    Hi Folks,

    This is my first post and I am a newbie to the forum so please be gentle as I can't spell for toffee, unless we are training then come at me like you mean it!
    I have started training in Escrima and poor old Bob might be great for smacking with a rattan stick but he has no arms to hit back with.
    I live in South London in the United Kingdom and I am stuck for a training partner. I have a 1st Dan in Wado Ryu and also study Krav Maga and have been practising martial arts for twenty years.
    I was hoping to find someone on here who is in my area. I am studying under Guro Krishna Godhania and have been travelling up to learn from him but there is only so much I can practise on my own.
    So I am turning to you guys for the hope of some help. Let me know if you or anyone you may know who would be interested.

    Hope to hear from you guys and girls.

    Shard, welcome to MAP.

    I've also done some training under Krishna. He's a very skilled practitioner, so stick with it.

    I teach in Maidstone, Kent early on Sunday mornings of you can travel that far.

    Good luck finding a training partner in your area.

    Hi Shard,

    If you're able to make it to Vauxhall, i'll soon be teaching a Rapid Arnis class there on Wednesday evenings. Might be a good place to introduce yourself and look for keen individuals to train with. Bear in mind that the class will be mostly newbies though!

    Cool beans! Keep me posted. I am trying to get a hall to hire myself so I can start looking for like minded people and I'll teach somewhere between Krav and Karate whilst I learn the Kali. Not sure what I will use as an acronym hahahhaha but it won't be KKK thats for sure. I don't want to call it MMA but don't want to stick to just one style. I will probably stick to FMA once I feel I am proficient enough to walk the walk and talk the talk. For now I am definately a capable Karateka and my Krav is improving along with my Escrima.

    Hi Shard

    I teach Kali in Harrow, NW London every Weds evening. If you can travel that way of an evening let me know.
