View Full Version : My year, so far...

At the beginning of the year I started with Kung Fu - more specifically "wing chun". I know, I know.
Being the smart guy that I am, I started to smell some B.S. 4 months into my training.

So, I did some research and the internetz taught me about sticky hands and wooden dummy. But, browsing porn aside, I also found out that what I was doing was definitely not teh real _ing _un.

I was confused and angry. And I had mixed emotions. And then I found Bullshido

I managed to get a lot of good advice from the forum members, got sworn at, and read a lot of dick jokes. After going and observing and/or trying out a few different styles in my general area, I settled on traditional JuJitsu and Sanshou, training JJ on Mon and Wed and Sanshou on Tues and Thurs. All the running and fitness and no (light) sparring or anything really useful or effective from the Kung Fu training at least paid off with general stamina and fitness.

6 months later I've managed to become a full yellow belt (the adults don't do yellow, one stripe, two stripe) in JJ and I have a blue shirt (first grading) in Sanshou.

I feel great, more confident and more focussed in all areas of my life. No more road rage or getting pissed off over stupid ****.

And I just wanted to thank all of you belligerent assholes who contributed to this massive change in my life.

Ok, this post is going gay; I'm off to do some push ups.

Being gay is ghey. You should do hetero guys instead.

"Browsing porn aside"- good set up leading to this line.

Wing Chun indirectly causes someone to discover t3h r341 d3ad1y.

Wing Chun wins again.

To OP: Just out of curiosity and for comparison with my situation, how live is your Trad JJ training?

I'd say it's decent.

We've had a couple of light sparring sessions, mixing in striking with throws and groundwork. The higher belts go a bit heavier and sometimes do full contact.

And whenever we learn something new, the partner provides proper resistance. I've had some of the most bad-ass workouts of my life, during groundwork with a partner who doesn't want to be submitted.

Learning that teh Chun is useless (almost. It is great for lulz!!) is the first step to being a martial artist. What style of trad JJ do you do?

What I was being taught wasn't even traditional WC, but it was referred to as that. If I think back about what I was being taught, I facepalm myself so hard that I do a backflip.

The JJ is Kawaishi.
