About a month ago, I got my yellow belt in Euchi-Ryu and got my yellow sash in Wing Chun a month after that. So yay!

Thanks Sensei. I've always been a big fan of diversity.

Congrats neoravencroft

How do you find training in 2 different styles at the same time to be?

Good question. I find it challenging. Each day I go to the training hall, I have to constantly remind myself that I'm doing this style and not the other. I find it fascinating that even though the styles are different, certain aspects are the same such as balance. To me, Wing Chun is known for it's speed whereas Uechi-Ryu is known for it's resistance. Eventually my goal is to try to seam the styles together with something that I can work with on a practical level, if that makes sense.

Double Congrats!!!!

Blending both together can work as every style is not confined to their curriculum. Every Martial Art is meant to grow and develop! I do that with my Karate and BJJ Training where I blend them together so i can have a more well rounded approach to training and self defense.

But I only incorporate the BJJ stuff when it is appropriate and vice versa.
