T/A's & Martial Arts
« on: August 02, 2018, 03:22:23 AM »
I have always been in love with the 2nd gen T/A's for as long as I can remember. I caught part of the S&TB movie on a TV when I was about 5 or 6 (maybe) and fell in love with the car right there on the spot. It just sings to me. I like all of them, any colour, model, no matter how much rust they have or how crappy the power plant is.

I also have a passion for Martial arts and more specifically Okinawan Karate. I have actively been training in it since 1994 and later on trained a little in Brazilian jujitsu (2 stripe blue belt) and muay thai (blue pratcha) just to highlight my Karate skills. I love karate and I really like the other two. Our Karate is a non tournament based Gojuryu focussing on a self defense point of view.

My Sensei lives in Okinawa, Japan and is really closely linked to the founding father of Gojuryu (Myagi Chojun Sensei). In fact the lineage goes...Myagi Chojun Sensei, Meitoku Yagi Sensei, then Shegatoshi Senaha Sensei (My sensei). The style has strong roots in the White crane kung fu style brought back from China.

So that leads me to my question:

Are there any other T/A loving martial artists out there like me?

A Camaro looks like it could kick your ass.
A Trans Am looks like it's coming over to do it

I participated in Karate when I was a teenager. Late 70's. We did Tai Kwon Do. I did it for about 3 years. My sensei was old school and was very disciplined. We also had to fight a lot. We would do a tournament at least once a month. I really enjoyed it and wished that I had kept up with it, but being a teenager I discovered more important things. Girls and rock n roll, LOL. My 6 yo grandson started a little more than a month ago and I get the biggest kick (pardon the pun) out of taking him and watching their class. Its at a rec. centre and there are all ages and levels in the class. Their sensei has the patience of a saint. Its kinda like watching someone herd kittens.

Here is a picture of me with my Sensei.

He has the Karate kid bandanna on that a group of kids got for him as a gift when they met him for the first time. He's pretty good at entertaining the kids and making them feel special!!
