Don't tell me how much you honor Sijo, if you don't respect his wishes.

I agree with you 100 % Danjo, and thank you Professor KajuJKDFighter for making me laugh this beautiful morning.  We are indeed 100 % Kajukenbo and lets stay strong keep our family together. 

If it applies, enjoy and celebrate father's day today and maybe tell someone you love them.  If we can learn to love who we are, and love what we know, and share who we are, Kajukenbo will continue to be strong and family.  And family is the greatest creation in life, jmo.

Good luck to all and stay safe

***From what I understand and what the BOA have stated is that the ONLY purpose of its existence is to promote to 8th and 9th degrees.  Other than that...




KAJUKENBO BOARD OF ADVISORS

Aloha,
 
A meeting was held May 23rd, 2009 by members of the K.S.D.I. Board of Advisors on Kahului, Maui.   All were there to pay our last respects to our Sijo,Chief, Ninoy, Adriano D. Emperado.  6 of 9 board members were present, constituting a majority.  Present were Grandmasters Carlos Bunda, Gary Forbach, Rick Kingi, Vince Black, Phil Gelinas and

It is for this reason that the BOA was formed.  Any individual worthy of promotion and wishing to be recognized under the umbrella of KSDI must be approved by the BOA.

A request from me was made to the BOA on a personal matter.
Based on our personal conversations on the phone they have agreed to meet with me.
what they are for and who they respond to is up to them.
the 6 Grandmasters that I talked to in person were very glad to talk with me and agreed that what I want to talk about is very important.
I know what the mission statement of the BOA is, thank you.
As someone who knew Sijo very very well I want to talk to his BOA on some personal matter
and the 6 out of 9 I talked to have agreed.

Aloha!!!
My name is Prof. Kailani Koa,
There have been many questions about the B.O.A. that Sijo Emperado has picked. I haven't answered any e-mail or questions about the B.O.A. on the cafe due to SGM. George Ka'anana who is the Head of the Board that was selected by Sijo Emperado if there is any question feel free to cotact me by phone and I will be able to answer some of your questions. I will be in Honolulu next week for 4 days in the hospital for treatment with my thyroid cancer treatment, But I know by the Grace of God I will be healed!!!! Praise Jesus!!!
Here is my number that anyone can call me (808) 205-4765. I will not be posted anything about the B.O.A. matters on the cafe until SGM. George Ka'anana permits me too, But I am allowed to answer any questions by phone. SGM. George Ka'anana will be stepping down from the B.O.A. due his health and other things in his personal life and he will be appointing someone else to be the Head of the Board, it has not been confirm who will be but I know it will be someone who is on the B.O.A. already.
With Much Aloha & Respect,

Thank you, but we have already heard from 4 of the BOA members here on the cafe in responce to our questions.
GM Kingi, GM Forbach, GM Gelinas, GM Bunda
and at this time it is aparrent that the BOA is a mess.
you say you dont want to answer things on the cafe but we want things out in the open.
There is no need for anything that can't be answered out in the open.
I hope the BOA can regroup and come back stronger than ever.
