We practice Kajukenbo at Seven Star. Kajukenbo is an eclectic martial art from Hawaii that combines techniques from Tang Soo Do (Korean karate), Kodokan judo, jujitsu, Kosho Ryu kenpo, and Shaolin kung fu into a style that is effective in real-life situations. Kajukenbo does not rely solely on size or strength, making it well-suited for women. Seven Star’s style is also influenced by aikido, wun hop kuen do, and the unique experiences of our instructors. We include self-defense training throughout our curriculum.
Seven Star empowers individuals to train by offering sliding scale dues based on income, scholarships, ASL interpreting, work study, and free on-site childcare for moms while they train. There are no contracts, annual fees, or expensive uniforms.
