What is KTFO?
It is an acronym for Kajukenbo Tactical Force Options.
The skill sets used in KTFO are pulled from Western Boxing, Filipino Martial Arts, and Ground Fighting. Both empty hand and weapon techniques are considered.
The focus of the class is situational self defense. Students 13 years and up, of any skill level are welcome, and can expect to deepen their understanding of self protection, use of force ladders, and defensive tactics with every class.
What is the Kajukenbo part of KTFO?
Kajukenbo is a hybrid martial art from Hawaii. The name Kajukenbo is a portmanteau of the various arts from which the style is derived: KA for Karate, JU for Judo and Jujutsu, KEN for Kenpo and BO for Boxing (Kajukenbo).
Kajukenbo training incorporates a blend of striking, kicking, throwing, takedowns, joint locks and weapon disarmament.
