    Help choosing a martial art/cross-training martial art(s)

    Alright, JKS. THANK you. That is a little bit of what i'm looking for. Now let me explain a little bit about myself. I have trained in a martial art that I feel is a good martial art, but did not get the max out of what I should have because I feel that the dojos that I trained at were what...

    Help choosing a martial art/cross-training martial art(s)

    What would be great, is if somebody with real martial arts experience here on this Martial Talk forums had something to teach. It appears as if only those who are completely biased on their martial art is avoiding trying to insult another person with their biased opinion, rather than accepting...

    Help choosing a martial art/cross-training martial art(s)

    Instead of arguing with you like I could do until the cows (or kangaroos, whichever you prefer) come home, I am going to first notate that I am looking for an answer of which list of martial arts could provide me with the most out of what i'm looking for. As I have said previously, I am looking...

    PS: I would be very mindful of your decisions, your choice of words, and how anyone else chooses to approach this matter. As I understand, there are rules and no one is entitled to break them, no matter their "status quo" or their "time in service" on the Martial Talk forums. The rules are...

    Help choosing a martial art/cross-training martial art(s)

    Rather than making an assumption (***=u+me), realize that I am trying to build my training on a better mindset. The reality of the subject is I have been to war, I have been to combat and I have fought and have killed men. By a weird coincidence, instead of being constructive in your reply, it...

    Help choosing a martial art/cross-training martial art(s)

    Hello, I am asking for a little bit of guidance. First, I would like to inform you that I have been in and out of practice in the Martial Arts for about 17 years now. My vision of the martial arts is primarily defense. I feel that while you should not go looking for a fight, you should also...

    Determining the credintials of an instructor?

    Hey guys (and gals), thanks for taking the time to read this thread. Hopefully someone (preferably Professor John Bishop.. hehe) could provide me with some accurate and helpful information. So, I have found the martial art that I feel that I have longed for: Kajukenbo. My reasons I will keep...

    Thank you (all members, admins, and moderators MT)

    This is just a very humble thank you from me to all of those here within the Martial Talk community. First, I would like to address my attitude and demeanor when I came to MT. I humbly admit that I was misguided, ill-informed, arrogant, and bull-headed when I first arrived. I believed that my...

    What is the difference between Kenpo/Kempo and Kajukenbo?

    I would also like to shout out a very big THANK YOU to Mr. Professor John Bishop, for his very informative website, http://www.kajukenboinfo.com/ , and for his youtube videos as well. Had he not been so careful at explaining all of the concepts and attributes as well as techniques, I would have...

    What is the difference between Kenpo/Kempo and Kajukenbo?

    Now I understand what the word Ka-ju-ken-bo means: Ka - Karate Ju - Judo Ken - Kenpo Bo - Chinese boxing (at least, this is what i've found only over the internet alone) And I understand that the above simply states that Kajukenbo is pretty much a mash of a number of great martial arts...

    Help Choosing a Martial Art?

    Hey everybody, I think that I have finally found my personal liking to Kajukenbo. I could explain why; but I feel that some things are better left "unsaid". If anyone has anything that they would comment on or about Kajukenbo, please do so! Thanks!

    Well, I mean no disrespect; but to me, It is all about me. I don't know any of you from adam or abel; but anyone who has relavent advice to the question asked, I am willing to listen to. I am not a Martial Arts encyclopedia, and some have more experience in the martial arts than I do. I am not...

    Help Choosing a Martial Art?

    Well, rather than arguing with the "forum guru" here, I am going to maintain my composure, ask questions, and disregard anything about the PAST brought up (it is the PAST, which is exactly where it should be left). The only thing that was suggested to me last time, was Ninjutsu (as far as I can...

    Well, that was back in '09, just as you said! Certainly you must know, things change as people learn from their mistakes. I will assume to disregard this comment. No offense, but I find this comment of yours irrelevant to anything that I asked. Thanks, MJS.

    Hello to you all and thank you for taking the time to read/answer my question! I am interested in a specific "style", if you will, that includes a group of various different techniques that I would like to apply in self defense situations. I will begin with what i've already looked into...

    Reinvention of "Aries Kai"

    Hello to all, I would just like to take this time to reinvent myself to Martial Talk (as my last experience here wasn't necessarily the 'best' one, after all) and to the members - from new to the seasoned. I also give my respect to all of those who would have any advice and responses to all...

    what does sparring mean to you?

    Sparring is what makes you proficient in the street or in the ring in the style of martial art that you're practicing. Your opponent in the street or ring isn't going to let you sit there while you do "this" or "that" to him; he's going to fight back. How you practice/train for that determines...

    Another Terrorist Attack?

    I think i'll disagree on that last part: Once they take away my 2nd amendment and/or anything else in that Constitution; then I'll side with you on that one. Once that happens, even the Secret Service won't stop me (and many others) from walking right into that White House and slapping the...

    Street Effective

    Agreed. Never heard of a criminal that stole a car without the keys who didn't know how to boost the car in the first place. Never heard of a criminal shooting someone that didn't know how to shoot at all. Never heard of a criminal beating someone up (even/especially black belts) without...

    What is your new year's resolution?

    Working on my temper/anger, meditate more (don't do it enough), learn to bite my tongue more often and be nice even when something bothers me, learn to knock the chip off my shoulder, learn to be more forgiving, learn not to fall for petty arguments and other types of BS, learn to not take...
