    Jiu-Jitsu, BJJ, Combatives, knife/stick.

    Mostly interested in expanding knowledge of JJ, in all of its forms. Combat effectiveness is the priority in my own training, but I have a large interest in the history, theory and developement of MA.

    I feel that wrestling way back in high school gave me a feel for my body work which in turn helped strengthen my bjj and judo skills. I still think wrestling has it's advantages, whenever we have a wrestling first start at our club he owns up a few students until they armbar or choke his ass out. Wrestlers tend to leave themselves really open for that kind stuff.

    Boxing . . . great foundation and good for sending bullies packing in middle school. Boxing grew into kickboxing, which led to shootfighting. Shootfighting was a blast and really got me comfortable with being uncomfortable against an opponent (ie - a headlock isn't so scary once you spend a lot of time in a headlock or mounted, etc . . . ).

    Took up Kenpo - Tracy's - which has been good on and off depending on the school. I think I've reached the end of the line with Kenpo since my current school isn't big on sparring. In a bad situation, I just assume a boxing stance anyway, so what's the point? I will say, however, that Kenpo's dirty tricks mixed with boxing/kickboxing is IMO good for SD. There's just too many useless techniques that waste time and mean more $$$.

    I'll be making a jump to a MMA school in town shortly. They teach Muay Thai and BJJ. I'm really looking forward to some real contact, though I'm sure I'll be owned for quite a while from what I've seen over there.

    I trained Kyokushin when I was a kid, and I've always thought it was a kick ass style.

    Trained in Muay Thai in between Kung Fu. That was fun, but bag work hurts.

    I Know what you mean, I'm a boxer that just recently started in Jiu Jitsu with private lessons with a friend( actualy, I think he needed a big guy to throw around and choke and sit on and basicaly hand me my ass on a plater).
    I'm liking it, but I still like to Box.

    Boxing for a year, it was decent but I watched to many kung fu flicks and got drawn to martial arts involving kicks and flips. So I joined muay thai I found out that we don't learn flips, and the fancy kicks they do don't land in real life but still I stuck to it and fucken loved it.

    I started getting tired of limping home so I went and searched out a wing chun school (bruce lee was my inspiration for this move) It was great, they had me hooked after sifu had some students demonstrate some ultra fast sticky hands training that was badass. I started missing muay thai though and went back to it, so now I do both.

    I still limp home, but now its not just because of kicks to my legs =P
