    Visiting Brandon FL

    After roughly a year of full time school sometimes more than full time (nightschool) I finally get a vacation. I'm gonna visit my folks in the Brandon and Dade city area. I'll probably be busy running all over town. My fiancee's first time visiting Tampa so I gotta show her around. But, It'd be nice to workout at least once. Anyone here in Brandon or Dade city? (yeah right,no one w/ a computer or that fancy intranet lives in Dade city but i'll ask anyways).

    I live in the Brandon Area. It's been a few years since my last tournament, so my experience may not match up too well with current reality. The Univ. of South Florida has a great facility and I had a lot of fun with the Karate, Aikido and Judo clubs there. Go to the main gym and ask about the Martial Arts clubs. I heard the Karate club has declined a bit since Sensei McDavitt left a few years ago (he left a year after I graduated) but it should still be good for some sparring. There's also a few McDojos sprinkled along Bloomingdale Ave. that'll be glad to take your 25 bucks for an evening of training. If work wasn't kicking my ass so hard, I'd be down to hang and train some myself, but bills gotta get paid. Look around those areas and if I'm not too many years removed from the scene, those would probably be the best places to look.

    Yeah, I bet USF would be cool to check out, but it's a little out of the way for me.
    From what I remember there were several MA places in Brandon, I do remember a lot of them being mcdojos though. I'm not even necessarily bent on sparring someone.

    I'm down just to work out a little, or run or whatever. Just trying to keep up my routine. I've been so busy the passed uear I haven't been able to train nearly as much as I'd like so anything is good for me.
    I don't know if i'd go dojo hopping, I don't have the time really. I'"m better off just working out with my brother.

    You don't happen to know of any Filipino Stickfighting Guys in the area do you? I'll probably look around myself but just askin'.

    Most of the stickfighting guys in the area are a little exasperating. Many claim Jeet Kune Do, MMA and various weapons in their training. A little of this, a little of that, standard McDojo. That's my home for ya. Lots of McDojos, but there are a (very) few hardcore schools and training groups sprinkled throughout. For a short visit, you're kinda SOL, sorry. I'd say, if you just want a workout, do some drills and roll with your brother. Tampa's a mecca for pro wrestling, but the real fighting has a ways to go to catch up!

    I may check you out. I just don't know how much free time i'll have. Howard is a little out of the way. I guess i'll see what happens. Mainly I was hoping to slip out of visiting from my family's house in Brandon for an hour or two.

    Strange question, and a little off topic but, does Brandon High still have a good wrestling program? I went to high school at Bloomingdale and they were undefeated for like 20 sumthin years when I graduated.

    If you are still in the area, come train with us at the Kyokushin Karate Dojo located in the Bloomingdale Square Shopping Center. www.kyokushinkaratefl.com. Bring humility and respect, and the training is free.
