    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    is fightin' in yer blood?

    had an interesting realization at xmas dinner. even though i too am a dirty heeb, we tend to visit the side of the family that isn't for xmas dinner. hey, food is awesome.

    anyways, that's when i put a bunch of things i knew together, and realized one thing... suck or rock at them, i love martial arts, and around me were:

    my father: did TKD back when he was in his late teens training with full contact sparring with no protection
    my uncle (dad's brother): judo for 8 years
    another uncle (mom's brother): was a ke?po instructor, apparently not of the lolke?po variety, given he called my initial TKD training "***** soft ****"
    my OTHER uncle: had a small stint as a pro boxer, currently a boxing coach

    so... hrm. i don't think that is a REASON why i love to train, but was interesting to think about for a sec.

    i have uncles and grand parents in the military and with amateur boxing / sambo experience, but thats about it.

    however i come from a family that didnt preach "violence is never the answer and will only lead to more violence, if someone is bullying you then tell your teacher, be the bigger man"

    Instead they taught me an eye for an eye, and fully supported all the training i went for, bought me a rough denim punching bag that rubbed the skin off your knuckles when you punch, and stood by me at school when i said i punched someone in the jaw in self defense.

    thanks mom and dad.

    ah, in my case, mom was (and still kind of is) against me training. never was given the chance as a kid, she said it would make me violent.

    finally started at age 17, when a TKD school opened up near my house. dad signed up with me, so she couldn't say anything.

    what's funny is i would've probably gotten into fights easier before i trained. i'm generally a lot less stressed, and deal with anger way better now.

    i must agree, some of the nicest people i have met were at MA clubs, i had the opportunity to work with Miloud Ait-Hammi, a Moroccan boxer that fought in the Athens Olympics, he was a very patient and mellow guy, got me interested in boxing so here i am.

    on thread, though, my uncle has an 8th degree blackbelt in jujutsu, a 6th degree blackbelt in judo, a 7th dan in isshinryu karate, a 3rd dan in aikido (who has explained to me why aikidoka are crazy/how impractical it is for self defense) and has coached/taught sambo for probably about 30-40 years now.

    My padre was a Marine, as was my other uncle.

    Thats about all there is in my family, martially speaking. My dad is just starting to enjoy the sport of MMA, but disliked the 1993 variety. He's not sure why i want to be a fighter, though.

    I'm basically the only person in my family who trains, unless you count my cousin, whom I only recently got to start training Muay Thai.

    I am not a natural fighter; I just don't have the fighting instinct in me. I've never been particularly good at it, and I have no desire to get into fights. But I guess those are good enough reasons to train. Meaning, because they're not natural abilities of mine, it makes sense to work to improve those skills. I guess I also just found that I enjoy the social aspects of training more than going to a regular gym, and I like seeing myself make progress at it, even if the progress is slow.

    My family were a bunch of pussies.

    Parents are musicians (mind you though, insanely fucking talented), grandparents were white/blue collar workers of the state (moms side) or artists, film makers, actors (dads side). Most of the men have been to the army and... well yeah.

    I guess I'm trying to break the mold a bit because most of the people in my family know dick about fighting.

    ... I should've fucking learned piano *head wall*

    My father boxed, as did my cousins, who also did krotty. I think an uncle also may have boxed.

    My grandfather was in the army, as was his father, and his father, and his father, etc.
    My other grandfather was a police officer and his father was in the navy.

    Does military service count? Or is this just martial arts?
