    So, who here's down?

    I study aikido, and I love it.

    Come to think of it, there was someone on here with an O Sensei quote as their sig.

    i took taekwando (or however you spell it) for about a year. it sucked ass. nothing i learned was useful in a fight, but that's probably because it was at the YMCA and i was in the 4th grade.

    mad props to martial arts. one day if i get a steady job i'll definitely take somethng, because i'm a big pussy.

    jiu jitsu is the best. or off shoots of it. but i guess for hand speed aikido or somthign liek boxing woudl be good. but everythign ends up in the hand to hand combat and if you know judo or jiujitsu, yo uwill win.

    I took Karate for awhile..then stopped when I realized it did nothing for me becuase the Teachers were horrible from what I saw. As for martial arts, I'm looking to take these three at some point, in no particular order.


    I don't remember any karate, but I have learned basic stuff from scrapping with my cousin whos won a few tournaments in tae kwon do. I have a decent mixture of street fighting and grappling(Various chokes and holds I can put on from a few different angles..). Speaking of which, I like grappling, anyone suggest a martial art thats good for learing how to grapple?
