Martial Arts

Martial arts is something with which I’ve always find interesting and fascinating.

These are the three martial arts to which I have had exposure so far:-

Karate

Karate Demonstration in Mauritius

Karate was my first martial arts when I was still in primary school. I practised it for only two to three years though, after which I stopped partially due to studies and partly because I found it too rigid and slow. But I agree it has its own strong points as a martial art.

Ninjutsu

Actually I know very little about Ninjutsu. I was exposed to it only through my brother who was, and still is, a practitioner of this martial art. The art of the Ninjas, it is a rather intriguing martial art which I would like to learn more about. I guess it is more popular nowadays thanks to the anime Naruto. But surprisingly, I heard that Ninjutsu is banned in Singapore, where I currently reside. I do not know whether this is true though.

My brother and I did our first website about ninjas a long time ago.

Wushu

I really started out with Wushu in 2005. I began by learning by myself and from a friend with greater Wushu experience. Since then, I have had the chance to get a coach and I have participated in numerous Wushu performances.  Presently, I am still practising and learning Wushu, and striving for greater heights.

Wushu is more visually appealing and fluid than Karate I must say, and this is why it is my favourite martial art so far. But yes, I do question its use for self-defense, especially in its current form as Wushu Sport. Still it remains an excellent way to stay healthy and to build up character.

Wushu is a way of life… The Will to Excel and to Overcome… because Till the End, We Fight.
