    I have been thinking of taking some martial arts training, but I want to know if it would be worth it, and what would be a very strong solid style to learn. What are your opinions on this, I got to green belt in kenpo and yellow in generic karate.

    I think my opinion might be a bit biased (seeing as I've been doing thaiboxing for about five years and I love it), but thaiboxing (or Muay Thai) is said to be the most efficient martial art there is. It's about controlling your body as well as your mind and there's a variety of techniques... Ummm. I dunno what else to tell you. If you have any questions about thaiboxing, feel free to ask. :)

    I don't think it really separates those two. Most self-defence systems are different from martial arts, but it doesn't mean martial arts would be all about offence... Maybe you should ask Lodui though, he's more pro than I am when it comes to muay thai. :D Ohh, and check out www.muaythai.com There's interesting stuff about the history. :)

    yea seriously, i hope your not looking to learn some form of fighting so that you can go out and beat the shit out of some people just for fun.

    its great to know how to fight and defend yourself, but its not cool to go out and pick fights...sooner or later your gonna pick the wrong dude and get the shit beat out of you...
