    Rings, pendants, bracelets - something that will serve for many years and put on almost every day. Last birthday I gave my daughter a diamond graded. I understand that it is costly, but it will stay with her for life. The girl is not even adorned with jewelry - she is adorned with happy memories.

    Training With Your Significant Other

    Training with your mate can be richly rewarding, but it can also be pretty frustrating.
    Early on in my martial arts training, I discovered that I was far more likely to become a
    martial arts “princess” when I was training with my husband Trevor (and vice versa), than
    when I trained with people I didn’t know as well. For years, I avoided Trevor when it was
    time to pick partners. One too many bickering sessions had made class unpleasant and
    unproductive for us, and I was determined not to let it happen again. However, as I gained
    more experience, I began to see my home time with Trevor as a valuable training resource.
    I’ve watched many other couples, as well as close friends, have this same problem at our
    gym. This has been especially true with people who don’t like to train with anyone but
    each other. It has always surprised me that anyone would choose this scenario,
    considering my own experience. I would so much rather work with someone who is new than
    spend my training time arguing or being upset!
    When you know someone well, you know what really gets to them -- and while this may be a
    useful source of inspiration (especially in muay thai), most of the time it just gets in
    the way. It is far too easy to take things personally with your mate or close friend.
    I don’t know how many times Trevor has said to me (when I’ve accidentally whacked him),
    “Ow...can’t you be more careful? Quit trying to hurt me.” This is pretty funny,
    considering the amount of punishment he’s willing to take from other people without saying
    anything about it!
    These experiences have taught me two things. First, I don’t spar with Trevor (except for
    occasional knife sparring), nor do I train muay thai with him. For those of you that know
    Trevor, you’ll understand why I don’t like kicking thai pads with him (he’s 6’ 7“).
    Mostly, however, I’ve found that we are far too competitive and sensitive with each other
    to train effectively in these areas. Second, I try to train with other people as much as
    possible, and save my time with Trevor for homework. The ability to train with a variety
    of people is incredibly valuable, and it is one of the things I like the most about MKG.
    All that aside, I have to say it is a blessing to live and be in love with a fellow
    martial artist. Nobody’s jealous when I spend Valentine’s Day weekend at an Inosanto
    seminar. There’s always someone to appreciate my accomplishments and failures and
    discoveries. We are a source of support and inspiration for each other, and neither of us
    can slack off for very long. Best of all, we are both happy and healthy as long as we
    keep training, and this has made for a rich and enduring relationship.
    To all the other couples training together out there, I say: learn to train together
    regularly, but don’t become dependent on each other. Figure out what areas of training
    are difficult for you as partners, and find other people to train with in these areas. Go
    to class by yourself. Have your own interests, and develop your own strengths and
    weaknesses at your own pace. Use your partner’s skills to help improve your own, but
    don’t worry about being better (or worse) than them. Remember, although you are in this
    together, you are each on your own path. That’s good relationship advice as well!

    First and foremost, at my gym I personally think the MT girls are very attractive. Read: hot. It's because of this similar interest (and the intensity of training proves they are for real) I suppose. IMO, Mike B did exactly what I would like to do (though my equation is slightly different because of my love of surfing also). So in all flattery, you sound like you have an awesome wife.

    P.S. A girl that can kick my ass is a major turn on. A girl that I can spar with and she would push me, make me improve, man I think I'd have died and gone to heaven. So in conclusion (from what I've seen) MT girls are hot! Maybe it's because I'm in San Diego though (hot hot hot, especially at my school which is famous for hot girls).

    It's wierd too, cause I was wondering about this the other day as this lovely MT girl was helping me with some stuff.

    I'm sure she wouldn't mind seeing me at the gym even after we broke up. If she did, she could always take it out on me during drills... All in good fun of course... I can hear it now "Oh, sorry about that knee... It was supposed to be parry, cross, not parry, knee wasn't it?"

    On a serious note though, I don't see the possibilities of a relationship turning out great or poorly much differently just because the couple met in a gym or kickboxing class instead of on a college campus or at a favorite restaraunt or any other place people spend time regularly. It would be unfortunate if it hurt the instructor's business or the student's ability to train, but it would be great for a couple to find each other if it was not just some immature fling. Common interests are attractive after all. Hopefully we're all adult enough to use good judgement...

    Now I'm off to start the Kickboxing girls who might be interested in dating me thread...

    Well as most of you have posted it has it's good and bad sides to it. From my own experience one of my ex-gf got annoyed with the fact that i practiced everyday...So i think if you share a common interest it's good...now i'm not saying i'd date a ugly, tatooed, man-beast but if she looked good like that blond female fighter at master toddy's school...woo hooo....i tell ya if she wanted to date me i'd be all for it!!! i would care less if she could kick my butt....hahahah....

    Dating girls at the gym

    There is a certain allure, a certain je n'sais quoi about a good looking chic who can throw a good punch too. I haven't dated any, but I think I'd like to. And I'd rather not have to steal them from someone else's gym to avoid my instructor's wrath

    I met my wife in school -- great place to hook up with someone. She was a pretty girl who I just walked up to and asked where Cloud Hall was at so I could go to my next class. But, I skipped class that day because I talked to her the whole time! The rest is history -- after seven years of being friends, and a year of dating, we finally tied the knot. That's different from a Muay Thai class where you can only find someone just as buffed, and twice as ugly.

    Dating in the gym is a bad thing, because you are there to work not to hook up and loose focus.
    I can see what you mean, kinda. Its a bad thing for guys or ladies to be looking for someone at the gym to hook up with, but sometimes it just happens. As long as everyones mature about the situation I dont see any problems. Yes! When you are at the gym, you are there to work, not hit on people, talk, wrestle, or any other immature acts. But its like anything. Think of going to church. You're there for church, not to hook up with your lady. You have to know where the line is drawn.
