Obviously, there are a lot of accomplished martial artists around here. So, the question at hand is: What is your style and what is your weapon?

As for me: Taekwondo and G19

Style:
I've done a lot of styles, but I'm mostly TKD, Chung do kwan style. We're an old school dojo, that owrks hard, and is realistic in our training, so it's more like a combatives school than anything else. We still hold to some of the old traditions like kata, but focus is on realistic self defense and physical development. We have a lot of LEO's and prison guards who only want real stuff they can use at work. It's a lot of fun.

Weapon:
Like I teach my students, I'm the weapon, everything else is just tools. ;)
Favorite tools:
Glock 30, Taurus 85 Titanium, Benchmade folder.

GM-do.

The weapon is a Springfield Armory (customized) M1911A1 or HK P7 in Greg Kramer (SA) or Mitchell Rosen (HK) leather.

I carry some knives (Bud Nealy, Benchmade and Spyderco) as well.

I generally try to avoid trouble; it's safer, cleaner and a helluva lot less hassle that way.

If I am eXpecting trouble, I either stay home or I'll carry a rifle. :supergrin:

Style - Western boxing, Krav Maga, trying to learn some BJJ. Additional style points for situational awareness and command presence...

Weapon - Duty weapon is .40 S&W. Off-duty, it's a Kahr MK 9 mm or a S&W 1911PD .45, with a Mossberg combat shotgun not to far away...

Style: Primary style is Goju but I also train in Hapkido and TKD. Did a bunch of Aikido when in the military. Lots of practical self defense tactics as well.

Martial art weapons: Bo, Sai, Tonfa, knife, Chinese Broad sword, and some samurai sword. I've played with nunchaku but usually just beat myself with them. I also practice with some South Pacific traditional martial art weapons that resemble brass knuckles but are made of wood.

Other weapons: G23, Walther P99, Kimber, Ruger, 308 Mag, 300 Win, bunch of 22s.

I earned a shodan in kempo karate in 1984. Other than that, my style is basically just whatever I feel like working on when I hit the bags or the focus pads. Lots of knees and elbows too. More adrenaline punching than anything...

One thing I dropped in the 80s was kata. They are nice to watch, but I couldn't stand doing them anymore.:banana:

Main martial art is Jujustu and starting to work in some Systema. Main pistol is G23 and will supplement with PM40 when Dottie and her associates get it running right.

No. When I went through S.E.R.E. school they taught us LINES training and I would keep practicing it.

I have trained in Korean Moo Duk Kwan / Tang Soo Do primarily. I have also dabbled in Shotokan and Boxing.

As far as martial arts weapons are concerned, I prefer Bo, Boken and knives. I also enjoy practicing sword techniqes for training and excercise.

My current carry firearms are a G19 and a G26.

My Art: Shotokan Karate-Do and TKD Oh Do Kwan.

My Weapon: G19 and Custom AR-15.

The reason I carry a concealed weapon these days when strolling around town... because there's just no more honor! Remember the days when men settled things like men? :)

Interesting topic.

Currently, I am studying Nakamura Ryu Batto-do. You know, a Japanese Sword Art. Right now I am using a Bugei Crane for a cutter in class. I just started and love it!

Made it as far as A class in Production class in that All American "martial art", USPSA

As far as weapon? Make mine full auto, but it is hard to conceal the UZI. Seriously though, a Glock 23 for daily carry and a spyderco endura or delica, depending.

My "core arts": Kenpo, Hapkido, Tae Kwon Do with some Kali mixed in. I just started training in Krav Maga and have found that my Kenpo and Hapkido training translates well into Krav.

Carry weapons: G19, Nighthawk Talon 2, and/or S&W 360PD (back up), and always have my Emerson Karambit on me.

Previously have studied Goju-ryu and Shotokan-ryu karate, wing chun, aikido, judo, Goshin-ryu jujitsu, iaido kali, plus several LE/mil combatives systems since I started in LE.

The stuff I practice now (in addition to the popo-fu my department mandates) is mostly kali and jujitsu. I have held several instructors licenses for various schools.

I have more knives/guns than I can list/remember....the fundamentals amongst major categories of weapons (guns, knives, flexibles, improvised, impact, etc.) are the same regardless.

I still practice Shindo Muso Ryu iaido...not that practical but I enjoy it and the mental side of it has definite benefits. I do have several katana, so I suppose they could be pressed into effective service if need be.

1st Dan, Tae Kwon Do; however the older I get the lower my kicks seem to go. Nowadays, I don't see any reason to practice muck more than knee or groin level kicks (on a bag)--it would take me so long to warm up and stretch out for higher kicks that it doesn't seem practical anymore, at least for self defense.
I wish I had had more grappling training, but I just turned 50 and no longer harbor illusions of being a tough guy, so am now focusing on learning and practicing shooting and CCW with my Glock 26 and 19.

There's no reason a 50 year old couldn't be a formidable opponent. My personal opinion is that TKD won't get you there, but there are many that could. Look around. The answer is there if you look.

Firearms at home, but for everyday out and about in a non-RKBA place, folding pocketknife, cane, and pepper spray. And my dog.

I prefer "M.H.D", Meat Helmet Doo. It enables me to execute the traditional Navajo "Sheep grapple kick"....which is a defensive kick against rear antagonist!

I briefly studied TKD in the early years and more recently taken on Haganah. It doesn't seem to mesh well with our use of force policies though. I'm looking forward to a Russian Martial Arts seminar coming up that features Systema style. Does anyone have any input on this program?

Systema=BAD

Krav Maga=Better (I have some reservations but alot of people swear by it)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu=IMO the best, especially for LE.

BTW BJJ, Muay Thai and the ancient police martial art of Jo-Fu (Jump On you and ******* you Up).
Weaponry:
Mossberg M88 Shotty
SKS "Assault" rifle
Glock 22 (duty, still saving up for personal)

Maybe not all instructors are this divorced from reality, but then it isn't systema, it is something else using its name. A lot of Sambo instructor's say their stuff is Systema for the name value alone.

That guy is not Sambo. That is Mikhail Ryabko. He is Vladimir Vasiliev's teacher. Vladimir is the head of the Systema system which is the most prevelant in North America. The other main version is the Kadochnikov version of Systema. I have never worked with Ryabko, so I can't say anything personal about him. I have attended a weekend seminar by Vladimir Vasiliev and a number of smaller workshops and classes by some over Systema instructors, such as Martin Wheeler, Kwan Lee and Brad Scornovacco. My personal experience is that it is the real thing and is very effective, useful and brutal if done right. I have been teaching JuJutsu for over 20 years, so it's not like I'm just some gullible neophyte. I think sometimes what happens at these demonstrations is what we call "people being too good of an uke". Aside, from the martial arts portion, I do think Systema (as with many martial arts) may have a bit of a cultic type following.
