I take Isshin Ryu for many reasons. One, it's a good workout. More importantly, though I've always been pretty tough, I'm getting the training to learn how to control myself in a fight. Everything I've learned is all about practicality, not for show. Isshin Ryu was brought to the US by Marines stationed in Japan after World War II, and Grandmaster Shimabuku broke tradition by allowing non-Asians into his dojo. They brought it back here, keeping all the katas the same as the inventor of the style, but teaching some fighting techniques used by the military as well. My sensei is ex-Army, as well, having fought in Panama and Iraq.

I learn what do out of a fierce desire to be able to protect people that i care about should the time arise. Ideally I'll never have to, but I need to be able to do that. Protect myself and others, that is.

I'm also learning the sword, though most of it is an art form. Much of it includes Aikijitsu, however, and has a very practical use for dealing with weapons in general. When you deal with swords, knives are a bit less threatening. I've learned several knife fighting techniques and barehand vs. knife techniques as well, though... like I said, Aikijitsu is a major part of swordsmanship. Right now I'm a brown belt in sword and an orange belt in Isshin Ryu.

Oh I know that..... Spar is one thing. Life and death is a whole new ballgame. My job(s) require me to handle firearms and I love it. Don't get me wrong I would never WANT to shoot someone but I know I could if I had to. If you don't mind, what kind of shotgun was it?
DarthMichael20

im not sure. my stepdad has guns and one day last year he took me to my aunt and uncles farm and i just fired it into the pond lol. i just had to try it and he wouldnt let me shoot at anything else. for all i know i coulda killed a fish in that pond :? i will never know..



I would have suggested something smaller to start out with. If you've never fired a shotgun before it can scare you. There is a way to do it too and not get hurt.

i dont think he has anything smaller. he has some rifles other than the shotguns. oh wait.. hes an armed security guard so he does have a smaller gun but he wouldnt have let me use that. the shotgun did kinda scare me though.. and it was very loud. now talking about this makes me want to learn..

All the martial arts in the world won't stop a bullet. Why not go "Dirty Harry" on him?
DarthMichael20

i only fired a gun once in my life.. it was a shotgun and it knocked me on my butt. so i'd have to be trained in this as well. but i would never shoot him.. i want to spar with him not kill him lol
