Did Shotokan Karate for a while, got a black belt. Probably the easiest martial art to get a black belt in, though.

More than once!

Kickboxing, Self Defense, Kobudo, Taekwondo, Kung Fu and currently just Boxing. Thanks to my moves from one city to another, I have learnt so many different kinds of martial arts. Some were for a long while, but each practiced at least one year.

No, but I'm actually starting a boxing and MMA class this week which I am both very nervous and excited about...

Not unless you count pissing around with a wooden sword that I got from the Robin Hood thing in Nottingham when I was 10 as a martial art, no I haven't.

I used to fence if you call that a martial art. Not very practical! But good fun and it does improve your reflexes and balance.

That is a Phillipine martial arts with focus on weapons, am I right? training with weapons is so exciting, what a pity that I had to quit because of the coach's injury.

I did Thai boxing few years ago. I got busy with work so couldn’t do it anymore. It was just for self defence.

uhh to be honest man I do and I don't regret it. I kind of dropped it gradually when school and GCSE's began picking up, plus I was diagnosed with insomnia, so I don't think I left on bad 'terms' (idk how to phrase it; I didn't leave because I was actually lazy at the time or because I did anything bad, it was just too much). So for that, it's hard to regret it necessarily because it was probably for the best.

But yeah, I can see myself going back maybe. I'd like to focus now more on the gym and kind of casual working out for my body more than the competitive side of training though. Maybe when I hit university after the gap year, but right now just coming out college I need a rest man :cry2:

Yes, I did karate for 10 years. Shotokan karate for 2 years, and then I switched to Wado Karate for the other 8 years

Yup, we train using wooden sticks in the classes, yeah its really cool, like a different feel to the martial art entirely.
Oh dear, will you start martial arts again?
