Growing up with two older brothers who were great was necessary for survival!

I'm the first. Nobody who was in any wars, no former soldiers in my family, I don't even think any of my extended family have ever been in any fights. Holy crap! Now that I think about it, what was I thinking?

I think my grandpa was involved in some police action. Other than that, I suppose we're all just lucky. Or wusses.

as far as I know (from 1830's), I'm the first in the family to have practiced MA. War is very much in my history however. Three generations of fatherless sons due to killed in action during war soon after the birth of the next gen. I stopped that trend by being lucky enough to serve during a cold war (my time was done just before the persian gulf business).

I'm carrying on the enthusiasm for MA to my kids...who knows if it will remain part of their lives-that is their decision.

i am the first to actually commit to martial arts (my dad did maby a year of judo if that) the only other person might be my grandpa who did boxing for a while and someone else in my extended family (havent ever met him) was a golden gloves champion.

My granfather is a karate black belt, and has some training(although i dont know how much)in judo, jiu-jitsu and aikido(but he doesn't train any MA nowadays) my mother and father met each other for the first time in a karate class.
My uncle has some training in some MA, but I don't know which one, and he doesn't train anymore.
I train with the same sensei that taught Karate for my mother and for my grandfather(oldest and strongest man i know)

Hey! I was in Vietnam, and I can kick high.

My uncle was a BB (TKD, in the 50s) and my great-uncle knew savate. My father was in the 101st Airborne in WWII, and was taught a little Yawara. First time I came across that term was a few years ago; it's a precursor to jiu-jitsu. He was awfully good at hitting pressure points.

I'm the first one in my family to take a martial art. (tae kwon do)

My dad did have a respect for martial arts, though, as well as physical conditioning.

My dad was in the Navy, and saw action in the last 2 years of WWII! He also boxed for the Navy. From there he joined the Metropolitan Police and Transferred to the Royal Hong Kong Force, where he served for 25 years. During this time he says he never felt compelled to learn a Chinese MA as he was armed
I am the first in my family to learn eastern MA but my Mum and Dad have always been incredibly supportive.(they bought me a Paul Chen Katana as a joint birthday/celebrate the passing of my first Grading present last year!)
My Dad is 77 this year, still does 20 mins with a bullworker every morning, trains on the heavy bag with me when I visit, and just took delivery of his new KTM Super Duke 900cc sports bike!!
