    Muay Thai

    I've done Shotokan Karate, Kickboxing, Freestyle, Aikido, Vale Tudo and most recently Muay Thai.  My brother is a Kung Fu instructor, so I've learned a bit of Wing Chun and Tiger Crane, although I've never attended formal Kung Fu training. To be honest I'm getting a bit...

    When I was a younger,

    I studied the Korean martial art of Hapkido...funny enough, it was the only sport-like thing that I cared to do. Hapkido is a self-defense martial art that focuses on joint locks, grappling, and throwing...I also had studied using the nunchaku and knife with that martial art...

    I had practiced TKD for almost a year

    and was so excited about my next testing, but the weekend before it, I dislocated my knee and I haven't got back into it since. I'm worried my knee won't let me move sound as much now.

    I trained in martial arts

    for many years. I was trained to use various weapons. It made me healthier, more confident, and an overall better person. Due to several problems, I can no longer train as I once did. I am, however, well trained to use guns and knives of different kinds.

    I trained in martial arts

    when I was younger. I trained in Shaolin Kung Fu for about two years, then Taekwondo for a few years. Shaolin Kung Fu familiarized me with weapons. Despite chronic pain, I am confident that I can still defend myself in most scenarios. I continue to train with knives and guns.
