    Post up your MA experience in here.

    7 or so years in various styles of Kung Fu, quite a few years ago.

    currently train in Progressive Tang Soo Do, almost 1 year (no resemblance to mcdojo tang soo do) and Relson Gracie Jiu Jitsu just over a month (under Phil Cardella).

    probably some type of kickboxing and some sort of jiujitsu (muay thai and bjj seem to be the general consensus)

    i really, REALLY need to lose weight first though... :hs:

    I think tai chi is an "internal" martial art. Some claim that it is bs, and some people swear by it. Personally I don't think it is what I am looking for.

    Very fluent. Very relaxing. Beautiful. Helps tie in points with other arts (or at least it helped me that way) Keeps the messy movements out of everything

    When I hear submission wrestling, I just think of bjj with no gi. Most grappling comes from the same root so the techniques will be more or less sound. It is just the training intensity that really matters. Watching the vid now.

    I think that the way erik does his moves, he does not value position before submission. Works for some people, but I would say it is a riskier way of grappling.

    9 years of tae kwon do but for the last 2 or 3 years they've opened up and incorporated jujitsu and muay thai

    would really like to take some muay thai after high school
