Lucaylucay Kali


Ted Lucaylucay was born in the Hawaiian Islands and experimented with various martial arts styles. After moving to Los Angeles he became one of the early "backyard" students of Richard Bustillo and Dan Inosanto. He eventually became the first student to graduate from the Inosanto Academy in both JKD and Kali.

After Leaving the Inosanto Academy in 1975, he started his own organization Temujin Lucaylucay Kali/JKD. He continued to grow and "absorb what was useful" refining his skills and tutoring thousands of students along the way.

Ted Lucaylucay passed away March 30, 1996.

Lucaylucay Kali Logo

Notice the layout of the Lucaylucay Kali logo. Lucaylucay reflected his philosophy that JKD (Jeet Kune Do) is, in reality, just a concept. His logo reflects this by prominently showing the Lucaylucay Kali logo large and in the foregound and the JKD logo set off towards the back and smaller. This shows that JKD is a concept that has influenced and expanded his personal version of Lucaylucay Kali.
