Hi, ive been lurking in these forums for a while now and I decided to make an account. Im 18 and have been training for about 10 years in the martial arts.

The art I have the most experience with is limalama(1st degree black belt from grandmaster Tino), I understand that that not alot of people know much about limalama...and sadly, there are alot of people out there with rank that they do not deserve,(meaning when you type limalama into youtube, unless you get lucky, your going to see alot of things that are either flashy xma or just straight up kung fu. I would be happy to answer any questions about this art.

I also have rank (2nd degree black belt) in Chunk kuk do, I have less info on this, but still would be willing to answer any questions.

I have also trained in mma akido and toshido, and I just enrolled in a judo class at my college.

Welcome to the forum. Can you post any videos of what you consider good limalama videos? Or perhaps of your place training or demonstrating?

Welcome to Bullshido.

I don't know much about limalama, and would be curious to hear more about it. I second the motion for vids of what you would consider "good" limalama.

Second... I want to clarify a couple of items, because I'm confused.
Is it "Chun Kuk Do"? The art taught by Chuck Norris, or something different. I got no google return for "Chunk kuk do." Along those lines, is it "toshido" or Toshindo -- the Stephen Hayes art? I get some returns for a "toshido" so I'm not sure what you're referring to.

What kind of MMA training did you do? And how are you liking Judo?

Thanks, and again, welcome!

YouTube - Limalama Practice in Texas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeWzVYEJkOI) has a pretty good clip from a while back, not the most amazing, but a pretty good view of limalama basics. I would rate this pretty good as far youtube vids go.

YouTube - rudy tuolisega.WMV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUlDWOSeMZ0&feature=related) I really like this one. I would rate this is great as far as youtube vids go.

YouTube - Tecnicas Numeradas - Lima Lama (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-hhbgqL038) I would rate this pretty bad, their balance is off, their stances are bad, and the realism is at a white belt level.
..but it still at least looks mildy like limalama so ill give it a meh rating as far as youtube videos go.

YouTube - Lima Lama Forms at Tournaments (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaaMwPjxgls)
YouTube - lima lama (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgWWf7ufVWE&feature=related)
I would rate these as good for xma...but bad for limalama.

Just my opinion tho.

Id love to answer specific questions about any of the videos if I am able to.

-Styygens-

Chun kuk do is chuck norrises style. I have actually performed infront of him....and just my opinion from hearing him talk at the closing banquets in our world chamionships...he has taken one too many kicks to the head. The reason you may not have gotten much info is that the federation chun kuk do is under is the United Fighting Arts Federation (ufaf for short)
http://www.ufaf.org/

As for toshido....i was really little when I took it so I really don't know all that much about it, I believe it came from shotokan, but honestly...your probably better off asking someone else.

I Trained under rocky long for mma, we did a mix of american kickboxing and mui thai (sp) for striking and bjj for ground work.

I like judo so far, everyone seems nice and its a good workout, but its too early to tell much more about it as of yet.
