Silly question came up tonight as we were cruising EF. How many of you are MARTIAL ARTIST?

Bignuf Bignuf
How many people in the EF community have taken, or take, martial arts of some kind. If you care to say what style, that would be great, just to compare.

Mr. Bignuf has three different martial arts black belts, including TaeKwonDo and Japanese Hapkido. He used to compete a LOT. Mrs. Bignuf has a black belt in Korean TaeKwonDo. Our daughter has a black belt in TaeKwonDo as well.

How about the rest of the EF Family?

If I may be so bold, competency with rifle and pistol qualifies in a literal definition of "martial" art. As such, yes.
As well as foil fencing.

None for me, sorry. I'm more into cardio, so if a ninja came up to me with a sword, I figure I'd just outrun him....

I've always wanted to, but I haven't yet. I plan on joining a tae kwon do class after I graduate this summer.

Aikido and Escrima/Kali. Aikido has a belt system, but I don't really test often. I just enjoy training. Escrima does not have a belt system.

I taught myself a few martial arts moves (practically a required skill in an all boys school) but I've had no formal training.
