    dragon star kung fu/kajukenbo

    Anybody had any experience with dragon star kung fu? It's located off of 164th street in vancouver wa. The instructor's name is Tom burns. Anybody trained with him? Their style is kajukenbo Tum Pai I believe. The only kajukenbo I've had any experience with is under Veon Mcarroll (heavy ke_po based). I would have to give them a -1 for the name(dragon star)lol. Anyway I'm going to go watch a class tomorrow or wednesday night. I will post my opinion if anybody want's to hear it after I watch the class. I have nothing but positive things to say about the kajukenbo I was exposed to in tucson under mr. Mcarroll so I'm hopeing this will be similar. Any info would be appreciated. thanks!

    Kajukenbo Tum Pai is (for the most part) the internal arts of Kajukenbo. Basically internal martial arts go street fighting.

    As a related note, since the Coov is near Portland, there are quite a few Kaju and WHKD schools/teachers in the Portland area. Let me know if you are interested, and I will send you what info I can.

    They are not that similar actually, besides the influence of kung fu on both. They may have some of the same forms, but that is more a result of shared history (which is a bit complicated, but I am more than willing to explain if you are interested) and individual instructors. As a set curriculum I am 90% sure we don't share forms. As for other things, we do share the same kung fu flow but Tum Pai is much more focused on the internal arts than WHKD. We have it, but much it's much more ancillary to us.

    I have been a student at Dragon Star for about 5 months now. I love the school and Sifu Tom is an awesome teacher.
