JUKENSA KAJUKENBO LESSONS
There is no magic pill to prepare you to be a good street fighter. Preparation and perspiration, although at times boring, are the ways for you to become a dominator in fights. Never be satisfied with your level of skill. The better you get the more you should drive for perfection and condition--if you would like to be a dominator of fights or tournaments.
"It is not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game", some say---NOT SO in a street fight. An accomplished fighter will never settle for anything less than winning. To him, not winning is unimaginable.
EXAMPLE NO. 5 :
In this technique, Sifu Vallejo deflects a downward strike, club or knife attack; maintaining control over the attacking arm, as he grabs the attacker's hair or strikes the attacker's face to off-balance him. Then, releasing his control of the attacker's arm, he arm-strikes the attacker's face, taking him to the ground.
EXAMPLE NO. 6:
In this technique, the attacker's downward strike (as with a bottle or club) is blocked. At the same time, Sifu Vallejo strikes his attacker's solar plexes with a punch, then an upward elbow strike to the face or chin. Finally he wraps his arm around the attacker's neck for a choke. The choke, demonstrated separately here, must be practiced very slowly and carefully ...remind your partner to pat on himself or you when the choke begins to work, since he probably won't be able to tell you verbally.
NOTE: In the street, each strike of a Kajukenbo blackbelt should move directly to the next strike, when possible, without first withdrawing your attacking limb from its earlier strike.
EXAMPLES NO. 7-9:
(Demonstrations by Beginning Students)
First, Josué (left photo) shows an easy and effective escape from a choke. First he must tighten his neck, then grasp his attacker's left wrist firmly with his own left hand. With this grasp, Josué can maintain control over his attacker. Then, he reaches straight up with the right arm and immediately thrusts it across above his attacker's arms while maintaining control of his opponent with his left hand. Finally he brings his elbow back into the choker's face, retracts it ahd hits the face another time, followed by a kick.
Next, Marcos (right photo) demonstrates a series of moves against an attacker reaching for him.
Finally, Josué and Marcos demonstrate a form (kata) that they are learning. Forms are not emphasized in Jukensa Kajukenbo.
