Yes GM Mike is good people and an awesome practitioner and consider him a good friend.  He has taught at several (and is again this year) of the Northwest Kajukenbo Gatherings and up in Federal Way Washington at some of Professor Davies events.  GM Mike is in the Who's who section with a great write up of his lineage.

Cheers!

Definitely a great instructor, but even more, he is a very humble and awesome person.  I consider him a friend.  As Prof. Tim said, he has taught here in OR multiple times (and will be in a couple of weeks also) and at the Federal Way seminar in WA.  He hosted me in his home for a Lua/Kajukenbo seminar a few years back also.

This is literally the first page of the book!

ALOHA
?Aloha? a Hawaiian word expressing love. ?Aloha? is used as a greeting and as a goodbye. ?Aloha? is the spirit of Hawaii. Kajukenbo is Hawaiian in origin. Hawaiian aloha is integral to Kajukenbo.

The Japanese word ?waza? is commonly translated as ?tricks or techniques?. This is a book of techniques, patterns and sets that are the syllabus for Kajukenbo Kenpo Karate taught by Michael Whittle.

All names and descriptions of techniques, patterns and sets depicted in this book will be in English.
 
Michael Whittles first generation Kajukenbo lineages are Anthony Lasit and Aleju Reyes. Second generation lineages are James Johnson, Daniel Baker and Donald K. Nahoolewa. Kajukenbo mentors include Richard Peralta, Joseph Davis, Alan Abad and Emil Bautista. First generation Dan Zan Ryu Lineage is Sig Kufferath. Second generation lineage is Joseph Holck. Third generation lineage is Kirk Jaeger. First generation lineage in Kaihewalu Lua is Kolomona Kaihewalu.

There are four Kajukenbo systems approved by Adriano Emperado; ?Original Method Kenpo Karate?, ?Chuan Fa Gung Fu?, ?Won Hop Kuen Do? and ?Tum Pai?. The techniques and sets in this book are based on  ?Original Method Kenpo Karate? Kajukenbo.

There are no martial art related titles included with names of individuals in this book. A list of the current professors and grand masters is included.

The timeline is included to help the reader follow events and people that had significant roles in the development of Kajukenbo. This is not a complete timeline. The timeline includes only the names of men and women who received their first degree black belt in the 1950?s or the 1960?s. Please contact me regarding people or events that should be added to future printings of this book.

This is not intended to be a history book. John Bishop has done an excellent job of documenting the history of Kajukenbo, its founders and senior instructors in his books, articles, interviews and Kajukenbo Cafe.

Please contact Phillip Gelinas for a current Kajukenbo Family Tree of all Kajukenbo black belts registered with KSDI. You can contact him via www.kajukenbocafe.com

This is a reference book for instructors. If you think you can learn Kajukenbo from this book you are mistaken. You need an instructor.

Eric Burch, Patrick Folker, Darrell Kaiser, Nathan Kaiser and Tim Higdon assisted with demonstrations and photography the techniques. Eric Burch, Patrick Folker and Darrell Kaiser assisted with editing.

The information included in this book is from my personal experience studying and teaching Kajukenbo. 

I am responsible for any errors or omissions and will gratefully accept corrections or additions.

  Michael sent me a copy of his book to review: there is a lot of different material, as Michael trained with different Instructors and Arts. {KAJUKENBO-DAN ZAN RYU-HAWAIIAN LUA]
  A lot of time and effort was used to review all the different resources. there are reviews of Arts that influenced KAJUKENBO, also old History and Philosophy, many techniques and forms..
  The Book is very well written; [some of the photographs could be better].
  I would recommend  the Book for your Library.
  Michael said that I would NIT-PICK it, so I am still reviewing the book, as I need to talk to him about some of the Dates..
