Hi Tony,

Nice to meet you.  So you know, the boards require you disclose your full name and school affiliation (if any) in your signature.

In response to your questions, I think Ruben summed it up nicely.  In Kajukenbo, we don't like to "fight," we like to end situations and protect ourselves and our loved ones.  As Ruben said, we spar and do street fighting work in class, because that is the only way you can develop your skills.  When put to actual use, a Kajukenbo practitioner should end the fight in 3 seconds.  We are also a blended system, and thus we use whatever works for a given situation, regardless of what martial art the technique is from.  There is no dogma in Kajukenbo, beyond doing what works.

The reason why im taking this class is to protect myself and my love ones...

Hopefully what you get out of Kajukenbo is not necessarily how to fight but how to stay out of a fight.  Revenge is no virtue and is considered an abuse of the art by some.  My personal opinion ofcourse.

I agree with Sifu Timothy.  Kajukenbo is all about being assertive/aggressive and ending the attack as soon as possible, and in some situations pre-empting may be appropriate (as the guy goes for the weapon, for example).  However, seeking revenge later is a total abuse of the art, in my opinion.  If one of my students did that and I found out, I would refuse to teach them further; it is very much understood that Kajukenbo is for self-defense, not becoming a vigilante.

Revenge for a minor offense lowers your credibility as a martial artist.  ....Not that we all haven't wanted to do this.
 Some of course like to fight, but we never provoke it.....much like the Ferrari that doesn't need to race to prove it is fast.
    Train to train, fight if you have to, if you have to then fight to win.  Do what has to be done and go home.....
       Always take the high road, the path of the warrior, what goes around comes around for the bad guys......
    Kajukenbo practitioners are not the bad guys...we just look that way....

I wasn't going to reply on this one but I've been there.  First let me say that what everyone here has said is true, revenge does lower you credibility as a Martial Artist and you should always take the high road.  In the the end your a better person for it, fight when you have to.

With that said "We are talking about family"..... when I was a younger man, If you put your hands on my brother. I was coming and there will be a reckoning, win, loose or draw.  I'm trying to say I understand your situation and the way you feel about what happened.  Every one saying don't do it and why not to do it may not be what you want to hear but it's the best path for the situation.

in situations like this it's all about where your priorities are and how and where you gre up.


I wonder if Sijo wen't looking for the people responsible for his brothers death.

When a person chooses revenge, he/she becomes that what he/she despises.
