    Wing Chun Kung Fu teaches both defensive and offensive moves..

    You dont get measured in belts, but in stages...

    i got to stage 2 of 5 which im very proud of..

    Stage 1 teaches the defensive and conuter defensive with offensive moves..

    If i had to choose i would go for Jiu jitsu.

    It works, which is the most important thing.

    UCL doesn't have Jiu Jitsu, ONLY Jitsu. Would what you said still be true?

    Can't say I agree with this whole Owen love-in. He took the club which made him for a ride over the contract negotiations, and his bluff was called. HE made the decision to go to Real, so HE obviously thought he was good enough to force 2 of Ronaldo, Raul and Morientes to sit on the bench. Why should we feel sorry for him now he's found out that's not the case? Oh and I'd love to sit in the Bernabau and pick up thousands of € every week
    heh true.

    Get paid thousands for doing nothing !

    TaeKwonDo, teaches offence and defence, good discipline, warm ups before training starts, did this for quite a few years, injury prevented me continuing (the injury wasnt sustained whilst training)

    he has hardly played so that is surely a pretty pointless statement
    And did you see them?

    He played three games right, I should think that at ZP level he should be playing better than he is. I just hope for your sake that he gets back.

    I don't believe he is tactically astute enough and last after watching Newcastle get an absolute pasting by the Tigers on Saturday it looks to me like Wilko is spending too much time thinking in the wring direction. He's a great kicker, no one can deny him that but the rest of his game leaves a lot to be desired.

    I suppose, your chioces are limited. What about Hodgson?
    You best hope that its a good decision, you wouldnt want a repeat of Suncorp in '98 78-Zip or the last slaughtering at Suncorp in June. And its not just to play us, then you've got the Kiwi's and Tana will absoloutely turn him on his head.

    I think you should do either; TaeKwonDo,or Jitsu.. I can not end this post without putting up my favorite martial art!!(I know it's not on the list, but I have to say it!) Wushu it is the best!! I know its's a performance art, or a dance as some call it, but it can be very useful!! Jet li need I say more?!*smile*

    I doubt Owen would be dropped by Swen...
    For Defoe, he might consider it.
