I registered under Kendo Bastard... That's cool because I've never come across a good martial arts forum. See you there, Speedfreak. BTW, what style?

I always wished I'd gotten into that, but never had the chance. My brother-in-law used to be an expert, but he hasn't messed with it in a few years. I'll have to let him know about it.

multi bastard- most recently kenpo. i have a brownbelt, just a few months from a black but the owner of the school i went to didnt pay the kenpo teacher so he left. i started in tae kwon do & moved to american kick boxing then muay tai.

monkey- its never too late.

shiner- i believe that kickboxing is a martial art, now the only class that can really be considered a traditional ma is muay tai. but all forms is deffinatley an art. & actually it is 1 of my favorites. i just stopped because of my broken leg... i would love to get back into it but its way to expensive where i live now.

Speed,

Too bad about the leg. Luckily I have never broken anything, because it would piss me off all year round (skiboarding in the winter, and mountain biking in summer, spring, and fall)

I think I would be a great kick boxer. I am about 6'3", and I have legs like a mule! I can't even get my hands around my calves, and they are all muscle!

How should I go about looking into this? Is kickboxing a fairly wide-spread sport?

shiner physically u sound like a kick boxing monster. if i were u i would go for the muay tai side of the sport. it originated in tai land & is pretty much their national sport. u use a lot of legs, which sounds perfect for u. legs r used to defend as well as attach. the shins are the weapon & the shield so be prepared for a few months of sore/swollen/bruised shins until the nerves are dead from abuse. the style also relies heavily on knee & elbow attacks... although most sanctions in the us do not allow the elbow attacks.

where do u live? the sport of kickboxing is becoming very mainstream recently & it should be fairly easy to find a club near you... club fees are the real problem (over $80/month where i live).
