Gentlemen:

Leave the post unattended for a while and I see it turned into a true KAJU HELL.  :P  >:( ;)

Yes, I agree gentlemen please go and talk privately. It's great to catch up with ol'friends but we should stick to the post.

Let's contribute to the post not take away from it.  ;D

Thank you inadvance.

Kajutexm,

"Gentlemen, This is an interesting subject I mean no disrespect but you can e mail each other privately.  I feel that you are taking away from the subject and any other post in the cafe when you start chatting on a subject post and get away from it."

Good response, I watch this forum kind of like a train wreck.  Something bad happening but you can't help but watch it.  I agree, use the email or phone if you want to chat.  Just my feelings.

If I may make a suggestion.  We all know that the main purpose of this forum is to provide a place for  communication and discussions amonst the Kajukenbo Ohana.  

If we utilize the differant sections of this forum you can probably talk about anything and everything.  
But, it does make for better reading and discussions if a specific topic is kept specific.

In this case the topic was strayed from, unintentionally.  And it was right for some members to try and bring this thread back on topic.  
But, the side discussion is also important to some of the members.  

So my suggestions would be:
1. Post black belt promotions in the "Events and Announcements" section.  I'm sure many members, myself included, are interested in knowing about black belt promotions.  It also gives us the opportunity to extend our congratulations.
2.  Discussions like the one between Sifu Gerry and Sifu Goldade would probably be best done in the "Gaylord Method" section, since it is about a important event in their association, and should be discussed.  This would also probably attract the participation of other KAA members as well.  

What's nice about the differant sections is that you can discuss things specific to your organization, association, branch, etc., all in one forum.  And it provides all the members with information on all areas of Kajukenbo.

Here's a good one for Kaju hell... I work as an athletic trainer in the Hawaii High School system.  This past Saturday, my dojo was holding its 2nd Annual Tournament.  Needless to say, things are still being worked out, but ran better than last year.  

Well, of course we had to have Volleyball games at the high school and we were hosting.  So, I had to be at all VB games before being able to go the tournament.  I was calling another cell to see where they were.  I missed kata, weapons kata, and the demos.  Thank God for the demos or I would never have made it.  VB ran long and I left work around 1PM.  Wait, it gets better.  There is a car in front of me going 45 in a 55 with no way of passing.  Oh well, more delays.

Finally get there.  I'm tired, rushing to change and check in for the kumite.  They are already on the 12-14 age group.  Hurry, hurry, hurry.  Come to find out, there are no brown belt women.  Three dropped out!!!  So, I asked to go Black belt.  No black belt women!  I got stuck with the brown belt men.  No problem.  I'll do it.  I finish fourth and got a medal.  Here's the hell, I should have had 3rd, but I wasn't going to argue point calls.  The judges missed a couple of really good shots.  Sigung was smiling on the side and said "hey, don't worry, he missed the calls.  You did great"  All the students said the same thing from my dojo.  All were proud.

I guess the real hell was trying to finish work, drive the 12 miles, get changed, and fight all in a short time.  I did it, but was I tired by the end.  Also, we had clean up!!!

Glad that when I go to Maui, I won't be working in the morning....

Aloha,
brandi

Greetings  All:

Well, well, well I guess we have beat Kaju Hell as much as we possibly could in one life time.  ;)

Let's try to think of something more positive now. How about KAJU HEAVEN?  ???

hmmm.......I've experienced this too.  ;D

What do you think KAJU Heaven is and who do you think is there?

And...no Sifu Mark Gerry you may not put Sibak Esther in Kaju Heavean.  :P  ;)

For me Kaju Heaven is when I learn something new about a technique that I have been doing forever. My instructor says a word and a BIG light goes on. I finally got that missing piece that I had been searching.

Now, let's shed a little love, shall we or a little Kaju love.  :) ;) ;D :D

For me so far, Kaju-Heaven was saturday morning brown/black belt workouts in Prof. Forbach's garage, with Sijo sitting in his chair watching and advising.  The old gara-dojo in San Clemente.  People came from as far as Spain and Germany to train in that garage.

Mostly I'd say it's Kaju heaven or we all wouldn't be doing it for as much and long as we do.  The only Kaju hell I've seen is the arguing for no reason, usually political.  Oh yeh and let's keep Esther out of it boys and girls.  Peace ;D

I agree Sigung Bono most Kaju hell is all the back biting, stabbing and political game some choose to play.  :-\

Kaju Heaven is also when those in your art classmates/friends/instructors become your family.  :) Your relationship/training goes to that next level. It's an amazing feeling.

Interesting I see we had more to say about Kaju Hell than Kaju Heaven.  ::)

Why is that? Just my humble observation.  ;)

One of those things that make you go  ???.

Either people don't want to write about it? Or there are more unahappy matial artists?

As someone who is hoping to have there own school in the future I am concerned. I would be even more concerned if I had a school right now.  :-\

What do you think?

Kaju Heaven is when you watch your students grow into the martial artist that you thought they would be.  When you watch them grow and progress.  

Kaju hell is when it snows or rains and you got to run in it or you got to Que in it?     ;)
