    Hey,
    I'm a huge Martial arts fan and have been from a young age. I am more into Wushu than Japanese or Korean styles. I have done Karate and Tae Kwon Do, but in the end I found that I prefered to the Chinese styles of Martial arts. I would still like try out Jujitsu or maybe some Japanese weapon styles like Iaido or Kenjutsu. Currently I am training in the art of Hung Gar and Tai Chi, although I also do Straight sword style. I REALLY want to learn Crane Style or Seven star mantis boxing, but I haven't found anything encougaging in my area. Is Jujitsu any good?
    wow.. anthor Taiji fan like me!!

    oh yea, we have many black belt kids too. but they are only awarded the junior black belt, that is when they reach the age of 16, they would need another grading to become an official one (and remove the red tag on their belt)
    glad that I was already 16 when I came to the grading heh

    It does vary.. however; there are limits on how many gradings you can do in a certain amount of months in jitsu.. and + I don't see the point in rushing really; might as well take it easy..

    i got my BB when i was 14 but it was only junior. after that the WJJF has a "gold tab" system which is basically just weapon work. then at 16 i took senior black and now im nearly 18 and im off to liverpool for 2nd Dan. im movin about as fast as they will let me, third dan takes a further 3 years or so. hope i can find a club at uni....:confused:

    tah, i know that if i go to warwick then the club there will be run by a guy who i used to train with; a real ****.
    but nottingham might be more promising

    i may have missed this earlier but what grade are you?
    where do you train?
    how long you been training?

    Surely all the jitsu they have done should help their Judo.. Yeah I guess you have to start somewhere :p:; but I love it and really look forward to carrying on .. In fact I'm going for training in about 40 mins

    Hey, i just discovered this society. I'm a 3rd degree black belt in Taekwondo. I have been training for 14 years (wow! i rarely think about how long it's been), though, I can't go as much because my university is like 60 miles from where I train.
