I've been practicing White Crane Kung Fu for little more than a year and I am actually off due to knee problem...

Fun thing, I once had a dream about a combination of two movements, and when I tried it IRL, it was feel exactly as in the dream and worked very well. Even if it was a ND, it had some "impact" or influence on Real Life.

I guess practicing any sport or activity while Lucid Dreaming would have greater direct impact on Real Life technique / method.

Wow, I'm hoping to be a famous guitarist too! Hopefully I don't screw it up like some people....

But I did Karate when I was 7, and I hated it. I've been trying to find a martial art for me, but no luck so far.

Hmmm well have you ever heard of Capoeira? It's a brazilian martial art that is unlike any other martial art in the world, extremely entertaining but requires a lot of agility.

Brazilian? Did Anybody talk about Brazil?
Capoeira is cool, if the teachers focus on the fighting part of it. Some ppl just teach it more like a dance.. U dont need lots of agility to learn it, because u get the agility with time.

I've tried aikido for some months, but i wasn't having mutch fun, so i just stoped and looked for other MA. While i was searching other thing to do, i started jogging and working out, and kinda stuck to it.

*Bruno is a capoeirist yes

It is awesome. It's not a martial art focused in hurting people—in fact, most styles of capoeira don't even require the two opponents to ever touch each other during a game—it's acrobatic and rhythmic. I like its story a lot, and the fact that it enables me to so many things. I mean, before the Frenchmen started bragging about their new sport, Le Parkour, capoeirist kids all around already did this kind of thing: running, climbing, reaching unreachable places etc.

I like how there's a sense of brotherhood to a capoeira circle, even when you're in a foreign house and don't know anyone in the circle. I like how it draws people together: there's no circle in Brazil without at least one gringo in it, and most of the time they don't even know how to speak Portuguese, but they get along with the rest really well.

When I went to Bahia, somebody told me about a house in a small city about a half hour from Porto Seguro, which had a great master. When I arrived there, I found people talking in all languages. First person I met was a Scot. There were two women talking in French, I soon found out one of them was Brazilian, and the other, a Lebanese–descendant West Bank refugee. There were people from Africa and Europe and America, it was awesome.

I really love capoeira 8D

Haha what u talked about Le Parkour is right!
I work as an interpreter, and there is a lot of americans that get here willing to see capoeira presentations, and wanting to know where they can get capoeira lessons in their country. The history of capoeira is amazing. I dont feel like writing, so http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capoeira tounge2

I tried capoeira when i was a kid, but the teacher was awfull. Its cool, waaaay better than BJJ, but Im not realy into it :D.

I always wondered if any distinct for of martial arts had an advantage over another. For example, say one person trained in Karate were to fight another who was trained in Jiu Jitsu, and were about the same level of proficiency in their respective arts (is it even comparable?), who would have the advantage?

If your talking about which is better in a purely combative context, in your example, the BJJ style tends to fair better, at least in my old dojo and most UFC battles (as most hand to hand combat tends to end on the ground). Between all the other styles out there it would be a matter of opinion smile As with most fights usually the more conditioned person will come out better in combat (not including weapon work though)

I've been doing Tae Kwon Doe for almost 8 years now, and it's pretty good. (Although my endurance is still horrible - but I don't think anything will change that).

BTW, no offense meant in this, but I don't think people would want to learn from a fourth degree - I think you'd need to be around 6th or 7th degree to start your own school - the head instructor at my school is 7th degree (or 8th, IDK, I think he's 8th in 1 Tae Kwon Doe - ish style and 7th in another one). You could be an instructor though at 4th, degree. Not saying tha tI'm an expert or anyhting - I'm only first degree, but I wouldn't really enjoy taking lessons in a school where the head instructor is only 4th degree...
