Kajukenbo "Mixed Martial Arts"
Kajukenbo was developed in Hawaii in the 1940's. It was developed to provide the locals with a more practical means of defending themselves from the rough streets and those who walked them. 5 martial artists from different systems got together to develop a system that would address those needs. The system they developed came to be known as Kajukenbo. The founders came from different backgrounds and each contributed their knowledge to the development. These founders and their contributions are listed below.
Ka - Karate as passed down by Peter YY Choo
Ju - Judo & Jujitsu as passed down by Joseph Holck & "Uncle" Frank Ordonez respectively
Ken - Kenpo as passed down by Adriano D. Emperado
Bo - Chinese and western boxing. The Chinese boxing was contributed by Clarence "George" Chang & western boxing was practiced by all the founders.
They trained together and took the strengths of each system and combined them till they felt they had developed a system that would serve them well on the street.. The sum of the new art was bigger than the pieces.. This art came to be known as Kajukenbo.
Kajukenbo continued to grow and in the 60's it came to the mainland. Some of the early pioneers of this new system were Charles Gaylord, Tony Ramos, Joe Halbuna, Al Dacascos, John Leoning, Carlos Bunda, and others. The early roots were found mostly in California but soon instructors migrated across the United States, and now Kajukenbo is practiced worldwide. A practical expression of all range fighting Kajukenbo is widely considered Americas "First Mixed Martial Art"..
Filipino Martial Arts
The arts of the Philippines known mainly as Arnis / Kali / Escrima are very functional and practical arts. They include training in all ranges including weapons and empty hand. The weapons used primarily consist of rattan sticks, knives, swords & other impact and edged weapons. The empty hand component includes striking and kicking with the hands / feet / elbows / knees as well as standup and ground grappling. A unique aspect of these systems is that what you learn with weapons is translated to what is taught empty handed. Practical, functional, beautiful.. The Filipino martial arts fit into all those categories.
