Hi martial artists

i've been a martial artist for 20 years, mainly in wushu. Have been into

traditional fencing (foil and sabre)
kung fu (wing chun and jing wu)
escrima
aikido
taichi (yang style)
chi kung

I initially started fencing in my teens because of a fascination with weapons, which then became a fascination with the martial arts in general, and a love of wushu in particular. Have favoured full-contact, no rules arts, with emphasis on self-discipline and flow. My main thing now martial arts wise is tai chi. I love martial arts, tho nowadays it's more fun to dance than to fight

Aesthetically, I love to watch boxing and muyu thai - visually very satisfying - tho have never practised these myself.

The main benefit for me..hmm...Martial arts has been a safe way to explore aggression (my own aswell as others), and the martial arts scene and cool martial artists has provided a good environment for me to learn to channel and contain my own fear and rage.
Full contact is fun - but also painful and after 6 years with wingchun i got fed up with always walking around semi concussed and got into aikido (a brief 6 months spell whilst i lived in Tunisia, absolutely loved aikido but couldn't find a good teacher when i returned to my homecountry) then luckily was introduced to tai chi and chi kung which i have been into for the past 10 years.

i occasssionally got into fights and dodgy near-rape situations where i had to fight my way out when i was a young girl, but since getting into martial arts in a serious way (especially wing chun) i have never been in a fight or been physically assaulted. I still have the occassional stalker, but nobody has tried to jump me for many many years. martial arts has sharpened by ability to read body language, and so can just avoid dodgy people and get myself out of situations before they turn too ugly.

Tai chi has mellowed me out a lot, and the physical and energetic benefits are incredible. Tai chi is very good for my health,my back and joints especially, and in general for mental and spiritual wellbeing. really, i can't praise tai chi enough. It's very underrated and misunderstood art in the west because of hippies and new agers who have marketed it as a relaxation technique from the 60's an onwards.

If i had more time, i'd love to check out gun shooting - I mean target practice - and Kendo.

I am currently taking Tae Kwan Do, used to take Tang Soo Do.
It gives me a place to focus my mind and body, and a place to vent. We have sparring and weapon classes, so I get to work in a fair rang of stuff that lets me work out the tension I build during the day.
It's helped me meet some great people,including my current girlfriend.
My plans are to go as far as I can in it, and then stat taking Kung Fu from another academy more towards town. Maybe mix classes if I can.
