Konnichi wa, I figured after spending a few days lurking around this forum I might as well join. Due to a shaky schedule I fade in and out of martial arts, but I continue to train however I can outside of the dojo. I am officially trained in karate (Orange belt at last leave, though only partly for lack of adequate skill, mostly for lack of time to train) and have observed and studied many others as to better understand future opponents.

I hope to fit in here as best as I can, and while my limited dojo training may cause me to forget specifics such as kata names...rather often actually, I can hold my own on average and have grown to understand much of the art's spiritual aspects.

...don't mind the bragging, I tend to resort to that old act when I am not quite sure what to say. Thank you for listening to my ramblings.

I've actually been here for a month, but guess I forgot to introduce myself.

I'm Clayton and from Pittsburgh, PA but go to school in Indiana, PA. I'm currently training in Ying Jow Pai Kung Fu (Northern Eagle Claw). I'm currently at a purple belt.

I'm learning from Master Rothrock's son, Arthur, since he's a close friend of mine. I'm looking forward to talking to some fellow practitioners of Ying Jow Pai.

Hi to all. First of all, I'm really glad that I've found one bigger forum that mainly all about martial arts.

I'm Marc and I'm from the Philippines. I practice Taekwondo, Muay Thai and Yaw Yan (A hybrid MA from the Philippines), Aikido, and Arnis/Eskrima/Kali. I'm also trying to learn Krav Maga through video tutorials with my friends.

I'm going to enjoy my stay here and I hope I'm going to make a lot of friends here.

Okay.
I've already made a couple of posts here.
Hello everyone.
I am from the Inland Northwest. I sell outdoor adventure equipment. I also perform variety entertainment at various local events. This includes magic, comedy, and strongman stunts.
I am in school to become a personal trainer.
My martial arts experience is varied. I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I have also trained in Goju, Nin-Po, and Shaolin Kung-fu. My favorite training I ever got was in Jun Fan/JKD from a student of Jesse Glovers. I trained privately with him and another instructor who speacialized in Brazilian Jiu Jutsu. I really got to learn a lot about grappling at this time, and combining the Jiu Jutsu training with the Jun Fan training taught me to combine the ranges more effectively. I learned to integrate the grappling seemlessly with my striking.
Unfortunately, my instructor got a bad job working 7 days a week and long shifts so he didn't have time to teach any more.
I have also taken sports nutrition classes in school.

Hello my fellow human and other assorted beings, i have been lurking for a few hours now i suppose, in all honesty.. its 7am, i have nothing whatsoever to do, and im bored out of my skull after being awake all night pi.. uh, downloading software i fully intend to buy(at some point), ahem... anyhow, i came across this forum by chance, and decided that it was time i became a member of a martial arts forum, as it were

I have been involved in martial arts since i was 9, i started out in a relatively small room in the back of a Chinese restaurant learning northern shaolin kung fu, the school did grow larger, moving to its own building and such,eventually i had to stop attending for personal reason, i was young.. the school was a good distance away, and i had no way to get there any longer, BUT.. i never gave up learning, in the absence of a person to teach me physically, i continued refining what i had learned, and put much more effort into the mental aspect of training, through books and many lonely nights spent in a dark bedroom with nothing to do but ponder, as i still do...

i grew up in the south.. was raised in a "country" family i suppose, call em rednecks if you want, good people nonetheless, i have a lot more experience with physical confrontation that i would like to admit, i have learned a lot from all of that as well

though i am now.. pretty out of shape, at least compared to what i once was, mentally i am much better off now than i ever was, and the good thing about that.. it only gets better with time and continued effort, and i would like to further my physical training, to play catchup with all the thinking i have done over the years, i suppose

so anyway, thats me sorta, i figure hanging out here for awhile, will be good for me, maybe inspire me to get off my lazy ..ness, and do something again... not to mention, i really look forward to the opinions of others on the "philosophy" side of martial arts/fighting

-R.
