I haven't really done anything. But I was looking to start Kendo or Karate with a buddy of mine.

That's quite a few styles, how do you find the time?

It's good to see that though. Seriously.

Tell me a little about your kumite in your Shito-Ryu classes. Do you guys practice, sanbon, ippon, or jiyu kumite?

What level of body contact do you guys use?


It's a long time ago bro. I been to these Martial Arts over time. When I think about it I tried a bit Kung Fu sword style as well. I'm good at memorizing fast. A good thing. Lately there's been no time for it sadly. :/
I'm just practicing home with the regular front punch. Very slow forward and twist then back. Repeat. Needs a lot of patience and discipline. Hehe.

Ah, weapons. I've never trained in any weapons based arts, so I don't have a solid idea of what's involved. However, that sounds like a good time.

Not too practical on the streets though, no?

Haven't begun practicing a martial art yet, but I always wanted to learn Muay Thai or Capoeira.

Random Karate as a kid followed by TKD for a while. On and off

Boxing. MT. BJJ. Later on. A few years of each.
Want to try eskrima, kali, kendo or fencing. Maybe all four.

I started MMA when I was 16. I decided to try it because it looked so very fun when seen on the tv. And I was right! Started BJJ (Brazilian jiu-jitsu) a year later. I'm 20 now.
The art of combining techniques from various diciplines is inceridibly satisfying when practiced. From the beginning I really enjoyed learning all the new kicks and punches, but over time I've realized that grappling is the part I enjoy the most. Knowing that, if I feel outmatched on my feet, I can take it to the floor and vice versa is what makes the sport so great.

Yeah BJJ is something I want to get into. It blends well with Kyokushin. I just don't have much time nowadays man.

I spent 2 years learning formal TaiKwonDo. And later on learned some Krav Maga. I've always wanted to learn Aikido, Judo and other East Asian martial arts.

Dive right in man. It's a good time all around. Given you have TKD experience - karate would come pretty naturally. Yeah, the stances are a bit lower and yeah, the hands are used more often - but it's not too hard to transition I'm sure.

I'm in Kyokushin. SOOOO. Drop by a dojo, see what you think.

Do you still practice TKD?

Given you have a striking art already - have you considered a ground based art? BJJ? Judo (more throws than ground, I know)?

Muay Thai is pretty immense. I love that style.
