Family tree[edit]

Do you have the family tree? I saw it once, my exhusband was added at that time. Do you have the copy? Martha Valdez

We have a copy at my dojo, I can ask if there's an electronic version available or if I can scan/photograph it. Aufheben 17:38, 17 January 2007 (UTC)


A bit of a contradiction - secret art and to help the public to defend themselves against sailors?Peter Rehse 03:51, 1 December 2006 (UTC)


Is this a real name or a vandal? sounds suspicious. --Nate1481 01:03, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

It's legit. Gaylord Method is a major part of Kajukenbo. Aufheben 18:38, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, It didn't read like vandalism so thought I'd check here 1st --Nate1481 19:04, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Iam training right now kajukenbo, and iam considered third generation gaylord method it is real. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)


"Kenpo originated in the north of China, and Kempo originated in the south" Not quite true. The word kenpo/kempo is just the Japanese readind of the ideogram Quan Fa, and the two spelling are nothing but two different way to translate this reading into latin letters. Hope this helps. Peace. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:24, 11 January 2008 (UTC)


I think the neutrality tag relates to this sentence in the last paragraph. "This is in contrast to many other training methods where one is supposed to mimic techniques which many times are not practical except under very defined circumstances." - It reads kind of like a promotion for this art over all other martial arts. --FritoKAL (talk) 16:57, 29 January 2008 (UTC)


Poorly written entry. Seems more like an inside story that's edited by insiders rather than factual knowledge. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:04, 1 April 2009 (UTC)


Seeing as how "Gaylord" is not a common name anymore, and thus could easily be mistaken as vandalism, I think it would be best if a section was to be written together to state the validity of this training method. Especially since it is mentioned as one of the five recognized branches of Kajukenbo, but is the only one of those five to not have its own section later in the article. I'd write it, but I only happened upon this page by chance and know nothing of the subject matter. (talk) 00:57, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

I reverted an edit from two days ago (by an anon ISP user), removing the reference to the Gaylord Method. There was no discussion, and no consensus to do so. ldvhl (talk) 22:25, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm currently training Kajukenbo under the Emperado (or "traditional 'hard-style'") method and I can assure you that the "Gaylord" method is a very real method. My sensei has pulled out his 2004 copy of the Family Tree to show me his lineage as well as the millions of references to the Gaylord method on sites such as "Kajukenbo Cafe", etc. etc. This is not vandalism, it is a very real method named after Grand Master Gaylord himself. Interesting side note: On my Sensei's copy of the Family Tree, I found John Hackleman and Chuck Liddell in there. Yep, Kajukenbo boys, through and through.

Al Novak[edit]

Al Novak, late 80's, San Francisco Bay Area martial arts instructor, 10th degree black belt in Kajukenbo, associated with Bruce Lee[1][2] he should be included in this article and needs his own article.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 08:12, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Both of those links appear to lead to 404s, so more citation would be needed to justify his inclusion in this article. ldvhl (talk) 04:17, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Multiple issues[edit]

The article reads like it was written by the founder, or one of the schools' media departments. The entire article relies on four citations to two different sources which means that most of the content is reliant on a single source, or is unverified. There are a few external links, but generally the quality of the sources are extremely poor; most of them are primary. I've added the article to my list of "very poorly" articles and will set about in the near future. Bellerophon talk to me 09:09, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
