Style: Using bag as aggro outlet
I am planning to train in "Escape Fast" self defence using my hands head and teeth as weapons.
UFC is only good if it's a ONE style fighter vs another ONE style fighter (and that includes hybrid styles like TaiAikiJutsu)
UFC needs more obscure martial artists (Glimmen, "Testas" Arte'Dell'Bracciare) fighting in it. More traditional African and European styles.

What am I?:
I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.
I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

Speaking of Kyokushin, what aside from the fact that it's heavily sparring-based separates it from other styles of karate? I've looked at a few books (not the best idea, I know), and it just looks like generic "hard" karate to me.
Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:
1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!
2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.
3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

Style: Kyokushinkai / Kajukenbo
i'm a Kyokushin bb and have also spent years in other styles-Kyokushin is just more intense. As Sihon Lowe's yellow pages ad used to say in Honolulu, "No contracts, just hard workouts."
After about two hours of hard sweaty workout, THEN they do pushups and situps. I remember doing handstands while someone held my feet and doing pushups. I remember watching the sweat on the dogi (karate clothes) of the bb in front of me in the front line (i was green at the time) during warm ups gradually soak with sweat, starting with the neck and armpits, until the ENTIRE uniform was wet. Pay off was things like in Kajukenbo class, first time,it was only my area of the floor was sprinkled with sweat 10 minutes into the workout because i had been taught to go as hard as you can (kata without power is dance) and no one else there had had that experience.
Peedee-what style of karate are you a bb in?
Do you use it or practice it still?
Oh, Kajukenbo teaches every kind and way of doing kicks, thrust, whip, mule, snap, chambered, unchambered, they actally broke down things like front snap to roundhouse combo (nidan mwashigeri)in steps with hip movement and leg movement explained in detail.
