For me this includes fighting systems outside of traditional oriental martial arts.
In school I was a wrestler and trained with that for nine years. My dad was boxer and taught me boxing at a very young age. During this time I had a year of judo because the coach thought it would make us better wrestlers. After I got out of school I studied Jiujutsu and muay thai. I trained with a good friend of mine that went on to become a very successful UFC champion. From there I trained formally in a dojo for the next 4 years where I learned Tang Soo Do and Hapkido, I also picked up the sword for weapons training. I have studies Chin Na at some length.
After that and as I got older I begin looking into Chinese internal arts and took Tai Chi up to advanced classes and a year worth of combat application. I also studied Qigong and continue to do both today.
My most recent is a combat system, Krav Maga where I teach up to brown belt level.
For me it’s been a lifelong pursuit.
