    I have been wanting to get out and train with Progressive Fighting Systems (Paul Vunak's style) but have others I would like to train with and limited cash.

    Who do you want to train with?

    I have a root style kempo and almost 20 years in but I wanted to get out and train with some of the cutting edge folks. Just seminars or long weekends or certifications. Never leaving my root system-

    I have always been drawn to Vunak as well as Burton Richardson, also curious about Tony Blauer and other similar folks.

    What about you?

    If there was ANY way, through use of some sci-fi translation ring and time-travel, it'd have to be as long as possible with Takamatsu Sensei.

    It's VERY doubtful that as a fifth kyu in a curriculum he didn't establish I'd be able to make productive use out of his time, but it'd be fantastic to meet and experience the real 'old school' training from the man himself!

    Geoff Thompson and Peter Consterdine, Tony Blauer, a nice gentleman by the name of Dikzzzzz who frequents this forum, Joko Ninomiya (Enshin).

    I hope to continue with jwt and Iain Abernethy, as well as my own Instructor and sensei.

    Moosey invariably, a moose Supporter

    People that I haven't trained with but would like to, off the top of my head, include Masao Kagawa, Yoshitama Muneo, Hirokazu Kanazawa, Dave Hazard - all shotokan. I'd happily train with anyone from any art though, and do whenever I get the chance.

    What was training with him like? I'm considering spending a week in training at his school at some point, used to love his articles in MAI.
  14. Mushroom

    Mushroom De-powered to come back better than before.

    On my list of celebs I would probably say :

    Cung Le, just to get his theory of managing/able to use his spin kicks with such effectiveness. A weakness that I have.

    I've already trained with Wanderlei Silva (1 session) and he was awesome, which brings me back to wanting to train with my first ever Vale Tudo coach : Gintas Baukaskas.

    The reason being is that he (Gintas) was one of the nicest guys you can ever meet - who could destroy you, yet do it with such respect. And that was the vibe I got off, Wand. Nicest dude in the World, calls everyone his friend. But had that little gleam in his eye that said "I can destroy you and you know it". With a big smile on his face.

    Oh and also dibs on Mark DeLagrotte, his Muay Thai would be sick!

    Though I don't do Aikido myself, I would like to train with Koyo as well.

    It'd be more interesting if we were to say who we would actually want to train with from MAP I think. The top four I can think of off the top of my head who I would be interested in training with from MAP would be Koyo, JWT, slipthejab, and Gary-Enshin (who I don't know if he posts here anymore or not).
