    I think the main thing is that the rule-sets for most FMA competitions blow. They aren't fun.

    I despise wekaf armor so much. the annoying helmet and bulky ass armor.

    Give me gloves/fencingmask and livestick/paddedrattan any day of the week.

    Bruises, callouses and broken bones build character

    d) How long is the class?
    A) Depends. I train in both a private group (that's 5 people) and in the gym, that has from 3 to 15 people depending on the day.

    B) About 60% I believe.

    C) None, I've never met a Filipino that lived here.

    D) One hour long.

    For those taking FMA as their first and only art, how did they decide it as their only art?
    FMA for me was the first but not the last art, after enjoying it so much I started looking for other arts too. After passing trought a few Kung Fu, Karate and other stuff I finally settled with BJJ.
