After some feeling some dissidence between myself and my current school on the way training should be conducted, I felt it was time to move on, and began looking around. As I posted in a thread a few months ago, I came across this Kajukenbo school near my house that had always seemed rather popular, but never really caught my attention. Then one night, while I was running around with some buddies of mine, I saw the sign again and something compelled me to look it up, and I began exchanging emails with the instructor, who invited me to attend a few free classes. I fell in love, instantly. The art has everything, a powerful self-defense aspect taught with a healthy sports approach, a teacher who cares deeply for his students and has a very individual way of teaching, and the art itself is so much more beautiful than I could have imagined, and I began to appreciate kata so much more upon seeing those practiced and then their subsequent applications in a technique. Basically the point of this thread is to say... I'm a Kajukenbo student!
