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.

Community Average Scores – New way to measure homeschoolers performance

“Is my child’s performance good enough?” This question continually plagues the parents of homeschooled children including me. Over last few months, I have tried to explore several answers to this questions. I have made my son take chapter tests as well as periodic exams. However, I have found that scores sometimes can vary depending on evaluators. Standardized tests are another way and they can be expensive. Recently, I came across a very cool site and created an online learning account with IntelliSeeds ( I was intrigued with their concept of community average scores. Essentially, IntelliSeeds has several hundred practice and speed assessments for Math and Logical Reasoning. When my son does his practice, Intelliseeds generates a detailed report and compares my child’s score with a community average across all their user base. I have found this a neat and cost effective way to get a sense of my son’s performance. I can also compare the speed against an average. My son also enjoys it because it feels like he is playing a game.

I thought it might be worthwhile to share this with other parents.
