    How has martial arts helped you dance?

    I'm pretty sure we have some smooth moving members out there.
    So please share.

    (That rhymed.)


    Obviously from (proper) training you will receive flexibility, coordination (I no longer trip over my own feet!) and reaction speed.

    I like to do some huen sao's, axe kicks, shoulder checks. I find that my hip flexibility movements are much smoother than many.

    One time I got arrested for drunken disorderly conduct and while I was in lock down I made one of the other guys do the "Tube Steak Boogie" with me.

    Martial arts is dancing, it's just bad dancing because your usually hurting your partner.

    I end doing a lot of my old kata moves while dancing. Not fully, not enough for someone that didn't now the kata to know where the hell it came from.

    One time when I was out dancing, I slipped in a puddle of beer. I did a forward roll and I felt like a complete nerd! However, my friends thought it was an intentional dance move.

    I use a modified bob and weave and a patchwork of shortened kata movements in da club.

    I've salsa danced (I'm of Cuban descent) all my life so I don't think ma has affected that or any of the other latin dances I do. Girls do all the work anyway. :)
