    Martial Arts Roll call: Whos training?

    I have been training in Tae Kwon Do for the last 5 years and Dan Zan Ryu Jujitsu for 2. I was curious who else trains and in what style.

    I find my training helps me with the mental side of road cycling. Having that mindset not to quit when it gets really hard. Kinda helps push me through and enduring the pain.

    So who else??

    I've trained in a bunch of styles over a dozen years and really enjoy aiki-jutsu stuff. I think there's a Dan Zan ryu near me. Is it more wrestling, grappling, joint manipulation, throws...?

    All of the above. It's start with rolls/falls, moves into locks, to takedowns, throws, then finishes. It is a samurai based art for when the sword play is done or before it can begin. Very much a "Do" art.

    Tai Chi. That one is so deceiving until you see it done quickly. Then you know it can be quite a devastating art. How long have you been at it Tom?

    About a year.

    Yeah, your right, my teacher is a little 98 pound Chinese man and he tapped my in the middle of the chest with a fingertip and put me on my butt! I had a small circular bruise and it felt like I'd been hit with a sledgehammer Chi energy is quite an awesome thing, properly focused! When he does his Kata's at speed, you can hear the air hum from his feet passing through the air.

    Recruit him for the Tour de Cure team.

    I got a Tai Chi video, but I feel rather like a dork standing in front of the TV and copying.

    After playing football yesterday, I feel like I was someone's practice pell.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    It can happen....improper position can really hurt you. Poor balance and ground contact makes for a foundation built on sand.

    I play with BIG STICKS and sharp edges: I practice/teach the Estalilla-Bansuelo style of Kabaroan Eskrima. I was recently honored with my Certified Master Instructor Certificate under Grandmaster Ramiro Estalilla, Jr and Associate Grandmaster Ed Basuelo. (www.kabaroan.com). I've also done a little of Serrada Eskrima under Ed Bansuelo, too, (the lineage is Angel Cabales - Anthony Davis - Ed Bansuelo) but am definately a novice in that art.

    Pic of me in my backyard several years ago, playing with a 30" baston (stick) and a 60" bankaw (staff)


    I wanted to do a little more "classical" MA training and have about a year of TKD. Definitely fighting the muscle memory learned in FMA when doing TKD, but that's part of mixed training, right.

    Don't worry about what you look like. Instead, fall inside yourself away from your body and merge with the flow.

    Your fundamentals should be breathing from the belly, and balance. Start simple and master a form. You'll feel the Chi rise from your feet upward, by the way (I'm not kidding!)

    It was a breathing exercise. I had to stand, hands in a "prayer" postion and try to warm different parts of my body. Controlling my Chi. Anytime I felt tension I had to relax that spot. Needless to say I naturally had alot of tension. It's something you have to get good at recognizing and getting rid of. Anyway when your body is use to functioning a certain way and then you go changing it, it tends to not response well. My back was sore for a days. LOL

    What are they too stubborn to tap out??

    We had one guy who did that. Passed out right in front of us. We were yelling at him to tap out and he wouldn't. He wasn't going to give in.

    He woke up right away as soon as the blood went back to his brain.

    correct, but is an instructor who's properly trained in the technique ALWAYS there? CPR almost always fails and a student who's gone unconscious can get brain damage as the arteries have collapsed and need to be re-opened.


    PS: Go up to your head instructor and say, "Sweep the leg Johnny!"
