    KAJUKENBO

    Any opionions about this style?? I'm looking for a "traditional" style that is realistic in its techniques and training.

    Also wanted to know if any Kanjukenbo folks had any inside info or personal experiences with the Kajukenbo school in San Antonio (http://www.stoneridgekajukenbo.com/).....

    I've never done it, but I'd suggest Judo.

    Like everything else, the realism of the techniques and training depends heavily on the individual schools. I'm afraid I can't help you with that particular schools, but I've worked with and been impressed by kajukenbo folks before (of course, I come from a ke?po background, so I'm easily impressed).

    Why the draw toward a 'traditional' style?

    Oncelost:

    Can't say that I can give a definitive answer to your question.

    I've always been drawn to the "traditional" arts. Some of the things that folks label as "bullshido" are things that I don't mind: uniforms, ceremony, bowing, family atmosphere, etc. Ihave absolutely nothing against "non-traditional" arts (whatever the heck that means) but I haven't really developed an interest in them....However, who knows what will happen in the future??!!

    Fair enough. I was just curious - I don't believe tradition is a weakness unless and until it becomes a substitute for the continual testing process of one's self and one's martial art. For many people here, 'traditional' means "The founder of our system, who died 600 years ago, used this stuff to fight effectively, so I can too!" That isn't always the case, but it seems more prevalent among certain arts.

    Give the kajukenbo a try! Don't forget to post a dojo review...

    Firstly, a lot of those things aren't nescasarily bullshido. Bullshido is sub-par, unrealistic training.

    Bear in mind most traditional arts are anything but. The tradition is artificial, designed to entice the layman with eastern mystique, and the promise of ancient deadly secrets. Fact is, a lot of the arts espoused here have more tradition than you'd believe. Wrestling is far older than most 'traditional' arts, so is judo, Boxing, muay thai, savate, even BJJ and SAMBO ('modern' combat sports) are older than a lot of the stuff out there.

    So you have to ask yourself, why are you attracted to 'tradition' in the first place? Be honest with yourself about what you want from your training.

    That's the most subtle pick-up line I've ever heard from you, Omega...

    BTW, one of the folks I was impressed with was a stunningly gorgeous gal with ginormous gazangas...she and my wife do unspeakably naughty things together (at least in my head), so I guess you're right after all.
