Kyokushin Karate - awesomely brutal training regimes, very, very effective and one of the deadliest in the world, it's founder killed 100 men with his bear hands using this style

Kendo - I do this for the tradition, and I've always loved this Martial Art. I have an authentic sword so I like to practice on things at home.

Tae Kwondo - really cool, I enjoy it so much competitions are awesome too

Tae Chi - Relaxing, just to heal my acheing muscles at the end of every week.

It is indeed, it's very tough, you have to be a real gladiator to want to do it, and succeed. Conditioning is the most painful part, but you get used to it after a while, when your done you should be able to cut through a baseball bat with one blow....takes a while...I can destroy one with a kick, but not a strike with the hand like my Sensei can, I'm not strong enough yet.

japanese karate founded by some master who came from india who meditated in china and was "enlightened" or something and somehow brought it to okinawa and then it just spread .... (that's about all the knowledge i have on the history of japanese karate :P) JKA (japan karate association) is said to be the guardians of karates most highest traditions (that's what i'm taught) but it has a verry stiff form ... that's why i don't like doing it in public... but it's a good place to start :Phehe

I'm studying aikido and aiki-jutsu currently.

Aikido was founded in the late 1800s by O-Sensei, or Morihei Ueshiba. It technically evolved from daito-ryu aiki-jutsu, which is a grappling art that can cause great harm to any opponent.

Aikido's philosophy is basically to protect oneself from an attacker, but doing little to no harm to the opponent [unless you want to apply aiki-jutsu techniques]. I like aikido because it focuses less on actual strength but more on reflexes and balance.

Someday I want to train in iaido and maybe cross-train into tai-jutsu. For now I'd like to concentrate on aikido.

I love the Akido philosphy and I've seen some amazing demos by great masters. They really barely need to move when attacked. But right now I'm still training and teaching tkd, gonna train MMA this summer as well. I like to spar I take out all my frustrations and feel great most of the rest of the time! I'm shorter and older and I have NO women to spar with, so I had to get good or get my butt kicked by the younger stronger bigger guys I spar with!
