    tae kwan doe, i believe i am a yellow belt (one step away from the next one), but then i had to go to a funeral or whatever, and when i got back my mother started putting me in all these extra classes to make up for it. conclusion: i am a very confuzzled yellow belt taking classes that are way out of my league.

    so in conclusion, yellow belt in tae kwan doe.

    /edit - i forgot to put mine down. TaeKwanDo as well. Achieved bb when i was in Korea (about 7yo.) Then pursued again in college - personally taught by 2 guys (both 3rd degrees), started from scratch & tried to get 2nd degree, but didn't (they graduated & abandoned me :( ). been slacking ever since. Thinking of going back to it again. ;)

    I've studied Kenpo, Isshinryu, and Taekwon Do over the years - I'm practicing Ba Gua Zhang right now, and it's by far my favorite of the lot.

    I have some friends taking Shaolin Do in Lexington. They like to brag because they're at the main place in the country that the Grandmaster guy runs :hmm:

    All I really know is that anyone named "Grandmaster Sin" must be pretty fricken' cool :D

    I once went to a few karate lessons and a few thai kickboxing lessons. Karate was rubbish, thai boxing was insanely violent. Hence I quit both. Now I'm a master in kick-you-in-the-bollocks-fu and headbutt-you-in-the-face-until-you're-blind-fu.

    I started Karate 17 years ago, Fencing 13 years ago and also took Judo for a year. I've kinda ended up as a sort of hybrid kickboxer ... probably about to start teaching it a bit.

    Brown-and-white-belt in karate. I quit because it was boring, which is something martial arts should surely not be.

    I considered taking up tae kwon doe, but it was on the same night as the badminton club, so that'll have to wait until I move somewhere else :)

    Koshin Karate Jutsu (formerly Wado-Kai), and green belt. I hope to continue it, but it's difficult due to the ammount of school and community sports I do.

    Last time I checked, I had three feats in "Akiedo" (even spelled correctly! :eek:), therefore attaining a Weapon Focus(ie: +2 to hit, +2 to damage).

    But I have been taught a little Akiedo to the point where I can improvisate, so. By the way, it was unorganized.

    iolair - a question about fencing - is that with foils / rapier style? I'm curious. I'm thinking of getting into kenjutsu - just intrigued by the art of the japanese sword.

    In Ninjitsu class, our teacher places two rubber knives randomnly around the room, blindfolds us and we go find them and be first to stab our opponent.

    Someone once told me Karate and Tae kwon Do was the two martial arts that drew most psychos ;)

    What does the zhang stand for?



    Personally, I do some Tai ji chuan.
