The sais, katana, and the flying side kick. :ultracool
To fight like Remo Williams, of course.
When i was kid i was thinking that i will love to be a superman , who help everyone and all people like him . but now i realize that a supper man is just a character in the movie....
I don't know. Because I didn't know one bloody thing about shotokan when i first started.
I only knew that wesley snipes did it. and i wanted to learn that :uhyeah:
I wanted to learn the Vulcan Nerve Pinch...
Sadly, that never panned out the way I wanted it to
The first thing I remember I wanted to learn was the Pinan "dragon breathes fire" intro, and then the whole form, man was I easily amused back then!!
I really wanted to learn to break boards, but quickly learnt that attempting to break boards before instructor says you should is a bad idea.
Boards break you.
the first thing i wanted to learn was the roundhouse kick! i saw it one day and i thought it was so cool looking and now that im a white belt in taekwondo, i can actually do it!
I knew next to nothing about the martial arts when I first started karate. I only knew that it includes cool fighting techniques and I used to fight a lot back then, so I thought it would be great to learn to fight in an advanced way! But when I stepped on the path I learnt much more than fighting techniques.
There's so much I wanted to learn... I wanted to know everything like how to do the katas, learning how to spar and employ techniques, mastering the self defenses, and so much more.
I guess what I really was interested was the JKD portion of the class. I love going through the pak-sau and lap-sau drills. It was so confusing at first, but now it's built into my muscle memory. I loved how fast the techniques were and it just looked so cool!
When I first started Kung Fu, I really wanted to learn sparring techniques. Sparring is still my favorite part of class.
Started in '1989' and I just wanted to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle!!!
first thing i want to learn is doing full split thanks
That's a tough question; all I can remember wanting to learn was simply... everything, ha
But I agree with dodoman- a full split would certainly be nice.
I suppose board breaking was probably on my mind, as well as self defense! And nunchaku, definitely nunchaku. They're pretty fun!
I wanted to break a board and learn the flying side kick!!!
When we started (my family), we had just watched a demonstration on "Wide World of Sports" and a demo at a local dojang that my instructor was starting. The spectrum was almost overwhelming and while I wanted to be able to do everything I had seen I was also too intimidated to even consider what "I" wanted to learn first. Good thing; Grand Master Roberts had his own ideas about what we should learn first.
I wanted to be able to move fluidly like I saw the brown and black belts move!
Heya everybody, I'm Chris and I for the most part I didn't have a 1st thing I wanted to learn. For me what I was looking for was something to do, mental clarity and to prove to myself I could do this and keep up with it. So far I'm new only been doing this for basically 3-4 weeks. I typically hit class 3 times a week.
I wanted to learn how to fight like Bruce Lee. Luckily my dad was into the books and not the movies lol!!!
Flow, i wanted to move like a martial artist ... still not there though ... a long journey
