Just out of interest, were you really rolling on the floor laughing at the thought of that?

But anyways, I like martial arts although I don't do any. I did karate but that was in the days of yore

I did 4 years of Tae Kwon Do. Great for keeping fit, and improving your co-ordination. I expect I'd be quite handy in a fight, but I have no intention of finding out.

im technically still a black belt at taekwondo. but its been about two years since i took classes. and the whole system was crock anyway. basically as long as you waited the required two months, you advanced a level. there were six year old black belts running around at times. so i got to black and stopped taking. but im thinking i might do MMA. i hear thats pretty intense.

youre not. at least not if you plan to rely entirely on TKD. its way too rule and honor oriented lol. maybe if the other guy fought only with taekwondo too.

I'm Black belt at Taekwondo. Although it wasn't that hard. =/ Hopefully second dan will be a challenge.

You are deluded if you think martial arts are for any purpose other than for beating people up. Especially considering that you train Muay Thai...did you think you'll solve things peaceably with a knee to the head and an elbow strike to the temple?

If it wasn't that hard, quit going to your gym because you are wasting a lot of money and not learning how to fight.

I trained in karate for 7 years and got my 2nd degree black belt... I haven't trained much in the past couple of years though, so I'm a little out of it. I still know how to kill someone though. I'm looking for a good kung fu school in Ottawa, anyone know of one that's fairly well respected?
#15
Started Muay Thai a couple of months ago. Got a really good instructor as well, who makes sure you work like crazy every session. Hopefully I'll start improving to a decent level soon.

Tell that too people like Lyoto Machida, Chuck Liddell, and Georges St. Pierre. Especially Machida, that guy is just awesome, and is going to wreck Ortiz up tonight. But for the thread, I'm going to hopefully start doing MMA training soon. Muay thai, brazilian jiu-jistu, boxing, wrestling, etc. I've already have 2 years experience in Tang Soo Do from many years ago, and was in wrestling.

Yeah, karate isn't a joke in the right hands. But the majority of places that teach karate are typical McDojos with weak white guys who do not spar or really even know how to fight. Besides, those three fighters do not use karate primarily, other than Machida. I mean, Chuck Liddell's fighting style bears zero resemblance to karate. GSP uses wrestling as his primary tool.

Awesome sport. Not a so awesome self defence technique. But I love it anyway.

Chuck Liddell's Koei-Kan Karate, and Kempo Karate in MMA - the chambered punches, the dropping of the hands, the kicks. Liddell began studying Koei-Kan karate at the age of 12; the tattoo that can be seen on his scalp reads "Koei-Kan" in Kanji. He went on to gain his Black Belt and win a national championship title in that same style. I'm not saying it's everyones solely best thing, which in Machida's it is for him. But yes, there's lots of kids at the age of 10 who go to a mini-mall for 2 years and get a black belt, which has led to this karate is a hack thing. Look at Machida's training schedule and you'll see what I mean. And yes GSP's weapon of choice is his amazing wrestling and incredible size and strength, and explosiveness. But come on he comes out in his karate gi.

I did Taekwon Do for about 3 years when I was younger. I'm going to get into martial arts again. Any suggestions as to what kind?

I wouldn't fight the way I spar.

But I still have blocking and grab release reflexes, and any punches and kicks will be more efficient. So compared to someone my build and fitness without martial art training, I should be better in a fight.

I'm a white belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I've managed about 9 months of study over the last 2 years because of various personal issues, but I try to keep up with it even in my down time. I really love the sport.

Ive recently started Muay Thai and im liking it so far.. im pretty much having to learn from books and practicing on my own big bag though as there are no clubs anywhere near me.
#26
I've been studying kenpo (also anglofied as kempo) for about five or six years, and I love it to death. I can't go to the dojo as often as I'd like because of distance and other activities that get in the way, but I study and practice when I can.
#27
Reached 2nd dan in taekwondo, really enjoyed it. Never had any pretense that i was "hard" or that id kick anyones ass (in a street fight i mean).

Taekwondo sparring (WTF) style was excellent though, full contact (with body protectors on) and 90% kicks, beautiful to watch....not the most effective style tho

Stopped training when i got a bit bored, tried coming back to it, even instructed for a while.

Think i reached blackbelt at 18, used to have these older guys who would join from other clubs look down on me, until sparring came around. A faked front-leg lead into a snapped turning kick to the face normally got me the respect the belt didnt always give me
God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed.

I done jujitsu for a while, not sure how long exactly, must have been a year or so, got to green belt but by that time i was getting kind of pre-occupied with other things and getting kinda out of practice, plus the days and times weren't too good for me. Also done escrima for a bit at the same time which i enjoyed alot but the class didn't have a solid training schedule, it was a small class and most of the people there were regulars, but when one took the week off the class was cancelled for the week, if i could find another escrima place in my area i would probably go.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

I'm doing savate. It's one of the few european ( if not the only one? ) martial arts. It's a bit like muay thai except it's not as agressive and violent.
#30
I used to do Tae Kwon Do but I had to stop due to monetary issues . My uncle has been practicing Tae Kwon Do, Judo and a few others I think since he was a little boy (he's about 60 now, or around that) He's a black belt, not too sure of what degree, but he has a karate school in NYC and he went to Australia to teach karate over the summer.

I used to do Tae Kwon Do, now I practice Hokutoryu Ju-Jutsu, which is one of the best martial arts in the world.
EDIT: oh yeah and join the group http://groups.ultimate-guitar.com/martial_arts/

How so? I'm not doubting you but in what way do you think it qualifies as one of the best? I'm gonna go ahead and say JKD is the best martial art(if you can call it that) in the world because its whatever works.

Also, is it possible to learn some of this on my own? And are there any sites I could learn some of this at?

I would go to a martial arts school but I don't have the money.

And which style would be the best to learn?

seriously, go for muay thai.
its one of the deadliest arts in the world, it kicks serious ass.
yeah you can learn by yourself. start off with youtube.

:EDIT:
and oh, if you wanna strike go for muay thai, i personally think its the best, im not even biased. if you want to grapple go for Brazillian Ju-Jitsu(BJJ).
research have been done these 2 really pwn.

Well... for many reasons. First off, it's a martial art that actually works and can be applied to real life situations; it's taught to police and military special forces in Finland for instance. Why I consider it better than most of the martial arts is the fact that the quality is carefully supervised. All the belt exams take place in national camps and it's not really possible to get new belts, if you you're not skilled enough. All the Hokutoryu black belts are proficient in pretty much all martial arts as it combines all the areas of fighting, whether it's Karate or MMA.

Yes, I'm sure JKD is also a great martial art and it does have quite a lot in common with Hokutoryu as far as I know.
