Brown belt in Judo
Just got my purple belt in JJ and I think thats as far as i'm going to go.
And for a year or so i've been doing recreational kickboxing and trying to mix in Muai Tai because its obviously pretty cool.
I stay in shape like im fighting, but i'm no pro fighter.

No training unfortunately. I'm 25 with the body of a 45 year old. Too many physical problems to possibly train effectively. Some bad joint problems, back problems, arthritis.... My mind is the only thing still holding strong.

I here this, 26 two hernias and a bad back. I did take boxing growing up mostly because it was the only thing available growing up in a small town and alot to the people taking drove quite aways to participate.

I'm amazed that I'm one of 4 TKD practitioners that I know of on here.

Ignore the TKD hate guys, I'm sure none of you go to the type of school that gives TKD a bad name.
