Mr. Jake McCalmon is now a 5th degree instructor in the Park Method of Kenpo-Jujutsu and the Tennessee director for the Kajukenbo Self-Defense Institute (KSDI). Jake began his martial arts training in 2005 in the Ramos method of Kajukenbo Kenpo, under Sigung Andres Marquez III (in the lineage of Ahgung Tony Ramos via Grand Master Calvin Shin), in Fairfield, CA. Before being able to reach his first Dan, Jake left to finish school, moved and married. Jake returned
to his martial arts study in 2009 under Al Tracy's style of Kenpo, however in 2011, Jake relocated to Texas when his company moved out of California. Jake took up the study of American Freestyle Karate, where he earned his first degree black belt, and also studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He discovered
Kenpo-Karate of Plano in 2014 and was immediately intrigued with the opportunity to return to his roots in Kajukembo Kenpo and to train under Grand Master Park's tutelage. Jake has some experience in Escrima, Judo, and the Japanese sword. Jake is an avid student of the martial arts, and is honored
to be part of the Park System and Kajukenpo Kenpo-Jujutsu Association.
