Kajukenbo in Motion / Re: Remembering GM Richard Bustillo

Wow. Thanks Brother Jeff.  I had not heard.

I had the honor to train with him years ago.

He actually pulled me out of a seminar to uke for him when he was teaching a little Machado Jiu-Jitsu in the 90's because I knew the positions.

CONGRATULATIONS Grandmaster Davies!!! I only wish I could have been there. Since moving to Iowa I miss my Kajukenbo training and the other students and instructors. Nothing available here. If anyone has pictures of this event, I would really appreciate any.
 Once again, congratulations Grandmaster!

Kajukenbo in Motion / Remembering GM Richard Bustillo
« Last post by Sigung Jeff Macalolooy on April 25, 2017, 12:34:14 PM »
GM Richard Bustillo, known as the Iron Dragon of Jeet Kune Do, had his roots in Hawaii first training in Judo, Boxing, and Kajukenbo.  He was an original student of Bruce Lee and spent his life traveling the world to spread the teachings of his IMB Academy (International Martial Arts and Boxing).

This is the highlight portion of the DVD we made of his seminar in 2011.  We will eventually release the entire DVD on our YouTube channel.

RIP Richard Bustillo

Enjoy the video of a legend in the martial arts:

Had the privilege to go and visit Professor Bryan Davies in Federal Way Seattle who is a direct descendant of the Ramos Lineage (under Professor Joe Clark) and was promoted to a 9th degree under the Northern California Kajukenbo Self-Defence Institute Board and Directors (NorCaKSDIBAD). We were Honored to have present and witness this promotion, Grandmaster
Kimo (Jim) Smith Emperado, Jackie Nichols Emperado and Sifu Lenny Emperado, Grandmaster Jay Burkey and Grandmaster Art Butler. Also present was Bryan's supervisor where he works (LEO).
A great turn-out at his new school, with all his student's training. A great session. The weather was just like California, sunshine then rain.  A beautiful state.

Aloha Sir,

That is awesome!!!  If you have a 50 year seminar/celebration, I would love to come support you and your school.  My school has been open for almost three years and I know some of the challenges that I have faced, so I would be honored to come show support and Kajukenbo love for a sister school. 8) :)

Mahalo,
Sifu Deb

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.
