Any other capoeiristas here? Ive been training for about 2 years
None on here that i know of, but my cousin has been practicing for around 4 years now.... i'd hate to fight that boy, black belt taekwondo, and now 4 years of Capoeira as well
Couple of friends have done a bit but I haven't personally done any - with my dodgy hip I'd probably be off searching for my lost leg as it departed mid spin
I used to do capoeira back in highschool
Ha, there you go, someone on here DOES do it (well, did... )
ive always lifted weights but i quit playing guitar for 6 years and pretty much put all that effort into martial arts. just like alot of people i saw the first ufc and had to learn jits. i had to do judo for a year or so cause jits hadnt blown up yet. once it did i was a freakin maniac with that and boxing for about 5 years. i think its cool mma blew up but at the same time i wont wear tapout anymore cause it doesnt mean anything to me. way too trendy now. i bought my shirts at old shows from the tapout guys selling them out of a trailor. once i noticed all the guys that dont train wearing that brand i threw them all in the trash.
As well as the Krav Maga and Eskrima, I'm starting a bit Iaijutsu, as Grandmaster Sekiguchi Komei Adelaide Komei Juku is coming to my town to do a seminar on Katana and Naginata in July. Should be awesome, and it also should mean I'll have a Katana to post pics of in the not too distant future. (It will not, however, be sharp, as unfortunately I still need all my fingers for guitar playing... )
Now that is one I always wanted to try and never did - you will indeed have to keep us posted
Iaido would be incredible to learn. Id rather like a sharp Katana someday.
With my luck I'd end up with not only broken fingers, but missing a couple too
Nah, its one style I fancied having a go at but I just couldn't find a class near me when I was really keen. Doing some Kenjutsu would also make me quite happy so Its something I'll look into when (if) I get back on mah feet.
My job is leaving m with less money than i expected So my lessons are taking a back seat for now. Sad, but true.
I know exactly how you feel except no-one wants to employ me at all so I haven't had a disposable income for a couple of years. If I want martial arts I have to go down to the local pub at kicking-out time and provoke someone ;p
Just go down and start with the personal insults
"Your mother was a hamster, and your father smells of elderberries"
I am quite fortunate at the moment in that I have quite a steady income, and not all that much responsiblity or obligation with it, and the fact that there are quite a few different Martial Arts places reasonably near to my work or home, so I'm making sure I make the most of it whilst I have the opportunity...
Yeah it looks really interesting, I most certainly will keep you guys posted...
Just purchased the book 'Flashing Steel, 2nd edition: Mastering Eishin-Ryu Swordsmanship' by Masayuki Shimabukuro as well as a wide belt and wooden Katana so I can start practicing a bit to prepare for the Iaijutsu seminar with GM Sekiguchi who is coming here in July...
^ I have a boken from when i did Ninjutsu... i shall challenge you
I tried ninjutsu for like 3 months and it was pretty boring. They say they train for real life application but the shit that i trained with them was not very practical. Also there were a bunch of weird people just going to they could say they are a ninja
Fair enough. What i was doing was a modified version of "Bujinkan" as taught by Hatsumi Sensei. My sensei, Wayne Roy, learnt under him in the late 60's i believe, through to the 80's? Its not "ninjutsu" i dont think, not technically (you know, if you trace back the lineage and so forth ) But that's what he called it, and it was really really handy Good for real life application, fitness, and mental health too
I think I'm gonna start studying Kata in my spare time and do a little practicing on my own
