WKO DVD Preview

John Bishop:
This preview clip has Sijo Emperado, GM Joe Davis, GM Gary Forbach, Professor Allen Abad, Sigung Joe Tarango, Sigung Bill Rodriguez, and Sigung Ray Rosales.  (Although these mpegs are much lower in picture quality then the hi-definition DVD's, they give you a idea of the material the DVD's contain).

Sigung Bishop,

Excellent video resolution on my media player for the two previews, and informative as a trailer or preview of what's on the DVD.  Thanks for the hard work to make it available on this site.  Watching Sijo Emperado execute his skills and techniques gives me a glimpse of how our art is taught and passed down.  I've had a couple of classes with Great Grandmaster Gaylord.  As soon as I saw Sijo execute in the first video GGrandmaster Gaylord popped into my head.  To watch the Masters of Kajukenbo demonstrate their teaching is to see skill and knowledge owned by every cell of their bodies.  They also reminded so clearly of Professor Coleen*.  They know...they show..they teach...they are that what we seek to be, at least for me, on this journey.  Of course, I'm a turtle compared to so many of my sisters and brothers, but I know what it's suppose to be like from point A to B to Z and then back to A again. :o.  I have always thought we are an awesome art as so aptly demonstrated by the videos.

(*In one of my earlier posts I explained that I referred to Professor Coleen as Sifu as that was her wish before she died to her students.  However, I also realize that to do so here might indicate a lack of respect and neither do I wish to explain every time I make reference to Professor Coleen why I refer to her as Sifu.  So, I think for the Cafe, I'll refer to Professor Coleen as Professor Coleen...just an FYI for those who might have read that in an earlier post. :)  Thanks again.

Chief Instructor:
Rockatear,

I never judge someone by a single post. I can tell from your other posts that you are a respectful person. Just like in self-defense, one should never just haul off and start swinging. This is a friendly community where other martial artists are invited to learn about Kajukenbo and share their thoughts. I believe the rest of the Kaju Cafe are of like mind.

Take care,
Andrew

p.s. Thank you to the Cafe for being such a wonderful and open community. Last but not least, thank you to Sigung Bishop, Sijo Emperado, GM Forbach, Professor Abad, Sigung Tarango, and Sigung Rosales for helping to propagate Kajukenbo.

She was both.  She was your "Sifu" (teacher), and her official title and rank was "Professor".  So your Sifu was Professor Coleen.

Looks good.  I would like to see a preview of a technique being taught, however... even the best produced video series have been ruined by poor camera angles, bad sound, or poor editing (not to say that will be present here).  However, in some videos I've looked at buying, I've steered clear because the actual value of the tapes, instruction, was not present.  It would be great to see a segment or entire techniqe being demonstrated and explained that is indiative of the series, so we may get a clear picture of what is being made available.
