    i'm assuming that I wouldn't be able to do any martial art with them, but does anyone have any positvive expereinces/advice?

    Unfortunately I don't think you'll find a martial art that would be safe to do with nipple piercings. If it's grappling then they could easily get ripped out accidentally, and the same with striking if you catch a kick to the chest. As I've said before, starting MA was one of the reasons I got rid of most of my piercings.

I've heard about Krav Magra, but I can't see it being easily accessible. Anyone know anywhere in Bournemouth that has decent facilities too?
    I can't help you with specific places to go, but my advice is to try as many MA classes as you can find. You never know what you're going to be best at or enjoy most until you've had a look at a bit of everything. And don't worry about not being flexible - I wasn't at all when I started training last january and after a few months I was kicking up to head height with no problems at all.

    I'm guessing chun gun is a form? Good luck with your grading!

    I really prefer WTF, it's always felt more solid to me. ITF seems to be gaining popularity recently, maybe I just never noticed it when I was competing.

    Hazzard, EKKA karate is generally fine with piercings.

    I seriously doubt that, seeing as they appear to do a lot of sparring and competitions.

    Well obviously you're going to have to remove them then, but sparring is usually only 20 minutes per session anyway. I did it for about 8 years I believe, and never had issues with my piercings.
