    Holy crap.

    I once trekked over a swamp which was called "Moldy ass swamp" in the local language, but still you UK people are strange with your town names.

    I'm out in Dorking surrey so a little far from you but most Judo clubs are fairly cheap in comparison to say BJJ or even the Chun.
    BTW I also did WC for 4 years.

I'm actually quite embarrassed i bought into it for so long...I did get to a point where i was "good" and being Oriental looking they used me a lot to give credibility to the school, but quite frankly a Wing Chun certificate is about as useful as toilet paper in the martial arts world. The reason i got into BJJ is cos even in my Kung fu days i really wanted to compete, my instructor gave me a variety of lame excuse as to why we don't (the too deadly one, the my school is too small, etc)...i'm ashamed i bought that shit too

    Dont be, mate. Everyone buys into it until they find something to compare it to. Most people here at some point, for one thing. Not to mention no-one actually expects thier teacher to hold them back for no good reason.
    I'm glad you got back into it and can start really learning something.

    Although I never volunteer the information, when people ask me what type of martial art I practice, I always tell them, "I hug men in pajamas."

    It kind of backfired once. A guy gave me his phone number.
