I've never had a professional or amatuer MMA fight, but I train no-gi BJJ whenever possible (I don't get to make it as often as I like during school) and boxing/Thai Boxing.

My experience: When I was a kid and before I knew better I did Karate and Tae Kwon Do. In college I took up judo and now BJJ. I've only competed in one tourney for BJJ, but I won my division and was awarded for the "most technical wrestler" of the tournament.

Catherine Imes who posts here goes to the same school as me.

I used to hang out with some of the maryland guys at nationals... I remember going out in Columbus with them, and getting into a fight with a bunch of locals- some lady came up and tried maceing everybody who was fighting....

I also remember a couple that where instructors, they actually drove up to NewYork to watch me do a shootboxing fight. The guy was into knives, and the girl, I think she was an eagle....

small world!

I train in Historic European martial art's, I know it sound's strange, so i'll explain a bit.

I study fight book's from 1300 to about 1700, and am one of a small group attempting to resurect our wester/European martial art's as they would have been used for self defense, dueling and on the battlefield, including and not limited too sword and buckler, hand and a half sword, two handed sword, combat wrestling, staff/pole weapon's and dagger with a base in wrestling.

Most people automaticly think Lord of the ring's, or Oly. style fencing, what i do is more like MMA with weapon's, a swordfight like any fight can go from striking to grappling very quickly.

Here is a link to one wrestling manuel written in 1539, this is one of many manuel's.

I am also a big fan of Mark Hatmaker i use alot of his submision wrestling for ground work.

Jeff

Jeff, do you have links to more of manuals like the one you posted ? I'm big fan of such great books.

And well yes, I studied Karate, Judo, Muay Thai and Escrima for some time. Also Wing Chun Kung Fu for 11 years.

Used to wrestle, now grapple/judo/bjj. I'm looking to improve my striking and get some mma experience in the near future.

I have a judo tournament on Saturday 18th. :uhoh:

Neil is a stud. I can vouch for that :-) I say that because for someone who wasn't doing BJJ for very long, he caught on very quickly and is very skilled.

I've been in one No-GI competition. It was some round robin thing (with only 2 other girls). We each won-lost a match. The concept of "points" was foreign to me...I was just going for TAPS. If I were younger (and didn't have to use my brain at work), I would love to do MMA. There are some talented women competing now.

I rarely get to grapple anymore (BJJ). I try to make the stand up classes, but even that has been difficult. Besides grappling, We do Kali, Boxing (kickboxing), Wing Chun, serrata, and other stick and knife work. Fun stuff....

There are quite a few other manual's if you go to the research and reading page on the ARMA site, you can find alot of sword manual's.
