“Yes, it means KEEP GOING, and is used as encouragement when someone falters or fails at something”.

Sounds like the perfect word to define this year’s Hawai’i Warrior football team.

The first thing they teach you at Kamehameha School is that it is not Kam School. Kam is Chinese. It may be cumbersome to say all the syllables but it is Kamehameha School. Imua.
