    !This would be a more challenging game in a Choi Kwang do setting with their 18 belts!

    Leave it to the Irish to link drinking games to martial arts.
    Is there anything you don't associate with drinking?
    Goddamn..

    The 'Jitsu' club at my university were shocking they did this drill where someone would stand in the middle of a circle and then people would attack them with the slowest most telegraphed attacks you've ever seen. These would be countered by slow and sloppy standing ude garamis and silly wirstlocks.

    We used to invite them to an open randori along with the Aikido people and another Jiu jitsu (sic) club they just didn't respond to our emails so when we asked them in person by showing up at the end of their sessions they gave us some vague half committments and then never showed up.

    Yes this is a "circle".

    Sadly this sounds like something they'd do. Did the aikido people and the other Jiujutsu club show up? Please tell me they did.

    I may be Irish, but the club wasn't in Ireland.

    This is YMAS, from what I know about TJF they like to take the piss out of themselves while they are at it.

    Hi Guys thanks for posting this. I was planning to check out 3 TJF clubs in London - one at City London university, one at King's college, and another at http://www.faogb.co.uk/

    But from these forums it seems Judo is the way to go.

    Aikido club claimed they weren't allowed to spar, which I can believe, and that their club would be kicked out of their association if they did, which I thought was funny.

    The other jiu-jitsu club didn't respond via email and gave us the same vague non commital response in person.

    What? Aikido people are weird. I did one aikido lesson after leaving TJF and it was taught by some guy who looked like Michael Winner and I learnt things such as being stabbed by a knife kills you and hitting someone over the head with a wooden sword is painful for them.

    To spite them I didn't pay for the lesson afterward because they'd wasted two hours of my valuable goddamn time. :5slick:
