I was just wondering, what with all the shenanigans going on in the world and all.
Yep, trick.. being proficient with a firearm is indeed a martial art, by definition. As you were and or continue. This will be fun.
A little wrestling and boxing.
Nothing too in depth.
Nope, but I wish I did. I am a pretty decent shot though, and I do practice with my guns quite a bit. Once school starts back up I visit the range 3 days a week.
Lots and lots of jiu jitsu. It's fun and older folks can still do it.
I have watched the Karate Kid multiple times.
Does Berserking count?
I've trained in Judo and Karate since I was very young.
I do not practice regularly recently though.
Grab me and find out.
Lol now thats funny
Tae kwon do
Boxing was all I was ever taught growing up and I did it through high school. Not really a martial art but it does help against the average guy with 0 muscle memory in a fight. Just stick and move!
I am not trying to put anyone down as I know there are skilled martial artists that would beat my a@# but many who claim to be trained in some form of martial arts go down with 2 hits. I will take the boxing and wrestling I did growing up anyday over being confident my ability to jump high and kick will save my butt.
My experience with "trained" martial artists is limited though. Seems that those who really are trained do not brag but those who are mall ninja types brag about their skills to no end. And then get knocked out with a quick jab.
I used to do medieval martial arts before I got too old and too smart...
Yeah, I've seen that too, but they're also still grinning ear to ear.
I took some Bujinkan for a while. I moved so I ended up having to stop. It has a lot of very interesting tactics. It even helped a lot with my firearm stances.
You are correct .
I have found that several viewing of 'Karate Kid' sufficient training . But for your 'Advanced Degree', it be mandatory that it be combined with in-depth study of, Wiki How ... " how to Thwart an abductor ".
Lol of course not.
Like all my gun writing heroes, I'm fat as all get out and have a gun!
Psyke! Of course, it's so stupid to care so much about guns and not do anything to train your body.
I work out regularly, cardio and lifting. I western box and spar Chinese kick boxing. Looking into BJJ but not a fan of the mma scene and don't want to learn in a mma based gym.
TKD since I was 9 years old - a bit out of practice but plenty able to throw a punch or kick, started taking BJJ lessons last year but my work schedule changed and had to drop out. Would like to find a BJJ gym that could work with my schedule, but that's unlikely. Work is why I stopped attending regular TKD classes - I don't typically get off till 7PM at the earliest and some nights I"m not home till 3AM.
If I had to pick one "art" to learn for real self defense, it would be a self defense oriented BJJ class. There's a number of them around - for those on the east side the Anibol Lobo BJJ academy in Gresham would be good to look into. If you can find / afford a Gracie affiliated school that'd be the ticket for defense oriented BJJ, but places like Impact JJ also have a good SD focus in addition to their competitive training.
