"Fairfield's Original Karate School"


We teach the Ramos method of Kajukenbo, which combines the hard hitting style of the Kenpo-based “Original Method” with that of the fast and flowing block-strike combination of Gung-Fu. We also teach the Cacoy method of Filipino stick fighting, Doce Pares, which is a complete fighting system that includes Eskrima, Eskrido, and Pangamot.  Sparring classes are also offered, giving students the opportunity to try new techniques. Throughout the year, Tony Ramos Kajukenbo will host special training seminars that are open to the public.  These include “Bring a Buddy to Training Night”, Doce Pares, and the ever popular Yawara training seminar.


 

Made for the Streets

Kajukenbo is a multi-faceted and ever evolving form of fighting system that lends itself to adaptability to meet the needs of the martial artist, as he is potentially faced with the threat from attackers who too have evolved in developing their means of aggression. As a Kajukenbo practitioner, he is able to defend himself against long range attacks, transitioning to in-close fighting, and utilizing ground techniques. He is also able to defend himself against multiple attackers who may even wield weapons. The ability to do this all rests in the knowledge that to the practitioner, anything on his person can be used as a weapon. Likewise, anything on the attacker can be considered a target or vulnerable area.

However, it is more than just recognizing the arsenal of weapons that are available to him and knowing where to strike. Equally as important are the precise placement and sequence of these strikes executed in a manner that is efficient, frequent, and devastating. There are no wasted movements. A block becomes a strike or is accompanied with a simultaneous strike. Motion flows with no apparent break in the flow, moving from striking area to striking area, which may include the groin, eyes, and throat. Some may say that the tactics employed by Kajukenbo are brutal, present an unfair advantage, and are downright dirty. And they would be right.
