Loc: East, TX
25 yrs of Martial Arts and Combatives training and instructing.

8 yrs Law Enforcement including High Risk Warrant service

2 yrs Close Protection and Asset Protection in Post-Katrina NOLA and Gulfport Miss.

Creator of the C.H.A.O.S. conflict resolution system

I put a lot of time and energy into my "modern" martial arts...firearms training and weapons retention. I study and teach traditional Aikijutsu/Kenjutsu. I also use the principles of Aiki to teach modern unarmed and "not optimally" armed conflict resolution tactics to LE and MIL personell. I use a new strategy to teach old principles.

I follow the teachings of Soke Don Angier and Sensei James Williams, although I am not claiming lineage to these remarkable men.

My lineage is "Take Seiken Bujutsu" as taught by Sensei Colman Morris in TX

I have trained in Kamishin Ryu Karate, Paq Wa, Chinese Gung Fu, Kali Silat, Jeet Kune Do, BJJ, fought amature MMA and have trained formally with a former Army Special Forces soldier in silent dispatching, silent entry and demolitions.

Other than that I am a student first, no matter what system Im training in, and very open to suggestion. I hope to be able to offer some small contribution to this forum in return for some insight of my own. Thank You.

Hello everybody, my name is Michael and I am a business owner and an MMA enthusiast. I love the UFC and fighting in general. I stumbled across this forum and decided to join and start interacting. Here is so info about me.

Personal: I have trained in Taekwondo, Boxing, Muay Thai, & BJJ. I have been watching MMA since UFC 1, back when there were only a few rules and no weight classes. UFC has come a long way and really evolved into an amazing representation of the sport (for the most part).

Business: I own and manage a company called Mad Panda, LLC. My company sells self defense products and martial arts weapons online at the Mad Panda Store. Some of the items we sell include knives, kubotans, riot batons, steel shot SAP gloves, stun guns, pepper spray, blowdart guns, cane swords, throwing knives, nunchaku, daggers, and more.

I look forward to spending time on this forum and getting to know the users. Thanks for reading!

Hey gang,

I started TKD MDK (unaffiliated) back in college. Not an MMA, but lots of additional techniques, with emphasis on practical boxing guard and punches, basic jiujutsu, and stamina (lots of heavy bag rounds). Trained there for 2.5-3 years, advancing to red belt and beginning training for black. Graduated, and couldn't find a good school where I ended up working. Lucky to find kiddie karate at racketball courts. Needless to say, I wasn't interested in paying a lot more to work out at one-tenth the intensity.

New job now in Philly, and I'm training at the old WTSDA headquarters. Good people, but I'm missing my time with the heavy bag. And the forms are just different enough that old muscle memory is a hindrence rather than a help in that department. And I really can't stand the headgear. At least I don't have to wear the silly chest protector though... In the end, it just feels good to collect my share of blisters and bruises again.

My name is A.J. I have been practicing the martial arts for 14 years off and on. I am a 43 year old woman who loved martial arts in her teens, but, as many do, got side tracked by life until her boys asked her to go to class with them. They helped me find a new love for the martial arts and so, I have practiced for the last 7 years pretty much non-stop (on a daily basis, I mean). My styles are Shotokan, Kenpo, & Aikido. I am very knowledgeable and love to pass along any great finds that I come across. I have already make a few posts sharing some of my great finds.

Hi my name is Anddie and I am new to martial arts. I have always wanted to take a form of martial arts, but never had the courage to do so. Now at the age of 40, I have decided to do all of the things that I've always wanted to try. I've just started taking BJJ (1 month), though I love it. The drills are taking a bit of getting used to. I am the turtle of the class and usually the only female, but am determined to learn and enjoy. Any advice for a newbie?

Welcome Anddie. Take it from a male turtle in BJJ - don't get discouraged, and keep at it. You will get better. smile
