Default martial arts

it seems that quite a few of you have experience with marital arts.

so im curious, why styles have you had experience in, how long, an rank achieved?

I have been practicing for 12 years and have blackbelts in Ju-jitsu, Kenpo, and Enshudo(invented by my sensai, combines ikido, jujitsu, boxing and kenpo)

I practised for 6 years officially in a style that combined mostly Kung Fu with Judo and Ju-jitsu. Occasionally my sensai would introduce techniques from Tae Kwon Do or Kendo, but that was only for students who were interested in specialising.

In the last two years of training under my sensai he took three of us to learn a weapon. Most students were taught basics with simple weapons, but we were given weapons chosen for us. I wanted a Bo but my sensai told me my style was better suited to Sai. He was right.

Because I had to move away from the dojo I had to give it up officially. But I still train the techniques I still know, waiting to find a decent dojo down here that actually knows what martial arts really is!

Used to do TKD. A guy there <Lower belt at TKD, but was a black belt in Karate> got on my nerves, so I left.

Spent 3 or 4 years in Tae Kwon Do, since then I've freestyled and taken up almost every form of medieval weapon form.

I used to be really into Tae-Kwon-Do, but after speaking with Tony Anthony (an ex-world class bodyguard) and reading his book I decided that It's not as necessary as I thought. I may take it up again someday, for fitness and fun, but there is little point in me taking it seriously.
This guy was one of the most brilliant Martial Artists in the world, and it didn't do him any good.

I did TKD. For about 6 years.. I was little when I started. Got to black belt when I was 11 ;D Then I left, 'cause I found people were challenging me, once people found out about it. Gah, people can suck..
