I trained 10 yrs in Ish-in-Ryu Karate when i was younger. Went through CCIC with the USMC and have been training the last 8 months in Machado BJJ and Kung Foo San Soo. I do it more for the exercise, experience and fun than to compete. Would love to compete once before i hit forty just to see how i fare but doubt that would happen. it has all come in handy in a couple scrapes at bars and shit.
