Emperado’s (Original Method)

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.

Kajukenbo Chuan’ Fa (Fist Style)
SGM Al Dela Cruz: Chuan ‘Fa (Fist Style)
Originating in the early 60’s in Hawaii. Chuan’ Fa derived from the original Tum Pai concept but it took on its own movement from both Chinese & American boxing. Chuan ‘Fa focuses limb destruction thru rapid open and closed hand techniques which allows for an effective inside fighting range.
Tum Pai
Kajukenbo Tum Pai (Central Way)

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).

SGM Al Dacascos: Wun Hop Kuen Do (WHKD):                                                                   Also known as “The Combined Fist Art”
WHKD derived from the Original Kajukenbo System, Original Tum Pai and      Chuan ‘Fa; WHKD is a hard and soft continual evolution of constant full body strikes (hands, feet, elbows, knees, hips, head) that focuses on economizing movement. WHKD today, is not WHKD tomorrow, as it is always evolving but it is still WHKD.
