Now, probably all of us here would consider ourselves to be martial artists (to some extent at least). I'm interested to know how you define yourself - that is, how you feel that are a martial artist. Do you live the philosophy? Do you fight hard? Are you an excellent student or teacher, adept in forms and theory? Etc, etc, etc... Personally I consider myself to be a novice martial artist. With only three years of training under my belt, I'm still a "grasshopper". However, I am only 16 years old and hope to continue my studies as long as possible. I think the best way to put it is that I'm a hard worker when it comes to MA. I train roughly six days a week (mostly at home in my own time) and love every minute of it. My long term goal is to gain a firm grasp of many concepts - jack of all trades, master of none. In particular, I look to sharpen my strikes and direct my natural speed. So I'd call myself a hard-working martial artist. You?
