Shalam! I am Dr. LTG Melchizedek A. Shabazz-El, M.I. Ma.DSc. D.Math. from North Bridgewater, Brockton, Mass. Ketsugo Ryu Jujitsuka Yodan, and Kodokan Judoka Rukudan. Osu!
Shaolin-Do is Shaolin Kung Fu. Our lineage stems from the original Shaolin temple, down through Indonesia and finally to Kentucky United States, where it branched out across the nation. Sorry it took me so long to get to this.
Any wushu people out there?
I'm not familiar with Shaolin-Do . . . what kind of kung-fu is it?
I'm currently a Blue belt in Kung Fu and I hope to test to Green soon. I found that my particular school actually has several branches all over the country. Shaolin-Do Kung Fu and Tai-Chi. Is anyone else a member? As for Rick, I think you and your youngest should practice on your own with what you know until you can return. I would have been a brown belt by now, but I took a four month hiatus and didn't practice as much as I should have. It took me nearly two months to get back to where I used to be in skill and strength.
Green belt brown stripe in what art or style, Rick?
I've taken several styles but only recently advanced to 'green belt-brown stripe', not that that means anything really. My youngest earned his green belt at age 5 but we had to drop out of karate but will pick it up again soon. He keeps asking me when we'll get back into it.
I haven't been on AoM for a long time, but I always liked this group. Taught my first class in stage fencing today and I loved the fun and energy of theatre. I continue to teach/practice Shotokan, too. What other arts do we have here?
I have been training in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu for over 10 years. Although, things in life have changed and I am no longer reasonably close to well qualified instructors. So, I drive to seminars when they happen in my state as schedule and finances permit. The great thing is I generally connect with my instructor at them and other good instructors at the seminars.
I trained at a dojo that taught Jui Jitsu, Karate, and weapons (several different arts mixed in there). One monthly price got you into as many or few classes as you wanted. I wasn't there to compete, but simply to learn how to take care of myself. Two nighs per week of karate, 3 of JJ, with one weapons night in there....I basically stayed sore and beat all the time from it all. But after about 5-6 months of that I feel that I could handle just about anything life would throw at me. Unfortunately I had to stop due to work and such, and I want to get back into it as soon as my work and finances will allow.
