interests in Martial Arts? Mine is in doing more Martial Arts as I feel up to it. I was in a car accident and it's been a long haul back. But I have done some T'ai Chi on my better days. I hope by summer to be back into daily practice. But basically I like almost anything having to do with Martial Arts. So who are you and what are your interests?

I practice Judo. I'm a shodan. I've been practicing Judo for about 8 years.

That's a good amount of time. For people who are not of your style, what is shodan? What do you like most and what keeps you going? Glad that you responded, please check out some of the other M. A. topics, too. Thanks and take care.

I also enjoy martial arts. I haven't discovered that I have a talent on it until I've tried. I attended a Martial Arts class before. It's a self-defense class actually. During the tournament, I fought against a Taekwondo player and I won. :) I won a bronze medal by the way. Martial Arts is a good way of exercise for me and really increased my confidence.

Wow! I never won anything, but I really like self-defense. I'm glad it increased your confidence. Bronze medal, cool! Thanks for responding and I hope you will continue to help make the Martial Arts topics improve.

But only 2 or 3, who will answer this. Where are all the other people with an interest in martial arts? You know already but for you Writersedge, I will answer again. I do Krav Maga, it is the only one I have ever done, so I don't know how it compares to other older martial arts. I really enjoy it, because it makes me feel confident, that in the event of being attacked I can defend myself. I hope your recovery continues, as I know you love your tai chi and want to do more.

Thanks, it's always good to tell people about your style/interests, even if you've indicated it before, maybe more will follow suit. I think I'm wrong on my number, I think 565 topics, but only 55 people who listed it as an interest. Yes, I do know, but I hope they will all come and introduce themselves, I'd like to meet all 55 on Mylot and maybe get some more here. Thank you for the well wishes. I think I will do well once this rainy weather gets finished, if it ever does this year. Take care

I'd really like to discuss martial arts more, as there is so much I don't know about the other styles. I'm sure the rain will stop soon, at least I hope it does. It's been far too rainy here as well, in Bonnie Scotland.

I would like to learn more, too. We should be on each other's friends list so we can respond to each other's topics. Maybe you can come up with a topic that will help you learn what you're interested in. More people have responded below you, take a look. Thanks.
