Hello

 I do not have anything of immediate importance to say, other than:

Hi! I am abiding by the community rules and posting within 48 hours!

1. What is your name/age/location?
K/19/Ohio

2. What forms do you do? Why did you choose that form or forms?
Capoeira, 3 years. My mom used to live in Brazil.
Northern Shaolin style kung fu, 6 months. My university has a nice group and they gave me a root beer float. Also I wanted to try something more straightforward than Capoeira.

3. Do you have a signiture move?
I believe style shouldn't be that obvious.

4. What Dojo?
I practice Capoeira in a park and in someone's living room. My kung fu group is technically an offshoot/franchise of Wing Lam, though.

5. Have any Belts? Do you compete?
I never got batizado'd so no belt. And we don't rank by belt where I do kung fu, just by levels.

6. Scale of 1-10 how passionate are you about fighting and why? Is it your life? Is it your path? Why are you here?
8? Other than knitting it's all I want to do. I am here because it seemed relevant and I need somewhere to talk about kicking people in the head.

7. Looking For a Fight?
No, thank you.

A question on training.

Question, if I go to the dojo, do Aiki-Jujuistu for an hour and half and then drive the 15-20 minutes it takes to get back home and work out on the weights would that be a bad thing? Would I be starting my body up, slowing it down only to start it back up shortly thereafter and thus making a myself likely to blow something out?

Champions of Champions Elite - Muay Thai

I'll be totally honest with everyone.

I work for a show called Champions of Champions Elite. It airs on G4TV. My job is basically to go around trolling message boards to get people to go to the site, or to watch the show. I'm getting kinda bored of the ol' bait and switch routine so i thought I'd tell the truth for once. Seriously, you try signing up to several hundred forums a week and see how it feels.

Is anyone here interested in Muay Thai? The show is basically just that. A bunch of guys and women wailing on each other using this particular martial art. The official site also has a contest that looks for the world's best gamer or something.

So, if you wanna check it out, go ahead. If not, ignore me, or ban me, or whatever.

If you do like it, I'd like to hear why. What do you think about Muay Thai? About the show? About our site? I'm genuinely interested in your opinion. For real. No lie.

Gloves.

What is a decent price to pay for some MMA gloves? I have some gloves I used for sparing in ninjistu class years ago but apparently there is too much give in them. My instructor tells me he sells them for $65. Too high or just right?
