    I'm Chris, nidan in shotokan karate. 22 years still learning very open to other arts, having trained at other dojo's with different styles. Training in Doncaster, South Yorkshire at the moment, but did most of my training in London where I am originally from.
    Always looking for good clubs to visit to carry on learning.

    3 kyu
    Shorin-ryu Karate

    The Shorin ryu style focuses on staying fluid, so that you can get more power from your hips and legs. Also emphasis on combos.

    Is goju kai still having manament problems like it did?

    I know of clubs that swiched to goju ryu just because of that.

    Okinawan Shorin Ryu hybrid with aikido and arnis (eskrima for those non-Filipinos. Don't feel too bad :] ) Got a green there, left because the chief instructor died.

    Got into shotokan. Got a yellow. Left because I felt I was not improving.

    Entered a mixed martial arts school, that has a striking art base. Chief Instructor was nice enough to let me retain the green belt. Earned my first dan rank there. Remained at that rank because got not no money to pay for promotion.

    Been at it for 5+ years. Stopped counting after.

    I guess I'll delurk to sound off, because I haven't heard from any one studying Ryukyu Kempo.

    My school, http://www.indianama.com , is a Dillman school. That means we are all about pressure points. I like to call it "ancient chineese secret" karate (even though it is Okinawan). I have learned some amazing things.

    I am 4th kyu, purple belt in our dojo, which I can't stand, but I will hit brown in a couple months.

    My sensai teaches several weapons, and I have a good understanding of arnis, sai, and I am a nunchaku nut.

    I am also 37 and way out of shape, but working on it!

    Dirk Dagger I Love Kelly Hu


    It's Dirk here, also known as Dagger. Well, just look it up to the dictionary and you'll see that Dirk means "Dagger." And I thought that Dirk's such a sissy name.

    Anyway, I'm studying Shotokan Karate under the Japan Karate Association. I'm from Philippines, currently 1st kyu(brown), and I'm working my way to get the much coveted 1st Dan next year. I'll be opening a dojo soon so wish me luck!
