Hi from the uk

#1 Postby veggiesasquatch » Mon Oct 17, 2011 6:35 pm

Hi all,

Quick intro. I've been vegetarian now coming up two years & found the transition easy.

I used to be over weight at 93kg & 5 ft 10". I dropped a lot of weight in 5-6 months (65kg at my slightest) through running, high reps & keysi fighting method.

I've now dropped all cardio besides walking to from work which is over an hr each day & soley working on bulking. Have put on almost 2 & a half stones with good clean foods (mostly).

Looking to meet/speak to others.

@Ruiz, Not sure what to tell really haha do you know the Malvern area? I lived there for a couple of yrs below the hills & I use to do 20+miles a week over them running.

I have been self teaching myself spanish for a few years & that's how I came across keysi, Do you know of it? As it originates from Spain.


@Belle, KFM is about the most functional art I have studied. I've trained martial arts for a long time & In everyday life Keysi is perfect. But it's not a martial art as such really.

Have tried Krav Maga & did't think much of it tbh.

Wow..learning Spanish! K tal lo llevas tio?¿ jajajj

I have no idea what keysi is or Krav Maga!! We have a martial arts school next to the house but they only teach the typical martial arts we all know about...

I used to go running too, but over the yorkshire moors until i screwed up my achiles tendon so now I just work out in the gym when I can make enough time XD. Anyway, hope you enjoy this community. There is lots of cool information here and lots of people willing to help!
