    I think it's cool, all of the people that are taking martial arts, shows we have something in common.

    Re: Martial Arts?

    I have practised judo for 6 years, and hate the fact I had to put it on standby due to university timetables. Oh well I'll see how it comes out next year.

    I've practised Tai Chi (had to stop due to timetable as well) and Kung Fu (which I stopped, finding it too aggressive for my taste).

    However I do enjoy a good Jackie Chan movie

    Re: Martial Arts?

    I've been in both Karate and Kenpo. I would really like to start both of them again and get a black belt, I also want to take Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Judo, I want to take them all, so then I can mix and match them to my ability. And learn how to use a bokken and a real sword in the fighting.
    The only reason I got out of karate was because it was conflicting with my school, since it ended up being on Wednesday night, and that was back when I was ten, now I'm eighteen. The reason I stopped Kenpo was because of school. It was a class I could take at school. I took it for two semesters and had to stop because in my free classes they didn't offer Kenpo for second year. And then I graduated. *Sniff*

    Re: Martial Arts?

    lol something like that happened to me before. I think it was like 6th grade, and one of my teachers was teaching aikido after school. I was pretty happy, and I didn't have to pay for it. We had all of the supplies we need and everything. And the the teach bailed on us to teach at a different school

    Re: Martial Arts?

    There's nothing like the martial arts. I used the martial arts of many styles to help me get over a real problem I have with my nervous system. It's a condition that effects the movement of my body, causing insane tremors, similarly found in Altimers. (I hope I spelled that right.) I used many wild arts to strengthen my legs to the point that I can use only my legs to perform many talents. In the process, I even learned how to harness the arts to help me dance, since I use a lot of moving and jumping similar to capoiera. Mind you, I have no real talent in any forms I use. They were just a way to get me through my diability. It's all that keeps me working, playing, and living life to it's fullest. It also helped me to get my strong heart, and spirit. Without the art... I'd not be K' Heart.

    Far be it for me to be anything special, when the only special thing I desire with me, is the special person I share my gifts with.

    Re: Martial Arts?

    Well i was considering taking Capoeira or learning Panther style Kung-Fu but those two aren't exactly the easiest to find, so in the meantime my search continues....
