    I'm in Manila. I meant advertizing-wise. If a club is registered in the SEC, depending on its license, the club president will not have to pay any taxes. It also helps in putting the potential clients mind at ease as to whether he/she is joining a club-cult.

    And you are right to an extent. People in the provinves don't seem to care.

    Wado-Ryu, 3rd kyu (1st brown).

    I started out with wado-ryu karate at secondary school with what used to be known as the Sama Karate Club in Brighton, UK. I made it to 3rd kyu (1st brown) after four or five years, when I went to college and had to drop karate. I always intended on picking it up again, and started hunting for a good club when I moved to the Midlands to go to university. I tried a year of tae kwon-do, and then shotokan, both with clubs at the uni, but finally decided I wanted to continue with what I started out with. I eventually found the Warwickshire Wado-Ryu Sport Karate Association (check out wwska.co.uk), and it was like coming home. I started again with my white belt, but am now back to 3rd kyu, and loving every minute.

    Some time in the future I'd like to study other styles of karate (I'm hoping that seeing how wado-ryu is different will teach me a lot that I wouldn't necessarily learn otherwise) but there's no rush... in the meantime, I've just started aikido - chosen because it's completely different - and I'm hooked!

    I had my first wado-ryu class on Sunday. It was a 2 hours session and I was shattered after it finished .

    I look forward to my next lesson..................

    I'm Alex, and I recently started at Bridgend Kyokushinkai. That makes me a lowly white belt then :p I previously did Judo, but stopped when my brother broke his arm.

    Hi! My name is Candy and I am currently a blue belt in Isshinryu karate. I study at the North Winnipeg Isshinryu Karate Club. Started once when I was 18 and stayed with it for a couple of years and then took a looooooong break to get married and have a family. Now kids, hubby and I train all together. I dabble in JiuJitsu and Arnis and hope to study full MMA once my knee can handle closed guard again! :D
