How did you start your MA training
It is a-me ! Mario :D Joking
When did you start ma training and for what purpose ?
Back in 2011 i started shotokan karate so i can lose weight and learn how to defend myself
The dojo wasnt very big , and it used to be really cold in the winter !
I stayed there for about a year then left cause we were advancing too slow
Started Goju Ryu when I started University because it sounded cool and promised weapons, did that for a year, got kicked out of uni, did jkd in some dude's back yard because yay Bruce Lee. Succumbed to the lure of Aikido, went back to uni, continued with Aikido and Fanchento (weird jkd/judo blend), left uni.
Moved to the UK, had 4 years with no training, got pretty ill, lost a ton of weight, decided I needed to sort that **** out, saw some Dog Bros videos and decided I needed some FMA in my life, did some googling and found my current gym (which is awesome btw)
hahaha What a mess , Why did you get kicked out ??

After trying Praying Mantis kung-fu for a while, I ended up joining the wrestling team as a highschool freshman following encouragement from my middleschool gym teacher. I've been predominantly training that ever since, although I have trained boxing and MMA in the years since as well.
The last thing to do is **** the woman who played Sindel and the circle will be complete.
Too much dojo/women not enough textbook. Nothing exciting sadly.

(I started studying, but not actively training in, Historical European Martial Arts about four years earlier for some kind of weak, convoluted reason involving ARMA and Civilization2.)

Kiddie TKD, because "somebody get these damn kids out of my hair for a godamn hour!"
That lasted about two months.
Jr High wrestling team, because a bunch of us were actively encouraged to join after the standardized fitness tests. The standardized fitness tests were silent on the fact that I was 12 years old and 67 pounds, so that about as well as one would expect. That lasted a semester.
Screwed around with guys taking or magazine learning various martial arts, mixed with the tidbits of Vietnam era military combatives we picked up in JROTC, because we we all 15.
Really wanted to take JKD in my early 20's, followed by MT a little later, but too much chaos. Having addicts in your inner circle takes a lot out of you.
Joined Bullshido, got shamed into starting training a couple years ago, been on hiatus for a few months do to moving/knee injuring/house buying/renovating/back injuring. I trained just long enough that it makes me itchy not training.

As I was waking up in mere seconds the old man said "shh stay out!" and karate chopped my neck
Just becareful when you guys get knocked out because when you wake up your butt will be really sore.
edit: Then I started learning Kata
