Another Jukensa Kajukenbo Technique

Copyright © 2002 Sam Allred


A concept of Jukensa Kajukenbo, as with all Kajukenbo, is to develop sequences of strikes until they become reflexive by the time a Kajukenboist reaches the rank of Brown Belt.

Each strike of the high-ranking Kajukenboist should, if wished by the Kajukenboist, automatically open up his opponent to other combinations of powerful and rapid strikes.

Like a musician who can "ad lib" and can play exactly the correct notes in just the correct place at just the correct time, the well-trained Kajukenboist can place just the correct strikes at just at just the correct place at the correct time.


In this technique, Sifu Vallejo blocks the punch, attacks his opponent’s groin, wraps his arm around his opponents neck so as to pull him into knee strike.

First this evasion/block is shown. The technique is then demonstrated normal speed, followed by a slow demonstration. In the fast version, as in a street fight, Sifu Vallejo continues until he is certain that the opponent will not get to his feet and again attack. Finally the groin attack is demonstrated.

As always, speed is essential, as are accuracy and power..

  • Against a Punch--An Example of BLOCKING
  • The Technique Slow
  • The Technique Full Speed
  • Ridgehand Strike to Groin

  • EXAMPLE NO. 3:

    As with all kicking techniques, your own balance is very important. Note how Sifu Vallejo first raises his knee. Contact with the opponent in this case should be mostly with the heel.

  • Rear Thurst Kick
  • Rear Thrust Kick--SLOW

  • EXAMPLE NO. 4:

    This is an example of a Kajukenbo multiple attack against a grab. It is designed to help make it natural for the Jukensa Kajukenbo practicioner to note his attacker's open vulnerable areas and to follow-up each of his movements with another movement... reflexively.

    First the opponent's elbows are broken down...leaving the fists in place to attack the opponent's face, which is also drawn into the fists by the movement. This move not only attacks his face, but also leaves the Kajukenboist's own arms in place to permit him to release the grab (next movement) with a strong movement of his own arms. That movement also leaves his arms in place to attack the opponent's solar plexus with his right backfist, followed by a similar attack with your left ridgehand.

    Those attacks are to be made very rapidly but with much force, leaving the attacker open for a knee to his torso. Other attacks follow until the agressor is no longer interested in fighting.

    While it is realized that the anticipated reactions of the attacker may not occur exactly as hoped, this kind of training will eventually cause the Kajukenboist not only automatically react to every opening in his attacker's posture, but also to create openings.

  • Sequence Defense Against a Grab
  • Sequence Defense Against a Grab--SLOW
