Manny from Milton Keynes
« on: September 04, 2012, 07:22:28 AM »
Hello everyone!

So... I'm Manny and I bought some Pro Jump Exo Pro's yesterday and am pumped to get 'em. Had one go on some previous to buying and got walking and that but nothing to special. But hope to pick it up fast and be bouncing like a pro!

A bit about me. So I'm a keen martial artist training mainly in K1 ( Kickboxing with knees basically ;) ) but I also train in others such as Krav Maga, BJJ and the list goes on and gets more boring for the people who don't really care! Also I work in London at an Investment Bank which means my train ticket is yearly so I can get up here for meets etc which I'm also fairly excited about.

So if your still reading thanks lol and I hope to get to know everyone soon!

Hi Manny

I can sometimes get out around the Covent Garden area for an hour at lunch times as I work up there

You are alway welcome to our home meets in either Staines or Hanworth

Hi Jason,

I would come down Covent but its just lugging everything on the train and tube at 5:15am would be a pain! aha

But I'm down for coming up Staines and Hanworth way for meets. Again not to bad for me to get there and would be good to be bocking with some other people!

Hey Manny!

  Welcome! (Not that I've been here that long.) What other martial arts do you do? I've just started my training to start teaching.

  Have fun!

Thanks Yeti.

So I train in mainly as I said K1 so this means I train both Kicboxing and Muay Thai a fair bit. Also train in KFM (Keysi Fighting Method), Krav Maga. Those two are more based around true self defence which is awesome! Ermm I've done Judo, MMA and BJJ in the past but haven't done those much recently! And I've messed around with Escrima a fair bit! Now that f**cking hurts if you get hit with one of those sticks!

So yes, a fair few but they are all awesome! And what will you be teaching?

That is a fair few! The style we do is called Kinjite Ryu, it was taught to me Sensei whilst he was learning in Japan as an add on to normal karate, not really as a style. He requested to teach it for years and approved it around 5-6 years ago and he's been developing it into a stand alone style. No real stances, no signs for what you are going to do, just aim for five seconds to have them on the floor not getting up. It's very good for more real situations where a spinning side kick isn't going to get you anywhere. He's the only one allowed to teach it bar a few of his students. A man a respect very much. He used to teach Wado and I think he said he is either Seventh or Eight dan in it (My memory isn't good!) and he holds 6 blackbelts in other styles. I've never going to learn everything from him!  :Claugh:

Sweet Yeti! I'll drop you a message if I am ever in the part of the country!

And aha SNuD! But it's alot harder to fight on bocks man :S . On the other hand though I suppose a good split kick to the face will knock em down! And one of these >>  :PJ101John: << and you could knock out two of them! I can see a new martial art forming.

F**k boxing... Lets get bocksing !  :Claugh:

Bockarate sounds pretty good too. Maybe we should develop separate styles and have ancient clan competitions.

I advise you to watch a film called Rising Phoenix. It's pretty good martial arts film AND has bocking fighting in it! They attach blades to the back of the springs. Haha! I'm pretty sure that's the one... but don't quote me...

I have a pair of Hoofies with screws sticking out of the bottom for ice (Call them Spikeys  :Claugh: )

Only trouble is if you kicked someone they would probably be stuck to the bottom of them  :Cbiggrin:

Definitely! You could always have spikeys and blades... with a gun attachment that fires as you walk.  :Claugh:
