    Cool Geijetsuka-garu. Studying in a dojo is really something. We used to practice near a temple or in gurukul (similar to a dojo).

Back home, in Madurai, we used to perform yoga, asanas, and meditation outside the temple (It was called a warrior temple because back then when there was Caste system in India, the warrior caste used to train here). It is a very ancient temple. That is why, Madurai is called the temple town (there are lots of temples and shrines).
    Thank you! I wish there were temples and shrines in my area... But, I've found some places outdoors around my house that are peaceful enough for me to focus... Yes, Jeet kune do is very deep... There's a lot of philosophy behind it (being that it was a method developed by Bruce Lee) I enjoy it! It sounds like you have a lot of great training, as well!

    I'm just your plain, ol' WTF style Taekwondo student. I focus more on the competition aspect of taekwondo, but lately, I've been shying away from that side. I practice some hapkido, which is taught at the same dojang, and I'm slowly getting more serious with it - joint locks and break falls are cool. I'm currently debating whether I should start learning a punching art or boxing just to complement the other two.

    Thanks for posting your reponses, Spike'sRose-garu and Malice-garu . No problem Spike'sRose-garu , you are one of those kind people, who take time to respond to other people's question (and also you Malice-garu). Yes, I did have loads of fun practicing the Swarga Chakra martial arts with my best friends in Madurai: Ruru, Kuru (they were twin brothers), sloka and Haruki (he is Japanese BTW). It is always nice to practice yoga, meditation and martial arts in a peace location. We used to practice either outside the temple or in Gurukul (similar to Dojo).

    Excellent Dark Phoenix-garu. Kick-boxing is amazingly cool. In Madurai, there were annual kick-boxing tournaments on a huge square wooden plank floating on water with four wooden pillers at each corner (kind of similar to one of the arenas in soul caliber 3 with plenty of surround temples and shrines). It is truly an amazing site.

    Back in the 5th Grade I took 1 day of Capoeira, if that counts for anything. Damn class got cancelled during the second week.
