ITF Taekwondo, Kick-boxing/Muay-Thai, Wushu, Vovinam, Wing Chun, Short/Long Staff.

Despite having an arsenal under my belt, I think I'd stick to the traditional hit and run for my damn life. No sense in getting injuring myself trying to be badass. Learning martial arts is a form of discipline, leadership, and exercise. You have no sense of defense unless you actually apply all the forms and techniques in real life day by day. So simply just 'gtfo' from a potential fight as soon as you can no matter what degree belt you are.

Heed my words or else I'll point my gun at you.

Martial arts in the purest form are truly barbaric in nature, However the birth and the philosphy of it
are the one that is very important in life.

In today's world some martial arts like kung-fu , kun tao, silat are still exists in its pure extreme fighting forms,
while some like Judo , or tae-kwon do or karate-do, wrestling, kickboxing, boxing has morph into more like sports where
there rules ie(no eye jabbing no low blow to groin) can be a sport competition in Judo if you have full throw you have Ippon

I have black-belt in kyokushinkai karate, 3rd level in wing chun, 1st kyu in judo, and 1st kyu in tae kwon do, I also
have studied Jeet Kune-Do.

Have I used it, yes and only for self defense in Asia where i used to lived, discrimination toward chinese, when multiple
people hits chinese people like me , I used martial arts to defend myself

Back in my younger, pissed off days I had a friend teach me counter-punch boxing. Gives me a pretty unfair advantage over most people i've been in fights with which is of course exactly why I wanted to learn. My skills are a bit rusty right now because said friend who taught me got married and we haven't been able to spar much since. In retrospect i'm glad he focused on teaching me defense because getting punched in the face really sucks.

Taikwando and ghetto...

I had the material to get my second to black belt( red or green, don't remember which), but my old teacher retired, sent us to a new teacher. He felt I didn't deserve the rank. I would have had to train three months to get one degree of one belt. That's quite a lot of years. Fuck that. I'm too impatient. Left him.

Ghetto certified. Learned it straight from the northern blacks. Relentless, merciless, down right brutal fighting. Like fight club. All good fun. This whole second piece was a joke, but I did have quite a few rounds with the guys up north once upon a time. Got my ass handed to me, and learned some things you wouldn't believe.

I have a fairly decent amount of experience, if I do say so myself. Not an expert, but enough to survive life in the projects or possibly a war zone. Be careful though. Overconfidence can kill a man in more ways than one.

Muay Thai, but I stopped due to a knee injury. Went onto kendo/tameshigiri (2nd-dan), iaito/kumdo at a separate place, since they aren't as straining on my bad leg, though admittedly I have been shirking on attendance, having moved onto firearms now. There is only one instance that I've had to use Muay Thai in a "fight" (more like me doing most of it, getting bullied, one can only take so much), which ended up with me going to the hospital to receive a prescription for antibiotics and stitches on my right hand after I hit the person's upper incisors. Thankful for being Asian and having high marks, making the administration side with me on credibility of recounting the circumstances.

Greenbelt II in Kickboxing here. Did some Karate Shito-Ryu. I consider starting that up again. I have not yet decided what I want to go in depths with. Nin Jitsu or Ju Jitsu. Also did some Kyong Dang with Kendo sword with original Korean munk clothes. Oh damn I remember that Korea project on my school peforming an artskill of Kyong Dang. I reqad some history of Korea where Korea had war with Japan. Russia and USA made Korea North and South. Much terrible story in human history. Oh, theres Kung Fu and Wung Shu too. Judo sounds fun since of the throw skills.

boxing is my martial art i guess. I only use it to self defend when i have to. I dont really think mix martial arts and all those fancy moves are needed. I quick jab to the rib cage or stomach always takes anybody down. You cant talk every situation down and at times you cant walk way and have to take a stand. There's a saying that "its best for someone to walk away then rather get into a fight", yea i guess that saying is for cowards who mostly keep to them self. I like the saying "you gotta do what you gotta do. More simple and its over. There's a reason why people learn martial arts. to gain confidence and mental and physical strength. But yea that's just my opinion

I take Shaolin Chung Fa and Chen Style Tai Chi we use it as pure self defence but it still not a sport version even out Form are ment for fighting but we are never the agressors. First lessions is just avoid a fight to begin with but one thing i notices is the training involed to do what we do has realy good health benifits and being fit and healthy is never bad i say.

I study Ving Tsun kung fu under the Moy Yat family, and thankfully i've never had to use it in a fight. 100% of the time so far I was able to beat them with mental kung fu, meaning my body language or well picked words were enough to stop the fights from happening.
