  • Army martial arts

    Does anyone know what martial arts training you can do in the army, if any? I noticed Judo competiitons etc. listed in An Cosantor and Connect and was just wondering if there were army clubs for this or do people do it on their own time outside the Defence Forces?

      Not this again, I made the mistake of asking this once.
      Theirs not to make reply,
      Theirs not to reason why,
      Theirs but to do and die:
      Into the valley of Death
      Rode the six hundred.

          Yes there is a good Judo following in the DF, there is yearly competitions and we (not me personnally) have fought and beat the shite out of the Gardai, ( only in the competitions and outside tram co)

          if you d a different style and wish to set up a club, most units would jump at the chance to have an extra degree of fitness training and shite kicking ability

          Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
          Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
          The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
          The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
          The best lack all conviction, while the worst
          Are full of passionate intensity.
