I train in Muay Thai/kick boxing, Jui Jitsu/grappling, Judo, JKD, Combative Arts. I have no competative record and am not sure if I will compete or not, maybe one day.

Black belt in Wado-Ryu Karate, ventured a little into Taekwondo, Wu Shu, BJJ and kickboxing.

I have no aspirations to do this professionally. Heh. Maybe if I get better in MMA I might consider stepping into a ring once, we'll see.

I have no martial arts background whatsoever. Most memebers of my family have a background in a martial arts accept for me. Ironic really considering that it's only me and a couple of others in my family that actually like MMA.

So far, I have only attended a couple of MMA classes recentl for the sake of curiosity. But the more I watch MMA the more interested I get in BJJ. I've been watching tons of videos on youtube from Bas Ruttens to Submissions 101. And i've been recreating the moves i've learnt on friends. It's fascinating shit. I honestly don't know if i'd go as far as to have fights. I think that takes a special kind of person and shouldn't be pursued just because I happen to watch UFC.

Otherwise, I would say that i'm more of a couch warrior than any of the other stuff you have listed and am more than happy to just be a fan of the sport.
