    just wondering what you folks have practiced.. I have noticed a lot of people mention it so i figured I would ask..

    i have done a little bit of TKD and kenpo, but most of my training is in Judo and Isshinryu

    I have about 6 years of Tang Soo Do. I am back after taking 18 months off, just to take a break from burn out.

    I would like to give tang su do a chance, but I don't think there is anywhere around here that teaches it.

    bump for kziwarrior ;)

    i just found out they are teaching shotokan near where i go to school... i might jump on that since my background in isshinryu is largely shotokan-based anyway..

    black: i very badly want to do some hapkido, but the closest thing offered around here is fencing.. and it's an hour away.

    ? How did I get brought into this, lol.
    My primary discipline is Ken Zen Ichii. I hold the rank of Godan and am one of the primary/senior instructors for our branch (BSR, sorry, site hasn't been updated recently, I've been busy with a few things, check back in a month or so). I also have extensive training in various Jiu-Jitsu systems and weapons.

    I'll agree with Backnblack (I often carry, alternating between my .40 and .45). But my preferred weapons are knives and the walking-cane:wink:.

    Great thread:icon_ banana:

    And for selfless promotion:icon_ banana:

    HaHaHaHaHaHaHa Sam!!! That studio would be like the holy Grail Man!!!! I myself am a Pedro sauer affiliate.. Pedro is the man I have been to one if his three day seminars he is amazing so for u to have a 1st degree black belt ( jorge jiminez) less than five min away.. u HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT!!! I have not personally heard of Jorge but if he is one of Pedro's students he is sure to be very technical. I can assure u that u wont be dissapointed!!! (There was my rant. I apologize) ;)

    oh I meant JJ in general... I loved watching gracie kick...everything..in mma, but I'm not much of a grappler, despite my judo experience. can I get away with not doing much of that?

    Most all I do Sam is grapple. So if that's not something u enjoy maybe its not ur cup of tea.. its just amazing the different things u can do from one move to another once again IMO...
