I did some research and created a paper that addresses the influence of jujitsu and judo on the early development of Kajukenbo. To meet the criteria for posting I was required to break the paper up into seven parts. Please begin reading at part 1 and follow the post to part 2 and so forth.

Have a great day!

Thanks Mike and Brian! I learned a lot collectting the information, especially about our lineage to Tanaka and Kano. A lot of credit needs to go to Professor John Bishop when investigating the history of Kajukenbo. His articles, the interviews with Sijo Emperado, and so much more are the primary sources of information regarding anything Kajukenbo.
