    I didn't know you had Irish blood...reminds me of the lyrics of a Morrissey song...

    "Irish Blood, English Heart this I'm made of. There is no one on Earth I'm afraid of"

    Good song and good lyrics.

    Anyway, sure if you feel out of the loop I'm sure mo chara Tully can step in and translate ;-)

    That is such an Irish thing...not sure why being left-handed was such a bad thing but bet now you're ampidextrous! Smile

    btw...the correct spelling is ciotgach (I will admit, I had to look that up...lol)

    By the way Mick, if you were to refer me to a good JKD book, what would you recommend? A friend just gave me a copy of Bob Breen's 'Fighting'...am I on the right track to learning more about JKD with this book?

    Hey Jonny

    Yes mate, Irish blood, My family is from Athlone, most of my relatives were from around there, Irish blood it is mate. Very Happy

    Blimey jonny just noticed for someone who only been here like 2 days you are sure clocking up the posts.

    Hey jonny
    Bobs book is a great starting point,
    From a pure Jkd perspective Kevin Seamans 'seeking the path of jeet kune do' is a great representation of jun fan/JKD
    As most people know myself and a couple of the other 'jkd' guys on this forum study more along the lines of what used to be called concepts so therefore my study of classical jkd is more as a scholar as opposed to viewing it as the be all end all of my training regime
    with that in mind i would say try either of Paul Vunaks books,Rick Fayes Panantukan book,Marc McFanns grappling and Bob Spour's Muay Thai.....not forgetting Fillipino martial arts by Guro Inosanto

    Hi Craig .. just to clarify for people reading, both my organisation and this forum have the SAME initials
    Me; Self-Defence Federation ... SDF
    here Self-Defence Forum also ... SDF

    I havent got any problems with that but maybe one or two people might get confused and think I am organising the Feb seminar, especially as I will be teaching on it

    just as clarification mate

    Hi Dave

    Thanks for that mate, that thought did cross our mind to begin with,
    hence we have put on the advertisements that it is the self defence forum that is organising it mate. but I see where you are coming from lol!

    We have let everyone know what it is about and it has been placed as such in the newsletters etc that have gone out, as part of the self defence forum.

    Thanks for that mate, always nice to check and make sure.
    Glad to have you on board mate, will be good to meet you and catch up.

    Ah, Athlone in the Midlands...that place has changed a lot over the years...then again, so has the rest of the country.

    Yeah, I have been busy posting a few things over the past couple of days...just good to be getting stuck in on the forum!

    I'd love to get over in Feb and hopefully will...I'll be in a better position to let you know after Christmas but it is high on my agenda as I'd love to catch up and train with you lads again...and with people I haven't train with before :-)

    Thanks Mick...I'll certainly chase up on those books. It's a system that I haven't really looked at before as it doesn't seem to be practised in Ireland...not in Dublin or the surrounding counties anyway. I'd love to have a closer look though so thanks for that...that gives me some direction now.
