Started Aikido when I was 12,
did that for about 5 years
then when I was 16, I started Karate too.
but after a year of karate
I quit both aikido and karate for soccer,
[which I hated, and hated myself for doing]

...oh and I also did about 2 months of foil fencing, but that doesn't count to me...

I am still hoping to get back into some martial art,
but am no longer near my old dojo and have yet to really do much research about any local dojos.
exept i'm pretty sure that one is a mc dojo.
Oh, I also think that an other one only exists in an alternate univers.
There must be some kind of glitch in the matrix to make it show up in the phone book,
because I drove by about 4 times and didn't see it.

Suggestion: Walk by and ask if there is a martial arts studio in the area. Some of the good ones hide pretty well.

That was the case a couple years ago in the Adirondacks where I was spending the summer.

13 years, the last few have been crushed by work and study.

Starting a new training binge soon.

I started TKD in Feb. 1991. I have dabbled in a couple of other arts (Tai Chi, Kali, Eskrima, Arnis) but my main focus is TKD.

Hello Mr. Morris:



Any chance the poll could show the Usernames of folks in the different experience categories? Seen that done on other lists/sites unsure if possible here???

I would have liked to add my vote to the 36 to 40 year group but the past 2 years my workouts have been so seldom....I decided to stop my count at 34 years.
Still waiting for the new hip replacement procedure because maybe it will allow me to get back into it when it is fixed. SURE HOPE SO....I miss workouts like crazy.

Nice to be able to chat with you all now and then though.

I'm in my 20th year of formal training in Okinawan Karate after 2 years of wrestling. I was fortunate enough to have been able to gain a solid foundation for several years before that since my father had trained in Okinawan Karate many years before. He taught me how to protect myself as a child and we both began our formal training in my teens.
