Hello, my name is Byron and I'm from Maryland. I came to this forum after watching all of the streetfightsecrets vids on youtube. I'm 21 and while I've had only minimal training in any form of martial arts I was impressed with how relatable Richard's vlogs and clips are and I plan to get the DVDs soon. I also enjoy the NLP approach to confrontation that is demonstrated, though it is a new concept for me.

Hi I'm from Birmingham England. I started off practicing traditional martial arts and soon found out that it all goes to pot in the street and they are generally not that effective. So then I started boxing which was much more effective but still very limited when it comes to street fighting. Even MMA has limitations in streetfights. For this reason I'm looking more into specific self-defense training which teaches you about the things that aren't covered in regular fighting classes but which are crucial in streetfights i.e. being street smart and knowing how to deal and react to a real conflict situation.

Hi all,

my names Ade and I'm from Essex, UK.

I have been into martial arts on and off since early 70's. I have trained Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Ninjutsu, Wing Chun, JKD, Escrima for varying periods (some only a short period).

I don't belong to any organisations or clubs at present an I work till 10pm.

I am busy trying to loose a few pounds, as with old age (?) easy to put on harder to get off.
I will put my present routine here, then see what comments I get:

I have my own small shed/gym.
Each circuit exercise is for 20 reps (both sides if reqd) total of 3 circuits.

Leg ext
medicine ball squats
Machine bench press
palm strikes to bag (fast)
Bent over d/b rows
weighted punches
d/b shoulder press
b/b curl
hammer curl
triceps pushdowns
pushups
knee raises.

After 3 circuits I go onto other striking traing etc.

Any comments? I have left out one aditional detail along with my age. I will disclose that later if there are any comments

Ade
Very Happy

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is James, I am 29 and from Brighton. I have recently had my interest in self-defence renewed after being involved in continual confrontations relating to alcohol sales (refusing kids and drunks).

A few weeks ago, I bought a "Close Combat Training" course from the states which I am thoroughly enjoying. And today I just purchased the SAS fight secrets (featuring Bob spour) 3 DVD set from ebay which looks pretty full on.

I used to do Karate and attended a boxing class for a year or so, but have always looked for what really worked (as the Karate I learned didn't hold water).

So, this is me. I am looking forward to getting to know you all and learn more and hopefully give something back one day.

Cheers for now.

James

Never really introduced myself and I wouldn't want to be impolite. Not much to tell about myself. Ex-Military, and I find Richie's and Bob's material interesting and down to earth as opposed to 95% of other RBSD instructors. As a civilian it's always good to make sure the mind and body don't get too rusty when it comes to aggressiveness training.

Hello,
My name is Sean and I'm interested in anything useful when it comes to training or martial arts and Rich's info certainly is that.

All the training I've done is in traditional martial arts (about ten years, even paying attention sometimes), so I'll be the one trying to stick up for it's usefulness! I've lived in China for a year and a half now and when work doesn't get in the way I like to practise Bajiquan and try and do zhan zhuang/qi gong every morning to wake up and get the juices flowing.

Hi,

My Name is Adrian, and was interested in martial arts after seeing a few good fight movies. I was disappointed however, when I found out that in Real Life, martial arts doesn't look like that and mostly, are not really made for streetfighting (like Kung-Fu etc.). That's how I discovered Jeet Kune do. I'm doing JKD since 1 Year now, it's not alot, but everyone has to start somewhere, right? Wink and I'm pretty happy with it, which is the main thing. Seems like I'm the only one until now here active which does JKD, so I feel honoured Very Happy

I stumbled upon Richie's site by chance over youtube, searching for some streetfighting Videos. I must say, your technics are a perfect addition to what I learn in JKD, so keep up the good work.

I'll try and be usefull and post information, experience and maybe even videos up on this board.

I look forwards to posting with all of you Smile
Cheers

Edit: Since I don't have Pie here, I eat Pizza instead tongue

hi

for people too lazy to look to the left, my name is Jim.

I'm 27 and i am a bit of a nomad but at the moment i hang my hat in Lincolnshire.

i've been training since i was 6 in anything and everything i could, which often changed due to all the moving around i did.
cross trainer by circumstance i suppose, but later on by choice.

was signed up to the other forum but didn't visit very often due to tasking other pursuits more seriously (read obsessively) for a while.

i own to dvd sets, no doubt, no fear and the SAS fighting business with bob spour.

thanks for having me cheers

Hi guys,
my names pete and im 23
im from rochdale - greater manchester, but i did live in brikenhead from the age of 16 - 19. Must say that living there opened my eyes to violence, and also made me grow up fast as i had no family or anyone like that there.
At the moment i don't do any training but i am lookin for somewhere to go and learn. which is hard as rochdale doesn't really have anywhere to train. it's only got an amature boxing gym.

Hey all!!!

Richie has been an absolute prince in dealing with the stupidity of US DVD players!!!

I live most of the time in the San Francisco Bay Area. The rest of the time I travel around the country with an insurance company adjusting claims.

As to my martial arts and street arts experience I started back up with my roommate who has two black belts, but doesn't teach much traditional martial arts unless it will work in the streets. Which works for me. I just want to know what will work if I run across a guy who is a jerk and needs to be put in his place! I don't think I am likely to have a guy get all "puffy" with me, and I am really no threat to him.

For fitness I currently do Crossfit (www.crossfit.com) in a 3 days on - 1 day off schedule. I am seeing some amazing results in my fitness as well in my street arts class with my roommate!

I have been a victim of sex crimes and I an older family friend who used to beat me up when we were kids, so my self confidence around taking care of myself isn't the best, but with Richie's DVD's, Derek's (my roommate) street arts class and the increased fitness I am feeling better about myself. But I really must get back to watching more or Richie's DVD's!

Richie, thanks again for all you do!!! You rock!!

Hi

I am 35 so probably at the older end of people here (with the grey hair to show for it!)

Always been into martial arts but probably more arty than martial until quite recently. I've done bits and pieces and spent a few years doing Systema, even went to Moscow to train a couple of times. Like a lot of people here it seems, I eventually saw the Bob Spour SAS clip on youtube and thought that was more the kind of training I wanted to be doing - practical and straight to the point.

I bought the Bob Spour DVDs, found a Krav Maga club and started training there. I have just bought the Psychology of Violence DVD and CDs along with the Solo Drills DVD and am looking forward to receiving them.

My name here "Traceur" is a term for someone who does parkour/freerunning. I have no illusions about my physical/psychological readiness for violence at the moment so running, jumping and climbing from a kicking would be my default strategy.

Cheers!

Hi,
My name is Tim , im 38 and have been into martial arts on and off since childhood , kinda got fed up with it when i realized it wasnt yielding the returns i expected , so i started delving into military combatives , Ive dabbled in TFT, Systema,Haganah, Scars while each one is mighty impressive , none of them won me over like Bob's SAS discs , Hard, fast ,brutal ,effective and easy to commit to muscle memory..Richie, I love the Supra States cd's , i put them on my Mp3 player and listen to them at work ..Keep up the good work bringing us great products full of knowledge....
Tim
