i trained taekwon-do for a year and tried ju jitsu a little, but i really want to switch to something else. can u tell me about the martial arts that you are training?
taekwon-do is a martial arts that uses legs the most, that means kicking is most important. and u usually dont use any weapon in it.

I've done Shaolin kempo, TKD, a bit of Kendo, and a bit of Shotokan.

Kendo's cool, but not too practical. It's more for recreation than anything else. I don't like TKD either, that's why I stopped it.

I used to practice Shotokan Karate, but realised in a real fight scenario its not very effecient martial arts. Even though lots may disagree with my statement because its quite popular, i personally thought its was not my kind of thing so i ended up leaving at brown belt.

I then took up Jujutsu during my first semester at uni but due to my exams and courseworks unforutantely left it...Now if i do ever consider taking up a martial arts it would be either; jeet kun do, wing-chun or muah thai.

Kendo, well its true it is not too practical to use in the street, cause when fighting Kendoka use a small swing and always taught the way to evade their own technique. But, if u can master kendo, u can easily apply it by adding u`r own move to the style, cause it is easier to modify then other weapon technique, well that`s my opinion anyway.

Ah but can one truly master any art? 'Mastery' implies an end of learning. A master will never have the capabilities a student possesses as a student is always learning.

Hm... Master may not be the right word then...... So at least when u achieve dan 2. U can modify it by making the kata as the source. Well actually it can just form when u fight against non weapon or other weapons art.

I trained in Shaolin kempo for 3 years, but unfortunately the school closed due to financial issues and I have been very busy. I still practice what I learned though

I haven't trained in any martial art YET, but here is a list of some of the stuff that I would probably like to train in:

Taido = techniques offer many innovations: the inclusion of spinning and twisting movements, gymnastic maneuvers, speedy and effective footwork, and a changing body angle.


Traditional Testa=In traditional Testa, there is a sole focus on trapping and headbutting.


Shurikenjutsu=is a general term describing the traditional Japanese martial arts of throwing shuriken, which are small, hand-held weapons used primarily by the Shinobi or "Ninja" in Feudal Japan, such as metal spikes bō shuriken, circular plates of metal known as hira shuriken, and knives (tantō)


Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū=The Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū is a comprehensive martial system. This means that unlike modern martial ways such as Kendo or Iaido, which concentrate on one specific area of training, study is made of a broad range of martial skills. The main emphasis of the school is on Kenjutsu (sword technique). A wide range of other weapons are being taught as part of the curriculum, but the sword remains the central weapon.


Ittatsu-ryū= “Hojōjutsu (捕縄術) or Nawajutsu, (縄術) is the traditional Japanese martial skill of restraining a person using cord or rope (Hojō). It found use on both on and off the battlefield in up to 125 individual martial arts schools. It was used in particular by the various police-forces of the Edo-period and remains in use to this day with the Tokyo police force “


Kokikai= The Kokikai style emphasizes natural movement, ki development, relaxation, good posture and mind-body coordination. It is a minimalist martial art that focuses on making techniques effective while using little physical effort. An axiom of the style is “minimum effort for maximum effect.” The name Kokikai means “school of radiant ki”.


Aikikai=Aikikai is sometimes described as Ueshiba Aikido, and is thought by some to be the most traditional of the aikido schools. It has retained many of the aspects which Morihei Ueshiba valued in his original aikido, such as the non-competitive training system and the emphasis on flowing technique.


Shodokan Aikido=Shodokan Aikido (昭道館合気道, Shōdōkan Aikidō) is the style of aikido founded by Kenji Tomiki (富木 謙治 Tomiki Kenji, 1900–1979). It is sometimes referred to as Sport Aikido due to the fact that it is the only style of aikido to hold regular competitions, and also referred to as Tomiki Aikido, after its founder.

Well, Shotokan stresses very straight-forward attacks with brutal impact force, so people who do a lot of it probably have strong bodies and powerful stances. I think it's more useful than TKD, which involved way too much kicking and not enough use of the arms for me to like it.
