    MA/fighting skills you got from your parents/family

    Greetings,

    in this thread we should discuss whether and to what extent you gained some martial arts background/useful fighting experience from your mama, papa or wider family circle.
    Or whether you first met beating in school and training much later on, like me... ;-)

    For extra fun and info gain here's this sexy poll (we haven't had one for a long time now anyhow):

    A. Yes, my family taught me about realistic self defense
    B. My momma/poppa taught me how to take a beating
    C. My momma/poppa taught me how to beat somebody up
    D. I took martial arts to defend myself from my family
    E. I had a normal childhood and took MA's as a hobby later on
    F. Anything else/Don't care

    My dad studied Limalama and various bits and pieces of different styles of karate. He showed me a few arm blocks and some punches that I practiced over and over again when I was around 9, and he never showed me anything else until I was in high school actually training in martial arts. More recently, he's shown me a few things from limalama, which I'm sure would work amazingly if I were actually in shape.

    My father was a bad ass. He started boxing at the PAL when he was five or six years old, ultimately retiring from the sport with a 37-2 record, mostly winning by KO. In addition to boxing, he wrestled in school, and did a stint as a bare-knuckle boxer. Later, while serving an eight year stretch in a federal penitentiary, he became a powerlifter (PR: 600 lb dead lift). He was my first boxing coach, starting when I was five, and taught me how to lift weights starting on my twelfth birthday.

    Seriously, did you paint that salamander/cold one mini yourself- wicked job.

    My Dad was a pro boxer in the 60's- sort career, but he was a journeyman.
    My brothers and I were his project when were real little until we had sufficinet knowledge to pound eachother but good- then he figured he better take the gloves away. We still scrapped eachother, but without the gloves :icon_razz He showed us lots though, even had us training up to get in shape. Something happened though (maybe his out of control boozing)and we just got lazy and didn't go after it until we were much older though.

    I had an uncle like that- his kids couldn't even play guns at our house. So we carried "concealed " cap guns when he was around.

    - I always imagined that parents who wounldn't let their kids have toy guns would be eventually shot by thaqt same child- Jack Handy:qleft3: .

    My parents are both pianist's. I'd call them hippies but both of them have 2 masters' in music (some combination between composing, musical theory, piano, or something) which they got whilst in communist Armenia. So yeah, their still pansies though. They did however kick my ass up until I was about 11 or something. *sigh* Ahh... what fond childhood memories.
