Events > Seminars and competitions



SAVE THE DATE! On behalf of SGM DeChi Emperado and the Emperado Family, I have the pleasure to announce that the Official KSDI World Wide Tournament and Seminar will take place on July 1st and 2nd 2016 at the Westgate Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.......(more to follow soon)

 Sijo’s vision was to encourage and develop a martial art that was effective and ever evolving and he accomplished just that….Kajukenbo.

Sijo’s desire was to spread Kajukenbo across the world and have it continuously grow and live FOREVA! He did just that, and we carry his desire on.

Sijo’s challenge was to bring Kajukenbo together, to gather united and support each other’s organization, lineage, schools, and individual students. This challenge is now left to us, those who practice the art and honor Sijo.

The seed of Kajukenbo was planted and nurtured by Sijo many years ago, it’s time we move towards his dream unfinished…….

In the Spirit of Sijo, the Kajukenbo Self Defense Institute World Wide calls upon ALL Kajukenbo warriors throughout the world, all nations, organizations, lineages, and schools to “Battlefield Las Vegas 2016—KSDI WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!” Spread the word worldwide for the Kajukenbo event of a lifetime.

“……….We all share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together”
 ~Kofi Annan

we shall all bond together for the love of Sijo!!!!
