    Hey, you gotta admit that in a field that is overflowing with ninjas, eye gouging stone cold killers, and people using their chi to stop opponents hearts from beating, its at least mildly amusing to run across a style called "Gaylord".

    Lighten up - I'm certainly not questioning the style (what the hell do I know) just pointing out the inconguity of the name in such a macho discipline.

    I don't see the point in taking it so seriously

    ha yeah guess I logged on whilst irritated about other things. Seriously though, kajukenbo seems to have a fascinting history (and before anyone tells me it's a young art, yes I know). I'm not sure why people diss it. Day of the jackass is about a jackass that was hired for a little job in france. It's by a dude name of frederick foreskin, look it up.

    Many of the dates come from the timelines in "The Original Martial Arts Encyclopedia" (1st edition titled "Martial Arts: Traditions, History, People") by John Corcoran & Emil Farkus.

    Oh yeah, you think it's funny now.... Expect a nonhumorous chi blast any second!

    =========================

    As Meex put it (more or less), Kajukenbo has great schools and, uh, some that suck. I've been lucky to be able to work out in three that were good. The worst was taught by a 1st dan who was actually good and he was the one that took on a big biker dude who walked in and wanted to see "if this stuff works." It worked, biker got to brown in a couple years...

    I bet your school doesn't have such cool graphics!

    link to teacher's name showed this (and why do I keep getting ignored for the Vegas Kaju parties and seminars is beyond me).
    As much as I love kajukenbo theres now 2 problems for me with it.

    1) too much groin strike eye gouge internal pointsparring bs out there. I got to meet a kaju student who had never sparred anything but point sparring.

    2) I made a post at the kajukenbo forums in which I asked if anyone felt the differance between "old school" and "new school" martial arts. I pretty much got flamed for it and had my name searched for across the internet to find "incriminating" evidence I guess. After this ordeal I canceled my account to the forums and I've resigned myself to disgusted with these guy's attitudes. It went from me seeing and hearing about real problems in the system to guys pretty much saying "well here its differant here its this" and so on and so fourth.

    the thread

    I've reread it and I know I was trying my best to avoid conflict or offense but obviously it doesn't work.

    I would also like to mention that they searched bullshido for my posts as well, and came up with a post I mentioned about the gaylord method - and how I also referenced that Sijo Emperado has stated he doesn't like when people take kajukenbo and call it their own with their own title. THIS IS WAS FROM AN ARTICLE POSTED ON KAJUKENBOINFO.COM. It was about this point I got aggrivated.

    the article

    Anyways, I finally get fed up when I was told that at 3 years of training in kajukenbo I had no liberty to make any judgements on it. I really lost quite a bit of respect for these guys because I was obviously ASKING THEM to put my doubts to rest and instead I got what the thread shows.

    Since then my opinion on kajukenbo has really taken a downhill spiral. My school rocks, our students are pretty good, my instructors are awesome... but when it comes to other school apperantly I am in no place to judge them in the name of kajukenbo so I'll judge them as a person who trains hard, a person who can turn on the TV and SEE people putting their all out in a fight as realistic as it can get, and a person who has met other martial artist. Kajukenbo is and probably always will be a TMA. Only time will tell if it becomes like most other tma's.
