    How did you find this forum? I got bored at work one day and was looking at TheForce.net then went to the forums. I had known about the FanForce before I joined the AF, but nobody was on there in Kansas where I was before. I decided to check out my new home and came to the Colorado Springs board. From there I followed on up to the Denver board and just jumped in the middle of everything :D

    Oh yeah, I'm the 1st Chapter Rep for Colorado Springs. It probably would have been Sarah, but she left for college, so I got the honor :D

    I used to do Ninpo Taijutsu quite a bit. Looking to get back into it since I heard there is a Genbukan dojo somewhere around Castle Rock.

    I've also dabbled in Kendo, Judo, and Aikido. But I'm only ranked in Ninpo (Shodan Bujinkan school, 5 kyu Genbukan School)...but I'm out of practice. (and out of shape...lol)

    It is a very old Japanese style that actually has its roots in China and India, it is very fluid at times and can be very hard and fast too. It looks a lot like Aki-jujutsu, but I've heard from other martial artists that it is kind of chameleon art, because sometimes if I do my forms for them it looks like other arts.

    that's cool, I have a friend that did aiki-jujutsu in Tech School, some pretty cool stuff.

    I did American Ju-Jitsu (which was sort of a bastardization of brazilian jiu-jitsu and japanese ju-jitsu along with shotokan/kenpo and muay thai/boxing). which is why I just refer to it as Mixed Martial Arts since it's basically what most sportfights call it now and that's basically the stuff we did. We had a little bit of freestyle in there for the takedowns, but not much other than that. We had a judo guy come in and teach os some breakfalls and throws some too.

    We spent most of our time grappling and sparring (kickboxing-like sparring). It was a lot of fun.

    I also did Bushido Kempo (basically Gary Dill's little "hey, I founded a style!" version of kempo with some jeet kune do thrown in). It was cool and all, and we weren't all that traditional for a karate school in our area, but the teacher was kind of a douche and I got sick of forms and stuff...I just wanted to practice with drills and sparring and whatnot.

    Traditional styles are great, but I don't think they're for me for the most part. Maybe I'll change my mind if I find a good traditional school in the Springs when I get back, but for the most part, I enjoy the modern stuff more.
