Kenkabo was GM Sid's creation. I googled Kenboka and can not find anything martial arts related. It is my understanding if I recollect that GM Sixtos Ramos is the only one that learned GM Sid Asuncion's Kekabo completely. I may be wrong on this.

Yes, KenKaBo was Sifu Sid Asuncion's system.  He still has students that teach this system on Oahu and I think some have moved to the mainland.  The system is still quite active.  Sifu Asuncion passed his system on to his most senior black belt, but for some reason I can't remember his name. He had one other senior student that was about the same rank, but somewhat (a few months to a year) more junior. As far as I know, they are both still on Oahu, teaching at one of the parks.  They usually have classes 2 days per week to allow healing between training sessions.

I have absolutely no idea what Kenboka is.
