Learning the 4HWW lifestyle so you can travel and train in Martial Arts around the world?
I have trained in several types of Martial Arts throughout my life so when I started traveling I took advantage of the opportunity to try out different types of Martial Arts right from the source. Like Silat in Indonesia, Muay Thai in Thailand and a few others – also just having a chance to watch some of my favarte Martial Arts “in action” is way cool
I have a good friend that originally came to Thailand just so he could train in Muay Thai – he has been living there for over 13 years now and has several successful businesses that support his lifestyle
I figure due to the success of shows like fight quest more people will travel to study Martial Arts.
Just checking in to see if there are any traveling entrepreneur or 4HWW types (or ones planning to be) that practice Martial Arts here.

Yep, there are some of us here.
My travel for training has been within the USA so far, but my goal for this time next year is to be improving my Boxe Francaise Savate in Paris.
I am aiming to be able to spend every 3rd month in Brazil training bjj and surfing in the afternoons. Just testing a few muses at the moment to enable this.

10 years of Karate, with a bit of TKD and Capoeira thrown in there. I currently train Capoeira and tricking, a sport that draws from XMA, gymnastics and breakdancing. I plan to spend a fair bit of time traveling learning dancing and martial arts. And I have tricking friends all over the world I'm excited to meet.

I have been studying BJJ for over three years. I am planning a mini-retirement to Brazil next spring.

I've done a few years of aikido in Tokyo and Sapporo, and Calif. A few days of Baqua in Beijing. And my favorite--Systema --some in the US and a bit in London. I hope to visit Russia to practice at a school. Also did some Tescao (Tibetan) in Atlanta, Ga where they have unusual physical practices such as one handed handstands while the other hand dribbles a tennis ball. Their shortrange punches hit as hard as systema's.

11 year in BJJ (just got my Brown Belt this weekend) and many years of karate, jeet kune do, kali, and other assorted arts.
Have applied 4HWW principals for many years, mainly just getting the job doen so I can sneak off and train. The lastyear has been an exercise in working from home, blocking off time and training like crazy. There were many weeks that I would say I worked as many hours as I trained.
Next step, leaving the job, opening a school and running a muse or two from the back office. I wish I could throw in the travel but the two kids keep me local. At least until we take off for New Caledonia (or Mediteranen, since the Suez is getting hard to pass through and Israel isn't a tourist destination right now)

I currently compete in amateur boxing. Would love to become competent at the various national disciplines of countries I travel to. (ie BJJ in Brazil, Muay Thai in Thailand, etc.)

I also did some boxing. I want to learn Krav Maga from the real IDF someday.
