Kempo Jiu Jitsu

The first program offered is called Kempo Jiu Jitsu.  The origin of this adult martial arts program comes from Kajukenbo. This is an American hybrid martial art. The name Kajukenbo comes from the original arts of which it was composed: KA for Karate, JU for Judo and Jujutsu, KEN for Kenpo and BO for Boxing. It was developed in the late 1940s and founded in 1947 in the Palama Settlement of Oahu, Hawaii.

Kajukenbo training incorporates a blend of striking, kicking, throwing, take downs, joint locks and weapon disarmament. A driving principle behind Kajukenbo is transitioning smoothly from one specialty into the next to create an optimal response to any situation. This radical approach to training led to Kajukenbo being known as, “The First American Mixed Martial Art”.

Over the years a Black Belt under of Kajukenbo by the name of Grandmaster Victor “Sonny” Gascon (AKA Uncle Sonny) Branched off and moved to California. At this time “Uncle Sonny” Gascon created Karazenpo Goshinjitsu. Kara for Karate, Zen for Mind Arts, Po for Kempo and Goshinjitsu meaning the school of self defense.

This newly formulated system took the mixed martial arts approach of Kajukenbo and further expanded the techniques, principles and concepts allowing the student to continue to grow and find what works best for them. Combination fighting techniques, grab arts, gun, club, knife and kata’s were then created by Grandmaster “Uncle Sonny” Gascon. Filipino Escrima was also a part of Karazenpo goshinjitsu since Uncle Sonny learned Escrima from his family who moved from the Philippines to mainland Hawaii. You can be certain that learning the Kempo Jiu Jitsu system at United Studios PMA will guide you in becoming a well rounded martial artist.

TESTIMONIALS

I have been an educator in one form or another for almost quarter of a century, and involved with martial arts on several different levels since I was a teenager. Never have I experienced a higher level of professionalism, motivation, thoroughness, and quality of experience as I have throughout our 6 year relationship with USPMA. Their teaching methodology, energy, preparedness and the overall positive environment which they create day to day is unrivaled in my experience and we could not ask for anything more! Thank you USPMA for increasing the quality of our physical, mental and emotional lives! We are grateful!

I cannot say enough about United Studios. My young son started training here 4 years ago and my husband and I joined in January 2011 when we saw how awesome all of the instructors were. My whole family has learned so much here — not only about defending ourselves, but also about character, morals, etc. This is a great place where everyone is made to feel like they can do anything they set their minds to and the instructors are fully vested in getting you to the highest level you can personally achieve. I highly recommend it to anyone. Denise Robinson

There are a lot of martial arts schools to choose from on Long Island, many of them in fact excellent. What sets United Studios apart however is the undeniable quality of its instructors. The instructors are all professionals who have dedicated their life to their craft and continue to be active in refining their art. They pass this experience to their students making for a diverse and practical education. What has always impressed me at this school is how well the instructors know their individual students abilities, talents, progress and limitations. Despite being in a group setting, they are able to incorporate their knowledge of you into your workout ensuring that you are challenged, motivated, and have a sense of progress and accomplishment. There may be 20 people in class, but you will feel like you are working with a personal trainer who knows how you learn best. The instructors here make a deep personal investment in your growth and progress and have a sense of personal and professional pride in your accomplishments. It is a rare thing these days and it only comes from having a staff of competent professionals who legitimately love what they are doing. Edward W.

FAQS

How has the United Studios PMA Adult Martial Arts program designed and created?

Having our roots in Kajukenbo has made it very easy to improve our training methods. The Kajukenbo system is much different than others systems because we do not ask students to mimic the instructor but rather find what works best for themselves. Kajukenbo was a style created in 1947 by five martial arts master who came together on the island of Hawaii.

One would think that this new form would now become the most effective martial arts system in the world. On some level it has proved to be just that. Especially when you look at the former UFC champion and hall of fame member Chuck Lidell. His martial arts roots came from the same Kempo system in which we teach. Kyoshi Rich later his top student Renshi Enzo Aliotta to seek out training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mauy Thai in order to compliment the system we teach. With much luck our traditional system has been enhanced with movements and principles that can make the most sense.

In addition to the many different arts mentioned, Enzo also holds a 5th degree black belt in Kajukenbo-Kempo Jiu Jitsu, a full instructor in Shaolin Kung fu under Sifu Tak Wah Eng of NYC’s China town. He has been  trained in the use 18 different martial arts weapons. He is a brown belt in the art of Judo under Professor Gary Rasanen an active Purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a Coach in {CSW} Combat Submission Wrestling. Enzo still actively teaches classes at United Studios Progressive Martial Arts of Port Jefferson Station.
