We all knew it was broken. However, Tim the Warrior finished the entire class, which was focused on pendulum kicks.

That is the nature of the drill, from here each person tries to hit the other while staying in contact and simultaneously defending.
Brother Andy Chadwick found this animation of a hip throw counter which he finds “Kinda badass”.
It reminds me of a few I’ve seen but takes a bit of acrobatic skill. Smashing your knee on the asphalt is not ideal either.
I hope to see you again soon Andy, we miss you.

Brother Tim got the opportunity to meet & train with Guro Richard Bustillo at the USMAA Training Camp on August 3rd!
Guro Bustillo trained as a Kajukenbo man back in the day, before he became known for his expertise in Jeet Kune Do and Cacoy Doce Pares Eskrima.
That might be helpful, since the Belt test is on Saturday, August 10th at 07:00 — less than a week away people!
I am sure Brother Tim will have a few stories to share with us all.
Gathering of the Ohana: Friday, July 19 2013 has been cancelled due to heat. We will schedule something else.

I used to give copies of this out in class because many of the techniques presented are identical to our own.
Unfortunately it appears to be out of print now.
I recommend picking up a copy if you see it somewhere. Click on one of the vendor links or scan the bar code with your smartphone.
One of our own — CQB Kajukenbo black belt & Heavyweight Submission Fighting Champion — Ron Jones participated!
“MuckFest™ MS is the nation’s best mud and obstacle fun-run. But it’s so much more. Made with mud, sweat and cheers, the five-mile course features a gauntlet of muck-filled mazes, pits and craters with over twenty gigantic steel obstacles. The fun doesn’t stop when you slide over the finish line. There’s beer, great food and music in the MuckFestival area. We operate on “the more, the muckier” principle, so bring your friends and family to join in the hilarious spills and thrills. We even have a specially-designed mucky playlot for the kids called Lil’ Muckers.
And here’s the best part: 100% of our fundraising dollars go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society—helping to prove that you can have loads of dirty fun and feel good about it in the morning.”
