ah come on guys, be nice.

i don't think any one will care much, but last week i trained at the Kalakaua Rec center with Universal Kempo Karate Schools, in Kalihi, Honolulu (where was KFss? I invited you!) and loved it. I'll have to start a thread and plug this school-so much fun and good happy friendly type competent locals, throwing and punching and choking and so forth.

Last nite i hit bag and did kata and lifted at the Logan Ut rec center by myself and monday will be at Sports Academy tumbling room doing it some more and I hope instructor has split the little kids off, I don't mind helping out instructing, but I need a workout.

I'm going to be taking a break from BJJ for a while BUT I give a HUGE shout to Master Mansur and everyone at Kioto BJJ(Krauss, Kenny, Big Mike, Anthony, Marcelo, Luis, Little Kevin, John, Big Daddy, Jeff, Bull, and everyone else that makes Kioto such a great place to train BJJ).

My schedule is making it very hard to train or teach so I'm going to be going solo for a while and bag training.

I workout at Powerhouse in Ronkonkoma too.

Also a shout to TSK Islandia, Leonelli, Lattman, Randy "Slam" Campos, the Cully's, and everyone else who trains hard.

Thumbs up to Extreme Muay Thai in Valley Stream.

1. I train at US JUDO TRAINING CENTER (in washington state)


I've never met anyone who trained there before. Isn't he the guy who doesn't like bowing 'cause his wife's freaked out by Shintoism?

Anyhow, I've heard his children (1 boy and 1 girl, IIRC) are pretty good.



2 I also Train in Tap-out wrestling.


Where are these guys? Somewhere near Renton? Or are they the new guys in Kent?



My Judo school teachs A very Modern day version of Judo called Jacket Wrestling.


I've not sure what this means. Isn't all judo (for that matter, all sambo as well) jacket wrestling?

Anyhow, I train at a small gym further north on Rainier. Pretty much a 50/50 mix of standup and ground grappling, but, unlike the Seattle Budokan or the Seattle Dojo, we've no focus on competition.

If you're interested in stopping by, send me a PM.

I train at One Dragon Martial Arts, its the Straight Blast Gym representative for the East Coast of the USA. Good training, friendly folks, nice place. Here's the website if you want to see
www.onedragon.com

Hey Kieth at Takada Dojo, how often are guys like Matsui, Sakuraba, and Takada there? Is is an open environment? Can you describe the training? Do guys from other schools like Grabaka, or KZ factory come in a train too? Thanks.

I see Matsui and Sakuraba almost every day, Takada once in a while. Guys from other places train there sometimes, mostly other PRIDE fighters. Here's a description of the place from another forum...

"Well, in a lot of ways it's just a typical MMA gym. There are pro-fighters who teach the grappling and striking classes. The real appeal of the place is that some instructors are part of Takada's team, guys you always see in Pride. For instance, Sakuraba teaches a submission wrestling class, Yamamoto teaches vale-tudo, Imamura is a free-style and greco-roman coach, and Matsui is in charge of pain. He does the "strength" classes...which means follwing his lead in doing squats, push-ups, sit-ups, etc.
These guys only teach once or twice a week. The rest of the classes are covered by other guys. Minoru Toyonaga, who is easily the best submission coach there, teaches a lot. He's a retired fighter (because of some neurological problem) and currently a Pride referee. Plus they have some champion kickboxers and boxers teaching the stand-up classes.
As for the students, a lot of them do submission wrestling tournaments. A few, like me, do amateur Pride style fights, with varying success. Last year, I did an 8-man amateur Pride tournament "Pre-Pride 3". Won the first 2 fights, lost in the final match by judge's decision.
That's kind of Takada Dojo in a nutshell."

I know it's redundant. But I felt I had to write something instead of just posting the website...and "Eat your hearts out!" or "Read and feel envy!" didn't seem too nice.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I train Wing Chun privately. No fees, one-on-one instruction. It's great.

I've also recently started training here (http://www.thaiboxing-ca.com/), and I absolutely *love* it. A tad expensive, but unlimited training for your buck. The location's great, too. First time I've trained at a place with a regulation boxing ring, sweet!

First, I'm gonna hit ya...then you're gonna fall
