I'm a second degree black belt in judo with about 25 yrs. experience as a student of a former U.S. Olympic judo coach I've been told by my sensei that I may be promoted to 3rd degree in the spring. I am a certified coach, instructor and referee for judo, and currently serve as an assistant instructor at a club in NYC.

Many of my training partners have been national or international level competitors, including several Olympians (although my competition track record is nowhere near as impressive). I've also learned bits of karate and aikido over the years, but my main focus has been on judo.

^ That's really cool man, I loved doing judo as a kid and am thinking about getting back into it.

I did Hapkido and judo when I was a little one, then kind of fell out the maritial arts thing for a while to pursue other interests, and just be a kid really. Recently I've started learning some Boxing and Kickboxing and I'm looking into organizing a catch wrestling tournament or league here in my area. I'm one of those people who likes to read/watch and analyze things and pick them apart so on top of what I've learned from my formal training and doing a little bit of work casually with others who train or have an interest in combat sports I guess I just have an eye for learning and commenting on technique.

I'm still young(turning 20 this year) and I have a lot to learn but I think I pick up things quickly and I'll be glad to use my experience and little things that have helped me to aid others. Though don't expect much out of me on striking besides fundamentals and basic pointers anyone with formal training can tell you, I'm far from good at it.

I just recently enlisted in the navy and am hoping after my stint there to find a good solid school to work with and eventually become a grappling instructor.

Started BJJ training October 2006.
Limited wrestling training.
Limited muay thai training, mostly clinchwork.

I won't be giving any advice on the latter two and it'll probably be a while until I feel comfortable giving a lot of advice on the first one.

OK I started with Judo when I was 5 for a couple of years, then have trained on and off in various styles over the years, some in formal training others with friends who knew different styles my formal schools include Judo, Ninjitsu, Jujitsu, Kenpo, Tang soo do and Ishnryu, informal training includes Capoeria , Muay Thai, Boxing, Fencing. I do not claim to have mastered any of these and in some schools have been offered higher belts but I have refused to take them because it just did not feel right. I am at the point where I am capable of teaching the basics espicaly of grappling which has always been my strong point, but I am still willing to learn and am looking for a teacher.

I could have sworn I replied to this but I couldn't find my post when I went through. I've been giving out a lot of advice and I don't want people to think I'm unwilling to share my background.

My background is mostly mix and match because I've moved around a lot (thanks, U.S. Army) but as for official times studied at schools-

Kenpo Karate- 3 years
Wing Chun Kung Fu- 2 1/2 years
BJJ- 1 1/2 years
Enshin Do Karate- 8 months
Wrestling- Middle school through most of high school
MT- 1 1/2 Years

For the past year and a half I've been between one gym and another training MMA whenever I can. I've only recently (for the past 3 months) been able to truly dedicate a major portion my life toward it. I've been training with some pretty well known fighters and a lot of great up and coming talent in the UFC and other orgs.

Unofficially I can say that I've been training Kenpo Karate for about 6-7 years, BJJ for 3 1/2, and Wing Chun for 4. I've fought in several army boxing smokers and many regional school tournaments. Boxing wise I'm not that great, but I hit hard enough to impose my will and can take a decent punch. Kind of like Chris Leben in a sense haha. (Except much prettier!)

As for my medical experience I'm a certified EMT in the state of Arizona and I volunteer my time in the ER and at local fire stations while attempting to get hired as a fireman. (No dice at the time of writing this) In the future I hope to raise my certification to the full on Paramedic level, but for right now I'm just an EMT-B. I was also a combat lifesaver in the Army so I'm trained on stupid stuff like administering IV's and general combat effectiveness health related questions.

For general health and fitness tips I've been an athlete all of my life and I'm actually midway through obtaining my personal training certificate.

I've been in and out of Judo for 18 years. I received my black belt from (Olympic medalist) Jimmy Pedro. Curently I've been away from Judo for a few years after I moved across the state and I'm currently training in BJJ and Muay Thai.

I've trained in a lot of different martial arts as well here and there along the way.

Shotokan Karate (3 years)
Aikido (a few months)
Muay Thai (1 year)
Kick Boxing (about 5 years)
Kempo Karate (about 2 years)
Michael Macaris's Kung Fu (3 years)
BJJ (a little over a year, almost two but under different instructors, currently a blue belt)

I've learned a few things having been in martial arts all my life. One is that Karate is an awesome art for kids to begin with. It really helps your balance later on in all other martial arts. Another is that I really wish I had trained in wrestling back in high school. Judo is a really good base to have in BJJ because BJJ guys aren't used to being thrown and us Judo guys have insane posture power. And one final thing, some guys just cannot be submitted by the achilles crush lol!

I've got about 13 years in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, 10 years boxing and 8 years Muay Thai Kickboxing. I've been training and assistant training people for 6 years.

I have sports asthma so my challenge has always been finding different ways to work out to increase my lung capacity and my cardio.

Being old and broken my research is really paying off. I stopped training people a few months ago and began to train to fight again. I am also writing articles on mma fitness and general athletic performance: http://buildingbodies.ca/exercise/category/mma-training/

I am a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the Yamasaki Academy. I started training in November of 1998 and received by brown belt in November of 2006 from Mario and Fernando Yamasaki. I have competed in just about any type of BJJ and/or Submission Wrestling tournament you can name over the years and am the head instructor for the Yamasaki Academy Woodbridge, VA school.

Obviously my expertise lies in BJJ and Submission Grappling, but I assist with some of the MMA fighters we have as well and have cornered a couple of fights for our guys.

I've been to an oxygen bar before.

That probably doesn't qualify me for many topics.

But if anyone needs advice on paying for something you can freely get anywhere you are, I can probably help you out.
