  • Martial Arts



    I'd love to connect with anyone training, teaching or coaching Martial arts, mma, SD and combat sport. We occupy a very particualr niche. Few disciplines require such a breadth of skills.

    I've got an appointment today to sign up for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Any talk on Martial Arts/MMA, I welcome with open arms. I want to learn as much on the subject as possible so I can excel.

      I took BJJ and MT for several years, I hope to get back into it someday...it's a lot of fun at the right club with the right people.

      Also took Baugua Kunf Fu/Qigong for 6 months, I still use some of the exercises to this day.

        Krav Maga and a little bit of boxing for me.


        Ok, Krav isn't really a martial art. It's just a whole lotta martial.

          I took BJJ a while and will get back into it as soon as I have some money to pay dues again. Can't recommend it enough. I think about it all the time even though I can't train right now due to being broke.

              I've done a couple of years of Muay Thai up to competition standard and looking to get back into it recently.

                I should have given more info! Apologies.


                I am a life long fitness and MA enthusiast. Have studied traditional Karate and Kung fu, BJJ and boxing. I work with Marcus Houston, Scotland's highest ranked Krav instructor and with Mark Davies founder of Tactical Edge.


                I am a kettlebell instructor, run Kettlebells Scotland and regualrly host workshops.


                My real focus is people my age, 40 + who want to re-invigorate their training. I think the 40's is make or break for most folk. You either knuckle down or lie down.


                Nice to meet you all.

                  Been doing Wing Tsun for 2 years now. Thinking of taking up Qi Gong to supplement it... anybody know much about it?

                    I've never heard of Wing Tsun or Qi Gong? Any good?

                      I've studied Shorin Ryu Karate for roughly ten years now. I'm not 40 or over, but I enjoy a good conversation about training.


                      Qi Gong is a moving meditation(of sorts). It's arguably the beginning of martial arts in Asia. Supposedly it started with Bodhiadharma when he went to study at the Shaolin Temple. He found the monks fat, lazy, and easy to fall asleep so he made up a physical fitness regiment for the monks and those are the foundations of Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Kung fu, and so on down the list of what influenced what. Qi Gong is similar to Tai chi where it's slow easy movement with a concentration on breathing and internal energy manipulation. The main difference in Qi Gong and Tai Chi is that Qi Gong isn't a martial art at it's core where Tai Chi is. Qi Gong is purely an energy art that works with your inner chi(energy) to promote vitality and health.

                          I'm a professional MMA fighter, BJJ Black Belt and kickboxer. I'm interested to hear from other athletes here on the site on how they implement a primal diet in relation to their training (meal timing, frequency and carbohydrate levels in relation to their training volume). I train a lot during the day and it's difficult to time meals around all the training.

                            I tried an introductory Krav Maga class last night. It was a lot of fun and struck me as being very primal. No dojo protocols, no belts, no kata, just learning to react spontaneously and viciously in order to survive.


                            My hand hurts from all the hammer punches.

                            You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

                              I took up Kali (Escrima/Arnis) at the beginning of this week. Very primal as well!

                              I grok, therefore I am.
