    I just checked out Owen's place last week. I'm going again. It was jsut an open mat when I was there, but with it being the holidays I didn't think anything of it. The people there seemed legit. SO I answered my own question...

    Am I right in assuming bully refers to people who visit this site?

    Hello ironcastknight. I am in Tucson, and looking for fellow MA practitioners. So where is there good Judo in Tucson?

    I totally agree. I was kind of conflicted to leave it behind because I felt there were a lot of really good ideas and techniques behind the style. The style was good, the instructors were good, but I guess they just didn't want to get into the good stuff in order to have a more family friendly YMCA kind of environment.

    Hey man, how is Enshin going? I ended up going to a MMA gym to practice kickboxing. How have you been?

    Yeah, it felt great to get some sparring in. Since I work full-time and am currently taking classes at night, I don't have a lot of time to dedicate towards something that would be more time intensive. I bought on of those 8 class packs, so I'll stick around for those and then figure if I want to keep with it or not. It's good to know that you and the other higher belts always seem to be up for sparring since I figure that can be worked in before/after class if it isn't worked in.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I felt the striking techniques were pretty legitimate, but I we only spent a few minutes on pad work and I didn't see any sparring that day. One of the black belts (Japanese guy) told me some of them get there early on Saturdays to spar. Since you've been involved for a long time, you wouldn't happen to know of any Enshin Karate groups that get together for sparring/practice in Tucson, outside of these guys, would you?

    Hey, I saw you wrote a review for the Enshin Karate class at the YMCA. I just visited them last Saturday and am kind of conflicted about it. I decided to attend for eight classes, since I figure one class isn't really enough to get a good idea of it (my previous experience is in muay thai). Since you've practiced Enshin for quite a while, can you tell me what your overall opinion is of the style?
