Martial Art Furs

Heya everyone out there, just a little forum for the furs who train, teach, or love martial arts to get together and talk! I understand that martial arts isn't the most "popular" sport and I'm wonder who else out there loves the discipline! Martial arts can be many different things. It could be close quarters combat, it could be melee or ranged weapons, or it could even be artistic forms! Everybody is welcomed wether you practice or not!

Heya, I've done quite a few different martial arts in my youth, judo, taekwondo and more recently iaido and kenjutsu.
Fun times, might start looking for a new club soon.

Awesome, what type of discipline are you looking for now?

Idk if this counts in this context but I've picked up archery since... yesterday.

Id say that archery counts as martial arts anything that includes martial or simple weapons counts.

Why did you want to get into archery? I did it recreationally when I was younger but it was never a hobby of mine.

Mostly just for recreation and some exercise. My bow is pretty easy for me to pull back (only having a draw weight of 22lbs and I could probably do >40 easily) but well, I only got yesterday and I've already lost one of my arrows.

Ive been doing non-traditional tong sudo, Chinese kenpo, and Jujitsu for 10 years. I had been wanting to get into some type of weapon forms, but the pandemic has stoped that so I wanted to see if I could do Shi-Choo from star wars if that counts.

Ive always been a huge fan of star wars and I wanted to just dip into weapons to see if that was something that I would be interested in

I've seen Shii-Cho before and it looks kick-ass. There used to be a teacher who did teach it in my old dojo but I never tried.

Ive found this youtube channel where he posts videos about the different saber forms in star wars.

My parents pushed me into martial arts when I was young. I didn't want to do it though.
I got to red belt before they finally caved and made me stop doing the things I was miserable doing...
What's worse, after the divorce, my mom hooked up with the instructor... :(

Bo staff and tiger style were my favorite. And pin-sparring. Where you clip these things to your shirts and have to pluck them off while you spar.

I do, I've been practising kung-fu since I was about 15! Specifically I learned Mantis style kung-fu, though lately I've been learning drunken style as well for fun. <smiles proudly> I've always had a feline agility, balance, and reflexes, so it was a natural fit I gravitated towards. I also do stick fighting and some sword training, though I prefer the smaller sticks and swords (3 foot) over the longer weapons.

Thats cool, I've generally stuck with the more fluid Korean system and Kenpo. What is your favorite part of mantis and drunken style?

I've wanted to try HEMA or Historical European Martial arts.

Is that like sword fighting or is it CQC?
It's basically sword fighting plus a few things like spears, polearms and even wrestling. This is mostly recreations from treatises written by people like Hans Talhoffer or Lichtenhauer.

I'd say the unpredictability and versatility...in Mantis you're fighting from odd angles on purpose and using the flowing movements and speed to disorient and control your opponent's limbs, trapping their attacks to the point where you can attack or counter from all positions, even pinned or reversed. In Drunken style, unpredictability is the key and the core is distraction and trickery...feigning loss of balance while being totally in control of both yours and theirs while relaxing your body to help absorb damage safely.

Like I said, I mostly chose kung-fu because it suited my natural skills, not vice-versa, so "favourite" part really is "it was a natural fit to me and my skills" <lol>

All of those are super cool. I don't know if there are any weapon schools in my area but I have been using Youtube to find "classes" online that can really help with bettering my skills.
