    I am on and off, started years ago doing Wado Ryu, then had to stop to 'concentrate on studies'!!

    Recently started Wing Chun, but that has been put on hold as well due to work commitments, but am aiming to start that up again soon.

    My wifes family are all into Martial Arts and the majority of them are Karate Instructors, so it would be rude not to be ;)

    I used to do Wado Ryu years and years ago and later on Aikido, but my daughter is 3rd Dan in Shotokan (KUGB) and was on the Kata and Kumite squads for a number of years. She's been a British champion a few times for Kata. She doesn't train much nowadays though because of work commitments.

    My wifes uncles are all Shotokan instuctors, I believe they were a part of TISKA??, but think they have all gone their own ways now and teach themselves.

    I would like to get into it again and defo want to get the little one into it as well, so may start up again fairly soon.

    Orange Belt in Ju Jitsu - seishin taka Ki Jutsu - 2 years

    Yellow Belt in Kickboxing - 1 year

    However don't do it anymore but i have to say Ju Jitsu is a far superior and deadly Martial Art

    I would love to carry on, but dont have the time anymore.
