Martial Arts IRL
I was just wondering if people here on NB only enjoys watching fictional characters figthing in manga or anime. Or if anyone actually do any martial arts IRL. Which one? What do you find appealing about it? What does it "give" you? etc.
When i was a kid(5-11) i was a greco-roman wrestler, but that got to onesided for me. Then i tried a bunch of other MA's for some short periods, like BJJ, Boxing and Judo. None of them really did it for me though.
today im 19 and i have been doing MMA for quite a while(1½ years) now and think my self to be pretty good at it. :D
The thing about MMA that really does it for me, is that it's all kinds of MA's all mixed into one sport. Whether if you are a grappler, striker or whatever, you can participate and become succesful.
It has really given me a lot too, i've become physically fit, more clear minded, more fearless and competive minded.
So.. What about you guys?
