kind of a stab in the dark, but anyone here do any fighting? boxing, wrestling, muay thai, bjj, submission wrestling, etc.

i have done mma for the past 4 years--focusing mostly on brazilian jiu-jitsu. before that i was doing jkd, seido karate, wing chun, tkd, etc. also did some boxing at a pro-gym in providence, ri.

anyways, interested to see if anyone on here trains.

We had to be at least 18 years old to earn a black belt, they insisted on technique and maturity..

I have been boxing since I was a kid. Alot of my friends are Marines and we like to kick the shit out of each other; you have to learn to take care of yourself.

My dad won golden gloves tournaments in CA in the 70's twice and was into it his whole life. He started out working on oil rigs in S. America (I shit you not) and would fight for cash when he was there; he got me into it.

Speaking of fighting, I want to start taking some Krav Maga classes.

I also did some boxing as a kid/teenager. I went back last year to few gyms to see if I still have it. I didn't get my ass beat but I just have no time for full out training but damn it did feel good to put the gloves on.

A year of kickboxing, a year of boxing, and six months of MMA/Sambo. The latter was definitely the most fun.

i ran the gamut when i was younger (judo, tae kwon do, karate)

but i have grown weak and inflexible

all i do nowadays is work the heavy bag in my parents' basement when im there and grapple with a group of friends who teach me secondhand bjj and wrestling

so my current skills are limited to hitting stationery objects real hard and pwning nubs who dont know how to fight on the ground :(

but its gotten me by while drunk i guess

Kickboxing when I was younger, had about 18 bouts. Held my own but had trouble making weight so I usually was in there with guys that were much bigger than me. I have a deviated septum and some pretty nasty scar tissue on my mug as well as a fairly split lip that looks worse and worse as I get older. Mommas don't let your babies be kickboxers. I still have pretty good hands but I can't kick above my waist anymore.

You asked me a couple weeks ago or a month ago, if my name stood for Brazilian Top Team.

No, but the only great fighters on that team (IMO) are the Nogueira brothers and Ricardo Arona.

wing chun was a waste of time and unfortunately is now a "classical mess" as bruce lee put it. trapping just doesn't happen, man. you will never, ever see trapping in a real fight. chi-sao, lop-sao, hubud, energy drills, are all wastes of time. luckily, i didn't spend a lot of time training wing chun. spend 5 minutes with a good greco-roman wrestler, muay thai fighter or boxer to know that trapping is useless.
