Im currently studying Eskirma (filipino martial arts) but there is no belt system or form of rank. its more like military martial arts (used in times of self defense of loved ones) that tyoe of thing.
When everyone screams out save us..... I'll whisper no.

I'm a second degree black belt in Taekwondo. I got that rank several years ago, but I don't remember the date anymore, and my Black Belt Certificate isn't near my computer, so I'm not going to go find it now. I might be going for my third degree this May or June, depending on whether my schedule permits me to go enough to work towards it or not. I'm also taking special self-defense classes at the Taekwondo school from an instructor who also works with the military, special forces, the FBI, etc., but those classes do not have ranks. They focus primarily upon unarmed defense against an armed attacker.

I'm an honorary black belt because I took down a mugger outside a martial arts studio.

Congrats to all that actually made it, some of us are not so fortunate as to run into muggers.

Damn it Foamfoot. Why is it that you kill every good topic with a retarded response a few days late.

1st degree blackbelt in Taekwondo on Novmeber 4th 2005/6. Can't remember the year, it's been a while. I had to quit recently, due to my mom getting a job and us having no time. It sucks too, I was getting close to earning my second degree.

I don't consider Eskrima/Arnis de Mano/Kali as a Martial Art. Martial Arts are forms of combat widely practiced as a sport. Eskrima is in NO way a sport. It is a way of self-defense. You don't see people at Eskrima Competitions wackin' away at each other with plastic swords, daggers, and staffs because people who practice Eskrima practice to kill. It's not necessarily militaristic either. It's not only practiced by soldiers in the Philippine military but by civilians who wish to be ready if they are ever under attack.

I get what you mean and Our definitions Might be different in the term of martial art so I won't argue. I meant Militaristic as in self defence as you stated and I AM practicing to kill, just not on real people at the moment JKing.
