Excellent Article on Kajukenbo
Third story on this page (after Filipino Martial Arts and Muay Thai): http://www.realfighting.com/issue7/rharris.html
Pretty cool article. Some BS in there like about Bodhidharma teaching Kenpo (or any form of martial art for that matter), and some silly sounding stuff - Sijo desecrated corpses as a janitor to practice joint locks and breaks?? Gotta ask Prof. Bishop about that one.
But interesting article nonetheless :)
Knowing is not enough, you must apply...
...Willing is not enough you must do
I found a few inaccuracies in the article. Such is the way legends are started.

I never heard the mortuary story, or of him ever working as a janitor. And I'm sure that if he had been mutilating corpses in a mortuary, he wouldn't have gotten the law enforcement jobs he worked for 15 years.
