Default Martial Arts, Anybody?

does anybody study or practice any type of martial sport? just wanna talk about it here if anyone has the same interests.

i used to wrestle in high school (i consider that a martial art/sport) and i did some filipino martial arts (filipino eskrima - open hand OR w/ colli sticks), i did a semester of kickboxing last fall and currently im studying some jiujitsu which is by far my favorite

i find that practicing the ground moves and submission techniques really feel more "natural" than anything else, simply cuz wrestling was the first martial sport i ever tried. even in my previous kickboxing class my teacher noticed my posture and asked "why you leaning forward? you used to be a wrestler huh?" so the wrestling/jiujitsu martial arts are gonna be the sports i'll be training more avidly.

but i also want to try learning some kung fu, judo, and more filipino martial arts. you can never go wrong with your classic kicks and punches

I havent tried jiujitsu but I think judo involves more throwing with less ground work. Ohh and judo doesn't have any strikes.

jiu jitsu is a lot more technical and aggressive. Judo is more defensive. In judo you use your opponents momentum to injure them and escape or to sustain from hurting yourself.

Ya If you have a problem with your wrestling stance you may have a problem depending on ur sensei, cuz my friends were in wrestling and i pretty much picked up their stance. I don't even know how much push ups I had to do because of it, because judo requires u to stand straight up. Yes judo is more defensive because to me I couldn't really throw till my opponent tried to throw first then I would counter.......

I practiced Aikido for a few years; about 10 years ago. I loved it. It's kind of an aggressive-defensive study. It uses your opponent's momentum,weight and pressure points against them, but at the same time you learn how to hurt them if needed. My sensei taught it in real-world experiences. He taught how to disarm knives and guns and things from people at a close distance. I'd love to get back in to it, and I'm trying to make it so I do within the next 2 years.

I'd also like to try Kenpo. Seems fun.

I've trained a bit in Shotokan Karate. Never went to a dojo, just what I learned from my dad, my uncles and my dad are all black belts.

I've been training off an on in BJJ, haven't had time to fully commit to it yet. I'm also looking into getting back into Karate or possible Muy Thai.
