    Hello from NYC

    Hello Bullshido members,


    Iím new to this forum and wanted to introduce myself. I call myself Izzyzx, because Izzy is my nickname and zx because they are my favor letters. My ID is Avispa which Spanish for hornet. Iíve always had a lot respect for hornets and warps. They are gentle and peaceful, but turn very violent and aggressive when agitated or threaten. I believe that would describe me.


    I was born in Bayamon PR, but I live in NYC. I attended Pratt Institute, BklynNY, and I work today as Manufacturing Process Engineer in NY.

    I have studied MA since 1969 and Iím still practicing. I currently hold a 5th degree black belt in Yamabushi Jujutsu (NYC). I have a teaching certificate in Yamabushi Kai. But I have also studied Mi Yama Ryu Jujutsu, San Yama Bushi Jujutsu, Kodokan Judo, and Aikijujutsu.


    My other pass times are. Iím a Ski Patroller at Jack Frost, PA and participate is auto racing with Northern New Jersey Region Porsche Club of America. I also coach Special Olympics Volleyball and Skiing. Iím a no BS kind of guy and I am interested in training and discussing MA. If we have some things in common or you would like to discuss the arts please reach outÖ

    Yamabushi Jujutsu is a system founded by Shihan Miguel Ibarra (maybe youíve seen his videos). The name is derivative of our foundation System/Ryu : Mi Yama Ryu -- Tremont (three mountains) School of Judo and Jujutsu -- thus the Mountain Warrior. Yamabushi is not a weapons system even though we do practice weapon (such as knife, sword, club, and gun) defenses. Itís a combat/grappling system with a mix of Aikijujutsu.
