Do any of you do martial arts?

I started taking taekwondo courses down the street from my apartment a couple months ago. Ended up hurting my toe so I had to take time away, then things were closed again. But I'm going back this Thursday. I did martial arts as a child but didn't really pay attention. As an adult this is an excellent workout and quite an art to perfect. It's been a great outlet for me.

I really love TKD for the spirituality and tradition behind it. A lot of the foundational principals come from Mahayana Buddhism and eastern monasticism.

I also enjoy the videos this dude makes on the topic, and I would lick him all over. https://youtu.be/drmfJVgEBfU

Do any of you practice martial arts?

I tried Karate, Judo and TKD. TKD was by far my favorite. I would do it nowadays (especially because it's the only way I can have fun working out my legs) but it's double the price of just going to the gym and we went under yet another lockdown since yesterday, so no gym for me.

I'd suggest martial arts to anyone who asks, it's a great way to make friends, treat anxiety and work out at the same time. I liked every single teacher I had and the values are super awesome.

Erick probably signed up at a dojo after watching half of the first season of Cobra Kai.

Long ago..before my love for the cock was discovered,I wrestled for about a decade or so. I’m 43 ad have been losing lots a weight. Now that I’m getting healthier I’ve been contemplating bjj, submission wrestling and maybe some boxing and Muay Thai. As a dude who’s had some serious injuries and works with his hands, I’m reluctant in mma r striking. Back in 2011 I broke up a fight and had a knife sever 5 tendons in strong hand. I was outta work for 2 years with surgeries and rehab. Couldn’t run or ride bike either cause it would rupture the tendons. I went from a solid 6’ 200 lbs to 320 lbs. I sold herb and drank beer all day. I always played sports and did t even realize what a slob I was. I am currently 220lbs

I actually was part of a dojo but stop going in like 2010? 2011? I went by the nickname Stingray.

But yes, I do want to see Miguel and Robbie duke it out on the mat, wrestling in the nude for the All Valley Tournament trophy.

I wish I had the motivation and energy to do so. I’m a super low energy person but I did take gymnastics for couple of years back when I was like 9 or somethin. I did try some kungfu, baseball, and other stuff. I liked gymnastics and kungfu the best because I loved how free and active I was and felt.
