My Grandma once told me Tai Chi was deadly.

So she challenged me.

I hope your recovery is a speedy one. ;)
I train in Gun kataWhy use hands and feet when I have a gun?


Grand Master Chun Sik Kim used to tell a story when people would talk about the best defense. He tells his students about how during the war he used to teach the U.S. Marines the fighting styles of Korea. This way they would know what to expect and how to deal with the military they were going to face. It made him famous but also won him some enemies.

When the war ended and the marines left, things were chaotic for a while. He became a target of the local thugs that wanted to hurt him to prove how tough they were. They came one night, after everyone had left, and the master was all alone sweeping out the school. There were 8 of them, they had knives and clubs.

He stops telling the story right there.

And Pauses

It is inevitable that one of the young students asks, “What did you do Master Kim”, thinking that they are going to learn some ultimate fighting technique, and they do.

“What did I do?”, he responds, “I slept in the dojang of course. Best defense, don’t be there. Always remember.”

The martial arts technique that is better than a gun. Don’t be there.

I always love that story. It is much better to hear the little Korean Grand Master tell it.

Wrestling , kick boxing and Judo. With a little military training thrown in.

TBH the best training I got was from working as a doorman for the last 10 years. You learn what works and what doesn't in a real fight. You learn when to walk away and when to stand your ground which is probably the hardest thing to learn.

You could be the best martial artist in the world but you still can't dodge a bullet.
Tae Kwon Do for about 10 years, was a very amazing time in my life, and shaped me into the man I am today. With that history the monk class does draw me a bit, but I am having too much fun on the Hunter to roll one :P Maybe this weekend!
Been training in MMA off and on since before we changed the name from NHB to MMA. Competed a few times back when I was in college, and I still hope to maybe fight on one of the Texas "minor league" cards at some point. Unfortunately, I find it tough to train seriously enough when I'm working forty hours and odd shifts.

Martial arts are crazy fun, I recommend them to everyone! Video games too of course. :)
i took tae kwon do as a 6th grader, stoped at 8th grade cuz i was bored, but at least i know the wrsit blockage(its when you use your wrist to block a blow to the head, i dont even know whats the name of it, can any1 tell me?)

Karate as a kid. =(

Tae'kwon'do as an adult. <3

To be fair, I have a feeling the reason Tae'kwon'do was so much more fun was because I didn't have to deal with undisciplined kids, and less because of any big difference in style.

Well quite obviously the joke was not meant for you. Why bother when it wasn't even directed at you?

Get a brain moran. (another dumb joke, please correct it though, or better yet post your MA experience instead)

If yours was meant as a joke then I'm the moran that didnt get it.
9 Years Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido and Judo. Missouri Gold Medalist in 1993 for Tae Kwon Do.
The only martial art I have serious training in is Shotokan Karate, though it's been years. I try to practice the forms from time to time.

I've dabbled in many others, though: Tai Chi Ch'uan, Judo, Aikido, Kendo, Iaido, a couple others I forget. Not enough to count as having any serious training, though--I really should stick to one and learn it.
A friend stuck me in the arm with a throwing star once. I lean towards guns now.
Guns>throwing stars.
I studied karate when I was a teenager, but stopped after 3 years. Then, 11 years ago I started learning a slightly different style at a community college. Now, I'm one of the instructors there. Also, the other instructors are the ones who convinced me to play this game.
