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.

Hi, my name is Shane. I have followed AOM religiously for about three years, I own both books that Brett and Kate have put out thus far, and I love the website! I am just now starting to join discussion groups however. My martial arts background: I took Aikido for four years and received my second belt, but currently I practice Krav Maga. I've been training in KM regularly (1-3 times a week, as often as I can) since January of this year great instructors. I look forward to discussing martial arts with all of you and gaining new insights!

Congrats on your 1st dan!

Anyone else planning on watching the Olympics Taekwondo tournaments?

Comment by Maurice X. on August 6, 2012 at 4:08pm

Hello. I am glad to find this group is here as I was just about to start one. I've been practicing Taekwondo as a youngster, stopped and then picked up again when during my sophomore year in college. I am in my third year and I will be getting my 1st dan in September. Pleased to meet you all.

Button up V-Fit / Athletic Fit / any suggestions for shorter/slimmer guy with a broader chest

Greetings all,Here's the deal. I am 5'7" and by no means a muscle-bound Adonis. However,my chest and arms are problematic for button up shirts.  I have a 31 inch waist and about a 37 inch chest.Case in point: I was trying to find a button up hiking shirt today at REI. The small on all the button up shirts were ok in length, a little baggy on the lower torso and way too tight on the upper torso. I am fine if I stand with my arms down, but once I cross my arms, extend my arms, or, god forbid, try…See More
