I Just wanted to make an appearance as I've been lurking for far too long. I train in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu along with Judo and Brazilian Jiujitsu.

Thanks. I find these arts are a great complement to eachother and all contain elements of the other. Judo is a detailed study in upright grappling, along with a formidable newaza(groundwork). Brazilian Jiujitsu is an amazing form of groundwork with an extremely highly developed bottom position,aka guard, also of great benefit is Brazilian Jiujitsu's approach to entering the clinch. Finally, Bujinkan Budo Tai Jiujitsu ties these arts together, completing them with a sound study of weapons, striking, awesome ukemi, and add's elements to the grappling not found in the other arts. I have found these arts to form a solid self defense system for the average person.

Perhaps I never signed up as a member but just enjoyed visiting the forum(s)???? I have also been reading E-budo for many years, but have never signed up.

I alternate the training daily while also trying to find the common thread. Also, it keeps me from getting bored. So I guess I train about 1 or 2 hours per day. For example,one day maybe focusing on Judo nagewaza. The next day perhaps a certain aspect of Brazilian Jiujitsu that I need to work on. The follwing day maybe focus on something from the Bujinkan curriculum that will help or add to what I have already training, like maybe focus on adding weapons to my grappling, detailed ukemi, work on strikes, standing submissions, just whatever I feel would be fun to work on. I'm not trying to be a perfect Martial Artist, to me the most important part of training is to have fun and enjoy what I'm doing:)

I am training with various clubs and teachers. Again, training with a variety of people helps me to be well rounded. I always enjoy training with people from various back grounds. I am also fortunate that my teachers charge little and sometimes nothing at all, just as I never charge when sharing my knowledge with others, it's the TMA way!
