    I say things along the lines of "I do muay thai", which, now that I come to think about it, sounds pretty lame.

    Just say
    "I'm a cagefighter"
    no matter what sort of martial arts you do. I've heard that at bars so many times.

    No, girls aren't as impressed, apparently. Also it automatically makes you more badass than if you fought in a ring or on a mat, because those are for pussies.

    As illiteracy spreads and increasing numbers of nouns become verbs (as in "parenting"), one need only go with the sewag--er, with the flow:

    "She judos. He kyokushins. They MMA."

    Well, according to the less-MA savvy girls I know, I am the guy that "trains in that gay stuff but wins fights with it."

    They also say I "have a drinking problem," but w/e. Or I guess for this thread, I "train in the fine Irish art of drinking."

    I don't live in San Francisco. Thanks for your feedback.

    I also prefer 'training' to 'practice'. it just sounds more serious.

    I say that I am going to training or that I have training that evening. If I'm talking about BJJ then I *do* BJJ.

    I also just realised that if I'm talking to people i train with I'll refer to it as class I.E. See you in class or are you going to class tonight.

    I've always refered to "training" as training. Whether i'm working out in the Gym, Running, sparring or doing MA i'm "training", thats all they need to know.
    I tend not to tell people i work with what I train in, as far as they are concerned I'm just a guy who works out a lot.
