Just wondering what everyone wants to accomplish in martial arts short term and long term.

I have really come down in my aspirations, right now my main goals are:

- Become injury free
- Remain injury free
- train at least 6 months with out an injury

Currently, I have but one goal in all my training. Get Shodan in judo. Everything I do in bjj, judo, exercise, or anything else martial arts related is for that goal. After that goal, I will probably switch to either, fight amateur mma or get purple belt in bjj.

Be decent enough that no one who isn't just being a jerk will say "Wow I thought you'd be better than that..."

To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

Kidding aside, I'll start with the three items initialized mentioned by Soju (with a minor caveat in yellow):

- Become injury free
- Remain injury free
- train at least 6 months with out a major injury.

I say that because I'm already screwy at some joints, so some debilitating **** is going to happen.

My main goals for the next 12-18 months are the following (my right wrist is almost functional now):

1. Go back to BJJ ASAP and train consistently in gi and no-gi and get a blue belt (cross fingers).
2. Compete at NAGA and other local events in SoFla (maybe Neko can help me train for some local Judo events).
3. Train in MMA, kickboxing or boxing (depending on what's available at my school).
4. Make time to do powerlifting at least once a week (this is non-negotiable :icon_spid ).
5. Fight in MMA before the end of 2008.
6. Stay over 160lbs, at the least not drop below 155lbs.

That's my baseline, oh so help me ${DEITY}

ps... there is a Sanda, a Hung Gar and an Atemi-Ryu JJ schools nearby, which I'd like to visit, but that's conditional to me having time to pursue my goals (meaning, it'll be bloody unlikely.)

My original goals were get BJJ blue, compete and do amateur MMA but all I want now is to not to cry from pain every time I sneeze.

Just training properly for a consistant period of time would be a nice change.

Damnit, i came here to post this!

Anyway.
1. Bulk up, and stay in shape. I'm a twig right now
2. Get a yellow belt in TKD, then consider whether or not to continue
3. Start a grappling MA sometime in the next year. (BJJ?)
4. Have fun.
5. compete in a amateur boxing/kickboxing/whatever tournament
6. There is no number 6

Good question. My goals are simple:

1.) Train and get my fat ass into shape. I've never been the same since surgery a couple of years ago.

2.) Learn how to incorporate a lot of the techniques I train into sparring, and make them effective.

Things NOT on my list:

1.) Promotions or rank.
2.) Tournament fighting.
3.) Becoming the uber-deadly. I'm too old for uber deadliness anyways.

This is gonna turn into a "Early New Years resolution" thread real fast. Wait, it already did.

Argh, **** it:
Fight in a shooto event before end 2008. There, I said it out loud.
Fight in a low-armour Kali event (I don't know of any DBMA gatherings here, so far call2arms looks most likely).
Stay injury-free while working up to these events.
