Welcome to Bullshido!


Hey, just signed up here. I'm 19, living in England. I've practised Tae Kwon Do, a little Judo few months and some Aikido (believe me that 'Aikido Sucks' video even makes me cringe).

As you're in the UK, perhaps you'd be interested in attending a throwdown in Birmingham (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=48908&page=4)? We should be having one in May (once I get off my arse and book it, presuming the room is free).

Would be a great way for you to see some other styles in action - despite the title, throwdowns really aren't that intimidating. Basically a bunch of people who know each other through this forum getting together and sparring (whatever contact level you prefer: some like to go all out, others are just looking to drill technique).


What styles would you suggest?

If you're looking to learn how to fight, then the safest bets are BJJ, muay thai, boxing, MMA and judo. SAMBO and wrestling (Greco-Roman, freestyle etc) are also respected, but not easy to find in the UK. There are good individual schools within other styles, but unfortunately they're often in the minority. The styles I mentioned aren't completely free of bullshido, but its much rarer than in something like TKD, shotokan etc (to pick some styles at random).

If you don't care about learning how to fight, then there are plenty of other options.

Me too, along with wrestling. After that dim mak post though I'm wondering if the OP is for real.

I hope it was sarcasm. Right Loco? It was sarcasm?

...The problem is finding a decent dojo or club where it isn't watered down...

How could that be? Everyone here who does Wing Chun says they have t3h r34l Wing Chun, so it must be pretty common.
