Dear Kaju AZ Ohana:
After prayerful and thoughtful consideration over the past few months and with the ongoing COVID situation, we have decided to close Kajukenbo Arizona. If you know the Corder family and our philosophy, you know this was a very hard decision for us to make. The ongoing government restrictions coupled with market indications have made it impossible for us to continue operating. We know many families and businesses have it as bad or much worse than us, and we pray for their survival.
Our last day of classes for our remaining students will be August 27th.
Thank you for your support, past and present! We are grateful for the relationships, experiences and memories we have had during the past 14 years. We wish you luck and joy in your future endeavors.
The Corder Family
Professor & Aunty, Sifu Nic, Sifu Cam, Ms. Stefanie and the Kaju AZ Instructors
Street Smart Self Defense for All
Kajukenbo was founded in 1947 at Palama Settlement on Oahu, Hawaii. It was developed out of a group calling themselves the “Black Belt Society”, which consisted of black belts from various martial arts backgrounds who met to train and learn with each other. This was the beginning of an evolutionary, adaptive style designed to combine the most useful aspects of the arts.
Kajukenbo Arizona introduces students to all that Kajukenbo has to offer. The curriculum includes self defense, street fighting, kata forms, and the movements that make up the foundation of the style. You will learn grappling, grab defenses, hand drills and basic sparring exercises. Kajukenbo uses what works and discards the rest. This is why Kajukenbo can offer such diverse material to people with differing abilities. Kajukenbo Arizona’s ultimate goal is to help martial artists become well-rounded individuals. Traditional Kaju students gain real self-defense skills, resolve their fears and gain self-esteem.
