That's cool. Its funny, I told my fighters the samething. We will be shouting out the name Kajukenbo at ALL of our events!!! Let it be this be the time Kaju rises from obscurity. Jeff Speakman, Steven Segal, Bruce Lee, all had their movies to spread the name of their arts. Maybe we need a movie!!!

Sifu Dean,

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one.The movies have always been a great channel to get the message of the martial arts to the masses. Starting with James Cagney and Spencer Tracy back in the 30's and 40's using Judo in their films. In the 50's you had Elvis using karate moves in his films and in the 60's as well.The 60's also introduced viewers to the ninja with You Only Live Twice(James Bond). The 70's had perhaps the greatest impact on the martial arts and bringing people to the dojos,kwoons, and dojangs. You had Kung-Fu, Bruce Lee and many others make film debuts. Fastforward to the 80's and we have the Ninja Nation courtesy of Sho Kosugi. Also, we find Aikido making it's way into the mainstream thanks to the efforts of Steven Seagal. The 90's brought us American Kenpo and truth be told I had never heard of Kenpo or SGM Parker until the film The Perfect Weapon. And who can forget Only the Strong with Mark Dacascos(Capoeira). Now we have Krav maga and many other martial arts on the big screen for Batman they used a system called Keysi. The movies have been a big help to arts they exposed people to otherwise unkown systems and styles that they would never have known about. Even Kajukenbo had some screen time with the FightQuest episode and if I'm not mistaken many people came here to try and find a school. Some folks feel that film waters down the art and makes it look to flashy, but as Guro Dan said Bruce had his FILM JKD and then he had HIS JKD. Salute...

Sifu Dean,

There were folks from Kajukenbo who went on to star in movies they are.

Karen Shepard(She starred in Hercules the Legendary Journeys)

Mark Dacascos(Only the Strong and Crying Freeman and many others)

GM Eric Lee(To many to list)

All of which I believe come from the Wun Hop Kuen Do branch.

OK Allen,

Take a deep breath, hold it and let it go. DILLIGAF?


Please feel free to start a new thread all about Kajukenbo movie trivia.

Lets get this thread back on topic. 

AKMMA

I have been asked by a few people what exactly is the AKMMA
SO
What is the AKMMA? And what is it not?

First, what it is not.
 It is not an organization; you cant join it or be a member.
And it is absolutely not a fifth branch of Kajukenbo.
I say that because it has come to my attention that somebody of high rank is telling people that we are trying to start a fifth branch of Kajukenbo.
Let me say again, that is absolutely absurd and not true.
There is no board of directors, the is no counsel of Grandmaster's, there is no membership
 
What it is
AKMMA is a series of seminars that will be based on the sport of full contact fighting.
It is open to anyone Kajukenbo, no matter what branch you come from.
The format will be to have an all kajukenbo full contact seminar and sparing event.
The purpose is to help those in Kajukenbo that want to compete in full contact sporting events.
We have the resource of instructors that can help in all aspects of the sporting world.
And we want to share that.
As well as give those interested a way to get past the first time pre fight jitters.
A way to help them learn from their mistakes and find their strengths and weakness
As well as maybe add some new techniques or concepts to their toolbox.
(you could call it a Kajukenbo fight camp)
 
I would love to see people being announced in the cage or ring as a Kajukenbo stylist.
Wouldn't it be grate to see someone fighting in the UFC to be announced as a Kajukenbo
Stylist.
That is how my people will be announced when they fight.
HE or SHE IS A KAJUKENBO STYLIST
 
We are calling this series of seminars AKMMA for two reasons.
1 Adriano D. Emperado is the one known as the founder of Kajukenbo.
2 Adriano loved full contact fighting; many times he would be heard saying rules, what rules?
Just knock em out.
We want to give him credit for what he gave us.
Thats it.
