Kajukenbo Karate Lessons

My name is Yaju and I am a 15 year old black belt in Kajukenbo karate. I am interested in teaching classes on Sunday mornings from 10am- 11am. (During the summer, additional classes and timings will be offered.)
What is Kajukenbo? Kajukenbo is a highly effective fusion of four different martial arts: Korean Karate, Ju-jitsu, Kenpo, and Kung Fu. Practical applications of Kajukenbo show that this karate is successful in blocking and taking down attackers. When it comes to self-defense, strong, linear punches and strikes mixed with the ingenuity of kung fu is a lethal mix.
Kajukenbo spurred my passion for the martial art. I want to keep doing Kajukenbo forever, because it’s not just defense against another person; its defense against the factors in life that will bring you down.
After every class, I felt less stressed and more confident in other aspects of my life as well. I found my grades rising and my social life becoming happier. Kajukenbo allowed me to take charge of my life and pursue a martial art with passion. As a girl, I learnt to defend myself and use size and body weight to my advantage. Now, I realize that Kajukenbo is the art that drives me and has given me the confidence and assurance I need in other areas of life.

Cost & Contact Details: Classes are one hour each on Sunday mornings from 10-11 am in my garage in the Gale Ranch area of San Ramon. Cost is $7 per class. For more information on class details, location, Kajukenbo, or my experiences with it, email me at [email protected] or call me at (510) 792 5622.
