Sijo Adriano D. Emperado: Kajukenbo Kenpo-Karate (Emperado’s Original Method) “Original Method” is an empty handed hardline style of self-defense that uses eight directional foot-work and open & closed hand parries and strikes. The object is to slip or strike the attack, neutralize the attacker with a stunning blow allowing the practitioner to throw down the opponent with a judo or jujitsu movement for a finishing groundwork or follow up technique. This style of self-defense can be applied in a variety of ways for a series of different attacks; including attacks against knifes, clubs and multiple man attacks. All other styles and branches are based of the original methods self defense concept of finishishg the opponent.
GM Jon Loren: Kajukenbo Tum Pai (Central Way) The principle of Tum Pai is moving off the center line by using Tai-Chi principles to off- balance the attacker; this explains the meaning of Tum Pai which translates to “Central Way”. The core concepts are: Getting out of the line of fire and taking over the balance of your opponent. The Tum Pai also includes energy principals, and a great deal of Environmental Training “ET” (Training in the outside elements).
