Has anyone tried to persuade their significant other to take up the arts? When I was younger I would try but learned that I can't force it upon someone that doesn't want to learn it for themselves. Even thought it would be great to train together.




I got my daughter into it for a while from 10 to 12 but then she quit because she got her own life and friends, school and boys were more important. As for my wife, she hates feet .. no that is not correct ... loathes them. Doesn't like touching them and certainly doesn't want to hold them while stretching or being kicked with them. Her loss.

Man, I go through the same thing. one minute my wife says she wants a man that takes charge and makes decisions and the next she is dictating. Unfortunately, I am too easy going and pretty much go with the flow. Basically, whatever she wants to do, I am game...

I had all 4 of my kids into it. The girls eventually lost interests but the boy and I still do it. My wife..Well, he don't mind feet, but if you barely touch hers she laughs histerically...

Oh man, every poll I try and enter i get a message saying a vote has already been registered from my IP address

Still, i have to say that i have the most fantastic and supportive wife in the world! Her physical capabilities are impaired through long term back problems, so she cant take part in MA with me, but would if she could, and actively encourages me to keep at it. When I suffered a couple of setbacks regarding my old MA school, she was the one who got on google and found alternatives in our area. She often says that 'I am kicking ass for two' . She also loves MA and action movies, can destroy me at Tekken, laughs at my jokes, is a great cook,and all this is wrapped up in a really hot 6ft goth babe. oh boy I am in love!!

In between marriages I (briefly) dated a guy who would do absolutely anything to stop me training. Sad attempts included hiding my gi, phoning me with bogus emergencies as I was leaving the house and once, letting down my car tyres.

nope, and she would never let me big her up like that, but I dont care.

No sisters or clones knocking around either-sorry she's a one off, and for some crazy reason or another married me! There is not a day goes by I dont thank the stars for her poor judgement
