    Do you know any martial arts?

    Which styles, if so?

    Which ones do you want to learn if any?

    Have you ever taken part in a tournament?

    And other martial arts related questions!

    I spent a couple months taking aikido classes a while back. I can't really remember why I started, but it was probably something to do with the 'softer' nature of that martial art. It's a lot of throwing and rolling and much more self-defense oriented than the punching and kicking you get in other martial arts.

    I don't remember any of it now and I don't have plans to go back and try again.

    Started Karate when I was 5
    Started judo at 10
    Started Mixed Martial Arts at 14
    Started Muay-Thai at 15

    I could say I'm pretty experienced in different forms of martial arts since I'm teaching 12-14 years old

      I took some tang soo do classes during my middle school years, back when I was all "omg karate yeeeah". Stayed in them for a few years, not sure why I stopped. I'm thinking it had to do with my parents not being willing to pay for more classes (and I might have been losing interest by then as well).

      Took a karate class as a PE class in college, not sure what style it was. Might have been taekwondo. I just know I took that since I needed the credit and I was interested in trying out martial arts again. ><

      That's basically it. Sadly, I don't remember much of what I learned at all. :(

      I really don't see a use for martial arts. I don't think it's all that interesting. 3:

      I've never learned it, but watching it is boring and I even fought my brother who learned karate and I still won just by blocking him and pushing with my hands. Not that hard.

        I don't know any currently, but I want to learn aikido. I am not a violent person and I feel that the style greatly reflects my intentions. Unlike some people... I have no desire to pummel some guys face to a bloody pulp. Violence is a tool of the weak--the strong need raise but a finger to send their enemies away.

          I did Karate when I was younger because I obsessed with the Movie Karate Kid( the old one not one with Jackie Chan). I quit it when I after about 2 years.

              I agree with you, I too don't see the use of it however I do find it interesting, but only in movies.

              I have a friend who practiced a martial art (I forgot what it was) I manage to beat him by grabbing him and throwing him to the ground. There's also this bully in school who was showing off his "skills" he later tried to take my pen for whatever reason...then I stabbed him in the hand with the pen. Basically martial arts don't really do anything.

              I've done Taekwondo for two years. Currently green-blue belt. Went to two tournaments, highest rank being 3rd at my first one.

              I took tae kwon do lessons for 6 years. I stopped at some point after that, but I think I remember some of my moves.

              I've never taken any karate or martial arts classes cause I never had interest in them as child plus I'm not really psychically fit for these kind of things. I still really don't , but I can see a use for them in way. Really good for protection. I've known many people who have been in martial arts classes and it does seem like a neat art.

                I haven't took any classes regarding martial arts, but from young, I've always been interested in it. Especially Wu Shu (or you guys call it traditional Chinese martial arts) However, I just didn't had the courage to learn when I was young. Damn, now it feels awkward for a 15 year old kid to join a class full of kids. And I am Chinese.
