The scale given has a max of 'over 40 years', so I'll leave it at that.

I belonged to the generation that USED to disagree with Bruce Lee (when he was still with us and I was a student in London) in opening up to westerners

I noticed there is one other dino around here; wonder who that is?
I'll rather be happy than right, anytime.

WOW! A Stampede sighting!

Started in 1997 I think. Can't really remember.

Started MT at the age of 8 for fun. The training there seemed more interesting than other camps, so I signed up.

Then expanded into some Kung-fu. Recently got black belt in Kickboxing and jujitsu.

Tried quitting MA a month ago. Today, I signed up for a tournament. Seems, I can't quit.

Didn't know quite how to calculate this, but I've done it as follows...

1 year Judo 1981, 3 years Renshinkai karate 82-85.
15 year rampage of drink, drugs and rock and roll.
5 1/2 years Kenshukai karate 2000-2006.
1 years Goshin-ryu Jujutsu 2005-2006.
1 years Combat Arena 2005-2006.
8 months Shorin-ryu karate 2006.

That works out at about 12 years 2 months. Nothing to write home about.

Mine is also difficult to calculate!

I started about 1968, + did nearly 6yrs of judo

I also spent the next few decades doing martial arts on horseback.. [which I haven't counted in my tally] and I'm *still* doing it!

I started karate just on 6 yrs ago

plus add to the total a year and half of WMA/medieval MA just for kicks!

If you counted what I've done with the horse related MA the grand total would be well over 40 years.

Welcome to the 'WO40 Club' -- Well Over 40 Club.

The inaugural meeting is fixed for 31 September 2006 and the safest place on Earth at the moment appears to be MiddleEarth, partly because no body, especially the 'you-know-whos', knows where it is. I am using part of Ed Morris's 1m to go there, wherever it is at.
I'll rather be happy than right, anytime.
