Hi everyone! I am curious about the RM's point of view on martial arts, in particular Wing Chun (or Wing Tsun). And would I be able to carry on learning through the RM?

There is an RN/RM Martial Arts Associaction to help encourage train & compete in many martial arts.

You should be able to continue undergoing martial arts tuition in the majority of mainstream arts & some of the more obscure ones also.

Wing Chun Gung Fu? I did that for a while, really enjoyed it and would be excellent if i could start it up again whilst in the RM.

Martial Arts

Over the years I've trained in Boxing, Jujitsu, Aikido and finally settled on Ninjutsu. There are many martial arts. Most are as effective as each other. However, my belief is that they don't make you invincible, they just mean you have a better chance.

There was a programme screened some time ago on the Discovery Channel. It was called: The Ultimate Warrior. It gave displays of effectiveness in all kinds of martial arts. Albeit: At the end of it, on this occasion, the ultimate warrior was the Ninja. However, even he said, winning in hand to hand combat, is down to the individual's ability in any martial art and how they perform on the day/night.

I would recommend martial arts training though. It keeps you fit, flexible, builds your confidence and most importantly puts you in control.

The Corps actively promotes sports and martial arts, so if this is your type of thing, then go for it.


Cheers

Steve

Aikido looks to be very similar in principle to Wing Tsun, that being you use the attackers motion against them. the only obvious difference appears to be that Aikido uses bigger movements.

I was once told that if you fought in a phone box wing tsun would be the best style to use. due to is small intricate nature.

Is this a fair observation if so Aikido looks to be right up my street as I'm only 5'10 and not exactly a the biggest of guys.

MMA stands for Mixed Martial Arts, and its really just all the stuff you see in the UFC, youtube Kimbo Slice, hes the man *text deleted*!

I used to do Shaolin Kung Fu, but I'm starting Muay Thai and BJJ after christmas, I find traditional forms of martial arts (possibly excluding ninjutsu and aikido) too slow to learn, why learn a form when you could be sparring? But if Wing Chun is something you're into, go for it. Whoever said BJJ is just that "rolling around stuff", Google it, it's one of the most effective martial arts there is.

I was just asking what it was as what I have seen looks like rolling about. I mean its get your opponent on the floor and grapple type martial art. no offence meant it was just an uneducated observation.
