Anyone else here enjoy the martial arts? Mostly I am talking about practising in a dojo or elsewhere rather than just watching it on TV.

What do you practice? For how long? What got you into it? What do you enjoy most about it?

What do you practice?I am a practitioner of Bukbuk-B'Kaw, the ancient art of running like a frightened chicken.

For how long?Most of my life.

What got you into it?My instinct for self-preservation.

What do you enjoy most about it?That I'm still drawing breath.

My legs are not very functional anymore though I used to be big in Muay Thai and Krav Maga. Now I focus on weapon arts mostly kendo and basket hilt broadswords.

Edit: Samurai Champloo = win

I do All-American Boxing. Not exactly martial arts, but it is a fighting style.

I did Tang Soo Do in Jr. High. I was only in it for a few months, so I only got to blue belt:

1- White
2- Yellow
3- Purple
4- Orange
5- Blue
6- Green
7- Red
8- Black

It was pretty fun but it just wasn't my thing. I'm kind of a tall guy and don't have the flexibility required.

I personally do not practice, however, we have this guy in my town that we call "Jacksonvills Ninja." Hes really some crazy old dude that dances and does martial arts moves on the side of the highway. There are even videos on youtube.com. Check it out.

Boxing is a martial art.

Martial = of, suitable for, or associated with war or the armed forces.
Art = the craft or trade using these principles or methods.
