    White Crane Silat, with previous training in Shotokan and Taekwondo. More for exercise purposes than anything else. I'm terrible at fighting. :rolleyes:

    I've been training Krav Maga for a while now... gotten up to about blue/brown belt equivalency (where I train, it's a 9 level system, not the usual 5). Still "train" in Tae Kwon Do--I teach it, and still do workouts in it for cardio/power, but the specific SD techniques in it are pretty worthless (jump spin crescent kick against a gun, go!).
    M65: Yeah, we have contract sparring here (grappling/MMA-style gloves, cup, boxing headgear, shin guards, shoes), but it's for the higher levels only, and there are two people other than myself that have the levels: one's got about 150 pounds and three inches on me, and the other fights amateur MMA bouts. I've gone a few rounds here and there, but no thanks for a every-class thing.

    I train in KRAV MAGA i enjoy the simplicity of it.

    and i like the fact that I go into my school Say hello the instructor then train for an hour + in real life situations. NO Kata no forms just realistic training..


    Dont take this as a shot at traditional arts that are Kata based, just what works for me.

    Nope. Not Inayan. There is no name for this thing I learned. The mix is reminiscent of Inayan and some other eclectic systems, I suppose. Unlike some systems that seek to blend the different arts, my teachers taught me the various arts as their own distinct arts. In later years, they would show me how the different arts could connect, interact or counter each other.

    I started wrestling when i was a kid and trained Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and kickbpxing shortly after, however for the past four years Ive been training and fighting in Mixed Martial Arts which is a combination of Western Boxing, Muay Thai,Brazilian Jits, and wreslting. I also have dabbled in filipino styles like escrima. Make no mistake if I can help it Ill never go to the ground in a fight but if i am tackled or knocked down and my attacker gets on top of me I will use Jiu-jitsu and my wrestling to get back up on my feet I'm what is called a sprawl n brawler I use my wrestling and BJJ background to keep the fight standing.

    I wrestled for 17 years through college. For the last year I've been training in judo under sensei Tom Crone ( 7th dan ). Just competed for the first time 2 weeks ago. I'm hooked!

    Where did you Wrestle? I wrestled college in Oklahoma.

    When I was in high school I beat national judo champion Tony Powell in a judo tournament in Cincinatti Ohio. I had to go against him three times in the same tournament. They were using the repecharge (spelling) system of elimination. I got him with a choke the first match early in the tournament. At the end we were the only ones left and he won the second one on judges decision. We both had wazari and some kokas but were tied up. The last match I got him with ipon.

    I wrestled for Northwestern College. It's a small school in Minnesota. There were some terrific wrestlers there but they were not Division 1 caliber. 2 of the coaches in my conference were former Olympians ( Jim Hazewinkel and Ben Peterson ). I had the privilage of being the captain of our team my senior year when we won a national championship.

    Freestyle and Greco were more my forte. I won more than a dozen MN state championships, I was a 2-time national Greco champion and also was a national Freestyle champion.

    I've got to say though, if I had started judo when I started wrestling I don't know if I ever would have wrestled. Judo is a sport that I really enjoy ( even though I've only been at it for a year ). The hard part is unlearning some of the techniques that were engrained in me from so many years of wrestling. 2 weeks ago I competed in my first shiai, The Land O' Lakes Invitational. I ended up 3-1 with second place so I was pretty happy with the results considering it was my first ever.
