Hi! My name is Azlimmi Himzal. I'm from Johor Bahru, Malaysia. I have been (and still am) practising karate since 1986. I have studied Shotokan (my main ryu), Okinawan Shorin-ryu Seibukan and kobudo. I run a small club and would love to learn from everyone.

Ossu!!!

Azlimmi

Hi, I have a question about opening up your own dojo. As a good rule of thumb how many years experience is good before opening your own dojo? I am currently involved in Tae Kwon Do and will receive my black belt within two years of starting. I have self taught myself Jeet Kune Do, and have taken some kickboxing and aikido classes. My previous experience has helped in progessing me in TKD. Thanks in advance for your repsonses!

Hello everyone! I feel slightly embarrassed about my previous post on the general martial arts forum, because I sprung such a question without even introducing myself.

My name is Jason, but I just go by Zinc everywhere online. I'm still a beginner (as I hope I will always be, no matter the age) in the martial arts world, as I only have around a year and a half under my belt. I currently train in Budo Taijutsu, or Ninjutsu as most call it. I realize that it is not *true* true Ninjutsu, and I am quite fine with it- I feel it is still an extremely potent art because of the various sources it draws from.:P I am extremely interested the history of Japan, and am hoping to go to college to receive a degree in it (Right now it's down to books, manuscripts, and web pages :D). I am 17, and hopefully in a couple years will be off to the reserves, and then a little of active duty after I finish college. God permitting I survive that, I'd like to travel to Japan to *somehow* make good use of that degree.

I am (as you can already tell) quite horrible at the moment in most things concerning the body, and I will be snooping about the forums here to hopefully better myself in these different areas. I ask humbly for a guiding hand when needed, and my hand in return in whatever modest areas I could help. I hope I am welcome here, and I thank you for letting me post on your forums!

Hi all, I'm Lucy. I have no reputable training experience, but martial arts has always fascinated me. I did expend quite a bit of energy and had an overall positive experience at what was a semi-McDojo; but that was of course, when I was much younger for about three years. When I was a kid. And now, I'm still a teenager, but my interest in martial arts has never been more ablaze.

Nice to meet you...I'll probably be lurking about. smile

I hope you find (or have already found) a dojo that suits you and the sort of skills you want to develop.

Lucy:
If you're interested in martial arts like you say you are, then you should make an effort to find a good school and start training again.
As a teenager, you're at a point in your life where making good choices is important to your future, and starting back up again at your age would be an excellent choice, in my opinion.
I started at the age of 44, and while I'm learning a lot now, I only wish that I had the fore-sight to start at a much younger age.
Don't wait. Time passes much faster than you realize.

Let me second what Choonbee said. If you want it go after it now and not later.I can tell you from experience that learning the arts is easier when you are young.Good luck.

I can't believe I have to dust this one off, but...


Seek the advice of a qualified instructor.
