Unlike everyone else, I have no specific style or belt because I go to a private dojo and learn from a master of many arts and learn with close friends. Recently, I've been sparring with people who are mastering many arts so I eventually learned to mix the techniques I learned to put up a fight. Because of this I really don't have a favorite style but Judo and Hapkido are two that I enjoy thoroughly.^^ Since it hasn't been that long since I've started, i only have a few years experience, I don't know too much more than what I've been taught by my many upperclassmen. Sometimes I find that I know how to pull a combo but don't know where it came from or its history because I only saw my friends do it and haven't formally been taught myself. It is my friends who are trying to get somewhere, professionally, with their practice and i usually help them by sparring. I just do it because I like the sensation it brings me, how should i put this...It's very satisfying.^^ Even though I wouldn't mind an official belt that could gauge my strength, I sort of think it may be better to find out how strong I am on my own in a different way. Although I don't expect anyone to understand what I mean by that.


Keiko, I think i might understand what you mean about gauging your strength by yourself. There's truly no way to feel competent without yourself feeling that first. If you like hapkido and judo, you should think about aikido/aiki-jutsu!

Anyways...

I'm Lori. Seventeen years. I've recently started aikido (May will be my fourth month). I absolutely love this martial art, and I kind of regret waiting so long to gain the courage to try it. However, now that I'm here, I want to keep training and learning what I can from my sensei before I have to change dojos (when I go off to university).

..Still yellow belt in Taekwondo because of every time there would be a promotion test I am always late..
but, still my instructor said that the performance is more important than belt.. He said that after I got gold in the Regional Tournament.. I started only last year..
Still I'm not that confident... I lack of self-confidence... Still I always do my best... that's all for now...

Styles: Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido (White Belt), Hung Gar, Tai Chi Chuan, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Tsung
I found out martial outs is more of a talent for me. Always done Kung Fu styles until I found Hapkido which I like the most. My instructor/best friend was a bare-knuckle mixed fighter who is Chris Garland's top student. Search of Jin Jung Kwan and you'll find a youtube video of Chris. I like Hapkido because of the joint manipulation techniques that can be used against anyone even with training. Of course Hapkido came with its own system of powerful kicks, speed and accuracy = power even for my size. I have been conditioning my body from other methods that would make the body like steel.
Mainly one day I feel, I will have to protect people, so I will have to prepare myself for that, kicking a 300lb man down with 1000 lbs of power or break bones to save another.

Nickname: Kimi
age:17
Style: Southern Shaolin (Brown), Nippon Kenpo (Brown), muay thai (we don't use color ranks), Boxing,so on (check in my profile to see more)...
I have done martial arts for 5 and a half years. It took me 2 and a half years for brown sash in kung fu ( i was able to jump several ranks at a time). And it took about 1 year to get the brown belt in kenpo (my shishou said i was pretty good). I am currently doing some other stuff simultaneously (it's a drain, but so much fun). Uh...started in middle school...i think, possibly earlier...some underground stuff...and got better...
My first memory was how to do a straight punch from the hip...then, my father telling me to try it on him...then, getting punched...then,..nothing...
so yeah...maybe that is the reason i chose to learn martial arts later...maybe i got training as a little kid?...but if i did, i don't remember any of it... (BTW, FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME ABOUT MARTIAL ARTS & could someone tell me what is the best method to fight a savate practitioner (the guy kicks to dang fast, and his pointy shoes hurt a lot)

since savate only consist of strking with the feet and fist so the best method i think to beat him is ground fighting so try to get close drag him onto the floor (best way just spear tackle if you don't know the proper way) and once he's on the floor start doing your stuff.(remember try to stay on top)

thanks for thre advice.^_^ i already fohgt with him though. However, he didn't use the traditional savateur's shoes, but trather, a opair of modified shoes with a relatively sharpp metal point (didnt noticcce last time because it was spray painted black). This time I noticed because he managed to hit me on my right shoulder, leaving a nice gassh...i should have taken him down like in your advice (perrhaps i wouldnt have gotten hit), but regartdless, i won hyo to chin then nerio chagi to forehead...then it was over. =]woohoo (btw, i typed w/ rihgt hand only so sorryu for the word mistrakes)
