    The Martial Arts Thread

    Let's see what kind of army of hand-to-hand combatants we have here!

    I took T'ai Chi Ch'uan classes for a year, though I'm out of practice. It was the Chen style, and we had two alternating teachers who had drastically different personalities which was almost as fun as learning Tai Chi itself.

    One was stone-faced, in shape, and all business, and the other was... laidback and fat! But the latter was a LOT more experienced and would probably be able beat the former, which is just hilarious... but I guess that's the power of being experienced at martial arts right there.

    Anyway, ever done martial arts? Any interesting experiences?

    Karate for 9 years so far.

    Never get involved in martial art politics. Ever. It just causes pain.

    TAE-KWON-DO is my style.
    a few years ago i stoped cause of the studying (believe it)
    i also like Kanto a LOT (i simply LOOOOVE katanas) but i never had a chance to practice it with someone
    Anax has a katana but he hasn't showed it to me yet

    *Because you are like the sky, causing me pain in love... because I love you.

    Re: The Martial Arts Thread

    Ki Aikido, it was one of the best experiences i ever had, its a bit different from traditional aikido
    stayed with it for 8 months and i had to move cuase my university is in another city, .
    that was the only one i stuck with, i tried a lot but luck and discipline were not on my side.
    never the less you can ask me about almost any martial art ,my fondness in martial made me obsessed for a while and i have researched a lot
    of them on the web.

    Re: The Martial Arts Thread

    I've been training Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, more commenly known as Ninjutsu, for almost three years and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
    Our dojo used to be really small (actually, it still is) and we didn't have a sensei who was authorized to carry out gradings. Fortunately, last autumn our dojo joined a cooperation with a dojo in another city and now we have an authorized sensei. He's a really good sensei and he has even trained under our grandmaster Hatsumi-sensei in Japan.

    wow, bujinkan eh,thats quite cool,was never able to stick with it though after giving it a try,never the less,it has one of the best
    reputations as a japanese martial art and Budo schools.
    but then your name bibichan doesnt really reflect that
    so three years should make you about shodan,am i right.

    I got my nick from something else anyway.
    Shodan? Hell no. Bujinkan is not Karate. Shodan would make you Shidoshi-ho; sensei in-training. Our new sensei is 6. Dan (Shidoshi).
    And like I wrote, there were no gradings in a loooong time, about 2 years and something. I'm 9. Kyu with a lot of experience. Unfortunately, my sensei thought too late of having my friend and me do 8. Kyu grading right away. But you don't train Bujinkan for the grades anyway, but for yourself. In Japan there usually aren't even gradings. Your sensei decides when you're ready.

    We don't really do any "acrobatic jutsus". Ninjutsu is more about efficience; quick and deadly/efficient. It usually hurts a lot to be on the receiving end of a jutsu.
    Nevertheless, we do have "acrobatic elements", like cartwheels or handspring.

    Re: The Martial Arts Thread

    I have done Taekwondo for 3 years and Judo and Jiu-Jitsu for some months.
    I liked Taekwondo best but I had to stop because of boarding school. As I lived at a different place than my home during the week I could not attend the training.
