    Clarfield Kajukenbo and Self Defense???

    Clarfield Kajukenbo and Self Defense?????
    1301 E University Dr
    Tempe, AZ 85281


    Has anybody else tried this place out??--small dirty gym--hidden in the back of a dark complex by a bar--of all places--I am a brown belt in Kajukenbo --hard training--real teachniques and heard this place was open--so I decided to try of their free introductory classes-so see how good they really are-----OMG--what a joke---The Instructor and apparently owner Rob was teaching that night--and was teaching basic Kajukenbo forms incorrectly!!! How is this person supposedly a 2nd degree black belt--it look like he was teaching a weak form of some Kung Fu---It was hard to keep my mouth shut as I am not supposed to show up a supposedly higher ranked Martial Artist-I decided to see what else the night workout held--some basic exercises and then some routines I have seen other MMA Gyms --but this is a Kajukenbo class--not an MMA class--and then Rob--a small skinny guy--started teaching some very robotic alleged self defense moves (1-2-3) using a baton, knofe and gun--again--OMG--what a joke--if you tried this stuff--to defend yourself--you would get killed...--I couldnt take it anymore--and excused myself---DOES anyone know who belted this guy??--as a fellow KAJUKENBO practitioner--I was appalled at what this dojo claims to be a Kajukenbo class---

    #1 - you may be interested to learn how punctuation works. Contact me for reasonable rates.

    #2 - you have posted this in the section of Bullshido reserved for serious discussion and investigation. A mod will be by shortly to move this to an appropriate forum.

    #3 - lurk and read, until you have a better understanding of how the site works. You may wish to post solely in the newbie section until then.

      "OMG" should never be used in MABS. Ever. You used it twice. This makes your post highly questionable.

        Oh well, thanks for posting anyway. I'm interested in how Kaju and Hawaiian Kempo schools are doing. That said, you should read some more before posting too much. Obviously some people are rather serious about what's proper.

        We had a bb from a Mainland branch and by the end of class he was really tired and red faced gasping and had his uniform all hanging out. He said that we worked out way harder than they did on the mainland. Which is too bad but expected...

                    He seems to only have an affiliation with a Kempo Instructor...

                      One guy looked like he had boxed some before, looked better than the instructor in sparring. I wonder if the instructor was purposely leaving openings for the students to exploit (I do this in Judo a lot when doing randori with students).

                      I'm not an expert on striking though...

                        no--I think he was just that bad---his footwork was horrible---my Sifu used to leave us openings--but did so while using proper techniques-(to protect himself as a BB should)-this guy really does not have the cooridination .....poor technique-poor athleticism..

                            God damn I HATE fucking stupid ass jumping jacks. What a worthless crap exercise. One thing I loved about Universal Kempo was that their warmups were shrimping and full mount sweeps. NO fucking stupid ass jumping jacks. As a sr. bb type guy I have to hold my mouth shut if they are done in class an wait til class is over to explain to the instructor just how worthless fucking stupid ass jumping jacks are. Gad I"m tired of shitty conditioning crap (not that I can keep up anyway).

                              As a senior bb type guy, how would you rate the rest of what you saw in the video posted?
