Kingi's Kajukenbo SDI
« on: February 27, 2014, 01:46:19 PM »
 Just wanted to let everyone know that on March 7-8 2014 on TNT there will be a show done by SAVE OUR BUSINESS shown on TV station TNT about our school and Kajukenbo  with the take over of the school by my son SIGUN Robert Kingi. Hope you guys can watch it don't know how it turned out but we told the history of Kajukenbo and talked about Sijo I just hope they didn't cut to much out about that part.

"Save Our Business"?  Hmmm...

"Peter Jones is a titan of entrepreneurship who has created a worldwide empire with more than a hundred businesses, both large and small. In TNT's Save Our Business, Jones travels across America on a mission -- investing his time and expertise and putting his reputation on the line to save small businesses in trouble. Each week, Jones will assess the major problems facing a struggling company and design a plan to help save it from collapsing.

 During the first season of Save Our Business, Jones will lend his expertise and tough-love guidance to an online retailer of "vintage inspired" woman's clothing, an indoor kids theme park, a karate school, a combination florist/wine store and a New York City bagel deli."

3/7/14  10:01 PM  (CST)   "Kingi's Kajukenbo" 
After 30 years in the business, a father hands the management of his karate school to his son; Robert enlists Peter Jones' help with transforming his father's business.      TNT

I also hope they show the part where you talk about the history of Kajukenbo and Sijo Emperado.
We also talked about that on the fight quest show, but it was left out.
I caught allot of crap from people saying why didn?t you mention this and why didn?t you mention that.
My camp shot just over 40 hours of running tape and only 22 minutes of it was aired.
So we did talk about it but we were not in control of what they used.

I just saw the episode sir.
Well represented, but nothing on the history.
They did catch a Hawaii reference and ohana.

I will not say more for fear of spoilers.

Congratulations GM Kingi, Sigung Robert and the Kingi's Kajukenbo ohana.  You guys made the show a good one.  It's a blessing to have a second chance at success.

Much aloha.

I agree with Sifu Ron and Sherri, well done!   Wishing Sigung Robert much success with his Kajukenbo business, as his father has emptied himself to give him the best.  You cant ask for more than that  ;D

The only thing I will mention is the paying of the instructors?  I guess its a good idea if you are pulling in a lot of $$$, but even then, instructors are just that, instructors, not owners.   One of the many things I liked about the dojo I came up in what that once you earned your blackbelt, you no longer paid tuition/dues, but were able to workout for free.  If our Sifu felt that you were instructor worthy, you were allowed to teach classes, and depending on the time you put in, would be where you would earn your degrees, not $$$.  Again, if an instructor wants to earn $$$, open your own dojo.  JMHO.

Hand Salute to Kingi's Kajukenbo!

Agreed, I was trained -and feel- the same way. sir.
If you don't demonstrate consistently that you can teach and want to grow in the system then why would I think you deserve to be promoted?!

After black belt, Mike Griffin stopped charging me for classes and in return, I taught classes when he was on duty.
It was an honor to be trusted enough to cover classes for him - for free.

I was *stunned* at the "we are volunteers/paid" comment.  What it means to deserve a black belt is just different for some people, I guess.

But again, great job to the Kingi Ohana!

It's actually illegal not to pay instructors.  Unless you are on the mat actively teaching them how to teach (in which case they are student instructors), you can't employ someone teaching for free.  Even if they don't pay dues, you are effectively paying them in tuition, which is still taxable if it is worth over $600 (which most gyms are).

Plus, there time is valuable.  From an ethical perspective, it's also important to pay people.  If you value them, and they are bringing you in revenue (by teaching), you should pay them for their time.

Its not illegal nor unethical to volunteer your time.

So you are claiming that all of the volunteers in the world are ILLEGAL?
I do not follow your logic, Mr. Goldsmith.

This is actually a really interesting topic.  I wouldn't mind exploring it in the Smart Business section (or whatever it's called).
