Hey I'm a student at America's Best Defense in Massachusetts and I was wondering... does anyone else take karate? where? what belt are you?Karate is SO fun, I think. Right now I am a green belt. We are learning nunchucks right now, although we've also learned bostaff.write to me!

Actually I do take karate.I just started in January.I take Kenpo Karate, in Texas (San Antonio more specifically) Kenpo is actually a different style of karate not just regular karate... if I'm explaining that right.Currently I'm a white belt, should be testing in another month for my orange belt.I think it's fun too, great to work out the upper body I've found. Alot of physical exercise and fun. As long as I just stop thinking :-P I have a problem with that when doing the techniques. I think about them beforehand and usually that's what causes me to mess up. But I'm learning. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Hey, immortalgodezz. That's the same type of karate I do! I was losing hope for a while...nobody had answered this question for nearly a week!

<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> cool, I went with Kenpo because I heard that it's more based in why you do what you do during the techniques and all that. Makes more sense to me if I have a reason to do this or do that. Besides the sifu/simu that I have are awesome people. I decided to join almost immediately after I met them. I have no regrets about it <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> Actually I didn't post before now because I didn't see the topic. I was just randomly browsing today and saw it. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> Do you have plans to stop at any particular belt color, or do you plan on going onto black belt? How long did it take you to get to green belt? Oh and btw, how old are you I'm 19 :-P

Hey, immortalgoddezz (it's katie, i'm just not signed in right now). No, i plan on becoming a black belt. i'm 14 yrs old. how about you? what belt do you plan on stopping at, if any?It's taken me 15 mos to become a green belt, and one of those mos I was in the hospital with an IV. Next month I graduate to brown. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Cool. I'd like to go onto black belt, I'm not sure if I'm going to or not. At this stage I feel really uncoordinated I hope though that after a few more months that feeling goes away. Congrats on getting to brown <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Yeah, don't worry. The feeling eventually goes away. It's very cool when you can show off your awesome moves and then look at the lower belts and think...was I ever that uncoordinated? <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

I take Shotokan classes. I'm a brown belt and there are only three belts: white, brown, and black. Its an intense workout. Does anyone else study shotokan?
