I took judo for a couple of years, then I did some freestyle wrestling on the team at school, now Im thinking of doing some kendo.

My limited judo skills helped me beat some dude who was 55 lbs heavier than me in wrestling.


Anyways judo isn't really helpful in the aspect that it concentrates on very CQB.

I did martial arts mainly because I found it helped me vent my years of bottled-up anger in a way... I didn't do my martial arts out of anger (which you're not supposed to do) but the combat aspect helped me release.

This is an old thread, but I figure why not post on it?

I've been doing Capoeira for about 7 years now. It's not the best style for tournaments or fighting, but its a great art. The combination of gymnastics, martial arts, and dance is a great way to work out your body. Has anyone heard of Capoeira before, or am I the only one here? If you haven't heard of it, I'm sure you've seen it in a music video, movie, or Tekken 3 (Eddy Gordo).

I said it's not the best for fighting, but its not the worst either. I've been in a couple of situations where I've used capoeira to win fights, though if I ever sparred in a tournament I'm not sure how well I'd do. We don't practice strictly for fighting.

I liked that it was a good if not entirely accurite descpiption of our style....GO JU RYU

It does not depend on kicks as much as the article describes but the speed and closeness of combat is correct.

That site had a good description of Aikido. I practiced that for about 12 years, after having first studied Tae Kwon Do and Goju-ryu Karate. We were lucky to have instructor and students who either had practiced, or were still practicing, a variety of styles AND they were not afraid to hold special class so we could broaden our experience with different arts and philosophies.

Somone had asked about photos, so here is a link to some videos taken a friend's school:
Aikido Videos --I refuse to confirm or deny if I am in any of these videos!

I never took any of the martial arts. But I started boxing when I was 5 years old and stopped 15 years later. I love the sport; its given me a lot of self confidence. Its nice to know that you can handle an attack on your person. Im 33 years old now and still work out on the heavy bag. Its great exercise.

My nickname was the locomotive because I never took a step backwards in the ring and always came to fight.

My favorite style of fighting is sneaky... That's why I like capoeira. We do a lot of "malacia" which is using tricky tactics to fool your opponent while you fight (or in capoeira's case play) with them.

Capoeira. There's a description of it on that website of yours. It's a pretty decent description. I put a couple of links earlier in the thread, you can go check them out.

If you've ever played Tekken 3, the guy with the yellow and green outfit and dreads (Eddy Gordo) does capoeira.
