Comment by Stephen Young on April 25, 2009 at 2:15am
I'm Stephen, trained for 9 years in World Traditional Taekwondo (ATA/WTTU). I was wondering if there's anyone from the Montreal area who can suggest a good place to train in any martial art - I stopped going about a year ago, and as i'm sure you all have felt, it's not something that can just leave your life. I'd really like to try Kung Fu, I think, but would like even more to hear about some other people's experiences - it's the environment, the attitude and and not the name it's underneath that makes the difference

My name is Chris McCracken. I am commonly referred to as Krakkerz. Studying the Martial Arts is the major portion of my life and has been for a very long time. I won't get into details about my history. If you want to know, you'll do a Google search.

I'm looking forward to seeing some spirited (not mean spirited) discussions on developing ourselves and our students, as well as ensuring the arts stay a test of character and not something you "do", but something you "are"

hello group, i teach Tae Kwon Do, and recently started taking Ha Mun Do and Brazillian Ju Jitsu to become more well rounded.

I've been practicing and/or researching the "martial sciences" off and on for over 25 years now. Currently no students or school of my own, but I have my own personal fighting style, which I call Universal Dragon System. Currently working on my first ever self defense workshop that I'm teaching in May.

Gotta love dabbling in lots of stuff. Did some Karate as child, Aikido, Kung Fu, Capoeira, Escrima, Traditional Archery.

Of the ones I currently practice, Escrima. Would love to get back into Capoeira, but takes a bit more time as the limberness left me.

Hello there.

Spent most of my time in Brazilian jiujitsu, but recently have branched out into traditional Japanese jujutsu and Krav Maga.

While not always the case, it seems that I often find men who are interested in martial arts often have some interest in real manliness as well.

I was a fencer for four years in high school. I planned to continue it in college where they had a club, but I also joined Army ROTC, which included physical training (PT) three mornings per week, and they were always the morning after fencing practice - if you know anything about physical training this obviously is not a practical notion. After two years in ROTC I left (a discussion for another day), and I was in the best shape of my life. I realized that going back to fencing would keep me in shape, but a martial art would do that AND actually do something to keep me alive if TSHTF. Now I have been practicing Isshinryu Karate for the last 5 years and my Sensei is starting to talk about scheduling my brown belt test.

Greetings.

I have been working at, and occasionally teaching, one style/art/school or another for almost 30 years now, with my garage being my main training facility these days.

For the last few years I have been working on reconstructing and reviving the art of Bartitsu as a member of the Bartitsu Sociey (www.bartitsu.org) which I think has been mentioned here on AoM.

I like having just the Martial Artists group here at AoM. Good idea!

Props to my bros in the martial arts. *hand over fist, bow* I started out in karate, mixed martial arts, then got into kendo. Kendo has been my main thing for ten years or more, trying to keep up with the hand to hand, standup and grappling, on the side. Big fan of all arts and, of course, KUNG FU MOVIES!
