As many of you know, I am a type of "Martial Arts Master" or "Human Weapon", and this is about having an interest in any Martial Art you know or want to know. I know Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, (some) Marine Corp Martial Arts, (some) Pankration, Ninjutsu, Krav Maga, and a little bit of Judo. Anyone here who knows any Martial Arts or self defense moves of any kind?

Learning martial arts is something i've always been interested in but never really got the chance.

Think 21 is too old to go to beginner classes, lol?

I was a green belt in Hapkido... Doesn't really mean much in my family. Both of my sisters are 3rd degree black belts.

It was pretty fun actually, I enjoyed it.

Not at all Shona. I knew people in there 20s and 30s that were learning.

Anyhow, I have done 2 different types. One was only for a year and then I moved. The other I did for about 2ish years. So I know a few moves and stuff but I am not amazing at it.

I believe there are no age limits to Martial Arts classes, after, if Chuck Norris is still a Martial Artist and in his 70's Im sure you could be a Martial Artist as well. But younger of course.

Jeet Kun Do and Kenpo is a very good Martial Arts mixture. Good choice.

I practice Muay Thai (some Muay Boran), boxing, JKD and a little bit of fencing. I don't practice them separately anymore, Bruce said:"Be like water." So it's not about the style, it's about the person.
