Kajukenbo

Kajukenbo is a hybrid martial art that combines Karate, Judo, Jujutsu, Kenpo, and Chinese Boxing. It was invented in 1947 in Oahu, Hawaii, at the Palamas Settlements, to deal with local crime, as well as to help the people defend themselves from U.S. Navy sailors who would drink and fight with the locals. The inventors were Sijo Adriano Emperado, Peter Young Yil Choo, Joe Holck, Frank Ordonez, and Clarence Chang, who called themselves the Black Belt Society. The name works in two ways: "ka" ("long life"), "ju" ("happiness"), "ken" ("fist"), "bo" ("style") or "ka" ("karate"), "ju" ("judo"/"jujutsu"), "ken" ("kenpo"), "bo" (Chinese "boxing").
