Martial Artists

I am a martial artist. I study Shotokan Karate at Way of Japan in Bakersfield. Are there any other martial artists here?


I have been training for 6 years and I am a ni-kyu (2nd) brown belt. I have a little over a year until my black belt test.

same thing. shotukan karate.
I actually think its not fair to name one or two people i trained under. it seems as if i have had at least 10 senseis that have trained me in a unique way.
but to narrow it down, i used to train under USKO, but a while back, the owner of my dojo (Sam Mason) moved away and joined Martial Arts International (MAI). so thats my history.

You should make time for it!
I never knew how much knowing a martial art form would shape who I am.
The greatest thing it taught me was self discipline.

Although I know what you mean. I would love to study different styles of fighting, mostly Brazilian Ju Jitsu, but no time.. or money..

BJJ is a key word now a days. Much cheaper to find a traditional Judo dojo... basically the same techniques for half the price. After you get good at Judo, then you can take BJJ to learn the dirty tricks you can use on the street.
