I do study Kajukenbo Tum Pai but I would really love to study with Mushi.  His book is still read today.  Plus deep down I am still a sword fighter and who better to learn sword fighting than Mushi.

Since I am currently studying the Ramos Method I would love to learn from Augung Tony Ramos.  Of course it shouldn't have to be said, but I would also love to train with Sijo Emperado.  Why not just go to the source - RIGHT!

Hmmm, if I could train with anyone  . . . I would simply continue my training with my current Instructor because when I do, I receive the knowledge of:

Sigung Jesse Corpus
Grand Master Emil Bautista
Aghung Tony Ramos
Sijo Emperado

I would love to train with Sijo, as many people have already expressed.

i would also love to train with my Sifu, GM Dacascos, more regularly than I do now.

I would have loved to be there when Kaju was being developed and train with all the founders, and the pioneers who brought it to the mainland.

There are many great instructors who are still alive I would love to train with.. I will work on that before it is too late..

Here is a short list of the great warriors no longer with us I wish I could have trained with...

 - Bruce Lee
 - Professor Chow
 - Musashi
 - Don Draeger
 - Ed Parker
 - Sif Kufferath
 - Henry Okazaki

And many others, but gotta go... May add more later.

Outside of Kajukenbo it would be between Choki Motobu, Count Dante or The American Dream Dusty Rhodes.

Don't tell me how much you honor Sijo, if you don't respect his wishes.

 First:  Grandmaster Al Dela Cruz (He is my teacher now). To continue to learn ChuAnFa. I will always
         be learning hard style/soft style and everything in between.

Second (in any order):  Michelle Yeoh, Ziyi Zhang, Michelle Krasnoo ("Mouse").
                                 Hope I don't have to explain why. ;)

I'd have to pass on training with Mouse - my wife would kill me...  ;D

I would love to train with some of the current folks: Sigung Bono, Prof Bishop, Thomas Mitose, Emil Bautista (no offense meant to people NOT listed - just no room :) )
And some not-so-current folks: Bruce Lee, Prof Chow, James Mitose
Naturally, I would have loved to have been around to train with the first round of Kajukenbo Black Belts.

I admired the power of Bruddah Abe, Joe Black, and Professor Chow.  The speed of Sid Asuncion.  Would have liked to meet Woodrow McCandless and Joe Emperado.

I traveled all over Asia while in the military and saw alot of talented folks.  After the seminar in Vegas, I realized the Ohana has instructors that are as good as anybody anywhere, if not better.  Hats off to all the seniors that continue to inspire us.

I think my choice would be GM Aleju Reyes and GM Richard Peralta.

Both Grand Masters are in my Kaju lineage and would like to have met then and train with them.

It would have to be Sijo first, Prof. Chow, and Jackie Chan (I think he would be a blast to train with).

GM Al Novak, Sifu Rich Maineti-  to learn more of the Chinese soft-forms and Kung-Fu.

GM James Juarez- Fighting techniques and to just train.

Sigung Bono-JKD, Grappling

Sifu J. Macalolooy-Grappling

Prof. J. Bautista- to train. In my opinion he has more experience than most in Kajukenbo, being exposed to Martial Arts since he was probably in diapers.   

If I could afford it I would train with one or all.
