Originally trained for a year when I was 8 and didnt get too far (same style, same club) and like most kids I dropped out. Got back into it aged 14 and remembered everything from when I trained before - stances, terms, punches, kicks, blocks and kata.

Nearly 5 years later, I am nearly ready for shodan (1st dan) but that will probably be put off a bit. I can grade in November, but go to Uni in September

What about yourself?

yay!! our Icon is now active :cool:.. so come and join up guys ...


ah sounds like good stuff Gaskell ...

I do Ju jitsu and have only recently started (September last year) So I'm heading for my 6th Kyu and have a grading soon... Dan is quite hard to reach in Ju jitsu and can take up to 7 years so I'm not looking that far yet.. My nearest aim is the 5th Kyu which is quite hard to get since it's the beginning of the senior grades.. I hope someone else on here does Ju jitsu or Judo

Mmm, Judo I'm afraid I didn't like, then again I tried it when I was about 11, and cause I was tall they put me in with the adults, so I think being thrown around and pinned by 30+ women didn't really do it for me lol.

Love karate though I'm hopefully going for my Brown belt at the end of March eee! lol.

Only just got back into full time training recently after really buggering up the liagments in the ankle - a proper sign that I'm addicted to my sport, just being able to do a full warm up again left a *huge* smile on my face

Yeah; the grading is intense and quite a bit is required even at 7th kyu but it's very physical and fun/handy to learn mainly because it is self defence.. It will be great if you pick it up I'll be more than happy to get someone to speak to hehe ...

Will sign you up for the badge soon

ah fair enough.. That usually happens in Judo.. Anyways; we do most/all of the Judo throws from self defence mechanisms which makes full use of the opponents momentum ... Judo is derived from Ju jitsu anyways so we rule hehe.. No controversy intended

I started Wadoryu (think so) Karate couple of months ago to help improve my confidence after a serious assault on one of my friends!
I'm only doing a entry level course as it was a choice between Black Belt Karate and horse-riding! I have graduated to red stripe.
I love karate but havn't been able to go for a while due to illness and injury from horse-riding!

Karate is very common indeed; doesn't necessarily mean it's a dominating martial art :p:... Jitsu rocks
