Why does everyone think I suck when they havent even seen me do martial arts before.

Dude, you posted a video.

I appologise for the crack about imagining kissing a girl. It's just that in my limited experience imagining something whether it is fighting or kissing a girl is often very different than what you imagine. Sometime it's better and sometimes it's much worse.

I would encourage you to work with the best teacher you can find. Listen to him or her. Then practice hard and stop listening to your parents music.

Good point forgot about the video ha. Yeah I think today I am going back to kungfu. Its going to be hard tbough because I have football right before it and thats why I have had a break. I am planning on training hard in about 12 days when it is over.

Do you think I should make my own form using moves I need to work on? or should I stick with practicing the forms I already know?

Did this ever materialize?

I did this when I got my black belt. The katas I liked practicing were Bassai, Jion, Unsu and Heian Godan.

My personal kata had a similar embusen to Jion, with a lot of seizing and balance disruption leading into strikes as opposed to joint manipulation leading to strikes you normally see in kata. It had a lot of fast series of strikes. I'd say it was more Chinese in flavour than Okinawan and Japanese. It was a collection of the most effective self defence and fighting techniques I knew.

I wish I remembered it. It was surprisingly good, but I doubt it ever had the content of an original kata. I didn't know enough then.

A valuable exercise though. Perhaps we all should do something similar even if we aren't kata guys. Like in a flow drill with a partner etc. Anyway, the exercise helped me to understand more bunkai and concepts like evasion and distancing.
It takes a village to stone somebody to death.

I am sticking with the forms I am learning now. I have been learning like 3 forms at one time, so I need to work on those.
And when I finish learning them, I am going to go back and practice the ones I do know.
