Krav Maga. Yeah, that's what I taught. I trained in several other forms, but Krav is my first love in fighting. I can't explain how much I miss the rush I got from stepping into the ring. I'd do just about anything to be able to fight again.

Yup. I used to teach a fight class on Thursdays where we all fought three in, one out. I miss it. But the last time I fought I took a punch to the face and was white blinded for a couple seconds. I still finished the round, but I had to stop after that.

Pointy? Did you watch it???? That drill at the end was my FAVORITE!!!! Circle of Death!!!!!

We trained hard. The point of the circle of death is to put you at a disadvantage and force you to fight on. When I tested as a student, we had a four hour "workshops" (read tire you out to the point that you want to quit), then the test because anyone can win at the top of their game. But when you're tired and frustrated and pissed, that's when you really test your limits.

When I tested as an instructor we went to LA for seven days. They ran us for six. Eight to ten hours a day we drilled. Every day I went back to the hotel and fell into bed. In the morning, I taped up my feet because all the skin was gone. During phase two I taped up my hands because I'd broken my thumb and I needed to be able to make a fist. The last day, Friday, we tested. They screamed, ranted, and we tested. I broke bones, lost conciousness, dislocated joints, and had the best time of my life.

I walked out of each of those three weeks at least seven pounds lighter, covered with bruises, exhausted, and prouder than I've ever been. By the time I made it the my final phase, I was the only woman left out of seven. I have never been more disappointed than I was when I found out I would never make black belt in Krav Maga.

And yeah..... I'm probably a little nuts.

Mr. Miyagi taught me.

I joke about it but it really was a little old Japanese dude that taught me and a hand full of other folks how to defend ourselves. A friend of a friend introduced me to him and when I went to shake his hand all I remember is winding up on my ass. He trained folks in his back yard for little to nothing because he said he didn't want to become complacent and it was "cheaper than a gym membership." I'll never forget the time I spent in his backyard on and off for three years until he became too sick to do it anymore. He passed on when I was 22 and I never pursued any further training elsewhere because a lot of the things he taught you just can't learn in a belt factory dojo.

That being said, I haven't laid a hand on a person in anger since I was 17.

Feel good that the doc threw in the 100% if you stop training. I didn't get that. I got the "you should feel lucky you're as high functioning as you are."

Prove, they aren't all belt factories. There are some good ones out there, but you have to look hard.

i trained krav maga some times with a friend who works in a german swat team but i didn´t like it very much.
when i was 6 i started with judo and taekwondo. when i was 12 i switched over to wing tsung and escrima. two years ago i stopped the training because i have problems with my knees.

i train in brazilian jiu jitsu and i know what you are all are talking about with belt factories, my trainer doesnt do the belt testing thing, he goes by himself rolling with us and from input from his black belts. he just presents the student with the promotion in front of the class when he feels the student has earnd it.

Problem was, I'd trained too long in pure self defense and the moment I felt threatened, I did what I had to do out of instinct and training. I didn't draw blood, so no foul.

Self defense is sooo much more useful than learning how to fight IMO.

the best way of self defense is not to get hit. IMO that means to hit the attacker before he hits you.

Actually the first line of defense is being aware of your surroundings at all times. You're going to get struck, stabbed, or shot if you end up in the wrong situation. Getting out alive is winning.

Completely agree with being aware of surroundings but I think avoiding the situation all together is winning. By that I don't mean hiding in a sheltered fortress but being prepared to end the situation as quickly and painlessly as possible. I'm not violent by nature but I will do what's necessary when I feel threatened or feel like those I care about are threatened.

my instructor is a deputy sheriff so we dont do the all jiu jitsu no striking stuff. so we train in thai boxing and incorperate it with the grappling to make us more well rounded and we also do the weapon defences with someone coming at you with a fake knife or gun

I love Muay Thai. Great fun. I also trained traditional grappling with one of our instructors. He was freaking fast and you never saw him drop when he went for a takedown. Used to drive me nuts. I finally got the hang of sprawling, but took me a bit.

my brother is like that he has a notebook of take downs and its imposible to get him down if he dosnt want to go. we have a lot of wreslers that are good training partners because of ther ground control and takedown skills.

I was told by doc not to train due to taking so many hits that i have a natural eye nystagmus (sp?)but the hell with that i'm like Balboa "YO i still wanna fight". by the way our system was TKD but on Tue and Sat mornings we have all styles come by and we work out together. the three most vicious styles are Muay thai,
Krav,and BJJ of course these are the main styles that come and fight with us

Oh, I still want to fight, but there's nothing like a doctor telling you "you're going to die if you keep getting hit in the head" to stop you cold. I have dead areas all over my brain so I had no choice if I wanted to continue living.

And we taught biting in class. Bite, tear, spit, go back for more.

Tiny just ribbing ya about the biting thats what we used to teach in womens self defense classes, Any thing goes biting, clawing even using fingernails to rip off ears off if applicable(laugh but it was used downtown Nashville a couple years back and they caught the guy when he arrived later at the hospital). And I feel for ya Tiny because it does get in your blood and to sit and watch others do it has got to be killing you.
