 5th Degree Black Belt under Sifu Al Dacascos and very proud to have him as my Sifu.

I started Kempo in Milpitas, CA. under Instructor Keith Higa - Universal Kempo Karate School - founder Prof. Martin T. Buell. been with UKKS close to 5 yrs - until one of Sigung Sal banuelos - black belt took over the school (not sure what happen but Im told it was a good transaction) - then took an advice from a classmate to attend Sigung Sal's classes, he was still in San Jose, CA. at that time - North American Kajukenbo, he now resides in Arizona, (havent emailed him in awhile), then around 2000 We moved to Southern California - looked around for some school close where I lived, - finally found one of the BEST school's in Southern California - GLENDORA KAJUKENBO, under Prof. Doug Bunda and Senior GrandMaster Carlos bunda.  lineage under the Late Sifu John Leoning.  been with Glendora Kajukenbo ever since - As you all can see - same lineage with a bunch of full flavor - I've learned alot from my previous schools and still attain what they taught me (okay some) ;D, but the most Important thing of all - is this  - ALL THREE SCHOOLS COME FROM THE SAME ORIGIN - I respect them all and thank them for the knowledge and philosophy I've learned from each school - Now and forever - KAJUKENBO is always be a part of my life......Thank you Senior Granmaster Carlos Bunda and to Prof. Doug Bunda - without them - Kajukenbo will be incomplete.

to my Kajukenbo Brothers and Sisters - We must continue on to preserve our Original Method in Kajukenbo - or we will loose the essence of it all.

Hello all. I'm from the Kajukenpo, Nick Cerio, Karazenpo Go Shinjutsu Lineage. I'm the Rhode Island President for the Karazenpo Go Shinjutsu Black Belt Society.

I trained under many GM's
GM William R. Gregory and GM Dr. Daniel K. pai. I' ve been with GM Gregory for 29 yrs. started in Kenpo / Kempo 1972. Prof. Cerio was GM Gregory's teacher. I trained under Cerio for about 10 yrs. now I train under GM Gascon. Prof. Cerio & GM Gregory were very good to me, they helped me with my Kenpo / Kempo. and gave me the tools to put together Shojukempo. if it wasn't for them Shojukempo would have never got started. to tell you the truth these are the men that are responsible for me getting Shojukempo started. GM Gregory, GGM Pesre, Prof. Cerio, GM Parker,
GM Gascon, Maestro Guaraldi of JKA Bolonga Italy and Sensei Arvin Garberham WJKA N.Y.C.. but I
will always train in the Art that have given me hope, honor & respect. my heart is Kempo. but, my love is Shotokan. both Arts go hand & hand. oss!

hello again friends
please let me know if I'm wrong? the Kajukenbo ryu came from Kara ho ryu, Kara ho ryu came from Kosho ryu, Kosho ryu came from the Mitose family, Okinawa -te or Shorin ryu, Shorie ryu are from Azato Sensei & Itosu Sensei or Matobu Sensei. there are so many ryus out their its not funny. Sijo Emperado's Kajukenbo ryu has alot of respect from the Rhode Island area. GM Gascon speaks very highly of him, when he come to Rhode Island. Kosho ryu,
Kara ho ryu, Parker Kenpo ryu, Kajukenbo ryu, Karazenpo ryu, Cerio's ryu, Kajukenpo ryu, Shojukempo ryu. may be diferent. but, Kihon basicly are all the same just with alittle flavor added. do any of the Kajukenbo Karateka practice the Palama Sets or the Pinon's ( kata )? it would be nice to exchange info. about our ryu's. there is alot of history here! may god bless all Kenpo / Kempo ryu's around the country and the world. oss!

In a way that is slightly correct.  But Kajukenbo is a distinct martial art in itself that encompases much more then kenpo.  Unlike many kenpo systems, it does not have a single lineage. 
It has combined lineages thru Kenpo Jiujitsu, Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, Kodokan judo, Sil-lum kung fu, and Tang Soo Do.  It also has influences from Escrima and Western boxing. 
It has many techniques and principles that are not found in "kenpo" systems. 
To just lump Kajukenbo in with the "kenpo" styles would be to ignore the contributions and influences of the other 4 founders.

Kajukenpo has Karate-do, Ju-jitsu, Pai Lum, Karazenpo and Kobudo ryu. Shojukempo has Traditional Shotokan Karate-do, Aikijujitsu, Okinawan & Hawaiian Kempo, Pai Lum and Kobudo ryu. our kata's are all traditional kata Japanese version, Okinawan & Hawaiian version and afew Palama sets & Pai Lum sets. we don't use the combination's number's like combination 1 thru 20, we use names like checking the storm, bending tree, tiger wips his tail. we call them fighting tactic's. we must get together some day and talk we have alot to offer each other. you are a great help! there is so much knowledge. oss!

I have tried to locate where exactly GM Gascon sits on the Kajukenbo family tree.  Can anyone shed some light on this?  

Before he choose to sever ties with Kajukenbo in the 60's, GM Gascon was a student of John Leoning, and received his black belt from Sijo Emperado.  It was customary then (50's) for all black belt promotions to be made by Sijo Emperado, even though the student may have actually trained under one of Sijo's black belts.

Thank you sir, for this information.  I have been trying to find the common roots of the Karazepo Go Shin Jitsu and Kajukenbo systems.  I attended a seminar at GM Pesare's RI dojo.  During this seminar, GM Pesare taught us the original Karazenpo Pinans 1-4.  During this seminar GM Pesare stated these Pinans were originated in Hawaii.  Am I wrong to assume these Pinans come from our Kajukenbo lineage?
What originally attracted me to Kempo Karate/Shaolin Kempo was how eclectic the art is.  I could easily incorporate my Judo and TKD background into the system and not have to modify anything.  It all becomes clear now!  Kajukenbo is also an eclectic art!

I'm not sure since the Pinans taught in the "Shaolin Kempo"  system are actually the Okinawan Pinans, and not Kajukenbo Palama Sets (formerly called Pinans).  There are DVD's and videos availiable that have the "Original Method".       
Title: Re: What Part of The Kajukenbo Family are you from?
Post by: KempoCuban on December 02, 2005, 04:49:19 PM
You are correct, the Shaolin Kempo Pinans are based upon the Okinawan Pinans.  In Shaolin Kempo the Hawaiin based forms are called Katas.  However my point was, GM Pesare called the Katas Pinans and attributed them to a Hawaiian origin which I have to assume is the Kajukenbo lineage.  I would be very interested in purchasing the "Original Method" DVDs...  Can you suggest a source where I can purchase these?
Thank you for your endulging my requests.

Post by: John Bishop on December 02, 2005, 05:13:57 PM
The "katas" I've seen taught by the USSD and Villari schools here in California do not resemble the Kajukenbo Palama Sets.
For the DVD's

Post by: KempoCuban on December 03, 2005, 12:26:45 PM
Thank You Sir for the information you have provided.  The DVD set will make a good stocking stuffer for my family.  I have to assume the Katas from USSD and the west coast Villaris are pretty similar to the ones we on the east coast have.  With all the changing of names it makes it a bit challenging to follow the limbs to get to the root.   Thank you again Sir.

Professor Rich recieved rank from Professor Cerio and Professor (?) Godin, and now from Sijo. It's all very confusing to me. Eh, we're on the family tree, so that's good enough for me.

I started under Professor Harper before moving back to Utah. I was unable to locate a Kajukenbo school here, so I started training in Shorei Kempo. Its lienage traces back to motobu and mitose. I wish I could have received my black belt from Professor Harper himself, however life does not always go as planed. It was nice to see a familiar name. Aloha Sifu Dean. I hope all is well with you.

Started training in Kajukenbo in 1977 under Prof. Gabe Vargas until the early 90's, at which time I started teaching on my own.  After taking a sabbatical from active training, I am now teaching Kaju. again.  Currently under Great Grandmaster Gaylord.

I am from the Ahgung Tony Ramos lineage. My first Kaju. instructor back in '76 was Sigung Roland Yadao. He moved to Hawaii years thereafter and I started training in Fairfield/Suisiun area directly under Ahgung Tony Ramos, whom I eventually received my Higher Rank of Sifu back in '93.  I am known by several names, depending on who you are. But, for my Kajukenbo family I go by Manuel Esquivel AKA Sifu Mani.

Sure do, first picture, left to right: Sifu Rex Cabanas, Sifu Mark Borrie(not sure on the spelling), Mike, RJ, Ed, and Sifu Ray and the bottom picture is Sifu Eric. You probably are new to that class. When Professor Allan left, he gave Rex the kids class and he gave myself and Sifu Cathy Owens the adult class. We ended up moving up north and Rex has the class now. I just seen Sifu Rex in Vegas at the tourney. Sifu Rex, Sifu Mark, Sigung Rodney Alo, Sifu Ronnie Isaguirre, myself and my sister all grew up in Professor's class in the late 70's. Ask him about it. Im sure he has tons of stories to tell. How big is the adult class now? Is Ed still training? Tell Sifu Ray aloha from Sifu Cathy and Sibak Tony. Thanks. Also, try get Sifu Ray's number for me. I havent talked to him in years. Last I knew, he wasnt training anymore. And what the heck is going on with Sifu Eric? Wow, its been that long. Mahalo.

I started in the Kajukenbo-kenpo branch under Prof. George Jackson in the 70's in Ramey A.F.B. when Prof. Jose Luis "Cherry" Ortega (My actual Instructor) and Prof. Jerry Wright started also. Actually I am practicing the Kajukenbo Kosho Ryu Kenpo (Advance Defense System).

My roots are in the Puerto Rico Kajukenbo Lineage :

Sijo Adriano Emperado
Grandmaster Aleju Reyes, GM Jaime Basquez, Ahgung Antonio (Tony) Ramos
Prof. Donald F. Nahoolewa
Grandmaster Richard Peralta
Professor George L. Jackson, Professor Jerry Writgh Jr.
Grandmaster Jose Luis " Cherry " Ortega

But I consider we are ALL BROTHERS in the art of Kajukenbo, from the same roots but reaching out of different branches of the same tree.

My roots in the Kajukenbo Lineage is the same of Foukaoka (Welcome to the forum!). Althought my Master decided not to be more under GM Ortega and he is currently in the supervision of Sijo. Non the less I consider that GM Ortega have done many contributions for de Kajukenbo in Puerto Rico:

Sijo Adriano Emperado
Grandmaster Aleju Reyes, GM Jaime Basquez, Ahgung Antonio (Tony) Ramos
Prof. Donald F. Nahoolewa
Grandmaster Richard Peralta
Professor George L. Jackson, Professor Jerry Writgh Jr.
Grandmaster Jose Luis " Cherry " Ortega

Well to my understanding, Tum Pai was developed by GM Dela Cruz and GM Al Dacascos (along with Sijo of course).  Eventually, this evolved into Chuan Fa under the direction of those three esteemed gentlemen.  In 1984 Tum Pai was reactivated by GM Jon Loren.  To my knowledge, Chaun Fa is under the supervision GM Dela Cruz.

First thanks to my pops, Ben, for introducing me to Kajukenbo at an early age. I have fond memories of visiting Jon Loren's studio in Longview as a child and watching his Praying Mantis eat flies. So I guess it's really Jon's fault for getting both of us started.

I trained for years under Sifu Melinda Johnson at Seattle Kajukenbo. Chuan Fa / Gaylord Method. Toss some Barbara Bones in there for good measure. During this time I also trained in Kali with Bill Geoghan and Guru Russel Lafuente.

I stopped training for about 5 or 6 years and have recently started again. I am currently training under Sigung Rick Cropper, whose base is Chuan Fa / Gaylord. But like anything it's evolving. It's a great school and he, like Sifu Johnson, is a very capable instructor.

I'm pleased as punch (hah) to be training again. So there you go, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I am from both the original method and the extended family ( CHA - 3 kenpo ). I teach the original method with some additional techniques from CHA 3 and other styles. The core will always be kajukenbo though.

Hello Jessie,

Last I heard, Sling was in Iraq driving trucks.  I have been praying for his safety but haven't heard from him in years.  I now train under Bonner Lovern, he was one of Sling's students and he's who told me about Sling being in the middle east.

Began training under Ahgung Tony Ramos in 1979 in Fairfield.  At the time, our school was located at 709 Madison, just off West Texas.  And, like Sigung Williams, I owe whatever I have to Ahgung (and at the same time, dutifully recognizing Sibak Hank Taylor, Sibak Ron Forsythe, Professor Tony Yadao, Sigung, David Amiccuci, and Tai-Sigung Rob Peladeau -- for bestowing knowledge and support at one time or another). 

After a lot of selfish floating around, I owe endless thanks to GM Emil Bautista, Professor Cheyenne Corpus, and Sigung Rick Williams for offering me a soft landing and a permanent home in the Nor Cal KSDI ohana.

That is correct, but I heard, that SGM Garcia started under Sifu Shepard, then he was under GM Peralta and GM Forbach and at the end under Sijo directly. So I wrote only Sijo and SGM Garcia!  ;)
