SEPTEMBER

Kajukenbo and Filipino Martial Arts share a lot of history and practitioners. Many of the pioneers of Kajukenbo, including the founder, Sijo Adriano Emperado, were Filipinos or of Filipino descent.

From the beginning, Kajukenbo included stick fighting techniques (or how they refer as clubs) and knives which were very common weapons used back then. 

It is of no surprise that many Kajukenbo practitioners also practice Filipino Martial Arts to incorporate some of these concepts to their practice. This includes some of the pioneers like Tony Ramos.  

Also, many Filipino Martial Arts practitioners practice Kajukenbo for its efficiency and compatibility, especially for empty hands techniques. Because of its eclecticism, Kajukenbo is a very adaptable martial art.
