Legacy in the Ramos Method. A panel of Grand Masters in Kajukenbo included: Senior Grand Master Ted Sotelo Grand Master Greg Harper, Grand Master Mitch Powell, and Grand Master Greg Lagera.  SGM Ted Sotelo emphasized how historic this day was not only for Tony Ramos Kajukenbo method/schools but also for the history of Kajukenbo. Ahgung was one of the pioneers that brought Kajukenbo to the mainland. To see his legacy continue, under Grand Master Amiccuci the successor of the Tony Ramos Kajukenbo Method,(Who was chosen Directly by Ahgung), Ahgung would be proud.
