About Conley's Keichu-Do

“Keichu is unique. Closely-related to American boxing and French Savate, Keichu mixes in a little Judo, a cup of Jiu-Jitsu, a pinch of Kung-Fu, a tablespoon of Karate and a gallon of street-wise Cajun fist-fighting.” – Soke Karl W. Marx

The Character of a GrandMaster

Keichu-Do Cajun Karate GrandMaster Eldrige Conley has dedicated his life to the principle that when it comes to achieving excellence, there is no substitute for discipline, hard work and razor-sharp focus.

"Self-Defense is not a part-time, when you have time, kind of pastime."

Soke Karl W. Marx, Sr., founder, Keichu-Do


His life demonstrates the power of his guiding principle in action, and is marked by noteworthy accomplishments as:

  • A student, of Keichu-Do, philosophy, criminal law and music
