    Martial Art and Mental Disorder

    Thank you everyone. Shadow and harlan, You are perfectly right. Thanks for the advice Jks and Xue, I've tried talking to my doctor, but every time I mention my karate related worries and problems he looks at me like he thinks I'm a fool and he ignores the point I'm trying to make. I've kind of...

    Martial Art and Mental Disorder

    I'm in a painful situation. I've been suffering from bipolar disorder (a condition characterized by severe and frequent mood swings and in some cases suicidal ideation and psychosis) for years. I started karate four years ago at the age of 14 and it helped me immensely. I love every aspect of...

    I learned M/A because...?

    I started because I wanted to learn how to fight, but I was soon attracted by the spiritual side of MA. It is now a part of me and the way I live my life.

    Brown Belt - What do you expect?

    Well, more than a month has passed since the original post and I am pleased to inform you all that I passed the test and am a brown belt now. You posted very useful replies to my questions. I no longer have that feeling of uncertainty, but am as eager as ever for learning new stuff. Btw, I was...

    Psychic Karate - No Contact KO - the evolution of karate

    Very unlikely. Pressure points are okay and if you believe in Ki you would believe that a gentle-looking strike might be vital, but no-touch is just...

    How do you find Time & Energy for MA?

    Well I'm not THAT busy in the current stage of my life. The only other occupation I have other than MA is school, but I think if I were an adult with all those responsibilities, my answer would be exactly the same as Chris Parker's.

    Brown Belt - What do you expect?

    Hi I started Karate less than 4 years ago and I have my brown belt test coming up in about a month. I should be happy, but I'm not. I don't think I'm ready for it. In other words, I don't think I deserve it. It's a new stage. It's the last coloured belt (before black I mean) and I can't help...

    Team kata and its difficulties

    More than a month ago, my best friend (we can call her Z) told me that sensei wants to put her in a team with anothr girl called N. But a team needs three members and they still hadn't found the third person. There were a few options but they weren't sure who to select. I really liked to be part...

    Minor rant

    It must be really painful. I'm so sorry that there is nothing I can do except praying for things to get better for you. :(

    what being a true martial artist is about

    I suppose it differs from person to person, but MA has helped me become a MUCH better person. I wouldn't be who I am today without Karate. Maybe it's because of my age, or the state I was in when I started.

    Team Kata

    She's not very confident either :( We had our first team practice yesterday. It was a lot of fun. We ran together, warmed up together and practiced Jion together. We were trying to do the moves with the same speed and everything but weren't that successful seeing as it was our first session...

    Team Kata

    Some really great posts there. Thanks guys. You're right Bill, it was very immature of me to call my team mate selfish, but I really didn't mean it in a nasty way. What I meant was that she might not have the right attitude for team work and it worried me. But we all have our faults and maybe...

    Team Kata

    Here I am with yet another problem! Well, not exactly a problem, but something that gets me thinking a lot. My Sensei has decided to put me in a team with two others. One of them is my best friend and I get along okay with the other girl, but I think she's too selfish to work well in a team. I...

    Can someone be a good surgeon and a good MAist at the same time?

    Hello I need advice again and I'm counting on experienced martial artists on MT to help me in making a really tough decision. I'm a 17 year old (18 in 2 weeks) karateka. I started my MA journey little more than three and a half years ago, but it has become an inseparable part of my life...
