    Martial Arts

    Does anyone here actually do any martial arts?

    i do shorin ryu ((one of kobra's stances)it is a form of karate) and we also do weapon training there and i know how to use nunchaku, sai, staff, tonfa, sword, knives and also the paddle.

    I am a blue belt (soon to be purple) which is in the senior ranks and in August this year i will be travelling to japan to train there with the highest ranking karate official in the world!

    If you do do a martial art post which one and some comments eg. what belt you are and what you like about it.

    Or post questions for myself or others to answer on this topic.

    Well I do my custom fighting style "Shado".. and I'm learning Hapkido. My girlfriend knows Tae Kwon Do, so she's teaching me that as well.

    I've studied Booie Bijutsu (a cross between Jujitsu and WuShu). I know up to Black Belt, but I've only tested through Orange (2nd belt rank). Interesting thing about this style, is that one belt rank equals around 3-4 belt ranks in other styles.

    Belts are as follows (beginner to advanced)
    White
    Yellow
    Orange
    Green
    Blue
    Brown
    Black

    Hehe..I used to do Moonsaults off my friend's diving board...you're right. hurts like hell.

    Back to topic, I take what I've learned from MK and apply it when I'm sparring with my friend Josh. Basically, some of the common strikes from most of the styles...Pi Gua is my favorite to do, though. :D

    I've been involved with Tae Kwon Do since I was 5 and got my blackbelt when I was 12. After that I pretty much stopped doing it after that, though.

    When I was there, the belts were as follows:
    1. White
    2. Orange
    3. Green
    4. Purple
    5. Blue
    6. Blue-Black
    7. Brown
    8. Red
    9. Red-Black
    10. Black

    I came back after a year or so and they added a Yellow-Black belt in between White and Orange for the young ones who "failed" their Orange belt test, and a Orange-Black belt for the young ones who "failed" their Orange belt test a second time.

    The old belts that were a color and then black were not for the ones who failed, it was just another belt up the ladder. I never failed a test, but if you did, you just didn't get a new ranking belt. I'm guessing the reason they put the new belts in was to spare the younger students humiliation from not getting a belt; but if you as me, I would be pretty humiliated anyway of I had to wear one of those.
    "I haven't done it since the last time I've done it."

    ...wow

    Do any of you guys take martial arts? Right now I am taking Northern Shaolin and my brother takes Tai Chi Chen style and Northern Shaolin.

    I really want to join White Crane because you learn almost all the chinese weapons. :D

    an old girlfriend of mine took TKD, so I sat in on her belt-advancement thingies, and picked some stuff up. I'm more of the person that never got any formal training, but luckily doesn't get in enough fistfights to need it
