Style: Kyokushinkai / Kajukenbo
I was reading Te No Kage!'s thread in Combat Sports and it dawned on me that I have more respect for him knowing that he competes. So I'm starting this to list those Bullshidokas who put it on the line, on the mats or in the ring (or even in between the tape lines on the gym floor). I'm including every type of competition, though I know there is a difference between me doing kata and point sparring and Asia doing BJJ. I also would include people who have done tourneys and such in the past, like Ronin69 in Kyokushin, not just who is currently competing.
So off the top of my head I can list these members who I believe have competed n various levels. Please add what you can.
Te No Kage!
J-Lau (whata guy!)
KhorneliusPraxx (one comp counts!)
And there's a lot of people here like stoogejitsu and HAPKO3 that I THINK compete, but I can't remember... So don't get mad if you aren't listed, this is just an attempt to put it together.

You can add Driscoll and JBliss (MMA) and myself (sub grappling) to the list.

I compete in BJJ. Next tournament is on the 29th of May.
I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

I wouldn't call my NHB fight much of a competition, but I did get to see exactly how much work I needed courtesy of a healthy beatdown.

I actually had my first competition earlier yesterday (in-school, nothing major). Incidently, my first injury during competition as well; I planted my leg a little weirdly on a low kick, and ate a return shot along the knee before recovering. Ah, pain, how I remember thee. Unable to continue probably because of a tear, we'll see which soon. Up until that point, things were going pretty well. :llorar:
