    Texas TKD Blackbelt Punching Back

    I have been doing BJJ for 1.5 hours!!! I love it!!! I have also been practicing TKD for 3 years.

    I train with some guys who workout with Travis Tooke.

    I am really excited to tell you what happened on my first day of class!!! There was a guy in class that has an anger problem. From what I understand, he had been slamming people for a couple of nights in a row. On this night, he also threw a punch at another guy. On this night, the instructor put him in some kind of uniform choke and did not let it go until he had advised him that his behavior was not going to be tolerated at this school. I LOVE DISCIPLEN!!!!!!! :cool:

    Well now I've started training its time to introduce myself...

    The name is Frodocious and I've just started BJJ. I live on the Wirral, which is a small peninsula just below Liverpool. I train BJJ (no-gi) for 1 hour once a week at a place in Birkenhead (I've currently done 2 classes and am hoping to have my 3rd this week, if the stinking cold I have at the moment lets up!). However, following on from my BJJ class I do a MMA class that also has some grappling techniques.

    I've done martial arts on and off for many years and studied a variety of styles including Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (my favourite style), Muay Thai, Capoeira and Iaido. My Bujinkan class isn't running at the moment so I thought I would try something new. I was lucky enough to find a BJJ class 5 minutes drive from my home that runs at a time that will let me do both BJJ and my Bujinkan class when it starts up again.

    Out of interest, where did you wrestle? Doesn't seem too easy to find in the UK, but I'd be interested in giving it a go some time.

    It's difficult, isn't it? I found this site though...
    It has a club list, but you have to save the .pdf before you can open it.

    Hi Guys,

    I posted here so I think I should introduce myself.

    I've been doing Bjj for about 5 years and am currently a Blue Belt in Bjj (Relson Gracie line) and Gaijin Ryu JJ a system derived from Bjj, Judo, wrestling, etc...

    I really like the system and think it's important part of an overall approach to martial arts training.

    I'm also a Hapkido instr. with over 25 years in the system.

    Nice to be here!
