im trying to choose between a local kajukenbo place.

http://www.stoneridgekajukenbo.com/index.htm

and a place called modern combatives.

http://www.smartpages.com/sp/smartpage/index.jsp?id=moderncombatives2&newUrl=/sp/smartpage/index.jsp&_requestid=38423

im not looking for help spiritually or self discipline. the second one seems more of what i am looking for.

i called both places and i havent been able to get ahold of the kajukenbo place, the second place when i talked to the guy he was real straight forward and said that they train hard and basically just get it done.

i looked into the kajukenbo and it seems really interesting so i guess im trying to compare the style and flexibility and use of the two.

also i dont know if i was high or what but it sounded like he said something about jeet kun do at the second place.

--Pissy :dontknow:

Hey, I just saw you're in San Antonio.

Go to the Straight-Blast Gym they have there. SBG is well-known for their quality.

And howdy to a fellow Texan.

I don't know why you say that about the Kajukenbo. The instructor's teacher is in with the boyz as far as I can tell and he calling it KSDI. I worked out in KSDI in Honolulu under Meex's reccomendation and it rocked (I was rocked, that's for sure).
I bet your school doesn't have such cool graphics!

Currently, there are a few distinct, "recognized" branches of Kajukenbo: Kenpo ("Emperado Method" or "Traditional Hard Style"), Tum Pai, Chu'an Fa, Wun Hop Kuen Do, and Gaylord Method.


I double dare one of you to confess to studying Gaylord Method.

I'm trying to picture the scene: As the ninjas drop from the surrounding trees, the hero strikes a dramatic stance and utters the famous words, "Your Ninjutsu is no match for my Gaylord Method"!

You should be able to try a class in each for free ... One seems more traditional (Kajukenbo) than the other.

Check em both out then make your choice.

I worked out in a Vargas (evil demon trickster nut biter) and Gaylord (Mr. Mellow and wise, got his 9th dan from Sijo Emperado himself, hard hitter and flowing moves that ended with a dislocated joint) school for years. I see that you are being "funny." Can I kick you for that?

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.

Way to read for comprehension. Your name is appropriate though. :knob:

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.
