    Well like the question asks, do you like doing martial arts? I personally like it. I study Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Snake Kickboxing. I'm not enrolled in classes anymore but I still like to do it in my free time when I'm excercising. I really feel great just kicking and punching and such, it's such a good stress reliever too haha.

    So yeah, how about you guys?

    Yes, I love it. I love the release and the confidence it gives - not to mention the whiff of testosterone every time you train. Every guy should do it, in my view.

    HELL. YES! Martial arts are a huge part of who I am and mean the world to me. TKD, Muay Thai, Capoeira, Kempo, BJJ + Krav Maga.

    I did kung-fu years ago. It was the greatest thing I've ever done. Some blood, lots of sweat and tears. Still value the hard - earned lessons to this day. Saved my neck once in the washroom of a club. I still work on the forms once in a while.

    I studied some Kung Fu before and took about 2 years of Tae Kwon Do! When I was around 18-22. Now, not so much anymore, I do still remember certain kicks and punches of how to defend myself though. icon_cool.gif

    Karate and boxing for the most part. I really want to do some weapon training but I need to find a different instructor for that. At least to get me started.

    And yes martial arts is an awesome stress reliever.icon_biggrin.gif

    I never heard of snake kickboxing

    Hehe, i think it is a bit misleading to describe all these many things under one umbrella. If using this term, i guess the main link is that it is about combat, but I think it is a lot more than that. In the training that I have been a part of, there has been a very strong focus on self awareness, world awareness, peace, community, health and healing... These things must be there to balance the combat oriented techniques, otherwise it is like giving a loaded gun to children.

    I have been doing Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu for 2 years (am taking a break from it now). It really takes a long time to be able to use it in any real world situation but I feel much more confident in myself and disciplined. Also, the workout is very intense and will make you strong, and good in bed icon_cool.gif

    I love martial arts. I've mainly studied karate but for these past couple of years, when I have time, I take on grappling.

    I have been in continuous martial arts from the age of 16 training and teaching 4 to 6 days per week I am now 61 even over the last 2 years fighting Cancer I never stopped training as it motivated me through the tough treatments I underwent. At 16 I started Lau Gar and m.m.a kickboxing, did that for 12 years then started my study of Wing chun with Ip Man liniage over the years I have studied most lineages of the system as I consider it a total style to be completed in clue ding all the weapons

    What the fuck is snake kickboxing?

    You should try Capoeira sometime. Damn . . . full body workout, self defense and sick dance moves

    I love practicing kung fu every day! Im outside almost all the time or everyday it's sunny and dry and or humid when its warmer than 75 degrees and I practice hard and I listen to the best music that can get me motivated. And I love to sweat so much in the natural environment of a open park with soft but sturdy grasswith a bit of moisture to it to cool my feet down after being in the sun for so long
