    kajukenbo or modern combatives

    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/smartpa...equestid=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!

    link to teacher's name showed this (and why do I keep getting ignored for the Vegas Kaju parties and seminars is beyond me).

    Nothing current
    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?
