Title: Biggest differences between Kajukenbo and Kenpo Karate?
Post by: Fatal Rose on April 11, 2017, 12:45:03 AM
I'd imagine the Kata's are different, what about sparring techniques though? Also any differences in the striking attacks?

Depends on the "kenpo" lineage as well as the "kajukenbo" lineage.

I would wager my Kajukenbo doesn't look much like most kenpo you have seen - on the surface.
Especially since we do not practice "katas" at all.
We mostly train boxing, FMA and grappling instead.

The only "sparring" we do is full-contact JKD kickboxing (16oz boxing gloves and full mouth guard for beginners) or vale tudo rolling.
Occasionally we will do hard contact stick fighting (wearing some protection) or full-contact Predator Armour training.

We do not train for "point sparring" tournaments at all, although some of my Krew do compete in open grappling tournaments, like NAGA.
