Hey everyone!

Last night I passed my black belt grading test and was awarded my shodan, or first-degree, black belt. I've been doing karate for about 4-5 years now so this was a really important moment for me. Anyway, I was just wondering if there's any more martial artists around here on the Forums? Martial arts has become a huge part of my life and I'd love to hear what part it plays in your life, no matter what style or variation you practice, or what grade you are. 

 

This probably should have gone under sports, but I feel like no-one ever reads that section :)

*WORKING ON DRAGON BACKSTORIES*

 

Dragons-

Sandwraith- Nibbles

Nibbles is my first dragon.

It was my first day at school of dragons, when Viking hunters were attacking Berk.

With the help of Toothless, and the other riders, we were successfully able to stop them, but not before they captured a few dragons.

With my axe, and brain, I managed to unlock Nibbles from the cage she had been trapped in.

We bonded then, and were set to start our journey at the school, together.

Since then, Nibbles has become a ruby crystal sandwraith.

Congratulations on getting

Congratulations on getting your black belt!

I did Tae Kwon Do up until red belt but I quit after that. It wasn't because I was bad at it, it was because didn't like the rigidity of it.

I would routinely beat black belts in competitions (I was too vicious back then, I refused to let anyone have even the slightest opening). I never considered tae kwon do (or tai chi or karate) to be actual fighting forms (too slow, lacked power, refused to control momentum) so I modified the forms to be a bit more practical for combat, I also broke a guy's leg during a sparring match because I threw him into a wall using the modified forms I came up with. 

 

I did train for a few years with the spear and found it to be very useful as a weapon. 

 

Martial arts isn't a huge part of my life since I haven't had to use it for 6 years and I never really liked it but I've held into the skill (modified forms) in case I might need to use it someday. To me martial arts wasn't much more than a tool to help fight off multiple bullies and I adapted it to fit my needs, namely the need to incapacitate multiple people all attacking me at the same time near simlutaneously. 

 

It's been 6 years since I've been in a spar or a fight, if you're up for a spar I'll take you, though I will have to wear a bit more comprehesive of a helmet due to my skull plating not having fused yet.

On the Subject of Hackers

please read this link, it helps to identify the different types of hackers. I have hacked computers, and servers in the past (despite not being the best at code) but I never do it for personal gain. Unfortunately the hackers most people refer to on the internet are crackers so they bring a bad light on the hacking community in general. I only learned to hack code because I needed to in order to hack my microwave and other software in my house.

 

Don't be a Cracker you ruin it for everyone!

Thanks!

I can see the benefits of creating a modified form, it must be pretty effective. I think a lot of the problems with modern-day martial arts is that they are very sports-focused, with a lot of competitive- and tournament-drive to them. Some people are just interested in self-defence, but these days it's all about competition and who has the fanciest kata or can score the best jodan kick...

Training with a spear sounds... cool? I've done staff training before and I like the idea of being able to use something like a broom or stick in the same way.

Hmm, maybe another time, I'm still kinda sore from my grading... ;) I hope your skull heals soon!

It isn't an injury it's a defect. Basically my skull plates haven't fused so my skull is like that of a baby's honestly staff and spear training are very similar just one has more weight at one end. And while staff training emphasizes striking spear emphasizes, well, stabbing.

 

I also learned how to throw knives, axes, and small swords. That was fun.

Congrats! What karate style do you practice? Are you going to try for the Nidan?

 

I used to do a lot of martial arts. Judo, Kyoukushin karate, Jujutsu, Ninjutsu and some Eskrima. I was too young to obtain a blackbelt back in the day (gosh darn age restrictions!) but I kind of quit doing martial arts when I got ill. It was fun while it lasted, though!

Hey Varku,
I do Okinawan-kan Goju-Ryu Karate-do Kyokai, if you'd like the official style ;) mostly just referred to as Goju-Ryu. Yep, definitely going for my Nidan, in a few years time.

I've never done anything other than karate, but I'm quite interested in doing something like Judo, Jujitsu, or Ninjitsu. I've never heard of Eskrima, though?

Good luck with getting your dans! That stuff ain't nothing, phew.

Ohh, Okinawan! Soft and hard, right? It's not very common where I live. Kyoukushin and variations thereof tend to be taught most often. Probably because my country's huge on the world championships or something.

Other martial arts are pretty cool to get the hang of. Jujutsu works super well because to me it feels like a combination between karate and judo, even though judo isn't very much my thing due to my build. Jujutsu is worth looking into, I learnt a lot of cool stuff from it.

 

Eskrima is cool stuff! It comes down to 'use whatever you can' and one learns to dodge and rather than block. It's really useful for disarming people and not getting hit in the meantime. I didn't actually know about it until I looked up the cool-looking fighting style of a Batman character back in the day (NO shame, or maybe a little)

LilyStark is quiet possibly SOD's biggest jokester(considering everything shes done so far) and genius when it comes to building things. She is 5.6 ft tall, 19 years old, with green eyes and , freckled skin. Her hair is often a mess and is as black as coal. She is often dressed like a pirate, and wears a red bandana around her forehead. She keeps her identity hidden for reasons of her own, but will talk to anybody about almost anything. Her personality is very playful, and she has a twisted sense of humour. Certain things can cause her to have severe anxiety attacks, some of them which involve her past. She is also Autistic, which is a key to her brilliance and wit. It also gives her a hard time sleeping, so she is awake 14.1 a day. Her main dragon is a Thunderpede named Hulk. He is blue with a white underbelly and is incredbly stong. She and her dragon share an unbreakable bond and will always be at each others sides. Her dragon is especialy watchtful of his rider when she gets light headed , and will not leave her side until she is feeling better. LilyStark is thin, and doesnt eat a lot but has an extremly high energy level. She is deathly afraid of jellyfish, starfishes with more than ten legs, seaweed(she is not an ocean person)and doesnt like to left alone in dark rooms. She is a good liar, but only lies if she has too.

Be careful!

Teaching yourself martial arts, particularly using online resources, and without proper guidance and supervision, can be dangerous! Please be careful... I know so many people who have injured themselves practicing martial arts unsafely. I'm not saying martial arts is a dangerous sport (well, yes it is, but only as dangerous as other sports as long as you do it properly), but it's really easy to injure yourself if you don't know what you're doing! Good luck I guess, but if you're serious about taking it up, then just explain to your parents that it's something you really want to do! I'm sure they'll understand. ;)

Ok

I have asked them; my Mom says no and Dad says yes. The ruler of the house (mom) obviously always got the final say. I have self taught myself many other things besides martial arts; how to hack, how to build robots, how to build electromotors, how to draw, and Ninth grade last year(im homeschooled, and i dont have a teacher so i dont realy have a choice), etc. The only things ive picked up are blocking punches and kicks, and the proper ways to punch or kick. Like i said, the basics.But i will take your advice and be careful : )

I was so bored with science

I was so bored with science class during ninth grade I thaught myself basic quantum mechanics and general relativity. I'm currently teaching myself how to build a liquid fueled rocket engine (the kind that NASA uses). And as for building robots I had to teachmyself how to do it too (in the days before the internet was a major thing)

Whoah you guys sound smart! The most I've done is take senior maths a year early, which I'm doing this year. Building a liquid fueled rocket sounds absolutely awesome.

I'm not really sure if I believe it myself to be honest, it's a bit out there... I mean, AK-47s?! Ah well. It's certainly an interesting read (albeit rather long, skip past the first three theories on weapons if you want).

Ghost Light the Flightmare froze my subject. Deal with it.

That are a lot of martial arts V!

 

I'm not a martial artist, yet. I really wanted to do Ninjutsu, but the nearest Dojo to learn it is in Rotterdam which is 40 minutes driving from where I live, and my parents already said that's too far away... Now I'm thinking about Budo Taijutsu (that's much closer, and cheaper), but that's from the age of 15 and I'm 14,5 years old (yay... -_-). 

 

Anyways, congrats Little Reindeer! ;-)

Thanks Ras! ;-)

I really wanted to try out ninjutsu too, but, also like you, there's no dojo near me! Ah well. I'm pretty happy with how my karate's going for the moment.

Gosh darn age restrictions...

Thanks!

Wow, Korea sounds like an amazing opportunity! I haven't done any tournaments as of yet, since I'm less interested in the competition side of things and more in the self-defence part, but I might try one or two. How did you go in your tournament?

I actually Came up to 2nd Place, It really took a lot of Determination and Energy, However, I'm quite Proud of Myself. (Unfortunately, I broke Two Fingers while over there, and still haven't Recovered.)

Wow great job! That's better than I've ever done (mostly cause I've never competed... lol). You should definitely be proud. Gee, broken fingers sound sore! I have some nice bruices from my grading but I don't think they would really compare.

TH4NK YOU ^^

If You're not into Sparring/Fighting/Etc. You should definitely try a Competition Restricted to Forum only. They're actually pretty Fun.

I also think Forum is Much Easier, However, That's just My Opinion.

Congratulations on your Ee Dan! (I'm assuming you passed?) My black belt grading was two hours as well, plus two hours preparation the night before and a two hour training seminar the day after, all run by the head of karate in my country! (an 8th Dan!) I'm still aching now...

Rosemary

Thanks a MILLION to Arrowalker for a AW-MAZING Pic of Rosemary!

Rosemary is hiccups sister, she is normally a very outspoken person who does not like strangers. She is shy around few people and loves to talk. she got her dragon when she went to her favorite cave when she saw the egg was hatching she looked over the edge of the cave where she was watching and fell down, the egg hatched and they bonded quickly. Now they soar the skies together with another freind they found injured. Shadow. They found her after escaping the hunters, she come up to them with a hurt leg they took her in and Shadow has been with them ever since.

 

This is Rosemary's weapon, credit to Mechfighter. Thanks!

 

Selecta Eye

This is Selecta and Sharp Shot, credit to Arrowwalker, TYSM!

Edit by me, base by animal girl

Name: Selecta Eye

Age: 18

Favorites: Rare dragons, Hunting common ones.

Dragon:Sharp Shot (Titan Whispering Death)

Occupation: Dragon Hunter, on ship and interrogator, not officially though

Backstory: 

she is just recently blind and has a hard time getting around, she dislikes people who just assume she can't do things because she is blind. She will try to prove herself which sometimes gets her into trouble. She is not heartless and will free the rare dragons (Behind the other hunters back) She will stand up to the other hunters if one of the dragons or prisoners are being hurt by them. She does not like the riders. Her mother died when she was young, Her father dissapeared at sea, her best friend Nathaniel is still at the base. Her freind and father-figure Ross runs a clothing shop near the middle of the base. She is good with a sword and is good at fighting if she needs to, those methods have been compromised since she has been blind though. She is strong and brave, good-hearted and rooted in her opinion. She loves to take long walks in the forest when on land, when on a ship she loves to talk to the other hunters and prisioners and maybe, if no one wants to talk she will talk to the dragons, she is careful around strangers but will talk to them to find out more, you could say she is an interrogator, but not officially. Once she trusts someone she will give her life for them.

BackStory:

Blitz’ Story

“Come on, Opal, let’s land for the night” Rosemary whispered to her Black and green Titian RazorWhip, Opal. Opal dived down towards a rocky island, the island was home to a variety of rocks and a small lake, with a few fish that you could see swimming along in the sparkling, clear water. Rosemary looks over the rocky terrain and spots a cave, small but big enough to provide the two shelter for the night.

“Opal, let’s go down to the pond first, for dinner, then to that cave” Rosemary whispers to Opal, Opal rumbles in agreement as she alters her course to go to the pond.

 

 With a few strong beats from Opal’s large wings you come to a stop at the pond. “Feel free to fish, Opal” Rosemary says as she grabs her fishing pole and begins to fish.

As she fished and Opal frolicked in the water a large dragon, with blue spongy wings and very developed legs walked stealthily up behind her, Rosemary only noticed it after she felt it’s warm breath on her neck. She froze immediately out of habit, but gathered up her strength and turned around, “It’s a-a SolarFlare Skrill!” She whispers to herself as the beautiful beast looked angrily into her eyes, it was filthy, from head to toe (or claw as the case may be) and angry as a hornet. Rosemary gulped and wracked her memory on facts about this dragon, rare, a ground dweller, hates getting dirty. “Wait that’s it! Come on, let’s go give you a bath” Rosemary said as she attempted to train the female SolarFlare Skrill, which only ended in the dragon attempting to bite her hand off, “Plan B” Rosemary said as she ran into the water, startling the SolarFlare Skrill, and causing it to chase her. Rosemary saw her chance as the dragon stopped and in that moment of unbalanced distraction Rosemary dunked the dragon and began to scrub it with some sweet-smelling leaves that she had found while going through her pockets for something, the leaves were there, Rosemary had no idea how they had gotten there but, (Thanks to Opal) they were there. The SolarFlare struggled for a moment, but when she realized Rosemary was cleaning her she stopped and happily sat there, enjoying being cleaned.

When Rosemary was finished the dragon nuzzled her. “I will call you Blitz, is that ok?” Rosemary asks, the newly dubbed Blitz nodded in agreement. “Ok then, Blitz, nice to meet you” Rosemary said as she put out her hand to tame Blitz, who complied.

Rosemary finished her fishing and the trio went to the small cave, where they ate their dinner and slept for the night.

Ever since that day Blitz has been a constant companion of Rosemary.
