Okay introduction time...
Well I live up in Canada and I'm not taking anything right now. It's been a while before I've taken anything but I've been thinking about getting into something, most likely it'll be some variety of MMA. For a few years I took Shaolin Kempo Karate. It was through Fred Villari studios and it was a generic mix of Kempo Karate and Five Animal Style Kung Fu, along with some Ju Jitsu thrown in to round it all out. I took that way back in my high school years and got to 3rd kyu brown belt. I really enjoyed the kung fu side of it the most and seemed to be more geared towards Crane techniques than anything, since I've always been more of a defensive martial artist, not to mention I'm pretty lax.
But anyways, I started all that when I was 14 but then my instructor moved on to persue other interests and I just didn't really like the new instructor we got. So I spent the next few years going from style to style trying to see if there was anything out there to catch my interest until I found "Systema". So I did that for a little bit, but unfortunately it was right around the time where I had to find a job, so I didn't have the time to persue my interest through Systema aka: Russian Martial Art.
I'd probably get back into it if there was an instructor closer to home, so I figure until then, my Systema days are over. So it's time to start looking for something else and I have my eye on a couple of options.
