Kung fu and tai chi chuan.

I must confess, i am not versed in the Ubuntu form of kung fu. I must study and meditate on this tome of wisdom....

Your body is the only physical thing you truly have in life, everything else can be taken away.

Always been interested, never done anything. Guess that makes me just another lame guy.

I'm an 8th Dan at console-jutsu though :P.

I'm a 6th Dan at console-jutsu though :P.

Not knowing martial arts doesn't make you lame, some people have different interest than others, that's all

I really want to learn capoeira when I get in better shape. It always looked like it would be a good experience, plus I am engaged to a brazilian and I try to absorb as much as I can of her culture. I know she will miss a lot of things when she comes to Denmark to live, hopefully next year.

Escrima, Tai Chi, Karate, Jujitsu & Kick boxing.

Not so much these days the family/kids/work prevent me! I look back and at one point I was training 7 times a week, I was so fit!

I started Kempo Karate when I was 9. I then moved away to Ottawa for a year and was amazed at this dojo I found that taught a mixture of Japanese styles of Karate; mainly shotokan. I then moved back home to Newfoundland where I found nothing worthwhile (we have nothing good here :( ).

Just recently I started to think back to my martial arts days and decided to try out a Tae-kwon-do school. I quit a month later after seeing it was one of those gimme-money-and-you-get-your-blackbelt schools.

How I miss it :(

Always wanted to give that one a go, never had time, and barely have time for what i do now :(

March 8th, 2009, 12:02 AM
Tae kwon do, muay thai, and now kickboxing. Muay thai being the best by far, i loved it, as soon as my teacher has the time to train me again ill get back to it,

I really love Muay Thai.
I have been doing it since last July, and it has given me so much confidence in myself.
Also, my Kru is really helpful, and if I remember correctly, fought for GB in competitions.

A few more months of training, and I should be able to enter fights ; D

scram fu for self defense.

Interested to see a few mentions of Tai Chi Chuan here. I was injured in Jitsu (BFJ) through taking it up when too old and too slow to learn properly. After regaining the use of my arm, I migrated to Tai Chi and have been slowly progressing for eight years now.

It does not matter which path you choose. All are a route to the same summit. What matters is whether the teacher knows the way.

basic arnis, not sure if its martial art when you're already holding a stick. :D

I LOVE Tae-kwon-do, Im only second lowest degree, But i like that its required to join a Tae-Kwon-Do fighting competition to graduate any higher than orange belt. (i might say i like fighting :D ) Also we can get curses in fighting with nunchagos (not sure how to spell) And Bo-staffs, swords etc.

I also like all the kicking (like "Doljo chagi's" thats round house kicks) and punching (fast punching, in 10 seconds i can do 37 full power punches) we do. And that its one of the oldest Martial arts to exist this day.
