    Aloha Kempo brothers and sisters. I am writing to inform you of a newly published book that will be soon be available; titled "Black Robe" The Kempo/Kajukenbo Connection. The book entails a little of my martial arts journey in the Kempo/Kajukenbo system. Also a chapter on my instructor Professor Walter Leo Niakala Godin, of his Kajukenbo beginnings and a chapter on his instructor the great Joe Emperado. The chapter explains in detail of what exactly happened on Memorial Day in 1958. As was told to the detectives by the eye witnesses and the assailants stated in the police transcripts. It also states the courts verdict of the case and the aftermath of the three assailants. I also write about 4 of the 5 founders of Kajukenbo, (and a lost Kajukenbo legacy of a 6th founder) as told to me by Kajukenbo Co-Founder Frank Ordonez. The omission of Sijo Adriano in the chapter is not in anyway to downplay or disrespect Sijo Emperado. Countless publications , magazine articles, videos and dvd's have been made about Sijo's life and method of Kajukenbo; and I would just be repeating what others have known for many years. One more publication will not add to his greatness he made in martial arts history. Nor will his omission take away anything. I wanted to give an overview about the other four who played an equal part in developing Kajukenbo, but somehow became more unhearald. But I will add; I wrote a short tribute to Sijo Emperado. The final chapter will be illustrated effective Kempo/Kajukenbo street self-defense techniques, illustrated by Kempo/Kajukenbo stylist: David Kovar, David Ducay, Tommy Lam, Frank Robello, Andrew Evans and Jason Groff. The segment is in no way meant to compare superiorority of one method over another. But to illustrate Kempo and Kajukenbo street techniques at it's highest levels and it's diversity and progression through out the years. The foreword is written by Senior Grandmaster Eugene Sedeno first generation black belt under Walter Godin. The book will be available in mid July or early August. The website will be made prior to the books print. The book I'm sure will be a subject of controversy in the Kempo and Kajukenbo world and will probably be boycotted by many. Should you have any questions please email me fightingarts@msn.com

    Hi there, also new.
    I didn't want to start by making my own thread that would be lost in a sea of "Hi Im new" threads...nor is it my intention to hijack anyone else's thunder on theirs.
    Just figured Id say hi and Ive been reading/surfing this page for some time and figured it was time to join.
    About me...I like Kenpo.
