My creedo is "Bridging the Gap" Traditional/Sport/Street Martial Arts...
As kajukenbo practitioners we are blessed to have theory's of all the above (once again, God bless you Sijo)

We can, and should train all aspects of the above.

A typical class for me is as follows:
Traditional...Traditional salute/prayer...Qi Gong warm up/stretching/kaju curriculum, or DZR Curriculum, or Escrima Curiculum
Sport..........bag work, stand up combo's, clinch work, ground work,  freestyle rounds
Street.........No equipment fighting, knife theory's/sparring, impact weapon theory's/sparring (live stick) weapon grappling (knife/stick/gun)
parking lot simulated ammunition firefights (airsoft)

I truly try and fit all the above into each class, it's ALL Kaju to me....:-)
