Not a lot of people know that Kajukenbo exists because very few people train in it. Yes, I do believe that it is lethal and effective, but there is a cost, very dangerous training methods that produce a lot of injuries. Only the most dedicated student comes back to train week after week, year after year. Yes, Kajukenbo people competed in competitons, they follow the rules of whatever competitons they are competiting in. The two most famous competitors from Kajukenbo are Benny Urquidez and Chuck Lidell.
Yes, there are Kajukenbo tournaments, but they are sort of friendly competitions when the different Kajukenbo schools get together.
As for the marketing, no Kajukenbo cannot be marketed. How can one market a martial art when the student may quit after the first class, or after a week or two weeks. Yes, there are hardcore, extremely hardcore and not very hardcore schools. Sure, the not very hardcore schools can attract a lot of students, but the training will not be the same. In a hardcore school, the beginning student goes through a most horrible workout. In fact, it is a horrible experience. How can I be recommending that?
Lots of people on Yahoo Answers ask for what is a brutal effective street fighting art. I never recommend Kajukenbo. How can I send someone to a horrible painful violent experience? If you really want Kajukenbo, you will find it. Even if you have to relocate to another geographical location.
