My Aunt's, Shihan Jennifer Viernes, Husband's, Grand Master Allan Viernes, family ARE the founders of JUKADO, a blend of Judo, Karate, Kung-Fu, and Aikido. Their current school is in Westbrook Maine and is called The Greater Portland School of JUKADO. If you go to their website you will see the history of the school and its founder. Allan Viernes, my uncle, is the current Grand Master and his mother Grand Master Terry Suyom Mayer founded the art in 1972. Grand Master Allan Viernes is also a highly decorated veteran of the United States Army and spent his time as an Army Ranger. He is also an inducted member of The World Martial Arts Hall of Fame. In 2000 he was actually named instructor of the year by The World Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Now, some of you have mentioned Bruce Tegner and that he founded JUKADO, this is a mistake. Bruce Tegner formed a blend of Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Savate Yawara, Aikido, and Ate-Waza. What you have confused is Bruce Tegner's martial arts name, it is not JUKADO, his is JUDOKA. If some of you claim to have trained under him then you would surely know the name of his art form. The internet is full of some crazy things, all things considered it is still a great source for the truth. Do a little research and you will see for yourself the answers that you seek.
And you sir are very wrong.Bruce Tegener founded the art of Jukado in 1963 (page 23 of his book) which was originally printed in March of 1968 both events which predate the founding of what ever it is your school is teaching.Thus Bruce Tegner is the legitimate founder of Jukado as an art and as a name.

One of the first books I owned (in English) on the MA was Complete book of Jujutsu. Still own it.

I have several books that Bruce Tegner authored; Karate beginner to black belt, Aikido and Bokata, Self Defense, Stick Fighting, a nerve and pressure point book and a Kung Fu & Tai Chi book that is missing it's cover and about four or five pages. All are from the 70's and 80's.

Back in the day his concepts were 180 degrees different than the main stream but I will say his books were well written and had(have) a lot of good information in them.

A former student of mine lent me a book, that if memory serves me was along the lines of forms of different martial arts and another book on self defense for police.

One of my old instructors had a book on Judo and said it was very good.

Not sure how many arts the man studied but it must have been a lot.
