Kajukenbo - Tum Pai 

Tum Pai by Sijo Emperado, the first phase of development involved the incorporation of southern styles of kung fu and tai chi. GM Al Dela Cruz and GM Al Dacascos helped with this development by converting the first two Pinan’s to forms more resembling Chinese forms. Although they kept the same foot movements, the hard linear hand movements were replaced by softer hand movements. And many of the hard style horse stances were replaced with very low deep cat stances, resembling those of the southern Chinese sil-lum systems.
