I practice Taekwondo and Shotokan Karate.I chose Taekwondo because one of my friends did it.Taekwondo was my first style.I take Shotokan Karate because I once sparred with someone who used Shotokan Karate.I liked how Karate does not depend on one type of attack.Even though the kicks in Taekwondo are awesome,there is more variety with Karate.I still practice both.

Martial arts is not just for the body it is for the mind. It is a way of life to some.
I practice Judo, grappling and wrestling. Though i always wanted to do Savate, which is french martial arts.

I practice Tae Kwon Do. I began with kick-boxing but then changed to TKD 'cause it's more awesome!!
If there aren't any problems, I'll participate on a competition this weekend (my first in the last years...so excited...) and do the exam for black belt at the end of June...

I don't actually practice a martial art, but I know some Karate, and I can if you want disable someone with a simple move of my hand.

I recently got my Judo black belt and my Karate Brown Belt...I'm still a beginner at Taewondo I've started only a month ago...

I got my Aiki-Jitsu black belt when I was 10 and my Jitsu black belt when I was 14...

I'm quite the fighter! >Razz

I'm starting Karate and I know a bit of Judo and Muay Thai. Enough to disable someone and possibly kill them- not that I intend to.

Good luck,both in the tournament and on the belt exam.I never practiced in a dojo,so I do not know how you earn your belt ranks.One of Mom's friends moved from South Korea before the Korean War started.He is a 6 dan black belt.Even though he did not start a dojo,he is still a certified instructor,so he is allowed to give people belt rankings without his credibility being questioned by authorities.In order to advance in rank,I had to prove that I was improving everyday and not picking fights.Other than that,I do not know what criteria my instructor looked for when he allowed me to move to the next level.How does earning the next belt level work in a dojo?I never went to one of the facilities.I always trained privately with my instructor along with his kids.

Thank you! (I got 3rd in the tournament...)

That's an interesting way...
We have to do the form we need to do for the belt (and know all the previous ones), fight 2 people and do free self-defense (the Iboterion/Hosinsul (sp?))...
Sometimes we also have to break a um...piece of wood...

For the black belt, we have to go somewhere, where all the people who want to make it go (two times a year, I guess). Then we have to do some kicks, fight someone and do the 8th Form and two others, I guess (6th or 7th and 4th or 5th).

I just know, that in order to get a (black) belt, the coreans have to say that it's okay and you'll get a Kukkiwon (sp?) certificate...

I'm a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I started TKD because of geographic convenience but I've kept it up because its cool and keeps me as fit as a pepsi junkie can be!
I grade by doing exams, in which all aspects of my Tae Kwon Do are examined, especially patterns which are a set sequence of moves against one or more imaginary opponents (By far the least fun part of TKD). These exams are less frequent as the grades increase. I did my 2nd degree exam 2 years ago and I have to wait another year before my 3rd degree!

I like competing, although I'm not a very stylish fighter. I rarely if ever punch, I'm all legs! Power Surge

At the moment, Tae Kwon Do. Not impressed with it entirely. I like it, but I need something mroe agressive, like Karate. In my opinion, Many of the other martial Arts can easily beat Tae Kwon Do. Still I will get Black belt, then move on.

Try Hapkido. It is not sport oriented like TKD. It is more practicle.

It is similar to TKD, but more practical for self defense. They have a lot of joint locks and great defense against weapons.

Dude, that sounds good. That's what I need, especially in my 'hood. I live in what is essentially the slums. Gangstahs and gangs abound.

I kinda practice a mix I guess you could call it. I have jsut basically self taught myself different things and not really stuck to any one style as I was not allowed to actually go and take a martial arts class.

I used to live in a very similar situation, which is why I learned martial arts in the first place.

I fought a person who practices Krav Maga today (civilian version). Krav Maga is a very tough style to fight. Does anyone here use Krav Maga?

Nope. I use a smattering of arts from random Senseis focusing on Kendo. I love that stuff.

As soon as I get out of my wheelchair I plan on practicing Muay Thai and/or Kung Fu. Can somebody give me advice on how each of these two styles work? I am going to a dojo to watch but I would like to hear your thoughts as well.

From what I've heard, Muey Thai is very aggressive, focusing on elbows and knees more than most martial arts would.

I wouldn't mind giving Wu Shu a go, after seeing Jet Li's fearless. (Don't worry, I know I will never be able to fight like that. I'm under no such illusions)

I used to practice Karate, but I haven't anytime recently. I want to pick it back up, and then learn some other martial arts. I just think it's a great way to stay and shape and defend yourself if ever need be.
