Been doing BJJ 3-4 days a week for 2+ years. The Gym I go to is more oriented toward MMA so it is more fighting focused than Sport BJJ. Points and scoring never come up in training.

If we ever make it down that way I would love to bring my boys and roll for the day. Looks like some mighty fine training.

The charicter of the Sensei dictates the quality of a dojo.

My doors are always open to anyone that is in the area or just passing through. I have been welcomed as a visitor at many places by many people and I always try to extend the same hospitality.

Just keep in mind that most Marital Arts don't train you for real life combat. Being able to spare in class is entirely different than having to defend yourself in a real life or death situation.

Yes the martial arts can help, just remember that it's often the quickest and simplest moves that are going to work in a real life situation.

Don't get obsessed over styles and forms because they mean absolutely nothing in real life. Learn to end a fight as quickly as possible.

Little bit of a lot of things. McDojo karate, drunken brawls, backyard Muay Thai, attacked a few times in the street, Krav Maga, traditional Jujitsu, Navy boarding party def tactics, bit of boxing.

I'm not that well trained in any one thing but i've a fair bit of direct experience of violence. I know enough to react quickly, decisively and finish it fast. I've come to appreciate the ancient art of cheating ie bar stools, your mates, ash trays, hit them first, running away, car keys... that sort of thing.

EDIT: I dont have much experience with ground work, which is a weakness nowadays as it seems all the young guys are into it. We had a BJJ instructor come and teach a few times at our trad jujitsu school and covered the basics in Krav Maga, but its pretty complicated and not much stuck in my head. When the kids are a little older and i have more time i'll investigate the MMA club that has just opened in town.

4th degree BB traditional TKD, aikido and jujitsu to round things out. Agree, simple is better, flashy stuff gets you landed on your arse. Also concur that age will change how you fight. I had both knees scoped last year to clean things up, but they can't take the pounding they used to. But martial training is a way of life, always being situationally aware. Many tiimes that alone can keep you from needing to defend yourself or your loved ones.

There's an old saying, "Never pick a fight with an old guy. If he doesn't think he can beat you, then he will just kill you." Age certainly does change the way you fight. I can't do the pretty kicks like I used to, but I sure have learned some treacherous moves that will put you down and out fast. That is what you need in a real situation. Point fighting is SO TOTALLY different than real life. It's fun, but just like having dessert - doesn't really do anything good for you.

Coming from hardstyle karate, softstyle kungfu was an eye-opener. It was like going from checkers to chess. Of course, the instructor and personal commitment is what matters more than the style.

I train in Kyokushin Karate two nights a week. I'd like to start Judo but I haven't found any dojos near where I live, but when I do I'll be signing up right away. :D

NOT ART


BJJ 3 times a week, muay Thai once a week. I get to actually use it in the field several times a month.
I couldn't agree more. I am not interested in the "arts" side of a fighting system.

Do you have a training center for jkd or do you self study? I had to self teach based on what I read due to the absence of any sort of formal center in my area. Truly awesome idealogy though, love the practicality and simplicity.

Boxing, Bjj, are my main focus. I have the best of muay thai, jj, karate, and aikido mixed in. As I just posted, I love jkd and have only done self studies. One thing I learned from jkd: Never kick above the waste! Also useful in mma for those that are involved. When you think about the benefits of a head kick, mid kick the openings you give negates any positive.
