What do you guys think?  I'd have to go with martial arts (blows, grapples and throws) seconded by martial arts (pointed or bladed weapons).

  • You dont really think the rules i make apply to me do you?

Posted 18 September 2004 - 06:14 AM

i chose Martial Arts (blows, grapples and throws) cause well up until i was 15 i was in Martial Arts. And it was the only real activity i really got into...i might get back into it soon but more for my own staying in shape than for belts (the only things i forgot were the Kata's and i have them all on a video my sensei gave me years ago so i could practice out of the Dojo)

kendo and the like....always wanted to have a go at them. I might be able to look damn cool by picking up Talon's katanas and spinning them around, but it doesn't mean I know what the frick I'm doing....

.... wacko.gif Maybe I should cut down on that kinda thing.

Apparantly, over on Exchristian.Net, they say that I'm "probably the smartest person" on UM....that is so cool...
