Originally from the Kajukenbo Cafe



(1) There are about 4 hours of seminars on Saturday, then the belt testing.

(2) There is a dinner with the Kajukenbo GM’s Friday night if you are there.

(3) GM Torok has a JKD, Jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai background, but GM Emil Bautista brought him in under the Emperado method.  This is a different lineage from ours.

(4) My students only pay the $35 “Early Registration” rate, even if you pay at the door.

(5) There is a possibility that I might teach a seminar.

(6) Bring & wear your uniforms and belts if you attend, of course.
