    Cool

    I have a Sam Brown belt in Shoot Yu To !

    Just having some fun.

    I have the utmost respect for the discipline that it takes to gain the advanced degrees in the martial arts.

    I have trained in martial arts and it is fun, a good work out but I learned much more from my training in dealing with a real street fight.

    I once had a co-worker who had trained in Jujutsu for over 10 years tell me he would not want to get in a fight with someone such as myself because he could not predict what I would do. He could predict what a trained fighter would do.

    If you are not fighting dirty. You are not winning.

    I was a student of Tang Soo Do way back in the 70's.

    I have spent some time doing a few Japanese arts, also some muay thai and some other stuff. Also the "state approved defensive tactics" that I had to do for one of my jobs.

    I've got a couple of brown belts in TKD, dabbled in a bunch of others, currently trying out different schools and styles since I'm 50 and out of shape and practice.

    I believe that everyone should have some basic hand to hand training in case you can't get to a gun or other weapon for whatever reason.

    We do this regularly in our style. Most of our black belts are CPL holders...

    3rd degree Tae Kwon Do, soon to be 4th degree. Training for more than 25 years, teach a class in the Metro Detroit area.

    Our style is eclectic, "mixed" martial arts before it was cool. Primarily stand-up, but with good grappling/street defense elements, including modern weapons (for adults).

    For fitness, I climb trees (just a demo climb of a piece of gear):

    For SD I carry a handgun and shoot a lot.

    I never really cared for Tang Soo Do since I just don't feel it is practical for me. But nothing wrong with anyone taking any traditional martial art as long as they are able to differentiate what is for sport and what is for self-defense.

    I trained in Shorin Ji Ryu for several years (1st deg), and dabbled in Shotokan (blue belt) and Wing Chun.

    I used to attend a real Krav Maga class (from an Israel-approved instructor) and that is the only "style" (aside from Shorin Ji Ryu) that I truly felt contributed to practical self-defense. Of course, I would never confuse it with an actual martial art.

    I've heard interesting things about the old Russian Systema, but I have no idea if one could even find classes, and if so, whether it would top Krav Maga for practical application.

    EDIT - I neglected to mention that I took Capoeira for a while, and it's a great conditioning martial art.

    Then it is street effective. Nothing wrong learning any style, traditional or eclectic, as long as you are keeping realistic for the street. Another thing, do you use fancy techniques? I like it to be simple, pragmatic, practical, and offensive-based.
