Find the best karate instructor in your area. Good karate schools have striking (kickboxing, boxing) AND grappling (BJJ, wrestling). And good instructors recognize the worth of these disciplines.

Hi,

I started BJJ in November 2006 at RGA in London, when I stayed until the economy collapsed last December. Currently at Combat Athletics in Coventry, at least until the end of August.

If you want more info than that, full details of my training here (and I mean full ;)). For everything pre-BJJ, summary here.

hello, my name is David 'Pygar' Cardamone and I studied karate at Apollo's Karate, under the instruction of Dale 'Apollo' Cook. His style he teaches is now Tai Jitsu these days. Apollo was an amazing fighter with over 150 fights and 4 World Champ Belts.

I trained on and off, with Prozac to blame for years of lack of martial arts discipline. After I got off Prozac, I went back to training, and did 27 fights. 21 win, 21Ko/Sub, 6 loss.

Hello everyone!

I have enjoyed reading the posts here and decided to join.

Over the past twenty years I have gone in and out of MA training, mostly the Japanese arts. I studied aikido with Mitsuge Saotome at his dojo in Maryland and currently study battodo with Dave Drawdy at the Capital Area Budokai.

I also have a lifelong MA movie addiction, probably due to thoughtless exposure to Shaolin kung-fu movies as a child.

Most recently I started my own little website, mainly for my own self-study, and it has links to a few of the quality essays from this forum. (http://www.modernbushido.com)

Welcome, look forward to hearing from you. Tried your site link, but got this message:
"modernbushido.com is registered to a client of Netregistry"
instead of content.
