"the art of 8 limbs" - 2 hands, 2 elbows, 2 knees, 2 feet.
Yea I got into it also because it's more realistic. I don't like stuff like tae kwan do and Thai chi, karate etc. basically "sport" martial arts. I think it's a waste of time. I study Jeet Kune Do, also known as Jun Fan Gung Fu - its Bruce Lees philosophy on martial arts. It's basically designed to be most affective in a real street fight situation.
