    Re: Which martial-art do you favour?

    I do medieval sword fighting Huscarl style (viking broadsword) as a part of my early medieval re-enactment, don't know if it is seen as a martial art, but I personally see it as a martial art.
    there are 2 types of styles of fighting in the viking re-enactment scene; Huscarl style where every part of the body is seen as a hit point and you need to be totally armoured.
    Normal style (aka Jomsborg style) where you are not allowed to strike on head, neck, lower arm, lower leg and hands. This style is commonly used at re-enactment battles.

A boxer that learns wrestling techniques from a peer for example is a much more well-rounded and capable fighter than the typical "Martial Artist."
    If a typical run-of-the-mill street fighting beat out the "martial artist" it would merely speak volumes of the lack of quality and skill of the "martial artist" in question. Anyone can box or wrestle or fight as a crazed mob would. But the true champion imposes his will on his opponent, on his own terms.

    The martial arts are like books; they are tools which in the right hands are capable of producing something great and beyond the ordinary. But it requires a lot of work, dedication, and concentration, plus an almost superhuman will to realize anything close to their full potential.

    Now just because a person went to some martial arts school ($) on the corner for a few years it doesn't by any means make him a martial artist. There are people who naturally belong to a warrior caste and then there are those who don't.

    AW: Which martial-art do you favour?

    I prefer the self defence based arts instead of the budo-sports things.

    I do wing chun and fma. Wing chun cause I like it and fma (in my case a kali style) cause it contains everything, close combat, weapons, groundfighting,....

    Other arts I would do if I had to change for some reason would be Krav Marga, Systema, JKD, BBT, and of course other FMA styles.

    Re: Which martial-art do you favour?

    I study Jujutsu and the Germanic berserker philosophies, in an effort to reaffirm and augment my own natural fighting ability and will.

    Samurai/Ninja are of course revered, so why not find out what they knew and learn it myself and--

    The Berserkers were feared even among the Romans.

    I believe that everything should have a second chance.

    Re: Which martial-art do you favour?

    So far I've tried Wing Chun Kung Fu, and I liked what I saw. However, in the future I want to try out the Krav Maga (or perhaps Shaolin Kung Fu) and combine it with Aikido and the Bone Martial Arts (koto/gyokko ryu). The combination should be lethal. Anyone who is familiar with Tekken should know it as the basis of Nina's style too. It would involve a lot of time and practice though.

    I grew up learning Olympic Karate, but I prefer this martial art.

    Question Martial Arts - does anybody practice one?

    I trained in karate (Wado Ryu and Shukokai) for four years and I boxed for six months at university. Boxing's great fun and fantastic for self-defence, but a little bit rough for my liking - when sparring I'd almost always end up with an injury of some sort.

    I'm now considering starting karate again and training at a local sambo club (Russian wrestling and mixed martial arts).

    Well, I've been lazy for a long time, so right now I'm doing nothing :p. But I used to do Muay Thai (aka Thai Box, but do not compare it with Kick Boxing, althought many people think it's the same ) but I had to stop for personal issues. However sometimes I practice at home.

    I practice BOXE actually.............yes there are many injuries in boxing. But it's natural. And that's the most important thing : you experiment ,on your body, what a REAL fight could be. Many Injuries.

    However i understand your desire of something different form Boxe.........something of more refined.

    In this case, my advice is : KYOKUSHIN ( as tyle of Karate). Is the MOST terrible Karate.........Full contact.
