What is your style and weapon?

Discussion in 'The Martial Arts Forum' started by ArmedDefense, Aug 28, 2006.

  1. 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.
     


  3. 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? :)

    I also recently started a gun based martial art called Ho Jitsu started by Jeff Hall.
    I carry Wilson Combat CQB.

    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.
