Trained with nunchaku, sai, katana (iaito)/bokken and done some stuff with staff (bo and jo), tonfa and had a quick play with kama (put them down when I couldnt work out how to block without getting me knuckles clouted/cut).

The only link I have for Bo kata is this. The book "Bo - Karate Weapon of Self Defense" by Fumio Demura has the kata Shushi No Kon Sho in.

If you have done any empty hand martial arts (particularly karate), then you should be able to convert the empty hand stuff to various weapons (nunchaku, tonfa, sai or bo) quite easily. The shotokan Heian and Wado ryu Pinan kata go very well with the weapons, with Kanku Dai and Bassai Dai being "interesting" with sai or nunchaku

If anyone has heard, the finest Light heavyweight from Pride and the UFC are having a fight. Chuck Liddell versus Wanderlei Silva is going to be an immense match. Predictions on the winner?

I actually heard he wants to f*** chuck......

And i predict Wand wins. That is assuming Chuck beats Babalu first. I only wish the fight was under Pride rules. Seeing Wand without the soccer kicks and stomps wont be the same.

I dont think Chuck is a massive underdog, but i just cant see him beating Wanderlei.

Now we need to see Fedor in the UFC. Although this will probably result in Sylvia being killed.

Hi again

Bascially, at trianing last Monday a girl really really injured my hand. I was holding a kick pad out and she missed, kicked my hand full pelt with trainers on. I thought I'd broken it. Afterwards, it went blue and started shaking. I have now been given the all clear. But the problem is that I am really worried about this happening again because it was so reckless, it was as good as deliberate. She also ripped the other girls skin on her hand and bruised it. She is really silly and I don't want to go to trianing now because I have paid for a ice hockey camp and if she does this again I won't be fit to go. I am not a wimp and I am prepared for injuries but this was really uneccessary and silly. Anyone can cause a lot of harm to a delicate part of the body by kicking without TKD trianing, nevermind with it. Accidents happen but you should respect the person helping you trian-fights are different

Also in free sparring she started to kick a kid half her size full contact. She is spoilin the sessions

Raise your concerns with the person who leads your sessions.. don't need these kind of people in a training environment unless you want it. No-one likes to see the gung-ho antics described above.

I've had experience with people like that. In my case, it was the teacher's assistant. You should definitely bring it up with the coach, but if she keeps trying to hurt you I'd suggest teaching her a lesson during sparring.

I suggest to raise the issue with the person before taking it to the club instructor.. Mistakes happen, but as you said it's probably deliberate. I have hurt a few people during training, but it's either because I didn't mean to or they were just not working together with me, which in turn leads to accidents..
Well, when I say hurt, I really mean, terribly winded them :p:

Its been raised with her numberous times, and she was told off by the instructor last week. She is younger than us anyway, still in early teen at Senior school.

She sounds fairly new to the whole exercise...
Perhaps take her aside and explain how important it is to be compassionate with your training partners - yes, we need to use force when sparring - but the aim should never be to harm your partner. One of the joys about martial arts for me is being aggressive with friends in a safe environment and we definitely hurt each other sometimes - but mostly accidentally. At the end of the day it's important to be able to go out once you leave the dojo and have a drink or a laugh with your partners. If the animosity is carried outside due to recklessness, you are losing out on a whole side of martial arts - mental conditioning.

Perhaps you could take her under your wing and teach her a few things maybe?

Just try and guide her towards acceptable levels of force..

Hm I'm predicting a Chuck victory tbh, Wandy isn't unstoppable (Note Tito+Vitor)...

Plus, I like Tim. He's underated, especially if you look at what he did to Mcgee and Rogrigeuz...

But yeah, Fedor would mash him up and spit him out. As would cro-cop.

Hmmm is that MMAth i see? Wanderlei lost to Tito and Belfort like 7 years ago, i think he would destroy them both now. Chuck could quite easily win, but i just cant see Wand losing to Chuck, that is of course if the fight ever goes ahead which they are doubting now.

Tim underated? Dont you mean overated? Mcgee and Rodriguez, arent top heavyweights, what i saw of Rodriguez in WFA he didnt look great either.

UFC's lately arent looking good. Although UFN 6 tomorrow looks ok Diego vs Karo as main event, and Leben is always entertaining (especially when he gets knocked out by fighters from "Japan where it is easier"). Will be great or very boring i think. UFC 62 looks poor, i dont want to see Bonnar and Griffin again, only the Babalu and Chuck fight looks exciting.

Mayhem and Lawler though, which will be awesome. Anything with Mayhem in it is great, they need him in the UFC, he was too skinny against GSP (who will beat Hughes)
