I've taken some time off from the mat and now I'm back in a different art, but one that will work well.
I'm now in Brazillian Jiu jitsu. So far, so good.

We have some good fights coming up in the national arena of MMA, so I hope to start posting some more.

All contributions are welcomed.

I studied Tae Kwon Do from an Airforce sergeant who learned it in Korea and taught it to the military (no bowing, just disable your opponent as quickly as possible).  I also learned Tai Chi from the government.

Now I'm hearing a lot of good things about Krav Maga.  I know very little about it.  Can you enlighten me and other readers just what this Israeli style is all about?

I've only know two people, a couple, that worked in the PI business years ago, that took the art.

From my understanding, it's from the Israelis and it's fast and effective, using vital parts (throat, eyes, nose) to disable someone NOW. I don't think  it's much of a fighting style as much as it is to end the fight ASAP.

That's pretty much what I've heard, too.  I'd actually like to get my son and daughter to learn it.  I may be paranoid, but it's a hostile world out there.

I always think it's good stuff. And I would rather be prepared, and not use it, then.....

Been going about 3 times a week, now. We fall under the Drysdale system. Not sure how it all works out, but he's an MMA contender.

Reminds me a lot of HS wrestling.

Drysdale is now under Zenith bjj (Brazilian jiu jitsu).

Next weekend  I will be competing in a bjj Gi tourney, called NAGA in Franklin Tn.

I'll be entering as a white belt (beginner) in the Director's division (age 40-49), hopefully in the Middle weight class (170-179.9 lbs.)  Weigh ins can be done next Friday night, and I have about 6 lbs to cut.

Tonight there's a UFC match, and I hope to post the results soon afterwards.
