Hey all, looking for some information. The university I hope to begin attending in the fall (the California Maritime Academy, www.csum.edu if anyone is interested) has several sports I'm interested...competitively only Crew, but there is also a non-contact kickboxing club where I hope to coach for some work, a Wrestling club, and KaJuKenBo classes. This leads to my questions.

I know as well as anyone else that it depends on the school, but if anyone could help me with these basic questions, I'd appreciate it.

In your experience:

Karate - As far as I know, the karate portion of KaJuKenBo comes from Tang Soo Do, which is fortunate for me, as I am fairly well versed in Tang Soo Do. Is the TSD in KJKB heavily emphasized? How much are kicks used? Are they high kicks like in traditional TSD, or lower as in Japanese/Okinawan martial arts?

Jiu-Jitsu/Judo - Is there any Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in this system, or is it strictly Japanese?

(Mu Ryuk PRAYS that there's at least SOME BJJ involved)

Kenpo - Well, honestly no questions here.

Boxing - How heavily is Western Boxing emphasized in KaJuKenBo?

Sparring - Is it usually full contact, or at least hard contact, and somewhat kickboxing style, or more point sparring?

I'm decently proficient in TSD, BJJ and Boxing, so I hope these are heavily emphasized aspects at the Maritime Academy.

Thanks for any input.

A bit of history...

The word Kajukenbo is derived from the letter of the styles that contributed to the creation of the art. Together they make up the Kajukenbo motto: Through this fist art one gains long life and happiness.

KA (long life) - comes from the word Karate, an art form that places the emphasis on hard and powerful techniques. The karate influence was from Tang Soo Do brought by P.Y.Y. Choo.

JU (happiness) - comes from Judo and Jujitsu, art forms that emphasize throwing, locks and sweeps. The judo and jujitsu influence was from Kodenkan Danzan Ryu brought by Joe Holck and Se Keino Ryu brought by Frank Ordonez.

KEN (fist) - comes from Kenpo, a form of karate that not only stresses the hard and powerful movements, but emphasizes multiple and fluid hand techniques. The kenpo influence was from Kosho Shorei Kenpo brought by Adriano Emperado.

BO (style) - comes from Chinese and American boxing. Chinese boxing means Kung Fu, which puts emphasis on flexibility and agility, parrying and evasive movements that flow together. The Chinese boxing influence was from Northern and Southern Sil-lum styles brought by Clarence Chang.

Well oldman pretty much described what kajukenbo is about. To be more specific it teaches several karate kicks such as the front kick, step shuffle side kick, roundhouse kicks, and so on. My instructors usually advise not to do high kicks to the head because that would be like punching someone in the foot so they focus on low kicks not to high above the belt.

The style also teaches boxing techniques like the cross, jab, hook, uppercut, along with elbow strikes. This style is very much like kickboxing except it has some more grappling moves like joint locks and some dirty tactics like pokes, and troat strikes.

Hope that answers your question.

Tang Soo Do is almost identical to Shotokan Karate. That's where it comes from, Okinawan and Japanese Karate, just with higher kicks and some other minor differences.

Well it's kind of like Apples. You got yer "Granny Smith" and yer "Macintosh". Both are apples but they have different characteristics and flavors. Both the words Kara and Tang can refer to "China" China hand way. Funikoshi used "Kara" so as to mean "empty" hand. Karate Do + empty hand way.
