Service Description

KAJUKENBO is a hybrid martial art from Hawaii. The name Kajukenbo is a portmanteau of the various arts from which its style is derived: KA for Karate, JU for Judo and Jujutsu, KEN for Kenpo and BO for Boxing (Kajukenbo). It was developed in the late 1940s and founded in 1947 in the Palama Settlement of Oahu, Hawaii. The art was created through the cooperative efforts of six martial artists, each with a different specialty: Peter Choo, Frank Ordonez, Tom Bernos, Joe Holck, George Chang and sijo Adriano Directo Emperado. Kajukenbo training incorporates a blend of striking, kicking, throwing, takedowns, joint locks and weapon disarmament.[2] Today, Kajukenbo is practiced all over the world in many different branches (examples like Slapboxing and Street fighting just for reference). In contrast to many traditional martial arts, students are not required to mimic their teacher, but are encouraged to develop their own "expression" of the art.
