Any drivers out here that are masters in martial arts and who is your favorite?

I,m a 3rd degree black belt in karate.Took it up when I was 16.Still in high school and kept up with learning it when I first started my OTR job.Has got me out of troubled cituations more than once.First thing I was taught by my master was to never start a fight before telling that person I was a 3rd degree black belt.When some body came at me with a knive,pole,club,I would always warn them that I would stick that weapon up there ass.Guns they would,ve had to be close enough to disarm them before they shot me.My favorite was Bruce Lee.Who,s your,s Jackie Chan,Stevan Segal,Jean Claude Van Damme,Chuck Norris,Jet Li.Bruce Lee was the reason I took it up.But lost that when I was 35 because Thats when I was diagnosed with MS and my reflexes were getting to slow to continue futher along with my karate.

I know it was designed for defense.I did,nt say anything about me taking on the world,all I was saying is it got me out of some pretty hairy conflicts and especially in Nam were I went for while I was in the Marines.Asfor Kung Fu,TaiChi,Judo and Sensai I really had no interest in them.And one thing I,m not doing is BRAGGING about my 3rd degree black belt.But I will brag about my 5million miles of safe driving awards from the state of OHIO.Thats I can do now is look atmy awards for 1mil,2mil,3mil,4mil and the last one of 5mil miles of safe driving awards

OK  What is Karate to YOU ???  Karate is noting more than MIND CONTROL you appear to have the attitude going that you a #3 Dan Black and a teenager who can take on anyone that comes his way... THAT will become your defeat real quick... I raised 3 into the martial arts as a father with 3 in highschool and one went on to become 3X black belts via different arts ie  Judo and 2 variations of Karate and now a Black in Shalin as well a doctor and he is a big ol boy so "bone breaker.." You are never UNDEFEATABLE thougth but even my son thinks he is undefeatable but I think in real life that he knows one day his match will come when he is put down real quick by someone smaller... I as a sensai have had dinner with David Carradine as well as Keith and his dad and met with Segal a few times but not as contestants or even in matches and from their education I have learned that only a loser brags as to how good he is even in the ring... Karate was designed for DEFENSE...
