Im not in one. My family taught me military techniques and the rest I learned on my own. Ive won tournaments in the black belt division tho! hehe Any martial art will do. Something involving wing chun, muay thai, ninjutsu, capoeira, or jeet kune do would be nice though. Thanks! Those are my five favorites and the ones I would like to train in formally.

Sorry .... I just saw this post!
I love this poem ... 'That I Clench My Fist' poem symbolizes what it is to be a black belt and not just to wear one!

Well, I can honestly say that everyone in my english class thinks I suck at martial arts now. haha I got nervous and screwed up SO badly!!! It was brutal. My friend who has seen me do these forms flawlessly had his head in his hands cuz he didnt want to see it. Oh the horror! I forgot some of the words and had to make up part of the poem during the presentation. Luckily, no one had heard of the poem, so no one noticed that part, lol. It was Five Forms Fist by Hanshi Tom. It was about the five animals of Shaolin kung fu. And to add to the agony, I FORGOT MY FORMS! lol I had to totally improvise on just some tricks that kinda looked like they fit into the poem. Argh, I hope nothing like that ever happens again. Ive only been nervous while performing twice in my entire life (counting today). *shudders* Maybe they thought it was a drunken form...
