Thanks man. Check out the podcast too. I got lots of cool martial arts interviews recently.

Checked out your blog Jarred, it looks pretty good.

I am on active duty right now. I'm stationed on Camp Pendleton.

If anyone would be interested, my name is Jaredd Wilson, and I run a martial arts podcast and blog called Martial Thoughts. You can get it through iTunes, Stitcher, or you can go to thinkingmartial.blogspot.com. Let me know what you think. I'd love to interview Mr. Brett McKay to talk about the manliness of martial arts.

Welcome, Eric. When was your USMC service?

Not a lot of traffic in this group, but I figure I'll introduce myself. Over the past few decades I have studied several different martial arts. Nothing too serious, mainly because I'm too cheap to pay for lessons when I can skip the formal belt stuff and find ways to train for free. In addition to being a 3rd Degree Black Belt in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP), I train and compete in BJJ, and until I got old and started pulling muscles I use to do a lot of mui thai.

I'm new to the group so I believe an introduction is in order.

My name is Simon and I have been studying Wado Ryu Karate Do for the past 25 years.  I study and teach at a club in Hampshire, UK.

I was thinking more along the lines of Super Heroes, Shane. Super Heroes.

The couple that kicks together, sticks together, Shane!

Regular Joe and Jason make excellent suggestions. I've trained extensively in Systema and can vouch for its effectiveness in personal combat, especially as relates to law enforcement, where your objective is primarily to subdue the assailant. If none of those recommended disciplines is available in your area, taekwondo probably is and that gives you an excellent foundation for martial arts training. Remember, martial arts is a lifetime pursuit. You're not going to learn all you need to know in a couple months.

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More

"Heh, on gaming nights hosted at my place I'm usually the one cooking dinner for everyone. I'll say it also helps when you ARE on your own ground and can lay it down if you need to."
