    Wow, that surprises me. Goju Ryu is a really good type of karate. Not my primary kind, but I have respect for it. If you say "off shoot" that could be the problem, your instructor might just have sucked. If you are doing Judo though, then I won't try to convince you to go back to karate.

    Are you the guy I spoke to about worcestor judo club, Jule and Delgarbino on the facebook bushido club?

    Yup, that's me. And I am doing Judo when I'm in Worcester for school and on vacations, when it's too far to drive I am thinking of doing an SBGi gym near me in afternoons and Kyokushin at night (work permitting of course) , but yeah it's not just my school but it's a lot of Meibukan: Very VERY kata oriented and kihon crazy with no contact sparring.

    Yah, doing only kata sucks balls. My Goju Ryu Teacher was Chad Merriman, his father chuck is the only official 9th dan in america under the Jundokan, the main Goju Ryu organization in the world. Chad was a freeking vicious sparrer. He once freeked out all the parents in the dojo. We were sparring, he punched me in the head. I went falling backwards, and he managed to hit me like four more times before I hit the gound. I was freeking shocked.

    you do know that Kyokushin is just a mixture of shotokan and goju ryu, just with more body conditioning and sparring. Its inventor Oyama was a student of Funikoshi, the inventor of Shotokan. I want to get into kyokushin, but there is no dojo near me.

    Villari.....

    There were a couple of Villari dojos in the area where I grew up. I went for a free lesson when I was about 16. Well, I showed up to check it out and they offered me a free lesson so i took them up on it. Everyone was really nice and all.....but looking back I see that it was probably what could be called a "McDojo." They told me that I would be a black belt in two years, three maximum. I thought that was great at the time, and I got really excited. I went home and my parents refused to pay for it, so I didn't go back. Later I spoke with a couple of older guys I knew who were serious MAs. When I mentioned Villaris, invariably they all groaned and told me that two year black belts always end up overconfident and ultimately beaten up.

    Not passing judgement, just passing along my memories......for whatever they are worth.

    Nice to know they solved BJJ/UFC/MMA. Insecurity anyone?

    It would be funny to produce a video on how MMA has solved some TMA. Step by step instructional on how to, I would lol.

    Okay, here we go...

    He is ugly, eccentric, dresses funny, makes a lot of money (yes, mostly from providing day care) and is a fool.

    What about his fighting technique?
