    My wife and I were recently in Tennessee for a training camp and we ran into a fellow martial artist. He asked what we trained in and we told him TSD. To this he replied, "you mean real martial arts". This was funny and interesting because he was wearing a shirt for his school that teaches Krav Maga. I just thought that was cool. It is nice to be respected.

    I'm not even sure what "real martial arts" should mean.

    Welcome to MartialTalk, Pvols. Hope you enjoy it.

    What kind of training camp were you enjoying?

    It was actually a sport karate camp. I enjoy traditional TSD, and so do my wife and kids, but they love the sport karate also. They have been training with swords, kamas, and staves. My wife competed in NASKA this year and won all her divisions, so the family is traveling to Chicago next week for her to get her award and compete in a NASKA tournament there.

    They are all real (unfortunately, imo). Even if some look imaginary... :cool:

    The tournament was at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. It was the AKA Warrior Cup tournament. You should Google it and try to go next year.

    Was part of the AKA 40+ years ago and I think I went to this tournament about 5 years ago. If I recall it was in the lower level. Sparring was Stop / point sparring. Is that correct?

    I find the (KravMaga) guys reaction funny. It's has if he has had experience with a fake martial art or some other type of bullshido. :D
