    NON-Martial Arts

    Meh, just a random discussion...there are probably better ways to trumpet my 'return' to the board. (assuming anyone even noticed I went missing heh)

    Buuuut, we all know discussions about which 'effective' martial art people want to take, Judo, Muay Thai, BJJ, Savate, what have you.

    Aaaaanyway, so here's my question: Of the ineffective martial arts styles, what one would you be most interested in practicing and why?


    In my case, i'd have to go with 'Drunken Boxing'

    Why? It amuses me, and Legend of Drunken Master is one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies.

    What about all of you?

    In Manhattan theres a huge Buddhist Temple and part of the Temple is a small group of monks that teach some type of Shaolin martial art. I'm not sure if they teach how to fight all that effectively but the conditioning is on par of Muay Thai. Fore arm strikes to trees, chest and stomach conditioning with a heavy iron mallet thingy, leg hardening by kicking trees and taking staff strikes. Also you learn to do flippy kicks. And come on, if you can learn to do flippy kicks and not be a Tae Kwon Douche bag thats a defiantly a plus.

    Tkd it's five minutes from my house. The next closest ma is the bjj school that I train and It's 45 minutes away, and I hate driving! I also would love to train in the real Shaolin kung fu! and don't bust my balls about the real Shaolin kung fu either, because I know Cung Li has it.

    I've always wanted to do a cartwheel into several backlflips into a triple-flip-kick.

    Of course, I'd probably just look like Chris Farley in beverly Hills Ninja.

    Maybe just throw ninja stars. In a UFC match.
