I began training in 1997 with about a two year gap of non training from '01-'03.  It is amazing how much info one can lose but even more amazing how much one will gain and retain with good teaching and self motivation. :)

I began training in Kajukenbo in 1975. My Kajukenbo teachers have been:

Tony Ramos
Calvin Shin
Emil Bautista
Joe Davis

From these teachers I have learned what I know. Grandmaster Emil Bautista has been my primary teacher for many years. He is my role model and inspiration.

I have been training in Kajukenbo for one year now. Actually it is a Christian Kajukenbo class in Wood River IL. My 9 year old son and 10 year old daughter have been training for  18 months now. I have no prior martial arts experience and have always wanted to learn. I did some high school wrestling and some heavy
working out in the Navy. At 34 years old it was tough to
get back in physical shape, and still getting there. My energy levels are up, my confidence is higher, and I'm doing something besides work work work all the time.
My kids seem to have natural ability, and they are so flexible and limber! I know this will be a lifelong endeavor for them, and it's great to be spending the time with them. I don't mean to be long winded - this is my first post.  I am training under Sifu Jim Fassler. Greetings and Respect to all !!

I started in 1962 with Danzan Ryu then Kajukenbo shortly after that.  1969 added Shaolin Kenpo to the mix from a black belt student of Sid Asuncion.  1990 added Okinawa Kobudo.

just can't stop learning and practicing.  45 years is not enough.

That's me, too.  Started with Tae Kwon Do in '84.  Practiced hardcore through high school.  Instructor died in '87.  Practiced and taught on an off until '89.  Went on a mission for my church for 2 years.  More practicing and teach on and off.  Couple months of Judo in there.  Started Kajukenbo where I am at now in 2004 with some hiatuses (hiatii?) for babies.

I started my training in 1967, at 14, in a Japanese system called Chito Ryu. My instructor had to move in 1969 (he was a university professor who received a job in another city), did Japanese Kempo for a couple of years. Met my first Kajukenbo instructor in 1971 been here ever since. Met Sijo in 1975, first trip to Hawaii in 1977. Started FMA in 1981. Since then added some stuff and met a lot of great people.
