Anybody here do martial arts? I've fenced for years, and did Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiujitsu, and Choy Li Fut Kung Fu for short amounts of time (I keep moving and have to leave old schools behind ) I'm going to try out a Italian Long Sword class tomorrow.
Any martial artists here?
I wish! If only I could kick butt like my characters in Tekken, LOL.
I'm a fan. Thats about it.
I did tae kwon do for several years, and for a brief time taekgyeon (the Korean martial art that preceded tae kwon do). I really loved it, but the park district class was starting to get too big, then I had a baby, and now the park district class is dissolving and as much as I like the main academy I can't afford to take classes there. I have to say, doing martial arts gives me a whole new appreciation of martial arts movies. I love looking at a scene and going "I could do that," or "man, I wish I could do that!"
I was a black belt, but have not practice in it for years (about 15).

Sheesh! The first time I read the title I thought it said "Marital Arts".
Anyway, I had a Krav Maga lesson yesterday. I can still type.
my daughters all took karate lessons many years ago, when they turned 15 didnt want to continue so husband took over on pkg deals i bought in advance. he actually refused his black belt becuz he had to register with police dept. as lethal weapon. so he stayed a brown belt for three yrs of classes . unfortunialy i was there practice at home guinnea pig..but..i learned how to protect myself somewhat better..and learned to run faster then they could catch me !!!
