Drummers/Martial Artists
 
Just wondering how many out there are involved in the martial arts as well as being keen drummers?

Re: Drummers/Martial Artists
 
No longer involved but I used to practise Ki-Aikido, Jiu-Jitsu and Kung Fu. Lots of fun but alas, a previous life.

I'm a Japanese jiujitsu black belt, a Brazilian jiujitsu purple belt, and golden gloves in kickboxing. Also started MMA about 5 years ago to chain it all together.

Been training for about 10 years now.

I wanted to study the martial arts. I also wanted to win the lottery, and own a mansion and a yacht, but those didn't happen either ;)

Not any more. He's currently curled in a ball on the floor, cowering and wimpering in the corner after my friend (who is far bigger and much better) slapped him to within an inch of his pathetic life......that'll teach him for boasting about an arse kicking he just can't deliver!!

No martial arts for me Bob. A little boxing and kickboxing (training and sparring, no fights) many years ago, but that's about it. You need the ninja master himself, forum member and fellow Aussie, Wy Yung....who seldom posts these days.

I don't see how it's 'geeky'. Just Jules. Being Jules. A purveyor of fine humour.

I know but manlove is always appropriate in these situations.

Maybe this is why I'm single?

A Yankee thing? Sorry, bro I am a Dodgers fan and I know Judo. A sailor trained me how to fight. It's like riding a bicycle, but I haven't fought since 1991. I've had a few guys stand up to me, but that's about all they do. They never throw down. I show no emotion. Cool as a cucumber. Poker face. But I'm too old now so I'd rather just be nice to people.

Don't worry Don Knots! I'm here to save the topic!

I wouldn't say im a martial artist, but i have studied a little and practice very little jeet kun do, i may stay in hong kong for a little while and if i do i'll probably try to get in a school and learn a little more. I don't really plan on being a competitor though

You know there zephyr, i'm a sailor! But the fighting style they taught us.. i don't find much use in it! haha

perhaps you were taught by a sailor from the old school navy. you know, the real navy?

The mordern navy is too soft. They don't want the image of a sailor to be a drunken bar fighter anymore, they want us to be cuddly wuddly fuzzy teddy bears that wear our uniforms! this whole being politically correct thing has turned the navy around with a complete 180..

I have periodically.

Started out in a Shotokan Karate club, then moved on to a university group doing Wing Chun and Escrima.

When I moved to Oslo I did some training with a group that just called it cross training, sort of following Bruce Lee's ideas. No belts or anything like that. Just training, going to different seminars together, learning from each other and sparring a lot. It just wasn't possible to combine it with playing and teaching. In a small town/country everything happens in the evening when most people are done working.

No need to study martial arts, boxing or MMA. Because when I've had 6 beers, coincidently enough, I become the baddest mamma jamma to ever have walked this earth.

Makes sense that you'd follow bruce lee's thing. Did you know that he started his martial arts in wing chun under master ip? He later (sort of rebelliously) decided to start his own martial arts form after master ip accused him of not having the right attitude to be told the "secrets" of wing chun. Which were probably just very in depth mantras hah

I did Muay Thai years ago. I want very badly to get back into Martial Arts. But i have tendonitis in both my wrists and threw out my back last summer somehow.

Id like to do either Aikido or Boxing mixed with some ground fighting. I just dont know if its possible.
