Who here takes any formal martial arts. Personally I take Aikido and practice Iaido, Tang Soo do, and Muay Thai however I am interested in all martial arts especially those from Japan and Thailand.

Well... I've been doing Praying Mantis for last nine years- unfortunately section got closed so with 1st day of 2006 I started kendo. Not treating it deadly serious- it's just that working with computers I got to move from time to time or otherwise I'll have to use mirror to unzipp pants

Algren- excuse me for asking but... why do you have this "san" added ?

No reason in particular.

I wish we had more Japanese sword arts in the area I live. We don't even have a Kendo school, my Aikido Dojo occasionally does Iaido, but that's like once a month.

I think the question was a polite point...

In Japanese, it's considered rude (and a bit arrogant?) to use honorifics with your own name. I think that was the intended hint. Wink

I get the same response at times since my email has my Sensei title in it. Mine is so people know have some idea with whom they are speaking and are more likely to open the email

I've studied martial arts for a while, I started with Wado-Ryu Karate, then moved on to Shotokan, dabbled with Jeet Kune Do, Trained in Ju Jutsu, Muay Thai and various weapons arts.

I now find that I'm the teacher as well as the student Smile

I study MJER Iaido, and Seitei Iai under the Canadian Kendo Federation. I will also be starting TSKSR kenjutsu, a branch of Sugino Sensei this week. The dojo also teaches Ono-ha Itto Ryu, which I am going to look into as well. But I think for now, doing both Iai and 1 style of kenjutsu is enough to confuse me...lol.

I've dabbled in just about every empty hand art there is...boxing, wrestling, judo, jiu-jitsu, karate and muay thai.

I guess i've been doing MA for about 14 years or so now? Yikes...am I that old now? Crying or Very sad

I am sorry if my username has offended anyone. Embarassed Its just that someone called me that on some other forum and I guess it just stuck. If anyone has a major problem with my name I could always make a new profile.

Wow, you are so lucky to actually have some relevant Koryu. The only thing we have around here besides aikido is a bunch of "Taekwonkarate" Mcdojos.

Yeah, I am lucky. Though things have been a bit more difficult (well, a lot actually) since my sensei passed away last june. But, we do ok on our own, plus we get together with the instructors at the JCCC in Toronto to train with once a month or so.

I am eager to add the kenjutsu to my Iai though...I hope to fill in a few gaps that solo training in Iai has left me wondering about.

Somewhere around St. Paul, there's a naginata/kendo/iai place. Chikara Dojo, I think it's called.

Also, the Minnesota Sword Club building has Kendo people that run it in the evenings. I took one class there, but the 45 min. commute was too much for me.

Argh, everything is in the Cities. There was supposed to be an Aikido class up here at UMD but it was cancelled for some reason. Oh well...

Ah, MJER, a fin ryu to study. Did so my self for a few years, but I stopped to focus on other things and because of time constraints. Also had to good fortune to study a fiar amount of TRR, which was another good collection of memories. In the end it's a neverending journey no matter what level of certification. The many years I've spent studying has merely shown me that there's always more to learn.

"McDojos"...that's surprsingly not the first time I've heard of that phrase.

Laughing If that isn't the modern-sammyrai-est dojo name I've ever heard, I don't know what is.

Some Kendo, Kenjutsu, Naginatajutsu, Iaido and now Battodo but NOONE extensively and seriuously. It's
more a mean to understand the phisics of how the weapons act rather then to be ready for Zombie's attack or achieve enlightment.
My focus is on the weapon, not the art.
