Did anyone see Sunday's episode of The Learning Channel's Top Ten Show??
Feb. 8th, TLC had a show called Top Ten in which they countdown various things in the world and rank the top ten. (obviously) This last Sunday's show was the Top Ten Martial Arts.
Tae Kwon Do was ranked 7th, Aikido was ranked 6th, Ninjitsu (http://www.winjutsu.com/
) I believe was 5th.
Number One, according to TLC's little poll, was Shoalin Kung Fu. There is a geniuine Shoalin monk in New York City who is teaching there. Very impressive.
All the same, I think I'll stick with Aikido. I just don't see myself climbing trees or busting up bricks or walking on nails anytime soon.
