    Default Southern Preying Mantis Kung Fu

    One of the rarest forms of marcial arts. Only 6 classes in the world. I take the class in Omaha. You don't have to be big and strong to take the class but they do build muscul streagth. When you reach a high rank, you'll stand a chace again people 2x bigger then you. Do you take marcial arts?

    No I'm not. It's focus is weak pionts. As long as someone feels pain, this form of kung fu is very effective. Don't believe me. Look it up on google or somethin'.

    Why study a style someone made up? If I get into fights (rare thing, I'm usually away from action) I make up my own techs, which are usually defensive.

    I took taekwondo in 5th grade, got up to a yellow-tip (gasp! that's the halfway point to a yellow belt!) and then quit

    I'm really good at perserving and sticking to my commitments

    dude, I feel sorry for you. But your mum isn't like mine, probably. XDD One time I was throwing ORANGES and POTATOS at cars because I live on a huge street where alot of cars go to. Then my mum came by and I hit her car in accident and she chased me up to The Fruit Stand, me screaming, "DON'T HURT ME! PLEASE MUMMY!" And Lindsey was like, "O_O Dude..."

    I know some Tai Chi, Muay Thai, and a whole shit ton of Kendo. My dojo was actually in the AUSKF, and we ranked fairly high; we had to learn how to fight with our bodies as well as our weaponry. In tournaments you rarely ever see it, but when you spar and the rules are loose, bouts can sometimes go on for 30 seconds to a minute, where footwork and balance come into play hugely.

    I miss it but it was fun while it lasted.

    At the moment im doing Judo, in conjunction with cardio boxing, four times a week. I briefly tried Aikido, Shotokan Karate and Kombatan in 2003 while also doing cardio boxing (basically real boxing but without sparring, teaches me the technique anyway). Then I took Krav Maga for a few months, which is a self-defense system developed by and for the Israeli military, interestingly enough, though the civilian system has the killing techniques omitted. The striking we did was taken from boxing and Muay Thai, but the most important techniques are the various disarms against edged weapons, blunt weapons and firearms, and escapes from different holds. Every "self-defense expert" and their dog always says how this and that disarming technique would never work "in the street," which is right before they start telling you about their 'revolutionary' street fighting system which allows you to disarm and kill a 10 man armed gang with your dick.

    I stopped Krav Maga because the instructor in charge of our group had to quit, and I wasn't assed waiting for a replacement, which was apparently going to have been awhile down the track, anyway. The best thing about KM was probably the disarms and escapes. I'm continuing with boxing and I chose Judo to replace Krav Maga because it's realistic and effective. The reason why it's realistic and effective is because you actually use all the techniques with full force against resisting opponents who are doing the same to you. That's a lot better than doing kata.

    I'll probably be cutting back on my Judo / cardio boxing regime even more than I already have once I get into a full time job by the end of the year.
