    Stupid Weapon Injuries

    Have any of you had any stupid weapons injuries? I did. Today, I was running down this narrow passageway with my bo staff (I was going to the open park where I could practice. Well, there was a petrusion from a fence, and the bo staff was parallel to the ground. I ran at around 7 mph and I...

    Has MMA popularity helped or hurt the MA Community?

    Exactly. You don't focus on one style, like USSD (Kenpo) or most other schools. I know many people just do MA today to be physically fit these days too though, which is seen in every school, but much more in MMA schools. I go to USSD, and the low ranked belts only care about being fit, but when...

    What Belt Are You?

    I didn't think it would be rude to ask. I was just curious.

    What Belt Are You?

    What belt are you, and what do you practice? I just became a blue-green belt, and I study Shaolin Kenpo.

    OF all the

    Well, I use more than one. When people bug the heck out of me, I grab their fingers and squeeze them, causing them to be quiet. Another thing I like to use that don't injure people (Unless I have to) are wrap techniques. I do Shaolin Kenpo and for those of you who practice it, you know what the...

    Finding my art

    What about USSD (United Studios of Self Defense)? You said you wanted a place that is about self defense, and not to totally wreck your opponent. USSD is a Shaolin Kempo school, and it focuses on hand work, but it also has fancy techniques that utilize the legs alot (Like "Stature of the...

    Beggining Weapon Fighting

    I forgot to say this, but Sensei did say that I could learn Bo Staff.

    Why would you

    I'm not an instructor. I'm a young student if you will. Abd I learn MA for the experience and just to learn the art, not to lose weight. I'n not self concious as much as most people are. I'm actually a bit under average weight, so I'm in fine physically.

    Advice for a slow learner

    Just keep practicing. By the time your a green belt, you'll be a little Jackie Chan *Your results may vary :highfive:*
  18. xTNVx NirVana

    Why would you

    You are very right. My Sensei is overwight, but he is very talented in Shaolin Kempo. He has a big belly, but that means nothing. He is a 5th degree black belt who has been invited to his 6th degree test. Size is not a factor if you have talent in the martial arts (Except for some things like...

    Well, I think he might be 5th degree, but he's been invited to the 6th degree test. I don't know his last name, but I know his first name is Ben.

    Beggining Weapon Fighting

    My instructor is a Sixth Degree Black-Belt, but I don't know how long he's been teaching (But he owns our Dojo). He probably has been teaching weapons for as long as he has been teaching students.

    Beggining Weapon Fighting

    Listen to the other guy. He knows better. And I don't know where I said I don't train with USSD. "it appears like you are lying on many fronts". But really, I just wanted to learn some thing about the Bow-Staff.

    Beggining Weapon Fighting

    No need to bash me. I was just asking about the Bow-Staff, just some general stuff about it. To reply to you saying USSD isn't kempo, then why does Sensei always say things like "Kempo focuses on the hands"? I'm just excited, is that too hard to comprehend? And also, it just looks like you want...

    Beggining Weapon Fighting

    My post in the Kempo section isn't getting much attention, So I'll post it here: I learn the Martial Arts at USSD, and I am a Blue-Green belt. I'm fairly young, but that doesn't mean I can't love Kempo! But, I have a question. I saw a girl at my same rank, and she had a bow-staff. I asked...

I saw a girl at my same rank, and she had a bow-staff. I asked Sensei if I could learn weapons, and he said, "If you do all your you Pinans (1, 2, 3)...

    They did give me the material. I know them, but I forget which is which, and I forget some parts of them. I was going to study them about 5 days ago, but then I couldn't find the book. I've been searching the internet for a while to find my stuff, and this seemed the place to look...

    Yeah, I didn't get one though. We've been looking for it for weeks, but we think the teacher never gave it to us. I hope I can postpone the test or something, cause I don't know 3 DMs...
