    *What part of the country do you live in?

    Washington, DC metropolitan area.

    *What's the distribution of MA schools in your area, with a rough percentage of the arts represented?

    Mostly Karate/TKD/Hapkido, but with everything else represented. This area is an amazing resource of arts from around the world. You just have to know where to look. Try YMCA and oddly enough fire departments for the odd stuff.

    *Are there any unique/uncommon martial arts offered in your area besides the normal TKD/Karate/etc, including MMA/NHB fight teams?

    Off the top of my head:

    Boxing (DC is an amazing boxing town, but you have to go across the Anacostia river to find the gyms. Sugar Ray Leonard comes from there)
    BJJ
    Kali
    Kenjutsu
    Kyudo
    JJJ
    Judo
    Muay Thai
    Sambo (one location, and the place also does Judo and Jiu-Jitsu and is frequented by an amazing number of FBI agents)
    Silat
    Wushu (incredibly well coached)

    Various embassies often have martial arts groups too.

    *If you had to guess (unless you know for some reason) what percentage of people in the general community in your area are active participants in the martial arts?

    Impossible to tell. Way too many Soldiers and agents in this town. All the kids seem to do karate/TKD and soccer though.

    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Bratislava, Slovakia, Europe

    As a capital city, we pretty much have everything covered - kung fu, including tai chi, karate, judo, wrestling, boxing, trad. Japanese ju jutsu as well as BJJ, MT, kickboxing, MMA, Philippino MA.

    My guess and experience is most people gravitate towards the no sweat styles with a nice story and masters pictures on the wall, but being in Central Europe there is a nice fighter scene too - Slovakia produced several MT champions on international level, for example.

    My BJJ instructor is the only brown belt in BJJ in the country (actively teaching, there allegedly is a brown or even black belt now, who does not teach publicly), which speaks about the amount of people training.

    Neighboring (larger) countries like Poland or Hungary have a far more dynamic fighting scene.

    *What part of the country do you live in?

    North Carolina, Raleigh Durham area.

    *What's the distribution of MA schools in your area, with a rough percentage of the arts represented?

    It is pretty balanced with Boxing, Judo, Kung Fu, Karate, Aikido, Ninjistu, BJJ, wrestling clubs, and Fencing all represented, but the majority seems to be TKD.

    *Are there any unique/uncommon martial arts offered in your area besides the normal TKD/Karate/etc, including MMA/NHB fight teams?

    Hung Gar if you care to take a drive, shuai jiao, and there seems to be a large amount of Judo places. I count 5 within a 20 minute drive of me. 2 being in cary 2 in Raleigh and 1 in durham. (Though 1 of the Durham, Raleigh, and Cary are under the same Dojo Name just different locations.)

    Oh and They are building the World Tang Soo Do Headquarters here so It should be interesting to see how that messes with the landscape.

    *If you had to guess (unless you know for some reason) what percentage of people in the general community in your area are active participants in the martial arts?

    I would have to say about average. one out of even 10 or so if I had to guess.

    Ha! I used to live in Ann Arbor. While AA is a wonderful town, it's kind of a wasteland for good martial arts. A couple of BJJ and Judo places, but for the most part, it's ninjutsu and aikido and kung fu as far the eye can see. And a lot of places that I would classify as flat-out cults.
    There's a muay thai club that practices at the CCRB at UM, by the way. I can get you in touch with them if you're interested.

    dude, seriously????
    do you have some kind of rare disorder that makes you experience irresistible nostalgia for the summer of '03?
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
