Requesting Kajukenbo School Information
« on: June 03, 2004, 04:18:27 PM »
Kajukenbo has many flavors, so when requesting information about a school, it would help if you could provide the following:

1. Any previous Kajukenbo training you have received
2. Your teacher's name
3. How long you have been training
4. What lineage you are from-Reyes, Ramos, Gaylord,
    Halbuna, etc.
5. What you are interested in learning

Each teacher offers their own unique perspective on the art. Some teachers focus more on tournament fighting, others self defense. Some schools are hard style, some soft, and others mixed hard/soft. Knowing what lineage you come from can make a big difference in where we refer you.

Prof. Powell - Great idea.

I originally came from a Chu'an Fa branch school and now train under an Emperado Method School.  I have also trained with people from various methods and branches of Kaj.  There can be a world of difference, especially for a beginner.

Anyways, just wanted to say geat idea.

Prof Powell,

It was good to meet you and Prof. Bautista at the
Cacoy Canete seminar in San Jose on May 15.

Although my club is not part of KSDI, the roots of Go Shin Jutsu Kenpo are Kajukenbo.

1.  I trained in parallel with no previous Kajukenbo training

2. My primary Kenpo teachers name is Master Richard Lewis in his Go Shin Jutsu Kenpo club.

3. I have been training in this club since 1991.  Here
is my additional training.

Organizational Training
-------------------------
1991 to present           GoShin Jutsu Kenpo, Professor Richard Lewis, Sunnyvale, CA
                        (I am an instructor, 3rd Degree Black belt)
1993,1999      Muay Thai, Nirmalya Bhomick's club,
                        Palo Alto & San Jose CA
1996-97              Pentjak Silat  (Vince Uttley, Richard Shuey, under Dr. Andre
         Knustgraichen)
1999- to 2001           Inayan Eskrima under Suro Mike Inay (passed away 00-09-27),
         mostly trained with Suro Jason Inay, San Jose, CA                    

    
Private Training
----------------
1994-96              Eclectic Martial Arts with teacher Vince Uttley
         (Muay Thai, Western Boxing, JKD, Eskrima)
Fall 1996      Muay Thai with partner JH
99-10-18 to 01-07-01   Hand & Knife practice with partner(s) SteveHarvey, LW
01-07-01 to 02-03-01   Eskrima training with senior Inayan student Steve Harvey
00-02-01 to 01-01-12   Filipino martial arts with Guro John Peterson
00-10-05 to 03-07-03   "Gints Fighting Club" fighter, mixed/weapons sparring
00-10-05 to present   "Gints Fighting Club" trainer, mixed/weapons

4. The Lineage of my Go Shin Jutsu Kenpo school,
starting with the root of Kajukenbo, is:

a. Adriano Emperado (KajuKenbo)
b. Marino Tiwanak (CHA3 Kenpo)
c. Sam Brown (Ken Ju Bo Ai)
d. Rich Lewis (Go Shin Jutsu Kenpo.  He is still Ken Ju Bo Ai, but his students are not)  His school is in Sunnyvale, CA.

5.  Kung-fu movies and school yard fist fights sparked my original interest.   I think it all started when I
used  a move from "Centipede" style from the "Five Deadly Venoms" on the basketball court in the 8th grade.

Master Rich Lewis teaches hard style with an emphasis on self-defense.  The club has never officially participated in a tournament although a large percentage of the students/instructors have done so on their own, largely before starting this training.

Hi

I had the honor to study Kajukenbo under Sam Allred and Gerald Chavez during 1973 and 1974 while I attended West Mesa High School.  I am glad to see their faces along with several other friends on Sam's web site.  

It has been a long jouney since, where I have used the lessons learned from the old Karate College of the Southwest in Albuquerque.

I am interested if there are any Kajukenbo schools in the Denver area where I currently reside.

Hey Gints,

Do you happen to know Tino Ceberano (Goju Ryu)? He studied under "The Cat " Yamaguchi. I had the pleasure of training with him this weekend and he told me back in the old days he trained Kajukenbo under Marino Tiwanak. Seen your lineage and wondered if you guys were connected.

Mr. Tony Gross;
  Try contacting Sifu Sam Carter at 303-749-9583 or his email address is sibaksam@hotmail.com. His lineage is Ramos, Bautista, Powell. He blacked at the Northern California Kajukenbo Headquarters and if need to contact more on his credentials, you can find Professor Powell or Me on this cafe. He now resides in Colorado. Hope this helps. Good luck

Hello Spidey,

I'm sorry to have missed your post from a month ago.
I do not know of Tino Ceberano (Goju Ryu), but I'd like to learn.  In what city did you train with him?  My club is located near San Jose, CA.

Thanks,

Gints

I have been living in Charlotte, NC. for the past couple of years. Tino is from Hawaii, but has been living in Australia. We got together at GM Bobby Taboada's (Balintawak Escrima) to train. You wont believe it but this guy is 63 years old and trains and hits like he is 22! I'll be moving back to the Bay next year (I'm from Fremont). It will be great to get together sometime. I'm sure Tino will be out to visit and you guys can get the chance to meet then.

I live in Tucson, Arizona and there are a few schools here that teach Kajukenbo. I do not know there reputation and that is why I am writing. Any recommendations out there?

I studied in Oakland, Ca at Hand to Hand with Colleen Gragen (Gaylord style) for about a year awhile ago and want to get back into it. I also studied Kung Fu before that for about a year and a half.

Thanks for any insights.

I was hoping that the instructors on here could help me out. LAst night I was invovled in a scouffel at my local bar wher eI alwas meet friends and play pool. A couple of guys ( soilders I presume) we drunk and looking to start a fight I guess. one of them blindsided my cousin while the other attacked me when I was getting ready to take my shot in pool. Any way to get to the point I quickly disabled my first enemy and quickly disabled the second who was attacking my poor cousin who has had no training and is pretty scrawny. I want to know from the instructors if you would want to know if your students were invovled in an incident of this sort. and how would you treat the situation.

Hi..

I trained under Joe Halbuna from 1980 to 1984 in Pacifica Ca. Have continued to practice what he taught me since then.
would like to train formaly again but have never been able to find a kaj school anywere ells ive lived. I tried to train in other styles off and on when i found a dojo but always found the lack of old school training ways hard to get past.

I'm a 3rd Generation practioner under Siju Emperado - SGM Halbuna and proud of it.

One of these days I would like to go for my black but untill then I'll just keep on keepin on.. 21 years and counting as green/brn.

Brian,

I ask that ALL of my students talk to me about any and all situations they encounter, whether it became physical or not.  Each confrontational encounter we have can become a great learning experience.  If it does become physical, I definitely want to know about it.  As my students, they represent me, my school and Kajukenbo.  I want to know how they got into the situation and how they handled it.  Did they make any attempts to avoid the confrontation?

As for handling it, well it depends on what exactly happened.  I have encountered this situation with various students of mine.  I dealt with each one differently.  Either way, I hope my students have enough respect and trust in me to feel comfortable talking to me.

Thank you for the reply, I did talk to my instructor about it. I just wanted to make sure I used Due for and not too much or too little. I was beating myself up replaying the situation in my head, I felt my reactions were slow and indecisive. I need to start doing self defense drills at a fast and real life pace. Even though that situation turned out the best way possible I don't think in the future i will be so fortunate.

My biggest concern was that I had a pool stick and my opponet did not. It was already in my hand from playing pool when he stepped in my way to attack me. I did not react like I should have, I just watched and timed him. He would telegraph when he was going to strike so I would smack him on the side of the face to throw him off gaurd. I did that a couple times then finally decided to flip the switch to disable mode. I gave him a swift poke to the throat and then a side kick to the solar plex knocking him down and I covered and went to break up the other fight.

Please comment on your expertise on this situation.
thanks
Brian
