    I used to train under Sensei Falcon. Glad to hear he is still around. Does he have a website, i'm just curious.

    And sorry, I don't know of any Enshin places in NYC. There are quite a few Kyokushin dojos around if you are looking to train knockdown karate.

    There's not a listing for Queens in the USA School directory:
    http://www.enshin.com/index.php?opti...=usa&Itemid=52

    It might be worth calling the nearest schools to get information, though. I'm sure that if Enshin is being taught in Queens that the nearest schools listed will know who is teaching and where.

    Thanks a lot guys you all really are the best!!! As for man Sensei Falcon I don't think he has a website but does have a Facebook and I have him as a friend of you want add me or look him up on Facebook. I was thinking since there's no enshin arround what about Oyama since its still full contact and also has some grabs and throws?? I know there's a world oyama karate dOjo in manhattan.

    american combat jujitsu

    Hey what up guys I'm making a nother post on this forum I'm pretty new to it as well. I was looking for an enshin school in nyc but i wasn't successful. I tried kyokushin for a while but didn't like it for the fact that they don't grab or hit to the face so i decided to expand my horizon I was looking for an american combat jujitsu school but i can't find it anywhere only dvd's on line. I looked at samba but i think the submission techniques just take too much time to execute. I like enshin for the fact that its straight up hardcore fighting but since i can't find a dojo then what ever so is there an american jujitsu dojo in the nyc area??

    Stick to one thread and post in the correct area. Neither of your threads have anything to do with MMA. Since they are both asking for a school they have been merged and the title has been changed.

    The underlined bit tells me that you are looking for a quick fix. Do you understand that learning something that is difficult takes time?

    Why do you want to learn martial arts? Why do you just want "hardcore fighting"? Why do you think that SAMBO isn't hardcore fighting (I'm assuming you mean SAMBO, the Russian martial art, not Samba, the Latin dance)?

    Seriously, what are your goals in martial arts?

    Thank you for pointing this out to me I will be careful on where I post next time. However with regards to my "quick fix" I believe martial arts have been watered down into commercial arts. Martial arts was invented during and for times of war to maim and kill your opponents and I feel it is hard to find a martial art at least open to the public that does so you might disagree and I might be wrong.

    You are correct, the martial arts in general have been watered down. It was out of necessity, but it has happened.

    You are sort of correct here too. I had to water mine down a few years back; it was difficult to find training partners with the body count and all. Seriously, what are you expecting from martial arts training? You have to be realistic; alive training with a resistant opponent is the only way to practice.

    If you want th3 d34dly stuff, you might try Ninjutsu or Wing Chun.

    I do not believe Martial arts, in general, have been watered down into "commercial arts."
