Another set of issues for your opinion.  If anyone has some suggestions, feel free to add more opinion polls.  Again there are 5 issues with two options for each.  So you should choose 1 option for each issue, or pass on issues you have not opinion on or care about.

Kajukenbo has too many grandmasters  35 (12%)
Kajukenbo doe's not have too many grandmasters  16 (5.5%)

I think it does, but not because of the sheer numbers of GM's. I think the bigger problem is that too many got their rank in the wrong way. If they got it in the right way, I don't care if there are a lot of them.


If a black belt is cross ranked into Kajukenbo their black belts shouldn't automatically be put on the family tree  45 (15.4%)
If a black belt has been cross ranked into Kajukenbo, then his black belts are Kajukenbo too, and should be on the tree  11 (3.8%)

Nope. No rank without knowledge.


Kajukenbo black belts should be at least 18 years old  49 (16.8%)
Junior black belts under 18 are OK  20 (6.8%)

The tradition in our school is 18 minimum, and I would continue that with students.

There should be a minimum age for grandmaster, like 50 or 60  39 (13.4%)
There should not be any minimum age for grandmasters  17 (5.8%)

I think that the criteria that the KSDI BOA has is enough to sort this out, i.e., 40 years in Kajukenbo with two generations of black belts under you. That by itself would put the minimum age up fairly high.

Kajukenbo should be united under one organization  9 (3.1%)
Kajukenbo will never be united under one organization, but the different organizations should get along

I doubt either one will happen 100%, but the second choice is most likely.

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