Personally I taken a few years of TKD and dabbled in boxing, Muay Thai, Kali and Kempo. I wrestled for a few years in H.S. and trained for a few months with Mark Lyons, a BJJ Black Belt under Rigan Machado. I've also dabbled in Judo.

Mostly I spend a lot of time researching various Martial Arts and testing techniques and theories with my buddies when ever they are crazy enough to roll. I should be getting into the groove of things soon, at least rolling with trained people on a regular basis.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I did some TKD as well as some boxing lessons from a close friend of mine and a couple pro boxers. One is Raphael Butler, who was a sparring partner with one of the Klitchko(I think I spelled it wrong)brothers who run the HW division in boxing. The other is Scotty Ball, a famous boxer who won upper midwest championships nationals. Heres Raphaels profile: Google Image Result for http://www.goossentutor.com/images/athelets/butler_bio.jpg

I had a little karate, a little tkd when I was younger. I've also recently trained in Muay Thai and had some boxing lessons. I wrestled for two years in highschool. I've also been in my share of fights and I feel like I have a good idea of what works. This summer I'm starting jiu jitsu and more Muay Thai/boxing at Curran Martial Arts. This is Jeff Curran's school. I don't know how many of you know him but he's been a pretty succesful fighter at 145 and he had a lightwieght bout against Matt Serra in the UFC.
