Our sensei is nice as hell and teacher joint locks and groundfighting too!!!. I love knowing i will be learning a complete martial art.

Currently: 6th KYU (green belt)

We are called white tiger combined martial arts... a relatively new dojo that is getting larger. The style was branched off from a shotokan style (i think)

I'm a Shodan (1st dan) in Shukokai (way for all) A derivative of ****oryu, it concentrates on a rounded corriculum in that there is everything in there, there's a good balance between competition and traditional karate.
Tim (Hiroyuka), Kyoto, Japan
Working on Shodan in Wado-ryu karate, have studied muay thai for about 4 months now. currently working with sensei to incorporate more striking techniques, especially elbow and knees, to regime.
wado is a combo of a certain japanese jj, and shotokan karate. founded by master 10th dan ohtsuka, who trained under funakoshi, it spread through his numerous students to all over the world. it focuses a lot on jj's principles, the manipulation of ur opponent's body and then striking.
Hey guys, I'm Genki Dave from Vancouver, BC - CANADA
I have 2 dan in Go Ju Ryu from 15 years ago, stopped trainging for a LONG time and re-started in TRUE ****o Ryu (under Soke Kenzo Mabuni in Japan).
I am currently 6 kyu, but working my way back up fast due to the basics I still remember from years before.
Nice to meet you all!

Hello Fellow Fighters!
I am a student of KyoKushin, I am Black Belt I DAN.
My Love & Passion ---> KyoKushin,
My name is Mark, and I am from Vancouver, Canada.
I study Meibukan Goju Ryu at the CMAA in New Westminister.
I am a green belt.
The belts in my style go like this:
Green <- that's me
I guess that would make me 3rd kyu.
The kids have a few more belts to go though, but they generally go faster through each one. (I think it's so that they can have smaller, easier goals to meet)
Yeah, so that's me!
Nice to be here!
