    Just curious to see if any of you guys trained in any martial arts. got into brazilian jiu jitsu recently and it's more fun than a barrel of monkies. Being a white belt i do get tapped often, but that's part of the fun. I'm hoping to train at the machado school over the summer.

    I had karate classes when I was 7.
    Gymnastics while I was 8 threw 10.
    Soccer from 10 yrs- 12 yrs.

    All which coincadently laid the foundation from 18 to current: DIM MAK.

    There are no classes, at least that I know of. I have a good amount of books
    and instructional tapes on the form and studied along with my closest friends.

    I've only had to use the knowledge once.

    I'm going for my green belt in Goju-Ryu this month.

    I set up a badass makiwara in my house.
    It's really just a hard canvas sack and mine's filled with white beans
    and copper BB's. Hitting a heavy bag after the makiwara is like punching a pillow.


    * mine has more blood spots on it. Not that there's any comparison to Bruce Lee.

    i did tae kwon do from teh time I was 6 until I was 16. I got to second degree black belt.

    I haven't really done anything with martial arts since then and I am thinking about getting into moi thai kickboxing or gracie ju jitsu.

    I think I want something else, though...more ninja-like.

    yeah ive been doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for little over a year now. it really is fun and most important of all practical.

    which Machado are you planning on training under? theyre all top shelf but i personally think Jean Jacques is the best.
