    Anyone else besides me and alphie take any form of self defense? I'm just curious, I always enjoy hearing about other forms and stuff. I'm in Kenpo Karate and a first degree brown studying towards my black and wow is it consuming.


    Anyone else, eh yes?

    I take Taekwondo. Right now I'm working on learning to green belt so I can test on what level I am at in this new school. Tough work and I'm having to gain respect of these instructors at the same time. So, right now I"m only a white belt, but hopefully in a few months I can test to see which belt I am at.

    Other art forms I trained in was Olympic Taekwondo and a form of ancient Okinawan Karate. Instructor's instructor trained in Japan for several years under one of the masters. Shame the school had to change. :(

    I took the same thing and was on the verge of getting my black belt before I dropped out. I had too much to do. It was good while it lasted. But Im a little rusty on most forms by now.

    Lee Chan school of Tai Chi and Kung Fu.

    We have no belts, so I can only say that I have been at it for about five years. I also have 1 year's worth of Karate. I have to say, I do prefer a softer style like Kung Fu over a hard style like Karate.

    Jujitsu until brown belt, then I was a bit ill for a year (mumps menengitis) and never went back.

    I can remember some of it but most is lost to the mists of time. When I get back into shape I may well take up another one, just as something cool to do to keep fit.

    I think I'd like Kung-Fu...

    I used to do Karate. Got up to second degree black belt. I stopped because I had been at it for 7 years and just lost interest. I have thought about taking up another form though.

    I took lessons in Hung Gar kung-fu but didn't get too far unfortunately, it was in a city where my dad was staying with some woman he was involved with. When they split - I stopped getting to go to the lessons.

    Before that I took Taekwondo like every other person in the world and got to...I think blue belt with stripes before some different sort of drama made me have to stop.
