In 10 days, I’ve got a final doctor appoint for a broken hand which has put me on the sidelines from martial arts since last December. During this time, I’ve made a very conscious decision that when I get cleared from my doctor to go back that I would not quit. Ever. I absolutely love studying martial arts. I also love the friends I’ve made in this arena.
Friends like Dan Ross who practices Tae Kwon Do, Chinese Kempo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Debbie Goodman who does Kung Fu and Tai Chi plus she added that she will hang out at her friend’s schools and practice whatever they are doing.
One of my closest friends is named Bob Judd. He does Shotokan, Shuri Ryu, Dux Ryu, Tang Soo Do, Tae Kwon Do, and good old-fashioned street fighting.
My friend Amanda Meeks has done Hapkido and Tae Kwon Do. Reggie Cochran is one of the leaders for Chuck Norris System.
- Tang Soo Do
- Muay Thai
- Mixed Martial Arts
- Krav Maga
In total, there are over 150 different styles of martial arts. To see a more comprehensive list, check out this link: Martial Arts Styles. I would also encourage you to follow my amazing friend Andrea Harkins on her blog to learn more about this amazing activity.
In coming weeks, on Saturday’s I’ll talk further about this. If you have any questions about this, comment here or message me on Facebook. This applies to anything I post on this blog. If I don’t have an answer, I will find out what it is.
