Adult Kaju

Our adult curriculum includes self defense, street fighting, ground fighting, kata forms, and the movements that make up the foundation of the Kajukenbo style. You will learn grappling, grab defenses, hand drills, and basic sparring exercises. You will learn how to defend yourself in different situations with different types of attack scenarios.

Additionally students can enroll in our Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu program that blends sport competition grappling with practical ground self defense.

The Corder family and all of the instructors have done a wonderful job of sharing their knowledge and excitement of the Kajukenbo art with us. You will be encouraged to develop at your pace, and challenged every day.

Our system has roots in Hawaiian Kempo, Kajukenbo, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. Our martial arts program emphasizes practical, down to earth, self-defense. We train with realistic, street-scenario drills and show adaptability for individual abilities. Just the basic, straightforward elements of Kajukenbo which are based on the principle of: “Avoid, Contact, Take down, and Ground Work”.

We utilize the PIT and CrossPIT for our mixed martial arts (MMA) and our strength and cardio conditioning. CrossPIT has been recognized as an intense system for athletes to train to prepare for a variety of physical events. Our CrossPIT can be scaled to accommodate any individual, beginner or advanced.
