what attracts you to Martial arts??
it seems kinda wierd to me that you can walk into an MA class, and see the hunters mixed in with the prey.
What attracts people to martial arts?
bullies- love to fight. MA, a reason to fight
losers- hate getting picked on, a way to defend from the bully
athletes- a way to stay in shape
couch potato- a way to get in shape
so what is your attraction to MA? what got you started?
me, i guess a few bruce lee movies and lots of power ranger bullshit got me into MA
I like to fight. I don't know why. Not a bully, never got picked on.
I got into it becuase of the teenage mutant ninja turtles. I never really cared about s3lf-d3f3nse or anything.
I got started because I was bored one summer and had little else to do. I've never been much of a bully, nor have I ever really been picked on.
I literally walked into a school having no real idea what BJJ and Muay Thai were, other than "ground stuff" and "kicking stuff."
Muay Thai is okay, but I don't really have time to focus on more than one martial art at a time right now, and BJJ was more fun. So I stuck with that.
I do martial arts because (in no particular order):
1.) I like to be in decent shape and martial arts are way more interesting than riding a fucking bike or moving metal around in a gym.
2.) BJJ is like chess. It keeps me interested.
3.) I enjoy a good spat of sparring with anyone.
4.) BJJ has useful applications outside of fighting. Controlling drunk friends, for instance.
5.) Mostly I do martial arts because I like to come home feeling that "good ache." The one where you earned every single bump, bruise, cut, and sore muscle. It's addictive.
6.) I'm competitive
Didn't we do this thread already this week?
Edit: Also, doing martial arts gets you women. Lots and lots of women. Oh wait, no it doesn't.
NO WE DID NOT DO THIS THREAD THE OTHER WEEK BITCH!!!!!
Yeah, I'm pretty sure we did. And I'm pretty sure the person that did it yesterday PUT IT IN THE RIGHT FORUM.

That and TMNT.
I take that back, kung-fu the series had a big part it in (even though I never studied kung fu).

I think I got into it because of being a MA-movie nerd. But it wasn't the thing that kept me training. I just like to spar and fight in a controlled environment.
