Kajukenbo is a Hawaiian martial art created by Master Emperado between 1947 and 1950. Kajukenbo is a Kenpo style used for self-defense. Master Emperado has worked with other experts in various styles for three years so that he could create an art harmonizing all concepts from their own styles, and then he put up a self-defense system, tough and realistic. Those experts were Peter Choo from Tang-So-Do Korean Karate, Joseph Holk from Kodokan Judo, Clarence Chang from Sekeino Ju-Jutsu, Clarence Chang from Kung Fu Sil Lum Pai. In addition, they brought their knowledge in English Boxing as they were amateur boxers, and also added their experience in Kali and in Polynesian LUA, an ancient martial art of Hawaiian warriors. Three years of secret and committed work later, the style was born. They called it: KA (for Korean Karate Tang-so-do) JU (for Judo and ju-jutsu) KEN (for Kenpo) BO (for Chinese and English Boxing). The concepts of Kajukenbo are logical, realistic, naturally performed. The open mind and the evolution are part of this style. The current evolution of Kajukenbo was expressed by the Great Master Angel Garcia.
Luis and Joe Diaz, official representatives for France, appointed by Master Angel Garcia and Master Emperado, continue to develop the system. This DVD is dedicated to Master Emperado and to Master Angel Garcia. This art may be practiced by all, but toughness must remain for it is part of the technical foundations, range, sensation, and accuracy of angles. The program, though it s a large one, will be broken down in this DVD as follows: empty hands work, self-defense techniques, fight techniques, self-defense against stick, against knife, and Filipino Kali for weapons work.
