WWCheese: Starting weight: 290 lbs (6'0 tall). I'm down to 280 after a month at the gym and a week of Karate. As for diet, I have no specific diet; I'm just watching my sugar intake. I've never met a Pizza i didn't like, though!

Would you mind describing the training you've done and seen in the dojo thusforth? I'm rather curious to see how it stacks up with the Shorin-Ryu Shidokan that I started martial arts with.
Good choice on the wife, by the way. I lived on Guam for five years, and after some of the Filipinas I met there I'd gladly take a chubby one of those over a pair of hot white twins.

So far it's been 1/3 stretching & Calisthenics, 1/3 stances, kicks and punching and 1/3 joint-locks or is it called Jiujitsu?

Always wanted to know what Shorin Ryu was like, as that was one of the styles of karate Gichin Funakoshi studied before creating Shotokan.
BTW, welcome to Bullshido :)

Shorin ryu is a soft block, hard counter style. Its heavy on footwork, creating angles, incorporates alive training in sparring where your allowed to kick to the head and groin. We dont do point sparring and prefer to throw combinations. It also has bag and pad work. (atleast in my dojo) Heres a typical class...
The gentleman running the class is my O'sensei Tadashi Yamashita.

Congrats. At our age (46) it is imperitive that you really listen to your body and give it time to recuperate after a session. A lot of people start hard, get results, go harder then quit. My training goals are to get to class, stay uninjured. Everything else is a bonus. Enjoy your training.

What form of Shorin Ryu if you know is it , Kobayashi ,Matsubayashi or one of the others , Do you know the lineage ?
Im somewhat familiar with Kobayashi and Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu as Ive guest trained in both dojos , Of the the little I know I tend to like Kobayashi a bit better only because its very similiar in ways to my main style of Shotokan except the stances in Shorin Ryu are higher and albeit more practical IMHO .
Either way I think Shorin Ryu is a good system , Enjoy your training !!!!
Move along citizen ,nothing to see here !!!!!
