Hi Rob:

Per GM Joe Davis there is no difference.
Some call it Original and some call it Emperado. The knowledge is the same.

Hope to see you next Monday.

Technically, if it's Kajukenbo, it's "Emperado Method", since all Kajukenbo comes from his original creation.
"Original Method" is the "Kenpo Karate" branch, or the first and original method of Kajukenbo.

Buenos Dias Serene,

As a matter of fact I do see and train with Sifu Vickers. Not as much as I would like since he lives in Lubbock but he makes great effort to come and train with GM Peralta. He came down, as well as Sifu Cox from Abilene, just two weeks ago for Sigung Lopez' last weekend in town. Great training.

According to Sijo "if it's Kajukenbo, it's Emperado Method".  Thats his feelings as the founder and creator of Kajukenbo.  
But, that's not to say that other names are not attached to a branch of Kajukenbo to show who made the modifications to it, or what Kajukenbo techniques it emphasizes.

Sifu Mike R.:

Thank you for visiting us. We hope you enjoyed your training with us. The students enjoyed you as well as GM Davis and me.

After you left the students were saying wow, when will we get to throw each other around like you and Sifu Mike. I told them next week. ;) They said :o Kidding ;)

As always our best to you, Sigung Pat and Sifu Dan. ;D

See you next week in Visalia. 8)

Hello everyone....  ;D
It's nice to see so much more response lately in this section (Original Method).
I'm really happy to see that many of you are taking advantage of the knowledge and generosity of GM Joe Davis.  He is my senior under GM Aleju Reyes and has always been there for advice and consulting regarding the training we received.  He is open, honest, giving, humble and a hell of a great person!  We are lucky to have GM Davis who is so willing to share his knowledge -openly, un-selfishly and without question to anyone, from any branch or family within KAJUKENBO.
His example as a senior and GM will hopefully draw many of the other great senior instructors out of the "woodwork".  We have so many Kajukenbo students worldwide so hungry for knowledge that will hopefully convince these Masters and GM's to come back and share with all of us.
Also, it's great to see discussion from students of GM Rich Peralta and GM Don Nahoolewa. (Their GM's to me!)
If any of you have contact with them and they want to get involved with the Cafe, please let me know.  I'd love for one of them, or GM Alan Reyes, or GM Davis or any other of my seniors to take over as Moderator!! ;D
See you all next week in Visalia..

Thanx GM Forbach,
I am honored to be a student of GM Peralta. His 45 years experience shows when he takes the floor and shares his knowledge with us.
At his age, he still moves like a "whip" with power, speed and precision.
This man has remained active for 45 years and his passion for the art remains strong.
My students are honored that he takes the time to come to my school and share with them as well. This man is not only a Grand Master, but a mentor to all of us who have the priveledge to train under him.

Respectfully,

From looking at his video tapes, I'd say he teaches the "Original Method", incorporated with several of his own additions.
