    So how different is your training in kenpo from what you studied in kajukenbo?

    Well, for one, the Physics behind the movements and the rapid fire strikes that kenpo has is a little different. Learning the actual "why we do something" has been overwhelming helpful when learning the techniques. There are a lot of principles and concepts in kenpo that I do not remember touching on in Kajukenbo. So far, I like kenpo and will continue in it. Once I can remember some Kajukenbo applications, I will try to insert them in techniques.
