    _ing _un, by sifu Horvat in croatia. Luckily it was for full 45 minutes. Asked if i can take a punch. First hit, i didn't even feel, so i didn't contract muscles, second also. I said that it's ok if he hits harder! He asked two older member to stand behind me couse i would probably fell down when he hits me for the third time.

    Guess what, hit was stronger, but still no cigar...

    And that was all from _ing _un ever again for me!

    Aikido. It was a good gateway drug into the world of martial arts (I never would have been brave enough to jump right into Muay Thai with no prior martial arts experience), but I should have left far sooner than I did. I started to find it unsatisfying and unfulfulling within a few months, but stuck around for two years.

    Also Krav Maga, but I'd learned my lesson by then and got out while the getting was good.

    I thought Mr. Miyagi was actually a great karateka.

    After the big break from the "Grand Poo-Pa Soke", I almost took akido, the art with the magical pants. Stopped feeling sorry for myself, and got back to teaching my students......

    Why is everyone so on the jock of Muay Thai. I trained with a Bullshido Muay Thai group and then I found a "tae kwon do" school that was actually a kickboxing club. Most thai fighters I meet are just kickboxers with crappy movement and footwork. Thank god for Tae Kwon Do.

    Ha, I use that exact phrase. I just started my kids in Aikido.

    Nothing wrong with learning how to fall.

    Muay Thai is becoming increasingly popular, leading to a certain amount of bullshidofication. This is, of course, a bad thing.

    Like anything else, it's important to do your homework and verify an instructor's qualifications.

    There are probably a lot of "instructors" out there with less experience in Muay Thai than me, and I'm nowhere near qualified to be an instructor.
