hello everyone.

my name is chelsea, i am 15.
i first got interested in martial arts when i was 5. i started with tae kwon do, i took private lessons so i dont have an official belt or anything like that. later i found a kung fu & kickboxing class, i graded in kung fu first and mostly concentrated on kung fu, recieved a yellow sash but then the kung fu lessons stopped and my instructors now only teach kickboxing, of course this is really annoying for me but it wasn't my instructors fault, it was our organisation's so my instructors created their own organisation with their own name and stuff but havent started the kung fu lessons again and only teach kickboxing. so i stayed with my instructors and the same class and i am currantly a brown & white belt in kickboxing.
a teacher at my school knows muay thai, (he trains with shaun boland) and he gives us random muay thai and self defence lessons if we have free time.

so yeah thats a little about me, i guess you could ask if you wante to know more :)


what kind of kungfu?
and which do you enjoy more..muay thai or kung fu? =)

i do lau gar style kungfu.
i suppose i would say i prefer kung fu to muay thai because i have learnt more of it, and for longer. the lessons i get with my school teacher are only ever 'mess around' or taster sessions. ( not 'mess around' to the extent where i dont listen to what he says, because of course i do, its just they are only ever 15 minute 'show us what you can do' kinda things.)

i get what you're driving at. its the foundation.. i checked out lau gar..
it looks really interesting..it doesn't look like wing chun, or bagua =)
but the movements look real reenforced... is it like hungar.. or something far more different..
but what is similar..was the hand movements.. the simultaneous
block punches, and grabs... but those punches and kicks look like they really have a follow through hit..

do people get shocked if you tell them you took kungfu. and muay thai? =)

cuz they dont to me

Name: Charles
Age: 34
Location: California, USA

Styles:

Kempo Karate, American "Folk" Wrestling, Taekkyon, Taijiquan (Yang and Chen Family styles), Do-In Sul Bup, Qigong, Baguachuan, Hapkido, Theravadan Meditation (Vipassana), Vedic Chanting,


Styles I'm interested in learning:

Kendo, Kyukshin Karate, Shaio Jiao, San Shou, Non-sport Taekwondo, Judo, Baji, Xingyi, BJJ, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Zen Meditation, Hung Gar,

I've started w/ a typical california martial art Kempo Karate attributed usually to Ed Parker who developed it out of different martial arts found in Hawaii. Had its heyday in the 70's (even Elvis practiced it, in fact my first master was Dave Hebler, his bodyguard and martial arts instructor). In High School I moved to wrestling and found it more practical. I only dabbled in judo and sambo at the time. Later I learned traditional healing and martial arts from a korean master who taught a variety of martial arts but his core was taekkyon and some hapkido. I've begun to incorporate more meditation and ethical philosophy to my martial arts practice, but found this is the most difficult part for me. Lately, I've been mostly interested in Tai Chi, but want to start some hardcore karate again, like kyukushin, and get into some kendo for reaction, footwork, and contact and judo for throwing.

its quite similar to hungar, but the forms and things like that are different.

Hello all! You may call me Mia because I'm paranoid and I don't like to give out my real name online. I'm seventeen years of age. :D
Anyway, I'm a blue belt two stripe in Aikido. I don't necessarily remember how long I've been in Aikido because I don't like to count. I joined in the summer of 7th grade, so I can say that I joined when I was about 12. Basically, I've been in Aikido for 5 years.
In truth, I was always interested in martial arts but my mom put me into ballet when I was 6. I quit a year afterward. My dad's friend taught at a hapkido, but my mom thought it was too violent. In the end, one of her friends introduced her to aikido and my mom enrolled me there. So here I am, a blue belt in aikido.
I hope I made at least some sense and I didn't misspell anything.

that's very funny how your mum lets you study aikido but not hapkido because practically they're both from the same ancestors they both link back to Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu therefore their moves are basically the same.

But hapkido is more violent and more grappling. Aikido doesn't have as much grappling. Plus, we don't spar. Though i'm not so sure if hapkido spars or not. >.>

i agree with legend.. though ppl will have different opinions or ways they started..
if you joined a dojo, kwoon, or picked up a book,, or even that one video.. or dvd.. and study it.. mimmick even.. that will be the first step. if you are amazed by those doing martial arts.. i wll tell you.. i am amazed of those who catch it,,

if you want to do aikido, muay thai, tae kwon do.. who is really going to stop you.. its not just the physical..its even cultural..
maybe someone will be amazed about what you do..
but if not, and you pick up something that you are better with..
then we will have something in common.. "fa ging" --a great personal skill

do whats best for ya ^^

Martial Practice:

Jeet Kune Do (Senior Level / black belt)
Muay Thai (Instructor)

I started as a street fighter -.- who loves to fight everyday and got used to it.. then someone thought em the concept of jeet kue do which realy attracts me. so i trained jeet kune do and got inlove with it, especially their nontelegraphic movements ^_^ which really helps in actual fight situations. Jeet Kune Do has no flowery movements to negate the telegraphic movements but to develop a devastating blows in a snap. just proper coordinations of body ^_^ one inch punch tells it and i am proficient with my both legs in kicking like my arms in striking :3 it depensd on teh distance >:3 then they pulled me to muay thai -.- for impact training :3 cus muay thai have a cool stamina.. >:3 so evasion for jkd plus stamina for muay thai rocks! >:3

ill gonna do kyoukoshin dis week for more impact training and to have flowery movements and forms >:3 and discipline -.- cus i wnt traditional martial arts.. ^_^
