I wouldn't really worry about a lack of strength. We get this idea from the wonderfully athletic martial artists on film that everyone has to have rippling muscles to do this stuff.

Just pick an art, any art that interests you and go for it! The worst that could happen is that you find it doesn't suit you, and move on to try another. But I guarantee that you will gain some strength in the meantime.

Good luck!

Hey I'm Darian Bradshaw and I'm currently a camo belt in TKD. I'm glad I've found a website to were I can talk to people about MA due to the lack of interest people have in it where I live.

I can't speak for grapplers, but in karate, if you're relying on strength, you're doing it wrong. Yes, it's easier for really large, strong individuals to throw you around or resist you doing the same, but alternatives can be found once your techniques are good.

Hello All

I am new to the board and thought I would take a few moments to introduce myself.

My name is Glen Pitcher and I have been training in the Martial Arts for 30yrs. I started when I was ten and if you do the math you now know how old I I hate to say the words LOL.

I have spent the vast majority of time training in Japanese martial arts. I trained in Judo to my brown belt under Jim Walker 6th of Maple Leaf Judo Dojo. In Kenpo Karate to my brown belt under Roy Dixon 2nd Dan and Bujinkan Ninjutsu to my blue belt under Frank Hill of the Durham Bujinkan Ninjutsu Dojo. I then found Aiki-Jujutsu and decided that was what I had been looking for. I trained in Aiki-Jujutsu under Al Evans 9th dan Kaiden and Paul Fox 8th dan Menkyo Kaiden of Chokushin Aiki-Jujutsu. As well as Rob Stein who is a 3rd Dan in Aiki-Jujutsu ranked by the CJC.

I now run my own Dojo ( Musubi Dojo ) in Bowmanville Ontario I am ranked Mokuroku in Chokushin Aiki-Jujutsu ( this license is equivalent to 4-5th dan in the Kyu/Dan ranking system ). I have also ranked with Canadian Jujutsu Council and currently hold the rank of 5th Dan with them.

I have worked in the law enforcement & security field since I was 18 in various capacities. Some of those being as a youth correctional worker, Correctional Officer in adult maximum security jails , Armored Car Guard and currently in the Nuclear Security industry. While in Corrections I was part of our tactical teams ICIT and CET ( Institutional Crisis Intervention Team and Cell Extraction Team )and was also a Use of Force Instructor. I am currently active as a Use of Force Instructor in the Nuclear Security Industry and have been for the past 8yrs.

Through our dojo's law enforcement training section I have also had the pleasure of teaching local area high schools , held seminars for other martial art dojo's, security companies and the Canadian Armed Forces.

I hope this gives you some insight as to my martial arts / self defense background and I look forward to getting to know all of you.
