    There is more to life than just koryu or whatever your poison may be.....

    The man makes the ryu....not the other way around.

    Hi Mark,

    I forgot about the good ol YMCA. But, you are right in terms of not coming up with anything. I checked all of those websites as well and didn't see anything. The Army used to have a...

    Thank you for the replies. Yes, anything in Atlanta or near Columbia is a bit too far for me. Atlanta is about 2 hours west of Augusta and being in the Army doesn't allow me the...

    Karate in Augusta, GA?

    Hello all,

    The Army has bestowed the honor of living in Augusta, Georgia upon me and my family, and now I must find a place to train. I used to practice Shobayashi Shorin-ryu long ago, and would...

    I don't know much about Goshin-ryu jujutsu or Aikijujutsu, however, perhaps you should coordinate with the people you already train with and any "parent" organizations they belong to in Japan. Find...

    Well, I just relay what I'm taught by people who are in the know, FWIW. For the most part, all the Okinawan kobudo I saw (Shobayashi Shorin-ryu) used a grip dividing it into thirds, there must be a...

    Aloha Mr. Stone,

    I agree with the "train how you fight" quote, that's why I wonder about doing combatives in only BDUs and not in full "battle rattle." Then again, like you said M.I. may not get...

    Aloha,

    I didn't read any of the posts prior to mine, so forgive me if this is redundant.

    I just completed basic training at Ft. Sill. The Army's hand-to-hand combatives program is a joke. We...

    Well, Zen isn't exactly non-existant in Koryu arts. Some koryu arts were more influenced by it than others, however, this all depends on the founding dates of said ryuha. The older they...
