List your martial art

Thought I'd start a thread for people to list the martial art(s) they practice, as I recently began this wonderfully alluring activity. Please only post if you are actively practicing as I don't think people are as interested in that one karate seminar you attended 4 years ago. I'm curious to see how many TFPers are martial artists, and which arts are represented here.

Anyway, I'm currently studying Shao-Lin Do at a small school here in town.

Alot more grappling (Brazilian than years before)

Bruce always had Sambo, and obviouly Chin na with Dan bringing Demog to the table, but the Brazilian form of grapping is an excellent addition to the foundation.

I'd like to train in Akido for something different and spirituality. I love progressive martial arts and believe developing attributes is often neglected in classical martial arts, but I do well with structure which is why I loved Kenpo when I trained in it.

I feel my attributes are at a level I can focus on internal training now and/or spirituality like with Akido.

I used to do a number of martial arts. Tae Kwon Do was the first I ever did. I did that for about 7 years. Then the school I went to went out of buisness so I (and about half the school) moved to a Karate school. It did karate but also had alot of Jui Jitsu and Kickboxing. As well as a number of more generic street grapling type stuff. It was nice because it was more usefull then the Tae Kwon Do as far as realistic street fight scenarios. I did that for about about 3 years. I have been out for about 5 years. I need to get back in but it takes alot of time,money and discipline. All of which I have very little of at this time and moment.

The only martial art I practice is Tai Chi.

It is so peaceful and meditative. Tai Chi is not as much of an offensive martial art as Kenpo or Tae Kwon Do, but it can be useful defensively.. I mostly practice it to relax or connect with my body when I'm feeling stressed.

I started with Judo way back when.
I used to teach Chinese Kenpo some years ago,
with some kickboxing.
2nd degree black

I would like to get back into a dojo for Kenpo,
however Aikido or classic Kung-fu would be interesting too.

I've been doing Taekwon Do for about seven years. I'll quite likely receive my black belt in six months or so. The last year or so, I've been learning Eskreema(sp?) and some Krav Maga. I'm very much interested in learning Kung Fu and T'ai Chi. Also, I'd like to try Shaolin Kempo Karate.(I may have that one misnomered.)

I've done Aikido for about 8 months, it's not long but I can use most of what I know effectively. I've just started to learn Flow Boxing. Chinese Martial Science. Works well.

Plummie --

Tai Chi really is great. In fact, in Shao-Lin Do, learning some tai chi is required. We refer to kung fu as "external" and tai chi as "internal".

Practitioners of Shao-Lin Do can do side-by-side training with tai chi, but it isn't required. I wanted to do that but can't afford it.

Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do - I wanted something more traditional than the spar-for-points sport that a lot of TKD has become.
We also cross train in Hap Ki Do - some powerful, fun stuff.

Currently, I am practicing Tae Soo Do/Hwa Rang Do. It's a Korean martial art that covers basic kicking and punching, but also goes heavily into joint locks/manipulations, throws and grappling as well. It's also a healing art once you get up into the higher black sash ranks. Around 4th Dan Black Sash, healing practices are incorporated into training.
Tae Soo Do is the "sport" version of Hwa Rang Do. It's basically a simplified version because there is so much to remember in Hwa Rang Do, that they had large wash out rates of students. So, Dr. Joo Bang Lee created Tae Soo Do as an undergraduate program to Hwa Rang Do.

Can read more about it here, if you're interested: World Hwa Rang Do Headquarters.

Capoeira is so cool. If I wanted to focus on a more visual art, capoeira would definitely be my first choice.

I used to do Ki Soo Do (Korean, quite similar to Tae Kwon Do) for about two years.

Since then I've been Studying Wushu (Long Fist) in theory from printouts off of Wushulegend.com, just until I can pull together some dough for a private one-on-one/handful-of-people instructor.

When I taught, I preferred to teach kids & women.

The men just wanted to become Bruce Lee too fast,
most being super-macho Marines.

The kids you had to do things to keep their attention,
but in the end taught them disipline.
With the ladies, it was like you were giving them permission to fight,
they built their self-confidence & ability to confront.

Nothing better than to help a person grow.

Took Karate as a kid, then I dabbled in Muy Tai, then practiced boxing for a while. I started in Ninjutsu (Bujinkan System) about three years ago. If you can, look into this art. Its not for everyone but it is where I found my home.

Took Tae Kwon Do for four years to get about as much out of it as I could... and only then did I discover that a friend's dad is a martial arts teacher! So now it's Jiujitsu all the way... it's very fun, interesting, and practical. I'm also interested in Judo but I've never learned that.

As far as I've seen the difference would be in formal excersizes(kata), other than that the throws tend are the same through everything my instructor has gone to clinics on or studied. The entry differs slightly but thats it.

Whatever works

I'm still a newbie, so don't take my word as anything more than an opinion from someone with a lot to learn. I've practised Okinawan karate, Tae Kwon Do, Jujitsu (not brazilian), and a bit of American boxing. My last school did a bit of everything, depending on what our ADD and very trained instructor wanted to do, and what visiting teachers came by to visit. Good approach for the experienced practitioner, confusing for the beginner, but overall, very fun. So, my op. is that different athletes are better suited for different styles or schools. I'm stocky. Short and powerful, a bit slow, and naturally patient. Certain approaches work for me, that don't work for a tall and lanky guy. We did a lot of sparring, half contact, full speed, and that's really the best way to find what works. I love Jujitsu, with the punching, close in kicking and blocking mixed with grappling. I also really like sticky hand style kung fu, which is really frustrating for someone who is trying to beat you up.

I took karate for five years starting in fifth grade. Later I studied Tiger-Crane kung fu for a couple of years. Lately I've been practicing Tai Chi Chuan (for a few years now) and find that it fits me the best.

I study Zen Chi Ryu, a more defensive martial art. But, Defence is often the best offence. I'd like to get into some weaponry, as I dabble with a bit of fire twirling, and we sometimes use swords in that, and I can get up a wicked rhythm when I'm in the mood.

Well I don't know if you guys would consider studying theories and principles of the art actually knowing an art. I've read books and such on JKD, Shaolin (several types, long fist, white crane and Chin Na) Tai Chi and a lot of other chinese arts. I'm interested in Muay Thai (because I'm part Thai) and took an introductory class right down the road from me but it didn't really seem like it, it felt kind of like american boxing and the teacher was Phillipino I think. Still, would you guys consider any of this knowing anything? I have friends around who actually study the arts that I can beat in sparring matches and such. Do you guys actually think that I know anything or just wish I do? lol
