Martial Arts and Paintball?
 
Do those of you that practice both find any of your martial knowledge bleeding into your paintball strategies and tactics?

So far I have had moderate success with cat-stepping and horse stance. If nothing else, I'm getting 10x the leg workout than I normally do.

If no, then at least tell me about your best John Woo moment!

Got to the pistol forum and find a thread called The Final Agent Smith. There is a lot in there about his Tai Chi Pistol that you can check out.

Yep, all the time :D

And a lowered down variant. Basically, make a horse stance and then widen your legs a bit more and bend your knees 'till your butt is close to the ground. That's basically how I play in short bunkers.

Knowing how to fall helps too.:p

Strategy-maintain contact and control distance.

I find my firearms training comes into play a lot more often than any martial arts training I've had.

I trained in martial arts for 15 years with 3 of those overlapping competitive paintball. I noticed my agility and flexibility where a lot better when i trained in both at the same time. Most of all my balance in paintball was better than most people I played with. As far as mental skills translating from martial arts to paintball, I do know of any specific.

Anybody read it?
I haven't, but I've always loved the cover.
More people should play paintball in hakamas.

When I read the title of this thread I was thinking about ninjas playing paintball...
Too much GI Joe and Chinese movies today.

I have a couple of Hakamas, but I will pass on wearing them to play paintball.
