What kind of martial art do you train?
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Right now I'm off (lack of sufficient funds). At any given time though I've trained Wrestling, Hapkido, a wee bit of Taekwondo(which turned into taekwonDOH because I found it useless), MMA(bjj, boxing, etc...), and Haganah. When I'm ready to burn money again I'll go back to Haganah for another 6months to a year, more for refresher than anything else. I had thought about doing more BJJ, but after careful thought on what I already know I decided against it. I figure the whole concept of bjj is great on a mat and it really works...but in a street fight rolling around on your backside is BAD bigtime. Asphalt, concrete, etc... all TEAR you up. It takes your mind off what you should be doing and instead you end up more concerned with all the beating you're giving yourself on the ground.

Using materials i received from another to start doing a slow intro into tai-chi.
I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.

None anymore. Thinking about starting up Tae Kwon Do or Kickboxing again. Maybe find something else. Anyone know of a good instructor of something unique in South Florida?

Does wrestling with Crackheads, Drunks, Psychos and complete moron's in a county jail count? If so then I have a black belt in that....
