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 women to train by offering sliding scale dues based on income, scholarships, ASL interpreting, and free on-site childcare for moms while they train. There are no contracts, annual fees, or expensive uniforms.
