Our theme this week continues with today's #tbt post...


So it's time to pair up in class. Unfortunately, you weren't fast enough to find a partner, and you get paired up with Bad Hygiene Guy. It does, it really really does. You already know who he or she is. That's why, in e...

THAT GUY: The Dilettante
So you have this new guy who shows up to train with your group. He's got some experience- a little bit of this martial art, a little bit of that martial art - and now he's trying yours. He spends much of his time working on your basics, but he's always ques...

An exploration of how being female – or socialised as feminine – might give us some secret advantages over our dojo brothers . . .
It's not always easy being a woman in a heavily male-dominated dojo. But today's article is not a feminist critique of the disadvantages women can face in martial arts training (although I've written about this elsewhere). It's more of an exploration of how being female - or socialised as feminine - might actually give us some advantages over our dojo brothers . . .

3 Reasons Filipino Martial Arts ROCK (for Women)
I go to a lot of seminars and I train with a lot of people, not just in Dallas-Fort Worth but all over Texas and the United States. It is not unusual for me to be the only woman in the room when I'm training.  Even at seminars, there may be only one or two ...

What style have you always wanted to learn/want to study right now but are unable to do so due to shortage of facilities/obscurity of the style or physical impairment?

For me it's Capoeira, I've loved the style since first picking up Tekken 3 back in '97 and have dabbled with online tutorials and books since then but never quite found what I was looking for. Still holding on to the dream of a Capoeistra setting up shop in my city.

THAT GUY: The Scaredy-Cat
So you're pairing up in class to learn a new technique - we'll call it a wrist lock. You stand still and allow your partner to figure out how to apply the lock.  He does a good job of putting you in the lock - nice and tight, lots of control, and painful - ...

Continuing on with the theme of "THAT GUY" you meet in the dojo for the week...

Have you met this one (or maybe you ARE this one...?)


So, you're in your martial arts class, and the instructor has given you a technique to practice. You pair up, and after one or two tries at the technique (because one or two attempts is plenty to judge the efficacy of a give...

I want to know what YOU think!


IT'S FACE-OFF FRIDAY! Today let's talk what we wear when we train. I'd like to exempt arts like Judo from this discussion, as their uniforms are quite necessary to avoid tearing up normal clothes. However, for the rest of us ...
