Kajukenbo Classes in Austin, TexasWhile Kajukenbo is a nationally recognized art with many instructors, many new students still ask me “What is Kajukenbo?”. Kajukenbo is actually America’s first mixed martial art. It was developed in Hawaii after WW2 as a real world self defense system for locals to protect themselves against violent sailors. By nature of being a self defense art, Kajukenbo focuses on techniques that end fights quickly and efficiently.
Kajukenbo combines Karate (‘Ka’), Judo (‘ju’), Kenpo (‘ken’), and Boxing (‘bo’)
Techniques and Body Mechanics
Our classes develop students ability to recognize and respond to attacks. By studying body mechanics and training with other students in the dojo, you will learn the 8 ways an attack can come at you. With repetition and coaching from master level instructors, you will learn your own responses that work best for you. As students progress from beginners to masters, they will develop their own unique style.
The Difference Between Us and MMA-Style Fitness Gyms
Developing an effective response to real world threats means learning how to defend yourself against larger opponents or opponents with weapons. Our classes teach techniques that are not typically included in a ‘MMA Gym’ environment. Rather than focus on fighting competitions, Kajukenbo prides itself on being brutal, overkill, and powerful in real world situations.
