Initials: A.P.B.D. (like Dumbledore's full name except minus the Wulfric)
Age: 16
Country: well i was born in the PHL, but grew up in AUS. now back home.
Martial Art: I'm took up a little Fencing (Foil, for like 2 months, 8 sessions in total - therefore im still a novice), but im taking up Judothis coming 2nd semester for Physical Ed. Class (that's if i dont get the slot for table tennis, w/c is most likely) Currently taking up Karatedo.
Reason: I've always wanted to take up a martial art because I've never really had any formal training in any field up until 2 years ago. I think it's about time to discipline myself. And I really admire those people who excel purely because of their hard work.
Preferred Style: I am really fascinated w/ weaponry, maybe because I grew up immersed in computer/video games of swords, book, art, etc. But since i'm taking up Judo i've developed an interest in grappling martial arts.


that's quite about it.

Name:
A.J.

some Martial Arts I wish to study:
- Tachijutsu
- Aikido
- Shurikenjutsu
- Taido
-Taijutsu

When and Why I wanted to study Martial arts:
Ever since I saw my first martial art movie (which I believe was by the Shaw Brothers) when I was around 5. I then wanted to do martial arts. The reasons why changed over the years due to other influences and me growing up, but the reasons why at the moment is because I want to do it (for the most part) for fun.

Salutations fellow martial artists of all degrees of experience~

Name: "Daytona" Cejas
Age:20
Styles: Fencing, Kendo, Iaido, Tai-kwon do, Judo, Eskrima
Country: USA
State: Born in California, Resident of Washingston.
City: Currently reside in Wichita, Kansas

I'm a mixed martial artist at heart, but I'm more geared toward weapon-based styles such as staffs, sticks, and swords - I bear a rather bitter grudge to knives; I simply don't like them too much.
Although I lack any real formal training in any one particular style, majority of my experience is privately instructed from time to time, and the remaining skills learned are refined through self-ability, sparring, and plenty of bruces and cuts! My first art was the Korean classic, Tai-kwon do. I moved on after only recieving a yellow belt at a very young age to fencing and some forms of Eskrima, the Filipino art of stick and sword fighting. Out of curiousity I learned Judo past the yellow belt, and I curently employ to Kendo and my personal favorite, Iaido - mixed with my fencing to create my personal style of blade fighting.

For the media side of things, I tend to analyze martial arts in the way moves and situations present themselves. I personally believe it makes a difference to know what is real from what is questionably plasuable and unreal. As such, a person cannot lose 5 gallons of blood and still be able to pull a trick round-house kick, lol~

Name: Jersain

Age: 19

Country: Currently U.S.A. I lived in Spain, Brazil, and Mexico.

Grappling: 3 years

Wrestling: 4 years Placed 3rd in State wrestling U.S.A Record 97/06 Weight classes 152,160. Trained with Roye Oliver he was a all class world wrestler back in his time.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu 2 years. I'm currently a blue belt/2nd level at the moment. I'm training with Ryron Gracie his grandfather is the founder of Brazilian jiu-jitsu his name is Helio gracie. Even tho I'm a Blue belt I still (Roll) with black belts and beat them. It's because I been (Rolling) for a long time and my ground game is deadly.

Taekwondo: Yellow Kyu belt.

Hapkido: Black Belt - 1st Dan. Trained with Master Dan Paulson he was a student and a friend of Grandmaster Kwang Sik Myung, president and founder of The World Hapkido Federation.

Muay thai: 4th level fighter.

Tai chi: 2 months LOL

MMA: 3 years.

Okinawa Karate/Matsumura Seito/Karate Do: Brown Kyu belt.

Judo: 2 years, Blue belt.

Boxe: Since I was 10 years old.

Coaching: Fallbrook High School Wrestling 1 year, Vale Tudo Academy 1 year.

and I think that's about it idk.. I was also sponsor for 2 months by XFL X-extreme Fighting League. I had to let it go because I started college, and having a education should be your main priority but I'll get back into Sponsors after school, or if I take a semester off in the future, who knows.

From all of the fighting styles I trained and studied, I will prefer from all of them Brazilian jiu-jitsu or MMA these are the more sufficient styles now days. Karate, Taekwondo, Hapkido, Aikido, Tai chi, Kung fu etc not dissing or disrespecting any of those styles but seriously those fancy spinning kicks or if you think you have a death touch your a joke. I seen in my dojo 6th dan kung fu black belts, Karate,etc martial artists step into our dojo trying to show of their fancy kicks and their black belts, but when it's time to fight we set them up with our own students we usually let them face beginners like white belt 3rd levels, and after our students defeat them they leave sad and heart broken after all of those years of training and they were defeated by a merely white belt brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner haha I find it amazing. But if you train your stand up as good as your ground game you will become deadly in all aspects, it's recommendable and if you don't your pretty much screwed in a street fight especially if he's a ground fighter your chances of wining are very low. Everyone should be taught Stand up fighting and ground fighting in every dojo that's why I respect MMA so much.

Name: Bam Bam (Nickname from Instructors)

Age: 23

Country: U.S.A

Martial Arts: Escrima, Kali, Arnis (2 years in states, 1/2 year in Philippines). JKD (Jeet Kun Do 2 years). Grappling/Wrestling/Brazilian Jujitsu (4 years). Boxing (2 years and my first fighting style learned). Kickboxing (2years). Panantukan (Dirty Boxing or Filipino Boxing 2 1/2 years).

Reason I started Martial Arts: I hate to fight but I love to compete. Was a way to keep me out of trouble when I was a little kid. I don't compete anymore, but I still train when I have free time from work/school/gf. No longer enrolled in a School, but am thinking about going back to Philippines to continue with my Arnis/Panatukan arts.

Favorite Style: I don't have one. I happen to like everything, situations change and it's how you react that matters. You shouldn't limit yourselves with just one form or one technique. "Using no way as a way. Using no limitations as a limitation" and "Absorb what is useful, Disgard what is useless, and add what is essentially your own." Both quoted from Bruce Lee and have been etched into my train of thought from all of the instructors I have had.
