Thanks Japangirl for your answer.

Back on the orginal topic, as for Martial Arts Family, I would be the first that I know of. I had my daughter in it as well for a year and a bit but when she hit 12 that was it ... spending time with friends, shopping, talking on the phone, etc. all took a priority.

I wrestled myself through Junior/High School which I found as an asset when taking up Taekwondo blended with Hapkito and Jujitsu.

Who knows, some of my ancestors could have taken martial arts. I'm such a mish mass of people. Father is from England. His mother has English and French background. His father's family are from Canada and their family is from Scotland.

My mother was a little harder as she was a foster child. After extensive tracking and finding family members we found out that her father came to Canada and landed in Vancouver where he settled and had kids. Then when his wife went crazy and took off he gave all of the kids up for adoption. Never found anything on her mother but her father was from Russia. My mother's aunt gave information about the family and it appears there is also Chinese and Mongolian backgrounds.

We all probably have similar mish mashed information making us up.

as far is i know i'm the first to take any training in eatern martial arts when i was younger (judo for a short while and i trained in karate for about 5 years and got to brown belt before i gave up because my dojo overloaded with little kids and i seemed to be doing more press-ups than punches). my uncle was in the army and was stationed in northen ireland through a fair chunk of the 80s i beleive.

right now i'm looking for an Iaido or budo dojo that doesn't mean i have to take two trains to get to it lol. i might do akaido, i'm still deceiding.

As far as i know, i am the only martial artist in my family. I think there is some military history in my family, but i never really find out. i am trying to teach my nephew karate but i am having trouble.

Interesting idea. However, I was and am the first in my family going back 150 years +/-. Basic military training, not included... but aside from myself, nobody I've encountered was a martial artist before myself... after me, who can say

Several were/are teachers though perhaps I need to look more carefully....
