    I'm thinking of getting a crane tatt on my back shoulder as I'm a crane fighter (defensive, flexible, quick). Also because I think they look pretty. I'd also like a Tigger tatt on my ankle (Tigger rocks!). But like Ceicei, I'm very weary of needles. I'm more into piercings myself. Yes, there is...

    Why Can Jocks get girls so easy and not people in martial arts?

    I was never interested in football players. All the ones at my high school were all the same; big, conceited, and stupid. I was only ever interested in martial arts guys (mainly black belts). I would go to the tournys and drool. LOL My instructor used to hit me for that. I eventually found a...

    Women and Ninjutsu; good idea?

    I think it is as I'm a women and take it. :) My shurriken throwing ability and accuracy are getting better all the time. I was already pretty good about sneaking around and hiding before ninjutsu, so that's a strength. Becky

    Calling all the Men...Why did you start Martial Arts??

    I did! I was very impressed with guy martial artists, especially black belts. Every time I went to a tourny, I gazed open-mouthed at them, drooling. LOL As it turns out, I married a 3rd degree black belt. Since I started martial arts, I was only drawn to martial art guys. Then, I married one...

    What is your favorite art?

    :) Hi everyone! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite art is. It can be an art you take, or just like to watch, or are just interested in. Mine is pry either JKD or kung fu. Both I've watched, and they look very neat and effective. I tried JKD, but just couldn't seem to get the swing...

    Muay Thai vs Taekwondo #2

    If there is a superior art, which I don't believe there is, but if there was one, it'd be JKD in my book. It's formless and does pretty much everything that all the other styles do. It's hard to learn because it's limitless. As for this stupid arguement, I've already posted my views one the...

    How do you weed out the jackasses?

    I'd go to your instructor. If your instructor does nothing about it, you can either leave the school or put up with it. Don't resort to what I did once as a red belt though.... A guy was being a jackass, so I snapped and kicked him as hard as I could. Ofc, I got severely talked to and punished...

    Weapon OF Choice

    SAI! I like the sai because they are easy to manuever, beautiful, and just plain easy to handle. :)

    Which kick generates the most power?

    I was always told the back kick. However, my side kick seems more powerful than my back kick.

    Muay Thai Vs Taekwondo

    First of all, TKD is NOT alot of flashy kicks. True, some TKD is McDojos and flashy kicks, but some like mine isn't. I'm getting so fed up with this generalization. I've beat people from other styles (including a thai boxer) and other people have beaten me (including a thai boxer). It's how good...

    On Using Kata for Self-Defense

    I think kata is useful in many ways. First of all, it keeps the history and the art parts of martial arts intact. They are good for beginners to help them get a general feel for martial arts and help them learn techniques. Alot of the basics are in forms, and alot of black belts do well to...

    Yes Yes we suck.

    So much for getting one's art dissed. Not all TKD schools are McDojos. Mine wasn't. My instructor only charged $35 a month so one can hardly say he was in it for the money. I'd rather stay with my art in the midst of all this crap talk of "all TKD schools are McDojos". That's a false...

    Contact in training...yes or no?

    I always got thrown in with the guys. It's more likely a guy is going to attack me on a street than a girl. I've been hit and sparred full contact. I'd rather learn to take it in the safety of my dojang than have the first time I get hit hard be on the street. Women are just as capable as men...
