Zen Posted June 12, 2008 Share Posted June 12, 2008 [color=royalblue][size=1] The topic is simple. I know the OB isn't populated by a bunch of lazy couch potatoes (atleast I'm not). So the question is, how does the average Otakuboards member stay in shape, and what are some of your favorite physical activities (i.e., sports, games, what-have-you). For me, its as follows: [b]Martial Arts:[/b] a big passion for me that started with four years in Tae Kwon Do. After getting a black belt, I moved onto doing other forms to broaden my horizons. This was helped along with my love and interest in mixed martial arts (such as UFC, WEC, etc). I love the thrill of a sparring match, grappling, and what not. I've picked up skills in kickboxing, submission grappling (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) and I even joined my school's wrestling team for a season. Me and a few of my friends occasionally get together and have friendly body-shot/grappling fights (no one gets hurt really). It's a good time, definetly the most entertaining physical activity for me to take part in. And when no one is around, nothing is wrong with a little shadowboxing and hitting my punching bag. Good stuff. I've also since picked up basic tricking and free-running from martial arts, which is another acvitivy unto itself, and very fun. [b]Dancing:[/b] I've been dancing for sometime now, but most of it was self-taught or through watching music videos. None the less, I became good enough at it for people to ask for me for lessons, which I always turn down. Of course, my main style is Hip Hop, and that was my only style until this past year when I joined my school's latin dane club, and made the ensemble group. My horizons have since been broadened. Dancing is really, really fun. I love doing it, and I've been put on stage several times over the past year in order to show what I can do. Just give me a beat, and I'll be dancing. Also I've picked up what most call "hardcore dancing" or "throwing down" at Death Metal and hardcore punk shows, which is just as fun, though often dangerous. My skills in martial arts definetly flow over into this in an interesting way. Fun times. [b]Basketball:[/b] I've loved basketball for a very long time. I used to play on a team in my Jr. High days, but after my first season, I realized that I loved playing streetball one-on-one or three-on-three far more than having a whole team relying on me. There's nothing quite like a good game of basketball. It's just an exhilarating game for me. My family used to own a goal, and there is one in my neighbourhood out front that I play on often. I love the game. Go Celtics! Heh. So what about you?[/color][/size] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
