Women's defense training? I've been meaning to take a class. Hopefully this summer I can take a defense class.

been doing Martial Arts for 20yrs now. Started with TKD and tried lots of other stuff like Isshinryu, something called iki jiu jitsu Or the like. Nothing fit til I saw Gracie jiu jitsu and loved the look. Took me til almost thirty to find an instructor locally. Took that for a bit. Love it but lost interest in the teacher, lol. I would just as soon like to teach as learn now.

Here is an announcement of a very fun event this summer. I'll set up a discussion with it too.

The annual summer Martial Arts Fest is set to happen in Knoxville, TN this August 1-2 (It's good to arrive Thursday or Friday before.)
Cost: FREEE!!!!!!!!!!! (Heck, that even includes lodging, 'cause Eric is so super cool that we crash at his house.)
The school address is:
10709 Kingston PikeKnoxville, TN 37922
The school number is (865) 809-3002
The contact person is Eric Turner

NOW! Just what is this Fest thingy?
Since 2001 a bunch of us who met online have been meeting each summer. We spend a weekend learning from one another, beating each other up, teaching what we know, shooting the bull, eating, becoming great friends with one another, and just having an absolute blast. It's a wide open format, so you can grab anyone for a sparring session, a quick lesson, whatever. Just to give you an idea of some of the nuttiness over the years, we have had:
-Sessions to teach about flexible weapons (think 'How to strangle a guy with his own T-shirt as just one example.)
-Demos of forms from lots of systems (including a demo of the bull whip)
-Weapons demos and weapons sparring
-Sparring (striking, grappling, mixed, you name it) lasting anywhere from 30" to over 30' non-stop
-Oh and bruises..... there's nothing like sitting down with two cold ones. One for your parched throat and one for your blue thigh!
So come on to Knoxville if you can at all make it. All you gotta do is get there (might want a few bucks in case we hit a restaurant, which we usually do.)
It's a total blast and you cannot beat the price. Oh yeah, and you'll meet great people you can make friends with.

Posting here in the front wall too. I'm TKD and Judo. Been doing MA since 1981.
Howdy all.

Mike,
If you're in Ottawa and looking for Shotokan, try the Ottawa JKA or Upper Canada Shotokan. They're the best two dojos in the city.

Studying since 1993, only 1st kyu but I never went for the black. Belts only hold up your pants. I've been all over Canada in the past 4 years jumping between dojos in shotokan and goju. I started as shito-ryu itosu-kai. I believe it's now under Genbukai. Btw I'm looking for a dojo in my new home of Ottawa.
