The Kajukenbo Store / Looking for old, historic patches.
« Last post by ninjastyle77 on September 01, 2020, 05:59:22 PM »
The kempo/Kenpo martial arts that directly or indirectly descend from William Chow have been at the center of my life for almost 20 years. I have heard all that time about these legendary martial artists who helped to create and define what we all study today. I have always desired to collect and frame a few of the school patches from these men, and especially after designing my own school patch for my students some time ago I am very interested in any informal anyone could provide on the meaning and symbolism incorporated into these designs. I have read a very detailed explanation of the modern Kajukenbo patch design, which was great information.
To me these patches are a piece of history and a small connection to these legends I never was fortunate enough to meet. I know no-one would part with these lightly and I expect the cost could be high but I'm hoping someone here can help me on this quest.
I am looking mostly for original patches from Chow / Chun, Kajukenbo self defense Institute, Nick Cerio Kenpo, and George Pesare Kaito Gakko but perhaps there are historic school patches I'm overlooking too?
I understand some times patches can by tied to rank and while I absolutely will not wear these patches or make any claim to rank besides what I have been certified by my instructor I do understand if I am simply not permitted to own some of these and I will respect that.

Thank you.

Hi everyone, It's great to see the caf? up and running again. These have been tough times for all of us. My school has been closed and not supposed to open until September if I am lucky. Not even teaching much for my department, strange times. Take care everyone and hopefully everyone is well.

Is this Kajukenbo School Legitimate? / Re: What makes a McDojo?

In my opinion, it is when quantity or money is the priority over quality.  If it doesn't happen that it becomes a McDojo right away, it will happen sooner or later if the priorities are in the wrong place.  Money is fine and it is good to have a strong sense of the business aspects, but the focus should still be on quality.  If you focus on quality and take care of the people involved, people will still appreciate what you are doing and keep coming back.
Is this Kajukenbo School Legitimate? / What makes a McDojo?

What are some of the factors that make a McDojo? Recently, my school made a couple of changes, which seem to be largely in the interest of increasing business. Obviously, I understand the move, the lights have to stay on, and the food has to get on the table somehow. But how much is too much? Thanks for your help!
