Hi guys! My name is Lee I'm 25 years old from England and now living in Scotland. I've been vegetarian for just over a year now and vegan for about half that. I've been training in martial arts since I was 7, here's a video of me getting beat up for my 3rd Dan in freestyle karate; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5HtTBvJx4Q

I was hoping to chat with you guys about training and how veganism has effected you both in regards to your martial arts practice and competition if you do compete, I understand it is not every martial artists goal to fight and I respect that.

I eat a high fruit diet and I really love it, I joined here because there's such a wealth of free information on vegan body building, I can't wait to look like Bruce Lee! ;)

Tell me about your training and share any videos you have! :)

I'm not a martial artist but I wanted to say welcome and wow! Great video. Even not knowing much about the grading could tell that you really worked hard for it. Hope you get some more responses from people more qualified to comment. ;)

I checked out that video man, cool.

I've been doing Boxing for the last couple of years, and I would like to work on learning some kicks.

Hi there mate.

I've studied a few martial arts and have been doing Kendo as my primary. Swinging a bamboo sword for two hours is a... ahem.. unexpected workout.

The odd thing is that you need to know your body, everyone is a little different, for example I need to eat before and I can't drink during, I down all my water before hand with enough time for me to goto the toilet. If I drink water during I seem to get sluggish, sounds really odd but that seems to be me.

Every martial art has its own and different styles of kicks which ranges from simple kicks to free style kicks.

I do Muay Thai and have yet to jump into a fight camp while eating a vegan diet (I recently started). I'm curious to see how I will feel during the training and how fast I will recover!

we're coming outta the woodwork! Orange belt w/1 stripe Go Jui Bu-jitsu (karate+Judo+BJJ) and now working on my Level 1 in Krav Maga.....(really liking the Krav, seems much more self-defense direct application where MMA so far more suited for sparring, competition fighting....).

Veg for 12 years, vegan for 3 now. Had to tweak my food intake on KM days to better stoke up the energy/endurance needed. Got it pretty well now. Found that adding in some chia seeds into my bottle of water during workout helps too.

PLUS, married to a brit lass from yorkshire... ;)

I kickbox a couple of times a week and am a couple of belts off of going for my black belt.

I've been a veggie for 14 years now and am reducing my dairy intake whilst trying to get fitter and slim down. I don't find I do anything different on days I train to days where I'm not training or just at the gym. I try and eat cleanly as much as possible and take on a sensible amount of water.
