Anyone here a practioner of martial arts? If so please include reasons why. I looked at the thread titles in this section and i just wondered why someone hadn't done this one earlier. I'll start off:
I first started martial arts with Wing Chun Kung Fu nearly 4 years ago when i was 15, but i rarely go anymore.
Now once in while my dad drags me along to private lessons of tai chi (CMC style) since he's obssessed with it for the past few years. It is definitely good in many ways (and bad in my eyes) but i'm not really that much into it since i'm such an impatient and lazy type of person.
The reason i like martial arts is because there is often such diversity of knowledge in the realm of martial arts. It taught me things i would never have thought of about the human body and 3d dimensional space (could be that i was an unco hahaha)and it's helping me feel more and more secure with myself. I would have started much earlier in life because i was bullied a lot by racist kids but i was really embarrassed when my brother laughed his head off when i asked my mum to sign me up. It's funny how a few seconds affected my life so much, if he had walked past already i would be a very different person.
Enough rambling from me, i want to hear what other people have to say
