@Kanisan co-incindentally I opened this post lookin to find people interested in the mixed martial arts. I see great prospects here in Nigeria and look forward to promoting mixed martial arts event, competition and eventually a league like the UFC in America, TKO in canada , and even EFC in South Africa.

Re: Martial Arts by UgoJ1: 8:33pm On Apr 29, 2012
Hello everyone. I just joined this forum and pleased to see that martial arts is not dying as I thought it was. I study and practice the traditional arts of Chung Do Kwan (which is one of the predecessors to Tae Kwon Do), Japanese Jujitsu laced with Judo. I have been training in martial arts in UK and our home land Nigeria. I am a member of the British chapter of the World Jujitsu Federation and the Fire-Flow Taekwondo Dojang. In a way I could be seen as a mixed-martial artist because I combine techniques from the variety of martial arts I have trained in. I live in Lagos and would be keen to practise and train willing students in the traditional arts which were and still are intended for self-preservation. Self-preservation encompasses actual combat as well as health and fitness. One needs to be grounded in the fundamentals of martial arts to actually understand what effective fighting entails and doing what is necessary to preserve one-self. Fighting is not just physical engagement but also mental. Martial Arts equips one to prepare for whatever fight the day presents you. So when one is physically and mentally sound, one can face the day and impose one's will on the circumstances of that immediate environment. I would love to instruct and impart my brand of traditional arts to any willing student or fellow martial artist at a reasonable price. There are those who would like private classes and I would be ready, able and willing to teach as much as required. One thing though, my brand of martial arts is not for sport, but for SELF-PRESERVATION!



I can be reached through my email, ugee21@hotmail.com and then numbers can be exchanged for proper conversation.

Taekwondo (blue belt) and Wu Shu Kwan (Chinese boxing). 'haven't practised for a while though. But I'm beginning to develop a keen interest in Isreali Krav Maga cos it's more practical.

Re: Martial Arts by BlackKenichi(m): 5:50pm On Sep 19, 2012
I've been practicing martial arts for 12 years now.
My main style Chinese Kung Fu (Hung Gar, Bajiquan, Wing Chun, Xing Yi (& Xingyiliuhequan), Taijiquan, Baguazhang, Choy Lay Fut, Shaolin Flood, Cannon and Luohan) which I combine with Okinawan Karate (Shotokhan, Shorin Ryu, Goju Ryu and Uechi Ryu), South East Asian Kickboxing (Muay Thai), Japanese Jujutsu/Judo, Indo Malay Silat (Harimau), Pro Wrestling and Folk Wrestling.
I'm also trying to find a place that teaches Kali/Arnis/Escrima to work on weapons.

You could call me a Mixed Martial Artist but I prefer the term Cross Trainer!

Hey, I'm a Capoeira Teacher with Group Cordao De Ouro, I've been training for 13 years. I currently teach a group in Edinburgh Scotland, www.cdoscotland.com.
My fiance is Nigerian, from Lagos, we're thinking of moving there in early 2014. I would like to start a group there in Lagos, if you're interested or you know someone who is, drop me a line.
The Cordao De Ouro style of Capoeira is a peaceful style, with an emphasis on interaction, fluidity and acrobatics.

I trained in traditional karate(full contact) for like one year intensively. We used to do iron body training, brick breaking and its amazing how ones body adapts to such pain eventually. Anyways i moved to canada and joined at my the karate dojo at my school but it was competition karate,so i quit. I hope to pick up again in the near future.

Re: Martial Arts by ceaz4r: 6:28pm On May 04, 2013
Kratos007:

trust me, though kicks are more powerful than punches as a rule, you have far more versatility with your hands, added to the fact that your hands are faster. there are literally hundreds of different hand striking combinations that can be used to a lethal effect. i only studied taekwondo because karate was'nt allowed in nuga games. besides, if you have the misfortune of fighting with 3 or 4 guys, would you rather kick than punch your way out of it? i and almost every other martial artist would prefer their feet firmly on the ground while dishing out holy hell with clenched fists grin grin grin


I guess you are being mistaken by the sports version of TaeKwonDo you see on NUGA games & so on. Take a trip to clubs where they train Full Contact Self-Defence TKD, trust me you will confess differently. If you think TKD has no deadly close-in punches, you might be signing a death warrant. A word of advice.
Re: Martial Arts by decode: 9:38pm On Jul 29, 2013
So on point. TKD, way of the HAND and feet.
