Combining karate, judo, jujitsu, kenpo, kung fu, eskrima and boxing, Kajukenbo incorporates and uses myriad of techniques to form a unique hybrid style of martial arts. Kajukenbo is intense, using hard, fast strikes to vital parts of the body, take-downs, and a range of joint and limb destruction methods. Groundwork is also a key part of the art, usually as follow-up to take downs.
Emphasizing weapons, fighting with blades, hardened-sticks and improvised weapons, Eskrima is a deadly, combat proven, type of Filipino martial arts. Even though training begins with weapons, empty-hand methods are also core parts of the art as the weapon is basically an extension of the body.
