    Default Are you a martial artist?

    Do you practice any martial arts? Have you in the past? If so, tell us what style and how it changed your life.

    I've been taking Kung Fu for about a year now, and I can tell a huge difference in how 'centered' I feel. My confidence has increased, I feel happier and less stressed. It has become a part of my daily life and I can't imagine ever cutting it from my life.

    I DO find that I'm more alert to potential dangers though, which has found me a few times answering my door with a steel pipe in my hand or taking other measures that I would not have taken before. I can't decide it this is good or bad. :rolli:
    Embrace the possibilities.

    Jiu Jitsu when I was younger. My mom made me (young girl out alone etc) It does help improve your confidence. I'd love to take up Kung Fu, but can't find a good Doko around here

    I took Kung fu for several years. Where I live now there aren't any teachers I would want to learn from or the cost is way too high. I do miss it though.

    Yes. I take a form of Wudan Kung Fu. It gives me great joy and I approach as Art, a painting. It has made me even more aware of the energy in every living being.

    I used to! I got a first-degree black belt in Taekwondo, and then decided to pursue singing. Yup.

    I took karate for years when I was younger, and have developed many thoughts about form and technique since, though I cannot say how applicable they are in real world scenarios.

    I'd like to do further study into the subject. Right body, right mind.
