Thanks!

Sidelined right now since i concussed myself in a car accident.

All those deadlifts prob prevented my neck from snapping!

I have been reading up on ways to bring up my conditioning and am thinking there are some nasty nasty compound movement circuits that will abolsutely kill me.

I am an orange belt with bars in Judo, I could have gone further but I didnt really enjoy Judo all that much, and didnt attend as many gradings as I should have. Still I trained with a good sensei and got a good grounding in Judo throws and ground fighting techniques.

I currently train Muay Thai with Jaruenmong (King's Cobra) in Newcastle. My trainer is Master Sean Dooney, who has achieved the Rank of Master, was a 2 time European MT champion in his weight class and is also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Wing Chun. He has also trained students to a very high level, one his students (who recently passed away in an unfortunate accident) was a 5 time UK champion in his weight class.

I have to disagree with Taekwondo being garbage. I have done it for 2 1/2 years. It just depends on what your looking for.

I have done a little martial arts training:

I trained in Australia under John Will, one of the dirty dozen (first 12 non Brazilians to earn a black belt in bjj)

2 years bjj
2 years shootfighting (combination of Boxing, Muay Thai, Silat etc)

I like many other people stopped due to work commitments. I have just started a new job for a software company that is part time so in the coming weeks I am looking at getting back into some MMA training.

I have been studying and reading health books for many years and am In the process of compiling a wellness and training manual.
