Reflection on the Seed
I was just five years old when I became a part of this Kajukenbo family. I remember my dad taking me to a couple schools and the only one that we connected with was Max Togisala's Kajukenbo club 1976. My father convinced me to really train seriously in 1977. Kajukenbo guys were animals and the women tough as nails. Sifu's Steve Williams, Susan Gonzales, Gene Garcia and Richard Reyes all helped GM Max teach. It was a golden era. Some of the best memories of my life are from the Kajukenbo livin’. Through the years I have met and stayed connected with a lot of great people. My place in the circle is just to continue the experience, improving the experience when necessary. I support my instructors’ wishes to continue the training and remain loyal to TOGISALA KAJUKENBO.
