I practice Tae Kwon Do, and I enjoy it. I've been in it for 11 years, and I'm testing for my second degree in this coming March; wahoo. ^^

What martial art(s) do you practice?
I practice Taekwondo, Hapkido and Kendo. I train like every day, all day (literally). Taekwondo I'm a second degree, Hapkido and Kendo I'm a first degree.

Why do you like Taekwondo?

I like Tae Kwon Do for various reasons. I like the fact that I'm able to protect myself; I like the work out; I like the people I meet. Well, most of 'em. ;]

i practice Taekwon-Do, been doing it for 7 years now i think.... and ill be up for my third in feb. of 2010.
@ Felixaran: Do you train at one place or do you go to multiple studios?

@ KelsKay: I like Taekwondo because it works out every part of your body. I like it because it's diverse and powerful. When it's done right it can have amazing results for anybody.

@ Little Taehiko: I'm supposed to be up for my third dan this coming october, but my previous instructor ordered my second dan certificate from Kukkiwon about 18 months late or so, so I'm gonna be delayed for a bit...
@ Leaf Condition: Lol, Judo is great. It's influenced Hapkido a good deal. And Hapkido pwns!
thank you goingd 3nodding

i love to compete in tournaments
@ Leaf Condition: The only competitions I've done are for Taekwondo. I love watching Judo competitions though. Some Hapkido tournaments are kinda crazy.
@ Everybody: Just out of curiosity, does anyone here who trains in any style have good friends in RL that train too? Even in a different style?
